George A. Ball, the last of five brothers who established Ball Brothers Company and made the Mason jar a standard for home canning, died suddenly in his home on Minnetrista Boulevard, at 6:45 a.m. Saturday. He had been bedfast for four weeks, since recurrence of a stomach disorder that he suffered last year and for which he was then hospitalized for a short while.

Cerebral thrombosis, or a blood clot on the brain, was given as cause of death, which came at a time when attendants marveled at his remarkable recovery from two minor strokes that they thought he suffered last week.

Private funeral services will be conducted in the home at 3:30 p.m. Monday by Dr. Lewis Weber Gishler, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church. Entombment will be made in the family mausoleum at Beech Grove Cemetery. The family will receive callers at the Meeks Mortuary Sunday from 2-5 and 7-9 p.m. and Monday from 9-11 a.m. The casket will not be open.

Mr. Ball is survived by his wife, Frances Woodworth Ball, and a daughter, Elisabeth, at home.
