Ora Frances Radford Huff

Ora Frances Radford Huff, 96 of Floyd, went home to be with the Lord Monday, August 26, 2013. She was glad to be relieved of this earthly body and looked forward to being in Christ’s presence. Mother was a lifelong homemaker, very talented as a professional seamstress and an excellent cook, always inviting others to join her and “Little Boy” in their meals. She loved flowers and was blessed with a green thumb.

She was a lifelong member of the Church of the Brethren and always enjoyed being a part of this faith. She will be joining her loved ones; her husband of 61 years, Ewell Vane “Little Boy” Huff; her father, Peter Bernard Radford; her mother, Lula Jane Sweeney Radford; a baby sister, Marie Radford; brothers, Wilton McRae Radford and Richard Garfield Radford.

She is survived by her son, Dorsey Vane (Wanda) Huff; daughter, Joyce Marie (Larry) Reed; a grandson and wife, Timothy and Kathy Reed; great- granddaughters, Kristine Marie and Lelia Coleen Reed. She is also survived by her sister-in-law, Lois Radford; and a niece, Annie Ruth Wood.

Most recently Bonnie and Junior Harlow shared their home and provided excellent care for our mother. The family also appreciates the excellent care given by her daughter, Joyce Reed, Sally, Reggie, and Loretta.

Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Friday, August 30, 2013 at the Maberry Funeral Home Chapel with the Rev. Roy Turpin and the Chaplain Stuart Kelly officiating. Interment will follow in the Jacksonville Cemetery. Family will receive friends from 2-4 pm and 6-8 pm on Thursday, August 29, 2013 at the funeral home.
