Marjorie (Margie) Lee Hall passed away on Saturday, June 28, 2014 at 5:15am at her home in Princeton, Texas. She was 71 years old.
Margie is survived by her sister Catherine LaField Davis, former spouse Jimmy Hall, daughter Tana Hall of San Francisco, sons Lee Hall of Princeton, TX, Brian Hall of Andover, MN, and her beloved dog, Tessie.
Margie was born on October 14, 1942 and raised in San Antonio by her parents, prominent couple Reggie and Cassie Virginia LaField. She grew up with three younger siblings, brothers Charles and Mark who predeceased her, and sister Catherine. Margie attended high school at Alamo Heights High School, where she served as President of the Junior Drama Club, Treasurer of the Art Appreciation Club, and was a member of numerous performing arts clubs. Upon graduation in 1960, Margie moved to Dallas to attend Baylor University. While at Baylor as a dental student, she met and fell in love with Jimmy Hall of Dallas, married in 1962, and began her first career as a housewife and Mom to three.
In 1975, Margie embarked upon a new career as Accounts Payable specialist, which led to positions over the years at RC Cola, Country Dinner Playhouse, and auto dealerships, such as Chevrolet, Pontiac/Cadillac/GMC, and Kia.
She had a heart as big as Texas, with a kind word or deed for anyone or anything in need. She adored all animals, and gave loving homes to many, including Little Kid, Brez, Cookie, Freckie, Fifty, and Tessie.
Margie had an extraordinary talent for appreciating the simple things in life- a hot dog and limeade from the local Sonic or good news in the mail - she carried with her a na´ve wonder that made every day full of possibility.
In her last months, as she battled colon cancer with a quiet optimism, her thoughts were of her children, hoping that their lives would be free from worry and stress. She prized her family and the peace of home above all else.
Margie's children are devastated by the loss of this beautiful woman who was the embodiment of the unconditional love of motherhood. We will miss the way she would light up every time we talked to her or called her, as if we had made her day just by being ourselves. We love you, Mom. Your time here was far too short, but you have made the world a better place for being in it.
For those wishing to honor Margie's life, the family requests that donations be made to the Doris Day Animal Foundation in her name.
