Obituary

Barbara J. Hall 88, of Wall Township, departed this life on Wednesday, January 9, 2019, at home after a lengthy and courageous battle with progressive multiple sclerosis. Born and raised in Jersey City, she attended St. Aloysius High School. As a teenager she enjoyed day trips to New York City and interviewing many movie and Broadway stars. Throughout the years she became pen pals with several stars, including Debbie Reynolds and Frankie Laine. After marrying Conrad F. Hall, they moved to the hills of Highlands, where they raised their family of six children and developed lifelong friendships with their neighbors. Barbara was president of the PTA at Our Lady of Perpetual Help School, class mother, and very involved with her children’s activities. She loved gardening, fashion and keeping a beautiful home. She was an elegant hostess for the many gatherings she had with family and friends. She had a passion for writing and was always sending a letter, note or postcard to someone. She was a woman of grace and charm, welcoming, caring, compassionate, loving and genuine. Barbara was a devout Catholic and parishioner at St. Mark’s Catholic Church, Sea Girt.
Over the past 18 years and throughout her illness, Barbara developed a deep friendship with her caregiver, Manana. Although bedridden, under Manana’s care, she was dressed, hair done, makeup perfect and jewelry on every day. Most noteworthy, despite her physical limitations, Barbara always had a positive attitude and wide loving smile. She was a gentle woman, a kind soul, with a big heart. She will be dearly missed by many.
Barbara was predeceased by her parents, Dennis and Mary Barwood, her sister Claudette, brother Dennis, son Jeffrey and former husband, Conrad. Surviving are her five children, Conrad (Christine) Hall, Mark (Nancy) Hall, Margaret Mary (Richard) Lefebvre, Scott (Dawn) Hall, Julie (Frank) Lembo, daughter-in law Sharon (Keenan) Hall, as well as 10 grandchildren, Mark Jr., Ryan (Nicole), Lauren (Michael), Noel, Christina, Danielle, Jessi, Jeffrey Jr., Owen and Dylan, and 2 great-grandchildren, Michael and David.
Visitation will take place at O’Brien Funeral Home, 2028 Highway 35 at New Bedford Rd., Wall, on Friday, January 11, 2019, from 2-4 and 7-9 P.M. The funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Mark’s Church, Sea Girt, on Saturday, January 12, 2019, at 9:30 A.M. Entombment will follow in St. Catharine Cemetery, Wall.
