Mary Lou Hall, our dear Mother, entered eternal life Sunday, February 24, 2013. She was born on November 27, 1926 to parents, Louis W. & Rosa Blanch Peterson in Emery, Utah. She attended schools nearby and enjoyed country life with her family that consisted of six children. Following her graduation from South High School in Salt Lake City, Utah, she met her future husband E. Earl Hall on a blind date and it was love at first sight. Earl was just back home after serving his country in the Navy during World War II. After a short courtship, they were married August 27, 1947, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple and left soon after to California to start their new married life in Palm Springs. Earl partnered with designer Horace J. Head and together purchased Palm Springs Florist. The day following their marriage Mary Lou & Earl set up a home in a small trailer with no cooling and thus it was a long hot summer. Mom always made her house a home: it didn't matter if it was a small trailer or a beautiful well designed home, love always abounded there. In the early days, Earl would peddle his bicycle and petite Mary Lou could be seen riding on the handle bars, carefully balancing the flower arrangement in her hands as they made the deliveries. They always worked together: Earl ran the shop and Mary Lou did the books. Every holiday Mom would manage the office phones taking orders. Mom was thrilled to become a mother, first to arrive was Stephen Earl, then followed fraternal twin sons, Kent Brian and Brent James and to complete the family was their daughter, Susan Louise. Mom was very active throughout her days in California, serving faithfully & diligently in the programs of the church & community. She enjoyed exercising & especially her days playing tennis. Mary Lou loved good books & was well read. Her life & home were filled with love and you felt it the minute you stepped through the door. She was welcoming to all & you always left feeling of her acceptance, concern & that you were truly cared about and fed. Mary Lou always took time to listen & offer advise if asked, she wasn't ever boastful but so very proud of her family & all their accomplishments. She was our greatest cheerleader! Mom was always at her best, the perfect daughter, sister, wife, mother grandma, great grandma, aunt, teacher & friend. An excellent cook, Mary Lou was delighted to entertain her family & friends, where there was always room for one or two more. They opened their home for wedding receptions, parties & occasionally took in friends of family that needed a place to stay. She was the best hostess ever & made sure the cookie jar was always full. Mom moved to Lindon, Utah to live with her daughter Susan & family after suffering a stroke & following the passing of her husband Earl in November 2009. Mom left us with a legacy of love, service & beauty. Preceded in death by her husband E. Earl & son Kent. Survived by son Stephen (Julie) Hall, South Jordan Utah: Brent (Dru) Hall, Palm Springs, Calif.; Susan (Randy) Hoyt, Lindon, Utah; many grandchildren & great grandchildren. Funeral Services will be held at the LDS Church, Palm Springs Ward, 1400 Avenida Caballeros in Palm Springs, Tuesday March 5 with a visitation at 9am followed by 10am service Interment; Welwood Murray Cemetery
