Sounds like the ignition switch, although you didnt give much information. They wear out over time, also when you have a lot of weight on the key its hurts it over time.

Ignition wont turn car off

Kinda depends on the other variables. Your car falls into the ford IGNITION SWITCH LAWSUIT era. Basically older fords from 1980 to 98ish or so didnt have consistent pinchy welds on their ignition switches. Some models caught fire when theyd short out. Others would fail to crank, or fail to shut off or have accessory, there were various ways it failed. If this is your problem, USUALLY you will feel a difference in the rotation of the will feel harder or softer than it used to or may not turn full distance like it used to. If this is the case a new switch and/or lock cylinder may be the required repair.
If the key turns fully to all positions and the dashlights turn on and off in the appropriate positions, its a good sign and you may have a different problem.
Another common problem would be a stuck ECM relay. there is a main relay that turns the computer on, and it is activated by the ignition switch. If the switch is working but the relay isnt, then the car cant shut down because the comuter sees relay power on, it assumes the key to be on and you wanting the car to drive. Removal of the relay should instantly stall the car. Location may be found in the owners manual or the service manual for the vehicle. Those would be my 2 easiest suggestions for not shutting off when removing the key.

Sometimes car shuts off while driving and then comes back on the next day

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.
