What a wonderful lady! I use to work at the Algansee Library and for one of our fund raisers we would go to Mrs. Ball's to pick up black walnuts from that humongous tree in her yard. Always enjoyed the times she would come out and visit and help. Condolences to the family. Enjoy all your memories of her.
