Carrie Sanguinetti Bixel Ball

Age 80
Mother's Maiden Name: Celli

Carrie Lottie Sanguinetti was the daughter of Giacomo (Jacob) Sanguinetti and Catherina Celli, Italian immigrants whose descendants still live in Tuolumne County. Carrie was raised in Columbia and married Albert Leonard Bixel. The couple had seven children, six who were alive in 1900. After Albert passed away, Carrie married Harry O. Ball, a widower with a daughter, Hazel, to raise. He was a jeweler and owned his store.

Carrie suffered from a years-long illness, a battle she lost in the rest home where she was being cared for.

Carrie moved to Columbia with her family when she was a child. She was a student at the red brick schoolhouse next to this cemetery. In more recent years Sonora was where she made her home.

Funeral services were held from the Burden Chapel in Sonora at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday afternoon with Reverand Leonard Nixon of St. James' Episcopal Church of Sonora officiating. Internment was in the family plot in the Columbia cemetery.

Mrs. Ball was survived by three daughters: Mrs. Harry Hoffman and Mrs. Lottie Mundello, of Stockton; Miss Hazel Ball, of San Francisco; Four sons: Roy and Melvin Ball of San Francisco; Joseph Ball, of Santa Maria; and Fred Ball of Sonora; and two sisters: Mrs. John G. Reynolds, of Stockton; Mrs. Lillian Condon, of St. Petersburg, Florida. There were also six grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Ball was a charter member of Smyth-Bolter Unit No. 58, American Legion Auxiliary; and a member of Tuolumne Star Chapter No. 123, Order of the Eastern Star; Golden Era Parlor No. 99, Native Daughters of the Golden West, of Columbia; Sierra Rebekah Lodge No. 245, of Sonora; and a honorary member of the Aronos Research Club, of Sonora.
