Peggy Jo Gallion Ballew (Joe), Born Sept. 23, 1933 was called home to Our Heavenly Father on May 19, 2022. She was proceeded in death by her parents, Clyde Ellsworth Gallion and Matilda Blankenship Gallion Powers of Black Mtn. and Enka. Husbands Earl T. Brock and Joseph T. Ballew. Daughters Theresa Y.

Her sisters Lorraine Haney( Glenn), Carolyn Parks(Butch), Joan Hunter( Bobby) and Mary Taylor( Troy). She went to Sandhill school and grew up in the Enka Village; she always told the story proudly of being a depression baby. She was an avid collector and fan of Betty Boop. She was employed by Mills Manufacturing Plant for many years. She loved being outdoors and enjoyed planting her trees and flowers and working in the yard. She loved all animals but her cats were her enjoyment and comfort. Her heart was so big, she had so much compassion for others. She was a bright star in all of our lives, her smile would light up a room and her laughter was contagious. Her life was devoted to her children and grand children always, she leaves behind a legacy of herself through them and her friends. She will be so greatly missed. Services will be held June 13th(3pm) at Georgetown Baptist Church in Leicester. Pastor Jacob Ellege will be officiating, with a reception after; and both will be open to family and friends. We are so thankful to the Elizabeth House and to Pardee Home Health for taking such great care of mom.
