Shirley Ann Hall
October 15, 1930 – February 3, 2019
Shirley Ann Hall, Aliquippa, passed away peacefully on February 3, 2019 at the age of 88, after living with Alzheimer’s for many years. She was born October 15, 1930, in Aliquippa daughter of the late William Clark “Bill” and Edith Elizabeth (Bathurst) Hall. In addition to her parents, Shirley was also preceded by her older brothers: William E. “Bill” Hall and Clark H. “Bud” Hall; and her nephew: Clark I. Hall. She is survived by her nieces and nephews: Susan Ruckert of Ambridge, Ted Hall of Napa, California, Jane Beverly of San Antonio, Texas, Barbara Hall Blumer of Corning, New York, Steve Hall of Palo Alto, California and Christine Hall of Sonoma, California, as well as many grandnieces and grandnephews, who remember her fondly as Aunt Shirl or Aunt Shirley. Shirley is a 1948 graduate of Aliquippa High School and attended all of her class reunions until 2013. She graduated from the Accounting Division of Robert Morris Business School, one of two women in her class, and joined the Accounting Department of Sinclair-Koppers (ARCO Polymers) where she worked for 35 years, retiring in 1985. Shirley took pride in the fact that she taught herself to drive a stick-shift to get to work which developed into a lifelong love of her cars. Throughout her life she was a very active volunteer, starting as a teenager at the Aliquippa Hospital Auxiliary. She supported many organizations, including Meals on Wheels for 25 years, and was an aide at West Hills Rehabilitation Center of Coraopolis. Shirley was a lifelong member of the First Baptist Church of Woodlawn, and participated in many of their activities, including serving as Treasurer, as well as enjoying traveling with their church groups, to Europe and Hawaii. She also enjoyed visiting family in Texas, and later in California. After retirement, she was best known for her candy making skills, bringing them to all occasions, and continued to use her accounting skills supporting many organizations. When she moved to Moon Twp. in the 80’s, she avidly attended many of her grandnieces’ and grandnephews’ events. In 2013 she moved and became a resident at Concordia of Franklin Park. Friends will be received on Saturday, February 9, 2019 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the SAUL-GABAUER FUNERAL HOME, INC., 273 Route 68, Rochester (adjacent to Sylvania Hills Memorial Park Mausoleum).
