Obituary for Betty Miller Ball (Miller)

On Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019, Betty Miller Ball, (age 87) died quietly in her Kensington, MD home. Born on September 7th, 1931, to Frank Miller and Beatrice Miller in New London, CT. Beloved mother of Mark (Patience) Ball, of Kensington, MD; grandmother of Tonashe Samuel (Tayo) and Tendai David Ball; sister of Walter H Miller of Groton, CT, and Kenneth G. Miller Sr., of Norwich, CT. She will also be missed by her loving church community of North Bethesda United Methodist Church and members of the OASIS. She was predeceased by her former husband Samuel Diego Ball.

Words are insufficient to describe how special she was, and what she meant to her family and friends. She was an incredible mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, friend and soul-supporter. She was an angel. We are comforted by the fact that she did not suffer, and although she was nearly 88, she lived a full and active life right to the end.

Since we are celebrating her life and Betty loved joyous colors such as light blue, green, yellow, and pink, you are invited to wear any of these colors to her service. Friends will be received at North Bethesda United Methodist Church, 10100 Old Georgetown Rd., Bethesda, MD 20814, at 1:00 pm on Saturday, August 10, 2019, where a Celebration of Life will begin at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to North Bethesda United Methodist Church:
