Memories Timeline


  1. Grandma was such an inspiring woman and wife to me. Her humor, the love with which she did her chores, her fun spirit, the ease with which she played for the Lord set an example for all women. And I learned a lot in the kitchen!

  2. My mother, Trixie Duncan, loved Mildred and Theddis very much. Theddis was her 1st cousin on the Ball side. I remember going to their house as a young boy & having some of the greatest meals and fun! Mildred & Theddis loved the Lord and were good examples of Christianity.My sympathy to all the family.
