Mary Joan (Walter) Hall, 92, of Parker, Colorado, passed away on December 29, 2023. She passed peacefully at home with her son, Chuck, and daughter-in-law, Alys, by her side.
Mary Joan was born on December 13, 1931, to Orval and Dorothy Walter in Lenox, Iowa. She attended school in Lenox where she earned letters in basketball and music. After she graduated from Lenox High School, she attended Simpson College, where she met her future husband, Phillip Hall. She graduated from Simpson College with a BA in Primary Education. She married Phillip on August 23, 1953. Together, they had three sons, Phillip (Phil), Stephan (Steve), and Charles (Chuck).
She was preceded in death by her parents, Orval and Dorothy, husband Phillip, her son Stephan, her brother and sister-in-law, Richard and Mildred Walter, and her nephew, David Walter. She is survived by her sons Phil and his wife Sherie, Chuck and his wife Alys, two grandchildren, Colton and Kelsey, and 3 great grandchildren, Fiona, Delilah, and Theodore.
Mary Joan was a beautiful spirit and loved life and her family. She was happiest when all the family would gather in Lenox or Okoboji. She was a 50-year member of PEO (we never did find out what PEO stood for, but she always said it was for Papa’s Evening Out). She was a member of the Christian Church in Lenox and after her marriage to Phillip, became a lifelong member of the Episcopal Church. She was a member of the Delta Delta Delta Sorority. She enjoyed reading, puzzles, and playing games with her family.
Mary Joan wished to be cremated and buried with her family in Lenox. Graveside services will be held at a later date.
