Ada Kate Fitzgerald Burt Ford
Birth: Sep. 23, 1909
Clarke County
Mississippi, USA
Death: Nov. 26, 1983
Meridian
Lauderdale County
Mississippi, USA

Daughter of Thomas Alexander Fitzgerald and Annie Laura Mayfield Fitzgerald.
Mother of three children, Iris Yvonne, Adron Clarence, and Emma Lou. Second husband was Alfonso Ford.
Kate, as she was known, worked for many years in the Cotton Mill in Laurel, MS and then at Alden Mills in Meridian, MS.
After the death of her husband Odis Burt, she went back to school and became a Licensed Practical Nurse. A very good one, many of her co-workers and patients said.
After she was forced to take disability retirement, she made her home near her daughter Emma Lou Price at Toomsuba, MS.
She loved her family and took great pleasure in the annual family reunions. She was a great cook and made the best
Christmas fruit cakes ever made!
