Mary Kathleen Hall, 76, of Brevard, passed away at her home peacefully on Tuesday, September 29th, 2020. She was surrounded by her loving family and a beautiful sunset as she entered into her heavenly home. She was the daughter of the late Robert and Lola Owen. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Lynwood Coleman Hall, and brothers, Floyd Owen, Phillip Owen, and Robert Boyd Owen.
Survivors include sisters, Ellen Jean (Sally) Owen, Patsy Carolyn Galloway, Joan Amelia Ziegler; one daughter, Cynthia Hall Petit (Eric); two grandchildren, Cameron Petit and Candace Reese (Hunter); one great grandchild on the way and many nieces and nephews.
Her belated husband and love of her life, Lynwood Coleman Hall, passed away on November 22, 2008. They were married for 45 years. Lynwood and Kathleen Hall were active members of Mountain View Baptist Church and were a part of the many community members that helped establish and build the church. Kathleen had a heart of gold and nothing brought her more joy than spending time with her family and friends. Kat, as she was known, was a compassionate and caring Christian. She instilled many life lessons and knowledge into her family and all that knew her. She spent her life teaching, loving, and giving of herself.
Kathleen had a work ethic like no other and she possessed independence, determination, and leadership. Her careers included Rosman Research Station (currently PARI), Mitchell Bissell, American Thread, and Quebec Stowaway. At the Rosman Research Station, Kathleen began as a part-time guard and worked her way up to Captain for Pinkerton Security Service. She was employed there for 18 years overseeing 31 guards, 1 lieutenant, and 2 sergeants. With her white glove honor, she escorted many Department of Defense VIPs. Her awards during this time included a two- time Security Guard Officer of the Month, Regional Supervisor of the Month, and Certificate of Meritorious Achievement.
Kathleen’s laugh and contagious smile will be missed greatly by her family and friends. We cling to the promise that we will see her again.
On her behalf, the family would like to thank the staff at the Messino Cancer Center and Care Partner Hospice Staff.
Her legacy will be honored at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2, 2020, at Mountain View Baptist Church with graveside service to follow.
