Monroe County Appeal, March 4, 1965:
Mrs Marvin Ball, 47, accidentally drowned in the bathtub in her home near Centralia, Mo. between 8:00 and 9:00 am Sunday.
In ill health for some time, she had recently undergone brain surgery and since then had been unable to keep her balance. It is thought she fell into the tub and could not get out of it before she drowned.
Mr Ball, who is employed as an assistant to Buford Wilson, extensive sheep rancher and farm operator, had left the house to do his farm chores and when he returned to the home about an hour later, found his wife's lifeless body in the partly filled tub of water.
The former Miss Kathleen Bryson, she was the daughter of the late Roy Bryson and Mrs FVilla Bute Bryson.
She is survived by her husband, her mother; two sons, Ronald of Promise City, IA and Daryl, stationed at New Richmond, WI with the Army; one daughter Mrs Wyvetta Admire of Mexico; a sister, Mrs Vernon Brooks of Centralia; a brother, Walter Bryson, West Pakistan, Asia, and four grandchildren.
Funeral services were held at 2:00 pm Tuesday at the Allen Street Methodist Church at Centralia and burial was in Glendale Memorial Gardens. She was a member of the Friendship Christian Church, and had been active in 4-H Club, civic and church circles.
