June Hall, 94, With the Lord

ASHLAND, OHIO -- June Elizabeth Hall, 94, Ashland, died March 2, 2010, following a short illness.

June was born in Sterling, Ohio, to Harvey and Mary Etta Hartzler, and married the late Nelson Hall on Aug. 21, 1938. He died on Feb. 2, 1979.

She served joyfully with Nelson, a Grace Brethren pastor, in churches in Homerville, Ohio; Long Beach and Tracy, Calif.; Albany, Ore.; Richland and Toppenish, Wash.; and Winona, Minn.

She taught Sunday school and Child Evangelism Fellowship, led women's ministries, including Spice of Life in Toppenish, engaged in hospitality and faithfully witnessed for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was strongly committed to Grace Brethren missionary efforts and contributed to an orphanage in the Central African Republic.

Surrounded by family members, she continued to share her faith until the end. She expressed confidence in imminently being with Jesus in heaven, while continuing to encourage others in making certain they have the same assurance.

She expressed gratitude to the staff of Kingston of Ashland and Cambridge Home Health Care for their dedication to her. She also appreciated the staff and residents of Mill Run Place.

A loving and devoted mother and grandmother, she is survived by her children Junelle (Ed) Bjerke of Albany, Ore., Jeanene Helfrich of Colorado Springs, Colo., the Rev. Jonathan (Linda) Hall of Ashland, formerly of Wooster; 10 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren; and one great-great grandchild.

Preceding her in death were two sisters, Ferne Barnard and Mary Gail Yeakley, and two brothers, Merle and Roscoe Hartzler.

Arrangements are being handled by Roberts Funeral Home.

A service of celebration will be held at Ashland Grace Brethren Church, 1144 W. Main St., Ashland, at noon Friday, with the viewing hour beginning at 11 a.m.

Memorial contributions may be made to Project Hope and Charite, which supports orphans in the Central African Republic.
