Hattie Wadsworth Hall was born to Preston G. and Alice Harrison Hall on April 25, 1917 in Winnsboro, SC.  She was preceded in death by sisters: Fannie Hall Smithers of Smithfield, VA and Elizabeth Hall Boyd of New York.  She attended school in Fairfield County in Winnsboro.  She relocated to Greensboro, NC after the death of her brother-in-law to live with her sister, Alberta. Hattie was baptized when she was twelve years of age at Old White Oak Baptist Church in Winnsboro, SC.  Reverend H. W. Anderson was pastor. In New York, she became a member of Bethel Baptist Church under the pastorate of Reverend L. H. Wade.  She remained a member of Bethel for thirty (33) years.  While there she was a member of the Pastor’s Aide Club and Missionaries.  She supported the American Bible Society—and purchased Bibles to send overseas. Hattie later moved to White Plains, NY to further her education.  She was trained at the Infant and child Care Institute, and received certification to care for children.  Her work allowed her to fulfill a desire to travel.  Bus trips and travel with the families that she worked for allowed her to see many places: Hollywood, California; Miami, Florida and Orlando, Florida where she had a visit to Disney World.  She also travelled to Canada and other cities and states.  She worked for more than fifteen (15) families during her career of caring for children.  She also worked at a hospital in West Chester County through Total Care Nursing Association.

    I am so sorry to learn about the death of your loved one Hattie Wadsworth Hall. I pray that the many fond memories of her will always live in your minds and hearts. How good it is to know that our loved ones are only sleeping and that one day our heavenly father Jehovah will bring them back to life by means of the resurrection, John5:28-29 What a wonderful time that will be! Can you imagine the joy that will fill our hearts at that time? DO not let your heart be troubled. Believe in the promises of God and find inner peace of mind and heart. Once again I am sorry for your loss!

    Our deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear family member. How comforting to know that when death claims one of our loved ones, others feel our pain and grief. Our loving heavenly father feels our pain as well. He offers comfort to us from his word the Bible. Psalm 34:18 reminds us that “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." And the beautiful promise for the future at Revelation 21:4 which says: “And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”. May these Bible truths help you to cope during the difficult days ahead.
