Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Rosetta (Zetta) Ballew, age 39

Rosetta (Zetta) Ballew, 39, of Arkadelphia, AR died on January 9, 2024 in Little Rock, AR. She was born on February 20, 1984 to the late Ralph and Nina Ballew.

She was a proud alumnus of Henderson University, where she studied English and business. Learning was one of their many passions. She was a beloved member of the Clan of Laughing Dragons. And, a precious member of the RiAll family.

She is preceded in death by parents, Ralph and Nina Ballew, and brother, Clayton. Zetta is survived by brother, Jasper Ballew of Arkadelphia, sister, Shannon Ford of Russellville, Uncle and Aunt Eugene and Patsy Ballew, nieces, nephews, cousins, and many members of her beloved chosen family.

Zetta was a treasured member of the community, leaving smiles and love wherever she set foot. The world may be grieving the loss of a loved one, but we are all so much better for having a seed of her love planted in our hearts forever. As Zetta said, “greatness can be defined in many ways” and she would want us all to know just how great we are and how great her love was for each of you!

    You touched so many hearts while you were here, always had a hug or just the words to lift someone up. Leaving us is painful, but in our hearts you’ll always be. Much love is being sent up above. Keep a eye on us okay.

    The love and light you brought to the world as you walked with us is matched only by the warmth of the love and light your memory brings as we now carry you with us in our hearts. Rest in love, Z.
