Our kind and loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, Betty Lou Glover Ball, 76, of Rexburg, was called home Monday, Dec. 24, 2012.
Betty was born Jan. 4, 1936, in Marysville, Idaho. She was the third child of Rita Edington and Raymond Glover. She spent her early childhood in Marysville and had many happy memories. The family later moved to Pocatello, and later to Idaho Falls, where she spent her teenage years. She graduated from Idaho Falls High School and attended Ricks College, where she met and married Keith Leonard Ball. Together they worked on the family farm in Salem, Idaho.
She loved to sew and created many beautiful garments and quilts for her family and herself. She enjoyed traveling, especially to church history sites, and she visited these sites often with her family. She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held many different positions, including positions in the Primary and Relief Society and as librarian. She retired from Electrical Wholesale after working there for over 20 years. She spent the last few years volunteering for the Sugar-Salem School District, Teton Dam Flood Museum, Madison Memorial Hospital, Rexburg LDS Temple and the Madison County Fair Board.
She is survived by her children, Debra Lynn (Bret) Thurman of Clinton, Utah; Barbara Ann (Steve) Atencio of Roy, Utah; Kyle Leonard (Jackie) Ball of Harker Heights, Texas; and Layne J. (Tamie) Ball of Salem, Idaho. She is also survived by her sister, Leah Rae Bybee of Pocatello; and brothers, Perry Dean Glover of Mesa, Ariz., and Raymond Glover of Bath, N.H. She had five grandchildren, Justin Thurman, Christopher (Lillyan) Ball, and John, Kelli and Luke Ball; and two step-grandchildren, Kim Burns and Revendy Rhodes. She had one great-granddaughter, Zoe Ball; and six step-great-grandchildren, Kayleigh, Andrew and Raeleigh Rhodes, and Kye, Troy and Brooke Ball.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, brother and granddaughter.
Funeral services will be at noon Saturday, Dec. 29, at the Salem 1st Ward. The family will receive visitors from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 28, at Flamm Funeral Home and from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. before services at the church. Interment will be in Rexburg Cemetery.
