Jacqueline "Jackie" Ball

Mrs. Jacqueline Ball, age 78 of LaFollette passed away on Tuesday, May 28, 2024.  Affectionally known as “Jackie”, she was originally from Matewan, WV, where her and her husband, Bill began their mining supply business, BWB of West Virginia.  In 1977, they moved to LaFollette to begin BWB of Tennessee, also known as LaFollette Mine Supply, where she worked alongside her family daily until her passing.  She was also the owner and operator of Discount Carpet Store for many years.   

Jackie was a faithful member of Lake City Church of Christ, where she was a devout Christian and a true servant of the Lord. She served her church in many ways, including publishing the church bulletin.  She enjoyed gardening, canning, and crocheting, and was known for her famous meatloaf and fried apple pies.  Jackie loved her family dearly, and always supported her son, Billy while attending Tennessee Walking Horse Shows, and a new adventure, showing pigs with her Granddaughter, Bailey.  Jackie’s contributions to the community are immeasurable, and her support for so many great local causes and charities.  

She is preceded in death by parents, Hursell and Bertha Christian, and sister, Brenda Christian Eberharter.

She is survived by her husband, Bill Ball; son, Billy Ball and wife, Jamie; a beloved “Mamaw” to her Grandchildren, Bailey and Brody Ball; step-son, Darell Catron and wife, Linda; niece whom she raised, Karina Huff and husband, Lehman; brothers, Rob Christian, and Rick Murphy and wife, Joyce; Nephews, Jimmy Eberharter and wife, Patty, Dalton Miller and wife, Destiny, and Ethan Miller; niece, Robin Robbins and husband, Eric; and a host of other family members and friends.
