Ethel Hall

Ethel Ann Hall of Ogilvie died on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at the Cambridge Medical Center. She was 89 years old.
Ethel was born in Columbia Heights, Minnesota to Esther and Alvin Anderson on November 15, 1927. She was baptized at the home of her grandparents, Charles and Anna Ostrom in Lewis Lake by her uncle, Rev Strandlund. She grew up in the Columbia Heights area just north of Minneapolis. She and her husband Owen Hall built a successful new business from scratch named Industrial Spray Painting. Several years later they decided to relocate to a Lewis Lake farm to raise their five children: Randy David, Richard Lydon, Reagan Thomas, Renee Susan, and Rocklin Scott alone on the farm. After her children were all grown, she brought in a house from the Dalbo area and created her current home and gardens north of the Lewis Lake church. Ethel enjoyed developing her skills as a landscape designer by designing various garden areas at the blue roofed farm and at her current home named “Hall-a-Day acres.” Her interest, creative ability and vision in creating beauty in her gardens led her to hold garden parties and tours to let others enjoy the vistas she had designed and built.
Ethel is preceded in death by her parents Esther and Alvin Anderson; her husband Owen David Hall; her son Rocklin Scott Hall; her sister Clarice Domres and her brothers Curtis Anderson and Floyd Anderson.
She is survived by her sons Randy (Mary) Hall, Richard (Melodee) Hall, Reagan (Deborah) Hall; her daughter Suzanne (Carl Jones) Reinhardt; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as other relatives and friends.

Visitation was on Monday, June 5, 2017 from 5 until 7 p.m. at Dresser-Methven Funeral Home in Mora, as well as one hour prior to the service at the church. Burial was at Lewis Lake Cemetery.
