Wanda B. Hall

Wanda B. Hall, 90, died Sept. 28, 2012. She was born on March 9, 1922, in Mercury.

She lived a blessed, full and active life and was an inspiration to many through her faith, her world journeys and an unrelenting passion for sports.

She was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ and enjoyed studying, teaching and sharing her faith through Sunday school and various other community organizations. For more than 40 years, she taught and served world missions through World Bible School correspondence courses.

She was an avid sports enthusiast as a participant and, sometimes, as a spectator. She enjoyed backpacking, hiking, golf, tennis and running, her greatest joy. She participated in many races, including the annual Capitol 10K in Austin for 25 years, receiving multiple gold medals, and in the National Senior Olympic Games. At the age of 87, she placed second in the 2009 Francisco Bay Area-Summer National Senior Games. She also was a devoted Dallas Cowboys fan.

Survivors include sons Dr. Jon Roger Hall and wife Kim of Las Cruces, N.M., and Robert W. Hall and wife Linda of Midland; five grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and three nieces.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Harold B. Hall.

A graveside service is at Cox Cemetery in Mercury.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the University Church of Christ Las Cruces, N.M., a charity of choice or the National Parkinson Disease Association.
