ObitAlice Corrine Hall, 98, of Sedalia, MO, passed away Wednesday, February 7th, 2018 at Rest Haven Convalescent Home. She was born on October 3, 1919 in Cole Station, IL, the daughter of James Albert Eaton and Mary Lucinda Sacarissie Outland-Eaton, who preceded her in death.

On March 18, 1943, in Clinton, MO,  she was united in marriage to William “Bill” Ray Hall, who preceded her in death.

Alice grew up in Clinton, MO. She was a 1943 graduate of Calhoun High School. After graduating high school, she worked at a shoe factory in Windsor, MO, making Russian army shoes. She met and married Bill and spent some time living in California to accommodate his position as he served through World War II. Alice and Bill eventually settled in Windsor after Bill’s discharge. Alice worked as the head of the Textbook Library at CMSU and then retired in the early 1980s and began to travel the country with Bill. She loved to travel and was able to visit 32 of the 50 United States, as well as Canada and Mexico. She also enjoyed reading, sewing and crafting, and was a member of the First United Methodist Church. She loved visiting friends and, above all else, spending time with her family.
