Ila Samantha Kirk


Ila Samantha Ford-Kirk, born Jan. 19, 1923, passed away July 5, 2019, at her home in Roff, surrounded by her family and friends. She was 96.
Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Roff Pentecostal Holiness Church, 601 E. Main in Roff.
Visitation will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. today at Criswell Funeral Home, 815 Arlington St. Ada. Pastor Cary Gerth officiating.
She married James Patrick Kirk on April 30, 1937, in DeQueen, Arkansas. She was a pastor's wife for 57 years.
She was the most humble, caring person you could ever hope to meet. She loved everyone she met, and they loved her. She never had step-grandchildren; in her eyes, they were all her own. She never divorced her in-laws; if you married into her family, you were family for life.
She was preceded in death by her father; mother; nine siblings; her husband, James Patrick Kirk; her son, Jimmie Leon Kirk; a granddaughter, Illa Samantha Kirk; a grandson, George Matthew Kirk Jr.; and a daughter-in-law, Linda Joyce McClure-Kirk.
She is survived by one son, George Matthew Kirk Sr. of Roff; three daughters, Ella Ross and husband, Charles, of Roff, Mary and John Brown of Granbury, Texas, and Susan Householder and husband, David, of Paris, Texas; 12 grandchildren; over 100 great- and great-great-grandchildren and countless nieces and nephews.
Pallbearers will be Chris Householder, Eric Householder, Kevin Lindsey, Tylor Lindsey, Jace Lindsey, and William Spatz III. Honorary bearers will be James Patrick Kirk, Ayrton Daniels and Dustin Dewayne Kirk.
