Alice Irene Baer Ballard, born April 11, 1922 in Deerfield, Michigan, to Walter Baer and Alice Fletcher Wyman, passed away September, 9, 2010 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
She met and married Dale H. Ballard during World War II while serving in the Women's Army Corp. After the war ended, she and Dale moved to Draper, Utah, where Dale originated.
Alice was a beautiful woman with many talents. She had a very difficult childhood, being orphaned at the age of ten. At the age of sixteen she attended the Twin City Beauty College.
A locally well-known artist, she loved blending travel and painting, which took her many wonderful places around the world, Bali, Egypt, and rafting the Colorado River being her favorites. She was an excellent seamstress and culinary artist, cooking everything from tofu to enviable chocolates, and delighting her family with memorable birthday cakes.
She served many callings for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and supported her sons on their missions.
Alice enjoyed the beauty of nature and was simple and unpretentious. Her flowers were an inspiration and she and her grandchildren loved picking food in her garden. She loved the many family gatherings and holidays we shared, especially the delightful Easter egg hunts. She loved to learn, devouring hundred of books in many subjects, taking art classes and a variety of seminars throughout her life.
Alice is survived by her children, Dale Ballard Jr., Frank Ballard and Pamela Ballard; 14 grandchildren; and 25 great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Dale H. Ballard.
Graveside services will be held Monday, September 13th at 2:00 p.m. at the Draper Cemetery, 12450 South 950 East. Please, no flowers.
