Mary E Ball

November 24, 1934 — February 16, 2022

BALL, MARY, age 87, passed away peacefully on February 16 at Mercy Health-West Park, Cincinnati.
Mary touched so many lives! She will be missed and remembered…for her countless creative gifts, her deep love of nature, music and books, her irrepressible Irish wit, her warm heart and her magical smile.
Mary was born in Cincinnati November 24, 1934, to the late Thomas J. Ball, Sr., M.D., and Elizabeth (Corbett) Ball. She was predeceased by her brother, Thomas J. Ball, Jr. M.D., and her sister, Patricia Ball Powers and her brother-in-law, Thomas H. Powers, M.D. Surviving are her brother Jim (Achana Ball, M.D.), and her sister, Judy. In addition, Mary leaves her sister-in-law Gretchen Ball; nephew Tim (Karen) Ball; nieces Therese Ball, Kate (Fernando) Marcilla, Margaret (Steve) Henkel, Julie (Dondee) Canos, Molly (Nevin) Ward, Sarah (Rob) Slater; as well as many great-nieces and -nephews.
After graduating from the College of Mt. St. Joseph, majoring in nutrition, Mary served the community as a dietitian and worked at Cincinnati Area Senior Services in the Passport Home Care Program and Meals on Wheels. She spent six years in religious life as a Sister of Mary Reparatrix. In her 40s she entered a new field, earning an MSW degree from the University of Kentucky. She was instrumental in creating the first hospital outpatient chemical dependency program at Bethesda Hospital.
