Julia Hall

June 16, 1923 — June 13, 2019

On June 13, 2019 at 4:15 pm at North Woods Village in Kokomo, Indiana Mother Julia Mae Hall surrounded by her children, grandchildren and other family members received the greatest birthday gift that money could not buy eternal life with Jesus, her Lord and Savior. Julia who later became better known as Ruth was born on June 16, 1923 in Harvey, Illinois to Wilson and Ada Watson. She was married on June 1944 to Milton L. Hall Sr. who preceded her in death.She was a charter member of Harvey Church of God in Christ which later became known as Saint Andrews Church of God in Christ. She would often tell about how the Harvey Church started in her Parents’ home. At the young age of thirteen, she was saved, sanctified, and filled with the precious Holy Ghost under the guidance of Pastor Andrew White.Ruth had 9 brothers and 3 sisters. Her brothers and sisters were, Walter Rose, William Rose, Theodore Rose, Hazel Watson-Lang, Edward Watson, James Watson, Albert Watson, Paul Watson, David Watson, Daisy Watson-Cole, Cecil Watson, and Myrtle Watson-Flynn. Ruth graduated from Thornton Township High School, Harvey, Illinois and was a very good student. She was a talented member of the girls’ basketball team. She studied Business in college. After graduating she worked faithfully in several jobs including nurse's aide in the war, ironing, cleaning, and restaurants to name a few. Without her husband’s knowledge and support she hired herself out and took jobs cleaning homes in Kokomo for well to do families. She also worked at Delco Electronics for 18.5 years after having a hip replacement in 1984 and retired to enjoy the Lord and her family.As the dedicated, committed wife of the late Bishop Milton L. Hall she had 3 sons, and one daughter. Milton L. Hall, Jr., Joyce Marie Rice, Edward Thomas Hall (tragically died as an infant in 1948), Lewis Jerome Hall. Mother Hall prayed for and desired godly spouses for her children whom she had beautifully raised to be leaders and workers in the Church of God in Christ. Mother Ruth loved the Lord even at an early age and also held many offices in the church from a child through her mature years. She multitasked in God's service for many years. She sung in many choirs at the local, district, and state levels as an alto, soprano, and led many gospel songs when requested by the choir leaders. She was a licensed missionary and held numerous positions in almost every capacity within the church. She was an usher, church Secretary, YWCC President, Sewing Circle member, Memorial Assistant District #3 Missionary, Sunshine Band Leader, Puritan Leader, Vacation Bible School Teacher, YPWW Field Worker, Sunday School Teacher and Superintendent, State Women's Dept. Examining Board member and Advisory Board Member. She was the founder of the Ruth Circle which has been instrumental in teaching many young women. She was the wonderful 1st Lady of New New Bethany, Marion, IN and Grace Memorial Institutional, Kokomo, IN and she was an outstanding 1st Lady of 1st Jurisdiction of Indiana, Church of God in Christ. The Jurisdiction affectionately called her “Our Darling”. Mother Hall worked beyond the domination line and attended and worked with various community ministerial groups such as The Women in Professional Ministries and The Women United group 20 years combined with both groups. These are only some of the work of this devoted prayer warrior who often gave her “blessed cloths” away across the nation with a smile and a prayer.This devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great, great grandmother was adored by her family and she showed her love and support for them daily. She enjoyed baking her family’s favorite birthday cake. Her favorite pastime activity was crocheting beautiful Afghan blankets, and adding borders to washcloths and handkerchiefs. The many acknowledgments and awards that she received cannot capture the true depth and breadth of her work. Mother Julia M. Hall continued to be a faithful servant of the Lord during her extended illness and even while in North Woods Village in Kokomo, IN. She prayed for countless residents and staff. There were even documented miracles while she was there. We even witnessed her praying for a hospital Chaplin in the ER and he was nearly slayed in the Spirit had he not caught himself. On another occasion a North Wood Village employee brought her infant child who had not been sleeping at home. She laid the child on Mother Hall’s chest and the child immediately calmed down and later went home and slept for hours. Here is a Miracle she told us: In 2007 I was picked up by an Angel. I had fallen in the front yard. No one was around. A blonde gentleman on a bicycle picked me up and then disappeared. I never saw him again. Only God will give her a just reward and recognition, when He tells her, "Well done thy good, and faithful servant." Favorite Scripture passage is; Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Most used phrase; I just wanna do right. Later in her waning years when the family would ask her do to anything she would say, without any disagreement or dissimulation, “I just wanna do right.” She leaves to cherish her memory a legacy of love and faith to her children; Superintendent Milton L. Hall, Jr. (Missionary Glenda Hall); Missionary Joyce Marie Rice; Elder Lewis Jerome Hall (Missionary DeElla Hall); her grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, God children, a host of nieces, nephews and extended family.Celebration of Life services for Mother Julia Mae Hall, wife of the late Bishop Milton L Hall, Sr.Indiana First Jurisdiction Friday June 21, 20194 pm to 6 pm Viewing6 pm to 8 pm Memorial ServiceOfficiant Pastor A.
