Obituary for Carol Ann Ballard (Grant)

Carol Ann Ballard - 73, of Manchester, passed away peacefully on January 4, 2019, with her loving husband by her side. She was born on January 17, 1946, in Gardiner, Maine, the daughter of Fred and Dorothy Grant.
Carol lived a rich and active life. She helped run Ballard Meats & Seafood in Manchester with her husband, Ken, for more than 40 years before retiring to Florida in 2014. In addition to her dedication to the family business, Carol enjoyed traveling with her family and spending time at her home on Silver Lake. Carol treasured family traditions, always hosting memorable Christmas Eve and Fourth of July parties that family and friends never wanted to miss. She had a passion for gardening and doing crafts, and a great talent for decorating her home, with always a remodeling project underway.
Carol was devoted to her husband, Ken, of 55 years, proud of her three loving and successful sons, and especially loved her role as Nanny Ballard to six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Carol’s love for life carried over into many great friendships that she treasured.
Carol was predeceased by her parents, Fred and Dorothy Grant; her mother-in-law, Lillian Ballard; her brother and sister-in-law, Fred and Donna Grant; her brother-in-law Thomas Anderson; and her niece Maureen Whitman.
She is survived by her husband, Ken Ballard, Jr.; sons Jeff (Julie) Ballard of Canandaigua, NY, Todd Ballard of Manchester, and Jason (Heidi) Ballard of Readfield; brother Robert Grant (Jenny Meyers) of West Gardiner; sister-in-law Martha Anderson of Smithtown, NY; six grandchildren: Kate (Nate) Murphy of Canandaigua, NY; Kenneth (Melissa) Ballard of North Wales, PA; Keegen (Alisha) Ballard of Augusta; Eben Ballard of Winthrop; Maddie Ballard of Readfield; Reece Daniels of Readfield; five great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
Carol and family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the medical staff, home nursing staff, and many friends who supported Carol during her illness.
