On Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016, Geraldine "Gerry" Hall was welcomed into Heaven by her husband of over 60 years, Robert "Bob" Henry Hall. She was born in Okay, OK on August 7, 1929 to Irene Redmon McCollum and Joe McCollum.

She spent her childhood in Oklahoma on her family's farm. Later, she moved to San Antonio, TX where she met and married the love of her life, Robert "Bob" Henry Hall on March 25, 1950. They had their first child in 1951, Ruby Hall, and a few years later moved to Tulsa, OK where their second child, Brenda Hall, was born. They then moved to Checota, OK where they opened their first bakery, Mrs. Hall's Donut Shop. In 1957, they moved to Fort Smith, AR and opened their second Mrs. Hall's Donut Shop. In 1970, Gerry and Bob added a third daughter, Crystal Hall, to their family. In 1972, the Hall's opened the Robert Hall Hearing Aid Center where they worked until they retired in 2000.

Gerry was a warm, caring person that loved her family more than anything. She was a devoted wife, mother, sister, grandmother and great grandmother. One of her greatest joys in life was spending time with her grandchildren. Whether playing kickball, freeze tag or wading up and down the creek beside her house, she was always up for fun and adventure. She always had a good story to tell, and she loved to dance. Gerry was welcomed into Heaven by her husband, Bob; her sisters, Pearl and Willie; her brothers, Floyd, Mike, Eugene and Jerry; and her parents, Irene and Joe. She leaves behind her three daughters, Ruby Poole of Fort Smith, Brenda Hines of Fort Smith, Crystal Jacobs of the state of Washington; seven grandchildren, Tracy Poole of Memphis, TN, Taylor Smith of Fort Smith, Hallee Piechocki of Olathe, KS, Lindsey Jackson of Fort Smith, Christopher Price, Brittney Price-Kuhlman, and Blaze Jacobs of the state of Washington; and nine great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sisters, Beulah, Jackie and Betty; and her brothers, Willis, Cornell, Shelby, Bobby, Guy, Billy and Ray. While Gerry will be greatly missed, we are thankful for the many happy memories that we are blessed to have shared with her.
