Cache Madeira Bionca Ballard was born at Chestnut Hill Hospital in Philadelphia, PA on August 16, 1997, to Agnes (Aggie) Smith-Johnson and David Ballard. She was born the second of six children. Cache passed away peacefully on July 7, 2021, to be with her brother Warren and grandparents.

Cache grew up in Berwyn, Pa, and attended school in the Tredyffrin-Easttown School District until furthering her education at Overbrook School for the Blind and Pottstown High School. During her time in Main Line Schools, Cache took part in Girl Scouts and field hockey and when she attended Overbrook School for the Blind she ran track.

Growing up, Cache enjoyed being around family and friends. She participated in praise dancing in several churches she and her family went to. She made sure she always had her smell goods in hand and her nails and hair done. She loved playing manhunt/tag with cousins and just being around everyone who kept her happy, especially her best friends, Brittany Lambert, Ciara Williams, and Markeya Byrd. Cache always made sure everyone in her life was in good spirits and felt loved.

Cache was preceded in death by her brother Warren Anthony Zecheria Ballard, her grandparents and great grands; Warren Smith Sr., Paul Eaton, Juanita R. Smith, Willard Dennis, and Irma Dennis. She leaves to cherish her memory, her mother and father; Agnes (Aggie) Smith-Johnson and David Ballard, her grandmothers: LaVerne Eaton, and Sylvia Matthews, her siblings; David (Deejay) Ballard II, Jada Ballard, Symire Ballard, and Josiah Ballard, nieces and nephews; Davianna Ballard, David Ballard III, and Jayden Johnson-Ballard, as well as a host of aunts and uncles, cousins, and friends.


We think about you always,

We talk about you still.

You have never been forgotten,

And you never will.

We hold you close within our hearts,

And there you will remain.

To walk and guide us through our lives,

Until we meet again.
