Berniece Hacking Balle, 84, of East Carbon City, Glenwood, and Charleston, Utah, answered the ultimate mission call when she died August 3, 1998 in Price, Utah, as a result of injuries received in an automobile accident.
She was born November 18, 1913 in Cedar Fort, Utah, to Thomas William and Keren Bingham Hacking, the oldest of six children. She was educated in Cedar Fort, graduated from Lehi High School, and received her BS in Education from BYU. She married Harry Reed Balle, Sr. on May 26, 1937 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. He died May 19, 1989.
Berniece is survived by five children: Karleen (Lester) Liebschutz, Salt Lake City, UT; Harry Reed (Maurine) Balle, Jr., West Valley City, UT; Mayleen (David) Hendricksen, Charleston, UT; James Christian (Karen) Balle, West Valley City, UT; John Thomas (Liz) Balle, Cedar Fort, UT; 32 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren; sisters, Lola (LeGrand) Fowlke, Orem, UT; Elna (Walt) Wilson, Bountiful, UT; Venna (Bill) Elton, Cedar Fort, UT; sister-in-law, Gene (LaVerl) Hacking, Blanding, UT; and many, many friends. Preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her sister, Maurine (Irvin) Jeffrey, Delta, UT; brother, LaVerl (Gene) Hacking, Blanding, UT; three grandchildren, Christian Reed, Nathan James and Shannon Adele Balle.
Berniece Balle was a gentle woman of many talents, the most notable of which was her warm ability to love unconditionally. She was as Nathaniel of Old, without guile. All who knew her were brightened by her quick smile and genuine hug. She will be greatly missed by those she left behind, but we are all certain that she continues in the service of her Savior, whom she greatly loved.
