Her heart and home was always in Meridian, where she met and married her only love, J.W. Hall in 1962. The birth of their first child, Debbie, followed soon after. Later came three sons, Jay, Richie, and Floyde. She was a loving, supportive, and active mother, participating in her children’s many activities, including room mother for their elementary years, leading brownie troops, GA’s and Acteens at Midway Baptist Church and attending countless sporting events.

And last, but not least, her favorite four footed child, Foots.
