Delphia (Dee) Ann Ford Adcock passed away Sunday, March 29, 2020, at the age of 78. Dee’s immediate family will gather for a private burial and plans include a celebration of her life when public health restrictions have been lifted.

Dee was born in Marshall, Texas, on October 13, 1941, to Marion and Margie Hines Ford. Early in life, Dee made a personal decision to trust Jesus as her Lord and Savior; and, she was baptized by her dad, Reverend Marion Ford, at Oaklawn Baptist Church in Bellmead, Texas.

On October 27, 1967, Dee married the love of her life, Jimmy Dwaine Adcock; and, on November 11, 1974, Jimmy and Dee welcomed their son, Bradley Dwaine Adcock, into their lives.

A graduate of Mary-Hardin Baylor, Dee began her life-long career in public education. Graduates from Ingleside High, LaVega High, and Midway High will recall Mrs. Adcock as their business and typing teacher who had a unique balance of discipline & tenacity with a dash of humor—this included distributing elevator passes to incoming freshman in a high school with no second floor!

Following retirement, Dee and Jimmy relocated to Riesel, Texas, to be nearer to their immediate family. She was an active member of First Baptist Church Riesel and loved the ladies in her Sunday School class. She loved Brown Pig sandwiches, Big Red and Bluebell Ice Cream but the greatest of Dee’s joys has been the privilege of picking up her grandson and granddaughter from Riesel ISD each day and caring for them in the afternoon—this included snacks stashed away for them to find, and plenty of fun things to do together.

Dee was preceded in death by her father, Marion Ford; her mother, Margie Hines Ford; and, her infant brother Roger Dale Ford.

Dee is survived by her husband, Jimmy; son, Brad and his wife, Traci, and their children Maverick and Kymber; one sister, Brenda Dunks and her husband Darryle; and, one brother, Jonathan Ford and his wife, Deborah, countless nieces and nephews; and a whole host of friends.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to children and youth ministries of FBC Riesel or an animal rescue of your choice in Dee’s name.

Delphia was one of my dear friends in Jr. hi and high school in Moody. Her parents lived across the street from my grandparents on Avenue F in Moody and we had some great slumber party memories from those years. I loved her family and she was a dear, sweet friend. I, unfortunately, lost touch with her, after we graduated colleges, and married and started our own families and moved away from the Moody area. She was a wonderful person who had a loving heart and a great personality. I will always cherish the fun times we shared growing up in Moody, TX and those slumber parties and staying up so late and poor Brother Ford would have to come upstairs at least 4 or 5 times a night and say "now you girls need to get quiet because tomorrow is a work day for me and I need to get some sleep so you'll do do. You are making too much noise! And I am sure we were. And of course we all thought we were grown in 7th grade! I know you will miss her and I just feel bad that I did not make it over to Riesel to visit her after we moved back to Waco area. I kept saying I would and we had house guests the weekend of your golden weddinganniversary party and hated so much to miss that. Anyway, my sincere condolences to you and your son and his sweet family. May you find comfort in the beautiful memories and years you shared together. My love and sympathy, Lynda McKamie Swoveland (and Duane)

Mrs. Adcock was my typing teacher at Midway and was a true inspiration. She spent many a morning from 7-8am administering practice typing tests to me so that i could perform well at UIL typing competition. I ended up winning district, which in part helped to finance my college education at Baylor. She had faith in me when I had little in myself, and I am forever grateful for her. God bless her and her family.

Mrs. Adcock was one of my favorite Midway teachers... I had her for typing and always enjoyed her classes. My condolences to her family during this sad time. May God's love bring you comfort. Kindest regards, Pam Bethke Cooper, MHS class of 1976

Such a sweet and funny lady. I'll always remember her laugh. I'll also never forget the time I stayed overnight with her while Mr. Adcock and Brad were out of town. The dog drug a lizard in the house and we were both too scared to get near it, so we ended up calling Mr. Bartley over to take care of it. It was crazy. There was a lot of laughing AND crying that night. Lots of other wonderful memories, too. She was precious.
Prayers and hugs to her sweet family. I know your hearts are aching but also rejoicing that she's with the Lord she loved so much.
