Ada Lankford
Ada Lankford, 86, of Sterling, passed peacefully away with her family by her side on Saturday, Aug. 29, 2009.
Ada was born April 12, 1923 in Belgrade, MT, the daughter of Silas Henry and Grace Permilia Jones Barclay. Ada grew up and lived her entire life in the Sterling / Grandview area. She attended schools in Grandview and Springfield and graduated from Aberdeen High School. She then attended Albion Normal School, where she received her teaching certificate. She later received her B.A. degree from Idaho State University.
On Oct. 14, 1947 she married Olen Lankford and they began their lives together with Olen farming and Ada teaching school. She taught school for nearly 40 years and loved every minute of it. Ada was a great teacher. She taught hundreds of students over the years and she absolutely loved every one of them. She had a great ability to inspire and bring out the best in people.
Ada was a tiny little thing with a big heart and lots of energy. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many different callings - but her favorite was working with the Boy Scouts. She served for 30 years in the scouting program and spent countless hours helping many boys on their way to achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. She was one of the first women to receive the Silver Beaver Award, received the District Award of Merit, and was inducted into the Boy Scout Hall of Fame.
Family was also very important to Ada – she was blessed with two wonderful sons, Larry and Lane. They were her pride and joy. She spent many hours worrying and fussing over them. In return they blessed her life with two daughters-in-law and seven grandchildren whom she adored. Ada has always been a hard worker who enjoyed spending time with her family, gardening, camping and fishing every summer at Cherry Creek. To everyone she met she gave unconditional love, encouragement, guidance and she helped shape their lives for good. She will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her children, Larry (LuAnn), Lane (Kimberly) and grandchildren, Connor, Tara, Alyssa, Laura, Bryan, Logan and Whitney; two brothers, Earl Barclay and Duane Barclay. Her husband, parents and sister preceded her in death.
The funeral service was held at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 1, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Lakeview Ward Chapel in Springfield. The viewing was from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 31, at the church and from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. Tuesday before the funeral service. Interment was in the Aberdeen Cemetery.
The family thanks Ashley Manor for their loving care of Ada during the past three years.
