Shannon Knowles and Vicki Ballinger flew to North Dakota last week for the funeral of their dad’s cousin, Bud Ballinger. He was 90. Bud is survived by Eva, his wife of 69 years, and six children and their families. Bud and Eva made many trips to Endiang to visit Wayne and Lois Ballinger over the years and they got to know many in our community during those visits. Our sympathy goes to the Ballinger family in their loss.
