Vara Ford Baynham obituary - 1945
Mrs. Vara Ford Baynham, wife of R.G. Baynham, sr., died at her home on South Broadway at 5 o'clock this morning following an illness of two months.
Born in Stewart county, Tennessee, near Cadiz, Kentucky, on Oct 25, 1881, Mrs. Baynham came to Providence forty-six years ago at the time of her marriage to Mr. Baynham, who had come here the previous year. Mrs. Baynham had been a member since girlhood of the Methodist church, and was a charter member of the Woman's Missionary Society of the Providence church. Mrs. Baynham's family and her home were her chief interests. Her devotion as a wife and mother was noteworthy, and one of her finest traits was her readiness to speak kindly of everyone. She took justifiable pride in her success with flowers, and the beauty of the ground about her home is a testimonial of her skill.
Survivors are the husband; two sons, Richie G. Baynham, jr., Lexington, and Jefferson Baynham, Providence; four grandchildren, Mary Ann and Jefferson Baynham, jr., Providence, and Richie III and David, Lexington; one brother, Harold G. Ford, Detroit, Mich.; one sister, Mrs. Kate Acree, Model, Tenn.; and a number of nieces and nephews. A son, Ford, died at the age of nine months, and another son at birth.
Funeral services will be held at the home at 4 p.m. Friday, with the Rev. T.G. Hackney, pastor of the Methodist church, officiating, assisted by the Rev. Benjamin Connaway, pastor of the First Baptist church.
Burial will be in Lakeview cemetery.*
