Gabriele “Gaby” Sabine (Mack) Ford
Kind and Generous -
Gabriele “Gaby” Sabine (Mack) Ford, age 57, of Dillsburg, passed away with her family by her side on Saturday, January 12, 2019. Gaby was born on Tuesday, March 28, 1961 in Ulm, Germany.
Gaby’s survivors include her husband of nine years, Joseph “Joe” Anthoney Crawford; her two sons: Sascha Boris Ford of the Borough of Dormont in Pittsburgh, Benedikt “Ben” Joseph Ford of Harrisburg; her sister, Susanne Mack of Ulm, Germany; her step-mother, Helga Larisch and her husband, Bernd, of Gaggenau, Germany; and several nieces and nephews.
Gaby loved gardening and tending to her various flower beds. She was also a big fan of both the Philadelphia Eagles and Flyers. When she wasn’t gardening or catching a game, Gaby could be found riding with Joe on the back of his motorcycle. Her sons were very important to her over the years. Gaby took great pride in taking them to their hockey practice and games while they were growing up. She will be missed for her caring spirit and open heart; everyone who knew Gaby will remember her unending generosity.
