Gloria C Hall
March 31, 1934 – November 14, 2021
Gloria Camarillo Hall, 87, of Houston, Texas, was called to heaven on Sunday, November 14, 2021, in her home among family. She left a legacy of God’s word imprinted on all of our hearts, unconditional love and kindness.
Gloria was born on March 31, 1934 to Emma H. and Rosalio Jr. Camarillo in San Diego, Texas. She was a proud member of her high school marching band, helped her family harvest cotton, and worked at a tortilla factory as a young woman. Shortly after graduation, she married her sweetheart, James E. Hall, in 1952 after meeting at a local dance and a courtship by mail correspondents during his service in the United States Airforce.
Gloria helped raise and care for many children throughout her life. Most importantly, she was a born-again Christian with a natural ability to lead people to salvation. Gloria was a warrior of intercession prayer, enjoyed reading the bible, listening to Christian music and hymns, as well as ministering the word of God. When she helped a person get saved, she often said, “It was God’s plan all along.”
With a passion for gardening and caring for fruit trees, she shared the experience and its produce with family and friends. Gloria enjoyed playing piano by ear, crossword puzzles, word searches, and watching classic movies. She was also a long-time member of the Vineyard Church Houston in the Heights.
Gloria was preceded in death by two unborn children; husband and father of her children, James E. Hall; parents, Rosalio and Emma H. Camarillo; sisters, Margarita, Emma Garza, and Maria Oralia Salinas; brothers-in-law, Joe Guerrero and Ubence Salinas Jr.; granddaughter, Nicole Esmeralda Gonzalez; and nieces and nephews.
She is survived by her children and their partners, David and Nancy, Lavina and Bruce, Elizabeth and Jorge, Michelle and Henry; grandchildren and their partners, Kirk, Raymond Edward, Aaron, Natalie, Dorothy Jeannette and Cesar, Rex Jr. and Wendy, Zoie, Christopher, Kristina and Angel, Halleli, Raquel and Kevin, Jonathan, Olivia and Mark, Janine, Justin, Georgia, Jacob; great-grandchildren, William, Cesar Jr., Crespin, Constantine, Caydence, Cash, Brandon, Haze; siblings and their partners, Margarita and Eulogio, Rosalinda, Hector Sr., Domingo and Vilma; and nieces and nephews.
Pallbearers will be Rex Jr., Christopher, Jonathan, Justin, Georgia, Jacob, Cesar Jr., and Cash.
Honorable Pallbearers will be Kevin, and Mark.

It doesn’t feel right not getting a phone call or a text asking if I made it home okay from work, coming from your house, making sure Dad & I had food, or making sure I had enough gas in my tank. You taught me to learn how to be at peace when storms are flooding all around me and that I needed to become strong in the Word. No matter what we went through, you had my back and I had yours at the end of the day. I’ll forever miss the three of us in the house when we would spend the night and go to Church the next morning. Dad & I love and miss you so much. Until we meet again. All the way with Hall way ❤️

Our Mom, grandma & great grandma; had her Thanksgiving 🦃 & Christmas 🎄 earlier 🎁 🎁 this year. (This helps us to know; that she didn’t miss out for the holidays) Our mom had many feasts; at her home. She was blessed & loved by all. She prayed 🙏 for all. She called everyone Mihija (my daughter) & Mihijo (my son). She was everyone’s praying Mom & Grandma. ❤️ Her Legacy will live on; in many hearts 💕.
We love you mom; thank you for always sharing Jesus, a prayer life, his word of the good news & worship with us. Because of you his faithful servant; many names have been written on his Eternal Lamb’s Book of Life. We will miss you deeply; but we know that your having a blast. We can only imagine the reunion that awaited you; on Sunday Nov 14th as you made your ascension to Heaven. We can only imagine the vibrant colorful garden 🪴 that you have with fruit trees and beautiful flowers, vegetables growing. Your mansion of many rooms; so that others can stay over for a visit. The feasts and celebrations of seeing prayers go up, and the congratulations with clapping as they are answered. You shared with us many Heavenly experiences; & we witnessed spiritual things; that will forever be imprinted on our hearts & lives. We love you forever & Always.

One of my memories of Mrs. Hall was how she loved to walk bare footed. Seeing her water her fruit trees, plants on 905 Tabor St. She always talked about the Lord through scriptures or seeing her sing about Jesus. If she was inside she had a address/ telephone book close by where she had everyone's numbers in there. A used up Bible in her hands. Prayer intercessory she did. I called her my prayer warrior. I love her for being genuine. Her laugh was so cute. Until we see each other again. XO

Love ❤️ you Sis forever and ever! Hugs & Kisses!

I remember when the Halls moved in across the street from us on Tabor street. I was in the third grade. Michelle and I quickly best friends and remain friends to this day.
Gloria was the best cook. I mostly remember her tacos she made..
O. M. G. those were the best I had ever eaten . I also remember how loving she was towards me and my siblings and pretty much everyone.
Always giving me hugs when I came over to play.
I do remember how much she loved Jesus and was always praising the Lord. Wonderful childhood memories of her for sure.
I know she is with her King now.
The ONE she talked about all her life.
Rest easy sweet lady. You will be missed.

Mom deserves to enjoy her new life. Mom deserves to dance and be free. Thank you God for blessing me with precious moments with Mom. Always in my heart ❤ and memories.

Grandma Gloria was an amazingly strong and loving woman. My favorite memory is a sleepover at her home, among the banana and grapefruit trees. She braided my hair, we watched My Fair Lady, and ate cheesecake for a bedtime snack (thanks to my father for making the late-night grocery run).
She washed my hair with rain water, told me stories about her sleeping in the country with cans as hair rollers, using candles in the dark to read when she was young, and how her mother worked so hard to make sure everyone was cared for.
She inspired my passion for old movies, music, and the arts. Her calm demeanor, patience, consistency, and talent for bringing our imagination to life as kids made it easy for me to grow into skill sets I still use today.
She made it easy to learn that it doesn’t take much to live a good and happy life. A positive outlook and a consistent dose of faith strengthens your spirit.
She also guided me through some of the toughest moments in my life. And I value every moment I’ve had with her.
If I wonder, “what would granny do?” I’m so glad that there’s no question about it.
It would be to pray, seek God, do something for someone else, have empathy for others, and always be kind. No matter the situation.
To a wonderful matriarch, I love you, Granny Gloria ❤️
