She modernized the store and added a cafeteria in the basement. In 1957 she opened a branch of the store in downtown Marion, Indiana. In the early 1960s Ball Stores expanded its Muncie store, adding a home furnishings line and parking space.Use of this image is restricted to projects related to Destination Indiana.
