Jill Christine Ford Ramsdell, 44, of Gardner, KS passed away June 29, 2019. Cremation. Inurnment at a later date at Phoenix, AZ. A Celebration of Life will be held for Jill on Saturday, July 13, at 1 pm at the Hampton Inn Convention Center, 151 S. Cedar Niles Rd. in Gardner, KS. In lieu of flowers, an account is being established for the care of Jill’s children. If you wish to assist, you may send checks to Thomas Ford at 954 Stone Creek Circle, Gardner, KS 66030. Arrangements: Bruce Funeral Home, Gardner, KS (913) 856-7111.Condolences may be left at

Jill was born Dec. 20, 1974 in Stockton, CA to Thomas and Judith (McLeod) Ford. She grew up in Stockton, CA, Houston, TX, Charlotte, NC, Phoenix, AZ and Irvine, CA where she graduated from University High School. Jill then moved to Overland Park in 1992 and attended Johnson County Community College while working at St. Thomas Episcopal Preschool. Jill married Darin Ramsdell in Overland Park, KS on June 1, 1996. They moved to Gardner in 2002. Jill’s greatest source of joy was her children: Juliet, Logan, Malory and Tyson. Jill enjoyed volunteering at their school, their many extra-curricular activities, sports and she served as a Girl Scout Daisy Troop Leader.

Jill’s jobs included Blue Chip Cookies in Leawood, Crème-de-la-crème in Overland Park and finally, joyfully, as an Early Childhood Paraeducator for eight years at Moonlight Elementary in Gardner, where all four of her children attended. When Jill’s oncologist advised her to quit working at the school, Jill, never a quitter, signed on to sell Rodan + Fields skincare line. Jill also enjoyed attending New Life Church, Gardner, KS.

Jill lived the “it takes a village” philosophy, in that she delighted in social activities with her neighborhood besties, her abundance of loyal friends and all of their children. Jill was passionate about reading – especially near a window, where she could watch birds on her many feeders. Her favorite bird was the hummingbird. A special hobby of Jill’s, when in California, was walking along the beach searching for sea shells and sea glass.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Judith, in 1994 and husband, Darin, in 2017. Jill is survived by her children: Juliet-20, Logan-17, Malory-14, Tyson-11 and her father Thomas Ford, all of Gardner, KS; brother, Scott Ford, Overland Park, KS and sister, Julie Ford Reister, Newport Beach, CA and in-laws Bob and Debbie Ramsdell, Gardner, KS.

Jill’s smile and positive outlook were contagious. In her words, “you’ve just got to keep on keepin’ on!”

I am writing to give your family comfort from the scriptures. I promise you, the scriptures say YOU WILL SEE JILL AGAIN ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES.
Acts 17: 24,25
24 The God who made the world and all the things in it, being, as he is, Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in handmade temples 25 nor is he served by human hands as if he needed anything, because he himself gives to all people life and breath and all things.
Then Jesus raised his eyes heavenward and said: “Father, I thank you that you have heard me.42 True, I knew that you always hear me; but I spoke on account of the crowd standing around, so that they may believe that you sent me.”v 43 When he had said these things, he cried
God has resurrected humans in the past
John 11:39-45
39 Jesus said: “Take the stone away.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to him: “Lord, by now he must smell, for it has been four days.” 40 Jesus said to her: “Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”t 41 So they took the stone away. out with a loud voice: “Lazʹa·rus, come out!”w 44 The man who had been dead came out with his feet and hands bound with wrappings, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them: “Free him and let him go.”

God is eager to do it again
1 Corinthians 15:26
26 And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.b
