Jeffrey Theodore Ballance

ELIZABETH CITY - Jeffrey Theodore Ballance, 50, of Okisko Road, Elizabeth City, NC left a temporary home on Monday, December 10, 2018 to a more permanent location. He was born on September 27, 1968 to loving parents the late Earnest E. and Ann Armstrong Ballance, in Jeffrey's words, "The best Mom and Dad ever." A dedicated and active member of New Life Assembly of God Church, he enjoyed working in all areas of the kid's ministries and assisting as needed where needed. He enjoyed having a long career with the North Carolina Department of Transportation as Assistant Resident Engineer.

In addition to his mother, he leaves behind his wife of thirty-one years, Laurie Etheridge Ballance who with God has been the strength that kept us strong in every way; and two daughters, Crystal Ballance of Wilmington and Kimberly Ballance of Elizabeth City, two of the greatest blessings a man could ever have. "God put together these three people in my life. Just for me...only the best."

Other family members he leaves are brothers, Cliff Ballance (Cricket), Henry Ballance (Belinda) all of Elizabeth City and Mike Ballance (April) of Florida; mother in law, Laura Etheridge of Powell's Point; sister in law, Tammy Mikell (James) of Norfolk, VA; also, many nieces, nephews, cousins, uncles, aunts.

Jeffrey saw each and every family member as a gift from God to help him along his way. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his grandparents; father in law, Ervin Etheridge; brothers in law, Ronnie Etheridge and Myles Etheridge; and uncles and aunts.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, December 14, 2018 at New Life Assembly of God with Pastor Clay Manos officiating. Burial will be in New Hollywood Cemetery. The family will receive friends on Thursday evening from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the funeral home.
