With heavy hearts and great sorrow, we mourn the passing of (Ruth) Alison Hall (nee Jeffries) on August 14, 2019, in her 93rd year. Now reunited with her dearest friend and loving husband, Ross (1999) and much-loved daughter, Barbara (2016). Alison was a devoted mother to Terry and his wife, Jane Ford, Barb and her husband, Niels Rasmussen, and Trish and her husband, Colin Vidler. She was a very proud grandmother to Davis and Gregory Hall, Laina (Lucas Dykstra), Leah and Tiana Rasmussen, Darcy (Darren Gebbetis) and Nigel Vidler. She was predeceased by her parents Harold and Gladys Jeffries, and her siblings Eileen Liddle, Terence Jeffries and Kathryn McNiven. She will be missed by many nieces, nephews and friends. Alison graduated from Victoria College at the University of Toronto with top honours in both academics and athletics. She had a strong sense of community and social responsibility. Alison was an active supporter of Trinity United Church, West Lincoln Memorial Hospital and its Foundation, the Canadian Federation of University Women and the Laurier Liberal Ladies. She served as the Chair of the Blood Donor Recruitment Advisory Committee (Ontario) for the Canadian Red Cross and on the Board of Directors at Albright Manor, Beamsville. She was awarded the Paul Harris Fellowship by Rotary International and was honoured for her contribution to the YMCA, Niagara. A keen sportswoman and fan her entire life, Alison played hockey for the University of Toronto, curled, golfed and coached girls’ hockey and softball. Alison was bright and articulate and enjoyed engaging dialogue and debate. She was truly a partner to Ross, playing an important supporting role in his many civic endeavours and achievements. It was a role she cherished. Visitation will be held at STONEHOUSE-WHITCOMB FUNERAL HOME, 11 Mountain Street, GRIMSBY (905-945-2755) on Monday, August 26, 2019 from 6 - 9 p.m. Funeral Service to take place at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, 10 Mountain Street, Grimsby at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, August 27, 2019.

To Mrs. Hall's Family: We were so very sorry to learn about Mrs. Hall's passing. We were neighbours when she lived in Jordan and enjoyed her company so much. She even gave us a few golf lessons in her backyard, passing on tips she learned from her golf teacher when she was a young girl in Grimsby! We were always impressed with her accomplishments but didn't realize what all of them were until reading her life story. Amazing! Please accept our condolences and most sincere sympathy on the loss of your loving mother and grandmother. Sandy and Ron Philbrick

Mrs. Hall was just such an important part of my childhood “on the hill”. Her care and nurturing, prodding and pushing for excellence will never be forgotten. An amazing influence in my life.
