Obituary for Margaret Ball (Cummings)

Margaret Cummings Ball, 81, was born August 26, 1941 in Salt Lake City, Utah to William Chester and Aileen Beatrice Linton Cummings. Marge attended West High School graduating in 1959. During her teenage years Marge played on a professional women's softball team for 2 years. After her graduation she served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Hamburg Germany Mission.

Marge met the love of her life and eternal companion Larry Ball. They were sealed for time and all eternity in the Mesa Arizona Temple on July 3, 1969. Marge had been told she couldn't have children so when she was blessed with Mike and Matt, her life was complete. Matthew blessed her with three grandchildren; Bradin Ball of Denver, Colorado; Payton Ball of Denver, Colorado and Daxton Ball of St. George, Utah. Marge loved all animals, especially her dogs Kayla and Chewy.

Marge has a strong faith and served in many positions in the church. Her favorite calling was Gospel Doctrine Teacher for many years. She ended her service to her faith working in the church library with her dear friend Gay Ann.

Marge was an avid crotchetier. Many friends and family have enjoyed the beautiful afghans created by Marge. She is well known amongst her many nieces and nephews as "The Favorite Aunt".

Marge is preceded in death by her parents, husband, son Michael, sister Edith. She leaves behind her son Matthew (Erika-she always called her an angel), of Pecos, Texas; three grandchildren, sisters Doris Larson of Salt Lake City, Bonnie Thomas of Salt Lake City, many nieces and nephews.
