Lydia 53, passed away suddenly and unexpected on Thursday, February 14, 2013 in Ahwahnee, California. She was born in Dallas, Texas and came to Cedar Grove in 1968 from the Bay Area. Graduated El Dorado High 1978. She married her high school sweetheart Robert Ball and had two beautiful children. She later married her grade school sweetheart. She was Number 1 of 6 children.

Lydia was kind spirited, very giving, and loved everyone. She always showered everyone with gifts; her way of saying “I love you.” She was like a kid in a candy store. Every holiday, birthday or other celebration, she was way ahead of the event months before it arrived. And after she’d be the first to call to see what you had gotten at Christmas time, and inform you of her bounty of gifts everyone had given her. Lydia would go into detail on each gift and from whom, you could be on the phone for an hour listening intently. Lydia loved music and loved to sing, cook, read, collect fairies, collect real jewels and visit her grandbabies.

Lydia is survived by her loving husband, Mitchell Gladson. Her daughter Kristine & husband, Mike Dittman of Valley Springs, and her son Daniel Ball of North Highlands. Other family includes 6 sisters, 2 brothers. Grandmother Norine Hollis, mother Gerry Sepetaio of Kelsey. Grandchildren Rebecca, Miriam, Jazmine, Jet and Jace. Nieces/nephews and many cousins and loving friends.

Services will be held Friday, March 1, 2013, 11:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Sierra Parish. Flowers may be sent to Sierra Funeral Chapel 49269 Road 426 Oakhurst, California 93644.
