Obituary

Nancy Anita (Church) Balla, age 77 of Lakeport, Michigan passed away on Saturday, February 15, 2020, in Marysville, Michigan of ovarian cancer.

She was born January 17th, 1943, in Midland, Michigan to W. Roland and Ardath A.Church. She was the eldest of six children and grew up in Rose City, Michigan.

She was the loving wife to Carl Joseph Balla married on January 30th, 1965 in Rose City. They recently celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary.

She is survived by her husband, Carl J. Balla of Lakeport, MI; children, Mark J. Balla (Tonya) of Mundelein, IL, Steven C. Balla (Sherry) of Houghton, MI and Jill R. Balla Shaw (Stephen) of Lake Leelanau, MI; granddaughters, Anna C. Balla and Kadra R. Balla of Mundelein; sisters, Peggy L. Johnson (William) of Connecticut and Josette L. Oleksik of Florida; as well as several nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents, W. Roland Church II and Ardath A. (Sheldon) Church; sister, Renee S. Church; brother, William R. Church III; and sister, Julianne K. Green.

Nancy attended Michigan State University and Milwaukee Career College and worked as a medical assistant until the birth of her eldest child. Later she served as the Assistant Treasurer of Burtchville Township. She was very active in North Lakeport Wesleyan Church, women’s groups and her community.

Nancy was a beautiful, caring woman who had many names - wife, mother, grammy, sister, aunt, mother-n-law, sister-n-law, Christian, and friend. Memories of her kind heart, her smile, her food, her generosity, and her hugs will be forever cherished.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Nancy’s honor to North Lakeport Wesleyan Church or The American Cancer Society.
