Loretta Hall

DIAMOND—Loretta L. Hall, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and aunt, passed away peacefully on Nov. 11, 2023, in Diamond.
Born on Sept. 20, 1942, in Ottumwa, IA, she was the daughter of Charles and Icyphene (Steele) Steen, Loretta was always a shining light in the lives of those who knew her. Her loving and kind nature left a lasting imprint on many hearts.
Loretta was united in marriage to her devoted husband, Larry Hall, in 1961. Their union was a testament to love and commitment, as they spent more than six decades together, building a family and creating countless cherished memories. The couple was blessed with five children: Robert Hall, Rich (Robin) Hall, Sherry (Wendell) Haus, Cindy (Joel) Sanabria and Ricky W. Hall. She was a loving and nurturing mother who provided a warm, welcoming home filled with love and kindness.
As a grandmother and great-grandmother, Loretta was a beacon of love and wisdom for her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her nurturing spirit and interesting stories from her own life experiences were a source of guidance and inspiration for the younger generations. Her legacy of love, kindness, and family values will live on through them.
In addition to her immediate family, Loretta is survived by her brother, Tim Steen; her sister-in-law, Marcia (Dennis) Huddelston; and her brother-in-law, Keith (Brenda) Roe. She was a pillar of support and love for her siblings and their families, always there with a kind word or a helping hand. Loretta also leaves behind many loving nieces and nephews who will remember her fondly.
Loretta was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Icyphene Steen. They instilled in her the values of love and kindness that she carried throughout her life and passed on to her own family. She was also preceded by her son, Ricky Hall in 2004 and her sisters and brothers.
Loretta L. Hall was a woman of immense love and kindness and a pillar of strength for her family. Her legacy will forever be etched in the hearts of those who had the privilege to know her. Though she has departed from this world, her spirit lives on in the lives she touched and the love she spread.
As we bid farewell to Loretta, we celebrate her life and the love she shared with us all. Her memory will forever be a guiding light, illuminating our paths with her enduring love and kindness. Loretta, you will be deeply missed, but your spirit will live on in our hearts forever.
