MILDRED (MILEIGH) MARIE HALL Mildred (Mileigh) Marie Hall, 86, of Kansas City, Mo., passed away August 8, 2014, at St. Luke's Hospice House after a brief illness. Mileigh was born in Lincoln, Kan., to L.J. and Bertha Starks. She was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Richard B. Hall. After R.B.'s passing in 2005, she found love again and married their mutual friend and former co-worker, Albert P. Wells. For five years, until Al's passing in 2011, they lived in Miami, Fla., and traveled the country by car. She is survived by her daughters, Kristine Hall Bailey (Bill) of Lawrence, Kan., and Patty Hall Wood (Tom) of Kansas City, as well as her step-children, Bunny Hall Basse (Barry) of Ashburn, Va., Richard B. Hall, II (Jane) of Norfolk, Va., and Roger E. Hall (Jodi) of Republic, Wash. "Mimi's" legacy includes 13 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother, Lyle Starks (Carol) of Mesquite, Nev. At the age of 18, Mileigh arrived in Kansas City by train from Lincoln, finding employment at the Uptown Theater's ticket office, and later at Kansas City Life Insurance. But her real passion was travel, and at the age of 20, she became a stewardess for World Airways/North American Airlines where she met and married the guy in the cockpit, R.B. Later in life, Mileigh re-married his friend and fellow pilot, Al Wells. After her children were raised, Mileigh became a travel agent and took great pride in starting a travel school, the first of its kind, for Passport Travel. Mileigh was an active volunteer throughout her life, generously giving her time to Girl Scouts, her church, KC Visitor's Bureau, KCI Airport Ambassadors, VA Auxiliary and Toastmasters, where she won a blue ribbon for her public speaking skills. As a lifelong member of Ward Parkway Presbyterian Church, and devotee of the Lord, Mileigh never met a stranger. Mileigh's world was a stage, and she wowed us daily with her put-together presentation and performance. Her famous meatball recipe will give us a taste of heaven for generations to come. Mileigh received groundbreaking ear surgery in the 1950's and has donated her temporal bones to Harvard School of Medicine. Memorial services pending. Donations may be made to Ward Parkway Presbyterian Church, 7406 Ward Parkway, Kansas City, MO 64114. Online condolences may be left for the family at www.muehlebachchapel.com Muehlebach Funeral Care. Established and Family Owned Since 1954.
