Mrs. Jeannie McClough-Ford, daughter of the late T.L. Johnson and the late Lillie B. Lawson, was born in Stockton, CA on December 12, 1943.

Jeannie accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior, uniting with First Baptist Church of Pittsburg, CA and was a public confession of faith in Christ by Rev. W. S. Woods.

She received her education through the Pittsburg Unified School District and graduated from Pittsburg High School.

Jeannie met and united in holy matrimony to Mack James McClough Sr. in December 1960. This union was blessed with three sons: Mack James, Jr., Zifert Wayne and Terry Eugene; and one daughter, Antoinette Francis. Jeannie later married Scywilla Houston Ford.

She was a dedicated housewife and family manager. She was a renowned chef and baker at heart. Friends and family raved about her Sock-It-To-Me cakes. Jeannie's Sock-It-To-Me cakes were featured in an article published by the Pittsburg Post Dispatch in the early 1970's. The article detailed the delectable and savory desires of each piece of cake. Additionally, the article boasted the number of cakes Jeannie donated to various charities over the years which provided support to many acquaintances and social groups. Jeannie will be remembered for her commitment to delight others with her love of baking.

Jeannie McClough-Ford departed this life on November 25, 2014 and was preceded in death by her parents, T.L. Johnson and Lillie B. Lawson: stepfather, A. W. Lawson; two husbands: Mack James McClough, Sr. and Scywilla Houston Ford.

She leaves to cherish her legacy, her daughter, Antoinette (Ricky) Moore, Mack J. (Lynn) McClough Jr., Zilfert McClough, Terry (Kim) McClough; brother, Zifert
Johsnon; sister, Ida Lawson; four stepchildren: grandchildren; great-grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends.
