Marjorie Maxine Brooks Ball
Jan. 27, 1921 - Nov. 23, 2008

Marjorie Maxine Brooks Ball was born January 27, 1921 in Yardley, Washington and passed on November 23, 2008. Beloved wife of Clyde S. Ball, mother to Linda Gordon Batway, grandmother to Nathan and Josh Batway, great-grandmother to Arzella and Maisey Batway. Marge loved to create with fabric and her sewing machine. Always one to learn new techniques and, where she could, to share them with others, Marge favored machine applique and Seminole patchwork techniques. She and her husband Ball enjoyed their RV for many years and were active in the ex-POW group. She always had a joke to share with anyone who would listen. She believed that she brought well-being to the lives of others by bringing laughter. In her last days, she delighted in watching her great-granddaughters play on visits. Could she make a final statement, she would remind us that "I taught you all I know, and still you know nothing." We love you and miss you, knowing that you are currently telling the one where the punchline begins "I've got good news and bad news..." In lieu of flowers or gifts to the family, we ask that Marge's friends make a contribution to help a foster child. Her remains will join Ball's at Tahoma National Cemetery.
