October 1, 1930 ~ March 26, 2013
Surrounded by the love of her family and the thoughts of so many who loved her, Jane Hall died on March 26, 2013 from bone cancer. She was 82 years old. Jane was born in 1930 in Toccoa, Georgia. Although born into the midst of the Great Depression, she lived a rich life. She visited all of the continental 48 states and all of eastern Canada. She saw President Roosevelt's train take his body from Warm Springs back to Washington, DC. in 1945. Her greatest richness though came from her many friends. She never met a stranger: she shared her love with everyone. Later in life, she worked as a sample sales person, a job she loved because of all of the new friends she could make. Her life also had many tribulations. Her younger brother died when she was a child and her younger sister died in the prime of her life. She tended her husband's many maladies during their marriage and especially at the end of his life, and was fortunate to have many friends to help her when she was ill. She is survived by her two children, Leigh Boyce and Thad Hall, two grandchildren, Megan Norkunas and Ethan Hall, and three nieces: Kathy Kent, Beth Gaddie, and Debbie Miller. Her family is especially grateful to Bertha Rogers, her great friend who cared for her daily over the last years, and all of her friends who created the rich social network that was our mom's life. Finally, we are thankful to all of the staff at Peachtree Christian Hospice, who every day do the work Jesus asks: to feed and clothe, and to tend the sick. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her name to Peachtree Christian Hospice, www.peachtreechristianhospice.com or The Kidney Foundation, www.kidney.org, a group dedicated to the prevention of kidney diseases and increasing the availability of all organs for transplant. The funeral will be held on Saturday March 30th at 3pm at St. James Lutheran Church Norcross, GA The family will receive friends Friday from 6-8pm at Wages and Sons Funeral Home, 1031 Lawrenceville Highway.
