The American Bible Society celebrates the life and mourns the death of Alice Ball, who served with ABS from 1955 through 1988. At retirement she was one of the Bible Societies' top three general secretaries, the first woman to serve in that capacity. Her superb leadership, diligence and life marked a monumental time in Bible Society history. She will be missed and prayerfully remembered.
