Dorothy Young Hall of Sea Girt passed away peacefully on Monday, February 17th at Geraldine Thompson Care Center in Wall Township. She was 90 years old. Dorothy was born in Montclair, NJ and graduated as valedictorian from Blackstone College for Girls in Blackstone, VA where she enjoyed having Bea Arthur, the Golden Girl, as a suite mate.
Dorothy worked for Allstate Insurance Company for 25 years, first as a secretary and then later as a claims adjustor. She was a member of St. Andrew's Methodist Church in Spring Lake. Dorothy also belonged to the auxiliaries of both the Spring Lake American Legion Post 432 and the Sea Girt Fire Company. After retirement she worked as a badge checker at her favorite place, the Sea Girt beach. Dorothy was also an avid Yankees fan.
She was predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Ralph, in 2001 and her brother, Albert Young, in 1996. She is survived by her son Norman Hall and his wife Eileen as well as her daughter Barbara Hillman and her husband Rob, all of Sea Girt. Dorothy is also survived by four grandchildren, Eric and his wife Mandi Hillman of Ames, IA; Greg and his wife Meghan Hillman of Point Pleasant; Cassandra Hall of Sea Girt; and Melissa Hall and her fiancé Frank Belott, also of Sea Girt. Dorothy also leaves three great grandchildren, Jack, Charlie, and Molly Hillman, as well as several nieces and nephews, and her loving caregiver of nine years, Josephine Rosebud.
