I had the great pleasure of working for Edith, at John and Edith’s printing company. Though I was an employee she always extended her interest and caring to understand and talk with me on a personal level about my life and family. It was so very clear to see her love and adoration for John and her
She was truly a compassionate woman, full of kindness, sincerity, and joy. May
she rest peacefully with our Lord in the kingdom of Heaven.

Edith was a beautiful woman inside and out. As a small child our family lived next door and Edith was there for my mom as her best friend. I remember them watching As The World Turns everyday and enjoying a Pepsi together. We would go over and help Edith stuff envelope hundreds of them it was fun! Our families did many activities together boating, Christmas parties, and trick or treating. Edith helped my mom when she came home from the hospital with my younger siblings. My mom didn’t drive till she was older so Edith would help with errands. Edith was always serving others and lead by example. We knew she loved the Lord. We had so many good times on Marlette street. Precious memories! All my love to John and the family. I know she is rejoicing in Heaven! (Middle sister)

I have so many fond memories of beautiful Edith Ball, she was my Moms best friend and confident while living on Marlette Street. They shared personal experiences together about their children. We went out for the first time on Lake and learned to water ski with the Balls. We had many memories of Christmas together, the parents getting together on Christmas Eve. She was a woman of faith and love for John and devotion to her family. She will be missed. Jesus welcomed another angel home. The Romney family remembers beautiful Edith Ball. RIP Hugs and Love to the family💕❤️💕
