Annie Lettice McKoy Ball
Birth: Sep., 1855
El Dorado County
California, USA
Death: Mar. 2, 1901
Ben Lomond
Santa Cruz County
California, USA

Annie Lettice married Joseph Ball on April 20, 1875 in Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz Co., Calif. and had Lucie Cecilia Ball, Emily Ball, and Bessie Margaret Ball.

Obit. March 16, 1901
Mrs. Annie Letitia Ball, wife of Supervisor Joseph Ball, died suddenly and unexpectedly at the family apartments in the Hotel Ben Lomond last Sunday night at 10:30 o'clock. Mrs. Ball had been subject to attacks of heart trouble during the past year and it was one of these that caused her sudden taking off as stated above, the immediate cause of death being diagnosed as paralysis of the heart.
Mrs. Ball had been about her duties as usual the day before her death and seemed to be as well as usual and in good spirits. There was nothing to indicate her being called so suddenly. Like a thunderbolt from a clear sky the shaft of the destroyer came and in a few minutes after it struck the wife and mother had passed from the earth.
The funeral took place Tuesday afternoon and was largely attended. The home services were held at the Hotel Ben Lomond at one o'clock. Rev Wm Hicks, of the Presbyterian church of this place, officiating. The remains were then taken by the afternoon train to Santa Cruz, accompanied by many other friends and a long procession of carriages wended its way to the Odd Fellow's cemetery, where the impressive burial services were conducted by Isabella Rebekah Lodge, I. O. O. F., of Santa Cruz, of which Mrs. Ball was a member in good standing. Court adjourned and all of the county officials attended. Many beautiful floral pieces testified to the sympathy and good will of friends and the esteem in which deceased (sic) was held. Interment was in the family plot in the Odd Fellow's cemetery.
Mrs. Annie L. Ball was a sister of Mrs. L N Hayes, Mrs. T B Hubbard and Mrs. G C West, all of San Jose, and was the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. W. McKoy, old residents of Felton, where her life from girlhood, until recently, has been passed. She was united in marriage to Mr. Jos. Ball in the early seventies. Three children blessed the union, one deceased, and the two daughters, Lucy and Bessie, now grown to womanhood, and left to mourn the loss of a faithful, devoted mother. Mrs. Ball was a native of El Dorado County, this state, and was aged 45 years at the time of her death. Her bereaved family has the sincere sympathy of a wide circle of friends in their great and unexpected affliction.
