Flora Ball

WAYNESVILLE — Flora Mae McElroy Ball, 86, passed away on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at her residence.

A native of Haywood County, she was a daughter of the late Robert Wayne and Lona Elizabeth Messer McElroy. Flora was a lifelong member of Liberty Baptist Church and a beloved Sunday School teacher for 55 years. The name Flora means flower, and anyone that knew Flora, remembers her beautiful garden in the springtime. She and JT worked side by side raising a family, growing tobacco and tending their farm. Flora loved her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who affectionately referred to her as Granny.

Flora is survived by her husband and best friend of 70 years, JT Ball, of Waynesville; daughter, Elizabeth Yvonne Brown (Robert), of Hemphill; son, Ricky Dale Ball, of Waynesville; three sisters, Lois Ledford, of Waynesville, Linda Ayers, of Candler, and Geraldine Parkins, of Panther Creek; five grandchildren, Heather Terwillegar, Ryan Brown, Jason Ball, Shanna Ball, and Angie Ball; and four great-grandchildren, Madelyn, Ian, Cason and Emma.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 22, 2020 at Liberty Baptist Church with the Rev. Stacy Hightower and Reverend Jerry Nelson officiating. Burial will follow in the Liberty Baptist Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. prior to the service.

The care of Mrs. Ball has been entrusted to Wells Funeral Homes and an online memorial register is available at “Obituaries” at www.wellsfuneralhome.com.
