Anita “Billie” Ball of Edgewood passed away on April 4th at her new home in Chapel Hill, NC. She is survived by her husband, Edward E. Ball, her daughters Claudia Sabin, Nancy Ratner (Mark), and Christine Mark (Jonathan), and her six grandchildren.
Billie was a lifelong enthusiast of gardening and antiques and delighted in her involvement with the Edgewood Garden Club, Pottery and Porcelain Society, and many charitable organizations, including Brown University and the R.I. Hospital Guild.
Although Billie’s travels and always adventurous spirit took her around the world, she was happiest at home near her garden, friends, and family.
In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Edgewood Garden Club would be gratefully appreciated.
