Cleora N Hopkins Hall
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1844
Death: 1920

Mr. Hall was united in marriage with Cleora Nazette Hopkins, daughter of the late William Lanksford and Elizabeth (Smith) Hopkins, of North Kingston [sic], R. I. Mrs. Hall, who survived her husband, traces her descent from several promient old founder families of Rhode Island. (Hopkins and Smith). She has long been an active and indefatigable worker in behalf of charitable and religious efforts in Edgewood. Edgewood Church The church of the Transfiguration (Protestant Episcopal) at Edgewood, was founded by Mrs. Hall and a few others, the first service having been held in the Norwood avenue school house, January 31, 1892, in which year Mrs. Hall was baptized and confirmed. It was largely through her untiring efforts that this church was made possible in this section, and her devotion to its interests since the time of its founding has never diminished. She has also been an ardent worker in the church societies, and is an active member of the Parish Aid and Missionary Society, and the Church Guild. For a number of years she was a teacher in the Sunday school and president of the Hospitality and Works of Mercy Society. The present beautiful church edifice on Broad street, completed in 1910, stands as a monument to the zeal and energetic work of Mrs. Hall and her co-workers in the church, and at the impressive service of the dedication, the Bishop, with Mrs. Hall standing beside him, turned to the congregation and said: 'To the greatness of this woman's heart we owe our beautiful church.' Mrs. Hall is also a valued member of the Edgewood Woman's Club. When the naming of the beautiful residential suburb of Providence, called Edgewood, in the town of Cranston, where the Hall residence is situated, was under consideration, many names were suggested, but the name of Edgewood, as suggested by Mrs. Hall on account of its bordering on the wooded section of Roger Williams Park, found most favor. Mrs. Hall has continued to the present day her deep interest in every department of the life of Edgewood, and has always been one of its best known and best beloved residents.
