Mary E. Hall met Jesus face to face on Monday, February 5, 2018. Family and friends will gather to celebrate her life on February 8, 2018, at 11:30 a.m. at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers.
Mary was born on November 26, 1929 to Richard and Mary Maude Stanford in Waco, TX. Mary met the love of her life, James (Jim) E. Hall while they were both attending Texas Tech University. Mary and Jim married in Waco, TX on August 26,1950, and began their life together in Lubbock, TX. Mary received a bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech University. Mary taught school for a short time and then decided God called her to be a mother and homemaker. For many years, Mary loved to volunteer her time, and she was passionate about helping others. She delivered meals on wheels, served in hospital care, and was very passionate about prison ministry. Mary always thought everyone deserved a second chance and everyone needed to hear the gospel (especially those that had made bad choices).
Survivors include her four children, Jay Hall and Hildi of Reno Nevada, Julie McCasland and husband Mike of Lubbock TX ; Maryjane (MJ) Kinard and husband, Rick of Lubbock, TX and Meg Griffin of Lubbock, TX. Mary was also blessed grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
You didn’t have to be around Mary long, to know the love she had for others. Mary had a great desire to be a missionary in South America, but she had her own mission field right here. She had bold faith and tried to never miss an opportunity to share the love of Jesus. We are going to miss her greatly, but we are rejoicing that we will see her again in heaven.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Mary Maude Stanford; husband, Jim Hall; and brother, Richard B. Stanford, Jr.
