Eva Johanna Hall, 94, passed away at Where The Heart Is Assisted Living Facility in Burlington, WA on Wednesday, June 2, 2021. Formerly a longtime resident of the Punkin Center community near Hamilton, WA, she resided at the assisted living facility for the past 13 years.
Eva was born on March 16, 1927 in Erskine, MN. to Herman and Helga Petersen. The family moved to the Hamilton area in the fall of 1941, where Eva attended school and graduated from Sedro-Woolley High School where she met the love of her life. On January 27, 1946, she was united in marriage to Richard Norman Hall, Sr. and enjoyed 60 years of marriage until Richard’s death in 2006. During their marriage they had the opportunity to live in Bellingham where Richard graduated with a Master’s Degree in Education from Western Washington College. In 1958, the family moved to New York State where Richard was a professor and administrator at State University of New York in Buffalo for many years. Eva worked as a dental receptionist until she suffered a brain aneurism at 39. She worked very hard to get 100% of her faculties back. After Richard’s retirement, Eva and Richard moved back to the family homestead in Punkin Center.
