MERIDIAN — Katheryn Dianne Lee Hall, 68, of Russell, died Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013 at Jeff Anderson Regional Medical Center.

    Our dear wife, mother, Nana, and sister was born on March 23, 1945 in Meridian, Miss. to Elbey Carlton Lee and Mary Frances Hand Lee Hutchings. Nana grew up in Meridian and attended Meridian Public Schools along with her siblings, Wayne Carlton Lee, Randy Blake Lee, and Marilyn Virginia Lee Jones. 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.

    Nana is survived by her sweetheart and husband, J.W. Hall, her daughter, Debbie Ward (Tracy) of Aberdeen, MS; her sons, Jay Hall (Kelly) of Loxley, AL; Richie Hall (Kelly) of Cartersville, GA and Floyde Hall of Meridian.

Her brothers Wayne Lee of Pearl, MS, Blake Lee and Clyde Eldridge of Airville, PA and two very special sisters-in-law, Sue Kieffer of Gower, MO and Zelma Trammel of Dalewood, also survive her. And last, but not least, her favorite four footed child, Foots.

    Nana was preceded in death by her parents Bo Lee and Frances Hutchings, stepfather, Robert Hutchings, sister, Marilyn Jones, and very special sister-in-law Helen Bolling.
