Obituary of Theda Maryse Ball

IN LOVING MEMORY OF THEDA M. BALL Theda Maryse Ball, daughter of Ernest Fred and Eva Marie (Campbell) Minor, was born July 2, 1934, in Leoti, Kansas. She passed away peacefully at her home in Norton, Kansas, surrounded by her family, on October 30, 2020, at the age of 86. Theda grew up in the Leoti community and graduated from the Wichita County Community High School where she was very active in band, vocal, cheerleading and basketball. On October 7, 1956, she married Max Colvin Ball at the First Presbyterian Church in Leoti. To this union three children were born. The family moved 16 times around the state of Kansas, due to Max's profession of being a brick mason. In 1960, they made Norton their permanent home. Theda was a member of the Presbyterian Church. Theda was a homemaker and loved raising her family and her garden. She was an avid reader and loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Spending time together, Theda and Max enjoyed fishing, turkey hunting and bird watching. Survivors include: her loving husband, Max Ball, of their home in Norton; three children, Patricia (Dave) Fischer, Randall (Tammy) Ball, and Tammie (Dan) Bainter, all of Norton; five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren; one brother, Gordon Minor, Stilwell, Oklahoma; two sisters, Lois Phillis, Hutchinson, Kansas; Margaret Turner, Scott City, Kansas; other relatives and friends. Theda was preceded in death by her parents, eight brothers, Gerald, Leon, Duane, Vernon, Kay, Harold, Donald and Larry Minor, and two sisters, Joyce Farr and Charlotte Carson. There will be a private family service held at a later date. A memorial has been established to the Theda Ball Memorial Fund.
