The life and influence of Mrs. Bale was a blessing to our family. Her artistry, expressed through ceramics continues to reinforce our memories of this witty Christian lady.

I worked at Union National Bank on Geyer Springs in the 70’s and Mrs. Bale was one of my very favorite customers. She was always so kind and so pleasant to visit with. One day she came in with a
“little present” wrapped up for me and it was a precious painting she had done with a field of flowers and a mailbox with my last name on it. I was so touched that she did this for me and I have never forgotten her kindness. I still display that little painting in my home!
