Mrs. Grace Langford, 91, of Chatsworth, was escorted to heaven by angels on Monday, June 26, at her residence. She had looked forward to this day all her life, the day when she would see her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Grace was born in Murray County on July 18, 1925. Being the oldest child of nine, she lived her life taking care of others. Grace cared for her younger siblings, her children, her parents, her husband, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, always placing the needs of others before herself.
Grace was a member of Holly Creek Baptist Church for over 60 years. After moving in with her daughter, she attended Chatsworth First United Methodist Church. She loved going to church, reading her Bible and singing hymns.
Grace was an excellent cook and also enjoyed sewing and gardening. Although Alzheimer's disease had robbed her of many of her memories and abilities, she continued to be a blessing and delight to her family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Grady and Cleo Caylor; her husband, Dafney Langford; sister, Ruth Sneed; and brothers, Arnold, Bill, Don and Ronnie Caylor.
She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Terry and Lillian Langford of Chatsworth; daughters and sons-in law, Deborah and Ted Yarbrough of Chatsworth and Joan and John Wood of Calhoun; grandchildren, Cale Langford of Acworth, Jonathan and Aileen Langford of Woodstock and Ashley and Thor Neff of Winder; and great-grandchildren, Cole, India and Cessna Langford. Sisters Wanda Grant, Peggy Jones and Judy Kendrick also survive.
Special thanks are extended to her loving caregiver, Linda Wagnon, and to Dr. Robert Cook and his staff.
Services to celebrate the life of Mrs. Grace Langford will be Friday at noon from the chapel of Peeples Funeral Home in Chatsworth with Pastor Tamlyn Collins and the Rev. Danny Cochran officiating. Interment will be in Murray Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends at the funeral home from 10 a.m. until noon on Friday.
In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to the charity of your choice.
