Lauderdale, FL, to Edwin Gordon Hall and Annabel Smith Hall. She was educated in Florida graduating from Ft. Pierce High School. She was a proud graduate of Wesleyan Conservatory, Macon GA with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. During college she met and later married the love of her life Dennis John Flanagan Beall. Together they raised 2 daughters. Mrs. Beall proudly called Macon her home since 1949. After college she worked as a bookkeeper at Southern Chemical Co in Macon, owned a Consignment store, Stratford Academy volunteer mom, and worked in local gift boutiques including Fancy That, The Mole Hole, and Steve Popper’s. Her favorite job was at Stein Mart where she received an honor as their oldest Boutique Lady, employed for 10 years working well into her 80’s. She was a founding member of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, PCUSA and served several terms as an Elder. She was a devoted member of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution for over 60 years, and the most senior Honorary State Regent having served 2 terms as State Regent of the Georgia State Society. It was her great joy to present the DAR Good Citizen and American History awards annually at Stratford Academy and Mt.deSales. Genealogy was a passion and she held membership and elected office in numerous historical societies including United Daughters of the Confederacy, National and Georgia Society Daughters of the Colonial Wars (past State President), Continental Society of Indian Wars, Magna Charta Dames and Barons, Dames of the Court of Honor, Colonial Dames of the XVII Century, Bench and Bar, among others. Civic organizations included the Loaves and Fishes Ministry where she served as a Board member since her “near death experience” in 2008. It was her promise to God to help serve the underserved. She enjoyed her friendships through the House and Garden Club, Macon Elks Club, and a Bridge Club that began together nearly 60 years ago. Heaven will be brimming with beautiful flowers and bridge teas.
