Ted Lord


(June 3, 2007)

A memorial service is scheduled Monday, June 11 at 11 a.m. at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Powell for lifelong Garland area resident, Theodore B. (Ted) Lord, 92, who died at Garland Sunday, June 3.

Ted was born Jan. 14, 1915, in Garland, son of Joseph and Christine Bremer Lord. His mother was a school teacher in Garland, and Ted later was one of her students.

He married Jean Bausawein of Chicago. She preceded him in death.

On July 15, 1990, he was baptized and confirmed into the Christian faith at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Powell. He remained a member of Immanuel Lutheran until his death.

Ted married Leona Battaglia Wochl Kirkman on July 18, 1997.

Ted farmed and lived on the family homestead his entire life. One of his favorite pastimes was playing the piano and entertaining. His father had been a piano salesman, and Ted learned to play by ear.

The Garland school house, now a church, had a special place in Ted’s life. Some years back, he paid to have the building newly sided.

Survivors include his wife, Leona; and two foster children, John Wojsznarowicz of Boulder City, Nev., and Nelda Wojsznarowicz of Denver.

Thompson Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
