Holly Heloice Hall

Holly Heloice Hall, 86, passed away 2:55 a.m. Oct. 23, 2004, 
at Houston Hospice House in Houston, Texas. She was a longtime 
resident of Jacksonville, Ark., and a member of First Baptist Church. 

Mrs. Hall was born July 25, 1918, in Mt. Vernon, a twin daughter of 
the late Clyde E. and Evelyn Jester Adams. She married Lt. Col. 
John C. Hall, deceased, in 1941 and moved to Jacksonville, Ark., in 
1956 upon his B-47 bomber pilot assignment to Strategic Air Command's 
newest base, Little Rock Air Force Base. She was an unsung heroine of 
the cold war, managing single-handedly a household and raising their 
two children, living in numerous states and foreign countries while 
her husband was flying missions. Mrs. Hall received her B.S.E. and M.S.E. 
from the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, Ark., and was a career 
educator, serving as teacher and principal in the North Little Rock School 
District. 

Mrs. Hall was also preceded in death by her twin sister, Helen A. Reynolds 
of Mt. Vernon. 

She is survived by a daughter, Lynn E. Barron and husband Joe T. of Houston, 
Texas; a son, John C. Hall of Lakeway, Texas; a grandson, Jay T. Barron of 
Austin, Texas; a sister, Leslie Ellis of Chester; and a nephew, Richard Benson 
of Nairobi, Kenya, South Africa.

cemetery on Wednesday. There will be no public visitation. Memorials may
