Kathleen Adele Hall, 78, left this world on September 27, 2022
Kathleen was born December 3, 1943, and grew up with her two brothers on a farm in Nebraska. She graduated from Clarks High School, where she was a drum majorette and a cheerleader, and attended the University of Nebraska.
A creative and energetic woman, Kathleen had a quick wit and made gift-giving very intentional, meaningful, and was known to add an element of surprise. She worked in data collection for a local economic consulting company; she enjoyed her job and not only brought humor and joy to the office, but she also had a supply of Tootsie Pops available. She was very personable; easy to talk to and get along with. She believed in humility and not taking one’s self too seriously.
Kathleen was family-oriented and very passionate about her grandchildren – she was the best “Nana” ever! She looked forward to family vacations, camping, holidays, and attending all of her grandchildren’s sporting events and various activities. The holidays were when her flair for decorating was evident, and she loved to make the holidays special by hosting meaningful celebrations. She was also an avid reader and enjoyed gardening, lawn work, crochet, crossword puzzles, and playing bridge. She loved antiques and collected salt and pepper shakers, pie birds, and silhouette pictures.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Bobby Hall, and her parents, Claude and Parnella Dexter.
Kathleen is survived by her children, Danielle Legg and Amy Summers; grandchildren, Brian (BJ) Legg and wife Elizabeth, Kaitlyn Legg Villarreal and husband Aaron, Em (Matthew) Legg and Kaci Summers; great grandchildren, Elizabeth Reed Legg and Brielle Ruth Legg; and siblings, Jerry Dexter and wife JoAnn, and Jon Dexter and wife Sharon.
The family would like to acknowledge the special care given to Kathleen by the staff at the Waterford College Station and Allumine Hospice.
