Onell attended Guilford County local schools, graduated from Rankin High School and Mars Hill University. Returning to her hometown, she worked at Cone Mills, Sears, Belk and the telephone company. Onell met and fell in love with George Jolly Hall, marrying him on Dec. 20, 1947, in a double ceremony with George's sister, Charlotte (Howard) in Greensboro, N.C.
Once married, George's career with the government took them to Goldsboro, Williamsburg, Norfolk and Hampton Roads. Onell adapted well to home life as George traveled, filling her days with beautifying their yards with plants and flowers and actively volunteering in the churches she attended and gave generously to ministries through her church. She enjoyed playing tennis, golf, sewing, drawing and painting; but her favorite past time was gardening, having lovely flower beds everywhere she lived. Onell was sweet, kind, loyal, generous, caring and soft spoken, always having a smile for everyone she met. Pets were a large part of her life and she loved them as she did her family - unconditionally.
In 1996 Onell and George moved to Twin Likes Community, where George still resides.
