Althie Ball Sauceman

May 15, 2008


Althie Ball Sauceman departed life on May 15, 2008 at her home in Newport, Tennessee, following an extended illness. At her death, she was attended by her family and a host of dear friends, particularly Carlene Reed and Eva Eschelbacher. Her transition was eased by her dedicated and caring coworkers at Smoky Mountain Health and Hospice.

Althie Sauceman was the daughter of Scott and Ellen Ball of Cosby, Tennessee, each of whom preceded her in death. Her husband, W.C. Sauceman, passed away several years ago. Brothers, Narve Ball of Cosby, Tennessee, Ruble Ball of Calhoun, South Carolina and Carlie Ball of Newport, Tennessee; sisters, Rachel Campbell of Hickory, North Carolina and Rhonda Gildersleeve of Spartanburg, South Carolina and beloved sister-in-law, Edith Carver of Newport also preceded her in death.

She is survived by her children, Althie Mae Testerman, Dorothy "Dottie" Ford, Jesse Sauceman and William "Bill" Sauceman; her brother, Oscar Carver of Newport; grandchildren, Robert Thornton, Jennifer L. Sauceman, Amanda Ford, Richard "Ricky" Testerman, David H. Testerman; and great-grandchild, Ashton Thornton. She is also survived by her "adopted" daughters and special friends, Carlene Reed, Tammy Francis and Melissa Ball, Esq. as well as several beloved nephews and nieces.

At the departed's request, no formal memorial services will be held and her mortal remains are cremated with burial arrangements handled by Brown's Funeral Home. Her family appreciates the expressions of sympathy from friends and neighbors. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Smoky Mountain Hospice Program at 222 Heritage Blvd., Newport, Tennessee so that they may continue their outstanding work.

Brown's Funeral Home in charge.
