My Beginning, Middle and End Is Just A Rough Draft Of The Life And Death Of the Late Beautiful Florence Glenda Ballard-Chapman.  Her Entire Story Can Be Read Via Links At The  End Of  The Page.  

Florence Glenda Ballard  (June 30, 1943 – February 22, 1976)

Florence Ballard was Born Florence Glenda Ballard to Jessie and Lurlee Ballard on June 30, 1943  in Detroit, Michigan.   Years later Ballard’s family moved to the  then-newly developed Brewster-Douglass housing projects by the time Ballard was fifteen.  Florence met Mary Wilson first and later Mary introduced Diana Ross to Florence.

Florence, Mary, Diana and Betty became The Primettes and later and then Betty was no longer with the group and later it was Florence,  Mary and Diana as The Supremes.  Florence Ballard came up with the name “The Supremes” and when things went from bad to worst,  Diana had Florence removed from the group and Florence was not able to use the name “Supremes” because, Berry Gordy somehow became the owner of that name.

Florence Ballard later married Motown’s chauffeur Thomas Chapman,  they had 3 little girls, the marriage was on and off,  Ballard at the end was on welfare and home was foreclosed.
