Sharon Mitchell Ball (age 83) passed away peacefully on December 10, 2022 in Wanship, Utah. Sharon was born on December 27, 1938 in Salt Lake City, Utah with her twin sister Shirley to Tracey M. Mitchell and Chloe Geneva Meeks. Sharon grew up in Park City, Utah with two sisters, Barbara and Shirley. She met Gerald Dale Ball and quickly fell in love. They married on December 14, 1957 in Coalville, Utah. They chose to settle down in Coalville and later had three children, Clinton, Teresa, and Ron.
Sharon worked many years as a caretaker for the elderly around the community, and looked for every opportunity to babysit children in the neighborhood. If she wasn’t caring for someone you could find her in Wendover or Evanston enjoying the horse races and gambling with Gerald. The two of them also enjoyed gardening together. They had a pristine garden each year, overflowing with food for the community. Sharon filled her community with love and was always ready to serve. Her family believes she kept Avon in business, and loved ordering from anyone willing to sell her some product!
Sharon would open her door to anyone in need and loved having visitors. She would welcome you in with a hug, offer you a cup of tea, and shower you with compliments. Sharon had a heart of pure gold, and she made everyone feel like a million bucks! She loved so many people, but nothing compared to the love she had for her grandkids and of course her cats. Her family was her pride and joy.
Sharon is survived by her daughter Teresa (Mark) Stolt, son Ronald (Jackie) Ball, sister Barbara Gines, daughter-in-law Doris Ball, grandkids Dustin Sutton, Tiffany (Paul) Brown, Glory Ball, Brandon (Meg) Ball.
She is preceded in death by her parents, husband Gerald Ball, sister Shirley Clark, son Clinton (Doris) Ball, and granddaughter Brittany Ann Ball.
Family and friends are invited to a viewing at the Coalville Stake Center on Thursday, December 15, 2022 from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Services will be held at the Stake Center following the viewing.
Special thanks to Ron and Jackie Ball, Melanie Bosworth, Canyons Home Health, and Rory Duncan for their loving care.
Sharon’s unconditional love will be greatly missed among those special enough to know her. While our hearts ache for the loss of such a kind spirit, we revel in the knowledge that Sharon is having a joyous reunion with all those she has so dearly missed.
