Nellie Jewell Hall, 91, Liberty, passed away at 1:17 a.m., Monday, May 20, 2019, at the Pleasant Valley Manor Nursing Center in Pleasant Valley.

Nellie was born July 21, 1927, in Banco, West Virginia, to Monroe Barker and Sarah (Williams) Barker.

Nellie was raised and schooled in West Virginia. Following her graduation from high school, Nellie was united in marriage to Thomas Hall. Nellie and Thomas lived several places during their marriage.

Nellie moved to Missouri in 2011, following the death of her husband. She resided in Liberty with a niece, Nellie McClellan, until she moved into the nursing home less than a year ago.

Nellie loved to help her husband and brother build homes, and she would get right in and work with them. She liked hunting, fishing and camping out. She never had any children of her own, but always said her many nieces and nephews were her children, and she loved them all. She was a woman of the pentecost faith. Nellie had a coined phrase when she was ill, "I win either way. If I live, I get to be with my loved ones; If I die, I get to be with God.”

Nellie was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Thomas Hall; four sisters and five brothers.

She is survived by her many nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be from 2 to 3 p.m., Thursday, May 23, 2019, followed by a funeral service at 3 p.m. at the Gowing Funeral Home in Orrick. Burial will be in South Point Cemetery near Orrick.

Memorials are suggested to the Nellie Hall Monument fund, payable to Nellie McClellan.

Arrangements are by Gowing Funeral Home.
