Mary Lou Hall

November 5, 1936 — January 14, 2024

Mary Lou Hall, age 87, passed from this life on January 14, 2023, in Ruidoso, New Mexico. She was born on November 5, 1936, in Birmingham, Alabama to the late Georgiana and Beader Sanders.

Mary Lou loved sports, especially football and basketball. It was not surprising to find both her televisions on with a different game playing on each one. She was a fan of Alabama, as well as the UNM Lobos where she attended both football and basketball games, especially the women’s games, with her beloved husband Robert (Squeaky). She also loved the Dallas Cowboys and was even able to attend at least one of the Super Bowl games they played in.

She was very involved in the Alamosa Neighborhood Association in Albuquerque, where she sat on the board for many years. She helped bring many changes that benefited her community that included beautification projects, improving security and protection services provided by the local law enforcement, and the building of the community center that still provides many services for the community to this day.

Mary Lou Hall worked in several occupations, but her longest work experience was with the Albuquerque Public Schools where for over 25 years she was a librarian assistant and nurse’s assistant.

She enjoyed cooking and hosted friends and family often. Mary Lou loved a good oatmeal cookie. She had a big sweet tooth and enjoyed any sweet given to her.

Mary Lou loved her church, Riverside Church of Christ, where she could be found involved in every activity they had. She truly loved her Lord and Savior. In her last residence, Good Life Assisted Living, she was known for carrying her Bible around. She loved to sing and had a wonderful voice. It is safe to assume she knew many songs in any hymnal by heart.

Most of all, she loved her family. She was married to her beloved husband Robert for 59 years, and many stories can be shared of their great marriage. She was always interested, and when needed, involved in her children, grandchildren, and extended family's lives.

Mary Lou was much loved by her family and friends, and she will be dearly missed. Every time an oatmeal cookie is eaten, a Dallas Cowboy game is watched, or her favorite Christian hymn is sung, we will remember fondly the great lady who was Mary Lou Hall.

She is survived by her sons, Reuben Hall and wife Jennifer of Roswell, New Mexico, and Carlton Hall and wife Karla of Silver City, New Mexico; daughters, Marquette Wilson and husband Dennis of South Salem, New York, and Aleena Palmer and husband Jim of Albuquerque, New Mexico; grandchildren, Jared Hall (Jamie Fields), Matthew Hall (Sarah), Scott Hall (Kaitlyn), Jordan Hall, Brice Wilson, and Jacquelyn Palmer; great grandchildren, Judah and Evelynn Hall, Gideon Hall, Melody Hall and Leann Fields; sisters, Claurice McCoy and LaJuania Jones; and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.

Mary Lou is preceded in death by her parents; her beloved husband, Robert; daughter, Claurice Brown; sister, Bradine Chandler; and brothers, Marcus, Dennis, Robert, and George Sanders.
