Laree Hall, 86, joined her Lord Jesus Christ in heaven June 21, 2019. She succumbed to complications after a 10-year battle with leukemia.
Laree was born May 9, 1933 to Ike and Gladys Hartsell in Paradise, Texas. She graduated from Chico High School in 1951 as valedictorian. Despite being offered a college scholarship, she chose to marry her high school sweetheart, Perry Hall, Aug. 10, 1951, and together with him started a family that led to three children.
She spent her life as a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother always serving them first.
She also served the Lord by supporting Perry in the full-time ministry of the gospel. She was an inspiration and enriched the lives of all who knew her. 2 Timothy 4:7 reads, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved his appearance.”
God has definitely received her into heaven with the words, “well done my good and faithful servant.”
Laree was preceded in death by her parents, Ike and Gladys Hartsell; brother, Tommy Hartsell; and son, David Hall.
Those left to cherish her memory are her husband of 67 years, Perry Neal Hall; daughter, Cathy Allison and husband Dr. Rick Allison of Sulphur Springs; son, Dr. Alan Hall and wife Magali of Hudson Oaks; daughter-in-laws, Kanetha Hicks of Boyd and Karen Hall of Austin; seven grandchildren, Brent Allison, Dr. Ryan Allison, Amber Chauncey, Tiffany Brown, Heather Bell, Alex Hall and Michelle Hall; 13 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Though we will miss her dearly, please come join us for a celebration of her life that will be held 1 p.m. Friday, June 28, 2019 at the South Main Church of Christ in Weatherford, Texas. There will be no formal visitation.
The family would appreciate donations to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society or Sojourners at sojourning.org.
