MaryAnna Hall, age 90, died as she lived, with grace, good humor, and a love of the Lord on Tuesday, July 5, 2011, at her home in Madison.
MaryAnna was born 06/24/21 in Sheboygan, the daughter of Alma Agenten and Edmund Liebl. It was in Sheboygan that she met her childhood sweetheart, Harold. She moved to Madison and graduated from the UW in Home Economics in 1943, working at Forest Products Lab as a Timber Mechanic to put herself through school. She moved to Milwaukee and became a fashion Designer for Rhea Manufacturing and the Boston Store during the war. On 8/7/44 she married Harold Hall who died on 07/16/89.
Harold and MaryAnna raised their family in Eau Claire until they returned to Madison in 1962, and became members of St. Maria Goretti Church. MaryAnna was a devout Catholic and she arranged flowers for Sunday Mass for many years. She volunteered at Memorial High School Library and later became a volunteer for the Cancer Society arranging rides to treatment for cancer patients for 25 yrs.
She was an avid reader, a passionate informed voter, and loved to play Scrabble. She was a good loser and a gleeful winner. She expressed unconditional love to whomever she was with in the moment.
She is survived by her children: Pat Hall (Cindy), Lynn St. Cloud (partner Ruth Peach), Tim Hall (Annette Starrantino), Peggy Berkvam (Jim), Steve Hall (partner Scott Lindstrom), Kathryn Hall and son Hal, Dan Hall (Kate Watters) and all the other people who adopted mother along way.

In addition to her parents and husband she was predeceased by her sister Charlotte Howland, daughter, Helen Hall Turner, and grandsons, Adam Turner and Jeff Hall. A memorial service will be held at 10:00 am on Saturday, July 16, 2011 at ST. MARIA GORETTI CATHOLIC CHURCH, 5313 Flad Ave., Madison WI, with visitation from 9am until the time of service at the church. Inurnment will be held at a later date at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery.

Maryann Hall, your son Harold E Hall is a laughingstock.

I am sorry I couldn't be with you at the funeral, but I wanted you to know I send my sympathy and have been thinking about you. MaryAnna was a wonderful neighbor, and a very lovely woman. My very best to you all.

Jim Pappas on Jul 14, 2011

Dear Tim and family--I am deeply saddened by the passing of your Mom and Grandma. I want you to know that I have only the fondest memories of MaryAnna. Every time I visited the home she was so gracious to me and I felt like I was "at home" in the company of this gentle and kind and loving woman. I will always remember that I never "needed" anything--whether food or drink or good conversation whenever the vibrant MaryAnna was about. I hope you will all have deeply meaningful memories of your Mom and Grandma who lived a life of service and humor.
I pray for MaryAnna and your whole family and I pray that MaryAnna is even now resting "in the warm hands of God." God bless all of your family.
Please know that I have a family funeral in Iowa on account of which I will not be able to attend MaryAnna's service. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. With love, Jim Pappas

Mrs Hall was really a second mom to me and many others on Barton Rd. It was always a special pleasure to play scrabble with her, and learn new words. As teenagers I still remember her buying us red white and blue beer (drinking age was 18 so it was legal then) that we could drink during scrabble. Maybe that is how she beat us. She beat me in our last scrabble game in March. I will always cherish the wisdom and wit she had, along with her zuchinni bread recipe which I still use.
I got to see her a number of times in the past year while my mom was ill and she was always such a comfort. I even used her words at my mom's funeral in March which were, "that obituary was so long I didn't think I would live long enough to finish it."

I am glad so many of her family were around her
here last month, and I cherish my "minute" with here two weeks ago.

My love to all of the Hall family.
Jim Brader
