Feb. 21, 1926—May 24, 2019
Beverlee Clark Dolan Hall passed away peacefully on May 24, 2019.
The descendant of early Oregon Pioneers who crossed the plains in 1848 on her mother’s side, and a daughter of Ireland on her father’s side, she was born and raised in Portland, OR, the daughter of Thomas and Stella (Belknap) Dolan.
She graduated from Grant High School in Portland in 1944, and was a graduate of Oregon State University, where she was affiliated with Kappa Alpha Theta.
She married her college sweetheart, David Hall, in 1948, and they had three children: Thomas, Steven and Connie. She was a volunteer and financial contributor throughout her life to many organizations, including PTA, Cub Scouts (den mother), Camp Fire Girls, Little League Secretary-Treasurer, American Red Cross, AAUW, and Republican Women.
She was a member of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, where she served for many years as a member of the Altar Guild, and a member of PEO in Eureka, CA; Port Angeles, WA; and Longview.
Her prime interests in life were her husband of 64 years, their children and grandchildren, and her friends who were very important to her. Her other interests included tennis, golf, gardening, travel, reading, sewing and music.
Because of her husband’s employment with Crown Zellerbach, the family was transferred a number of times up and down the West Coast. They moved to Longview in 1980, where they lived longer than at any other place in her life.
She was preceded in death by her husband David in 2013. She is survived by her sons Tom (Aelea), of Bend and Steve, of San Francisco; her daughter Connie, of Sunriver; seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
A celebration of life will be held at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Longview at 3 p.m., July 13.
