Janet Marie West Ford, age 62, a New Castle resident, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, July 29, 2020. She was a patient at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana.
She was born September 21, 1957 in New Castle, Indiana and was a daughter of the late Lester and Loretta Agee West. She attended Foursquare Gospel Church and was active in the D.I.V.E. program at one time.
