Katie and I are privileged to have a grandson, David Hall, working for us. Pauline was clearly an amazing person with deep roots and a large family she was able to influence. I suspect if I had met her I would see the characteristics and integrity that make David such a wonderful member of our work family. I am sorry for your loss and hope you all find comfort in the mark she clearly made on the world.
Pauline M. Hall
December 19, 1934 – March 23, 2023
Pauline M. Hall, 88, of St. Cloud, MN passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family on March 23, 2023, at Quiet Oaks Hospice in St. Cloud. She was born at home in St. Cloud on December 19, 1934, to Clemens and Rose (Turnowski) Kammermeier. She graduated from Tech High School in 1953. She married James A. Hall on February 13, 1954, at St. Mary’s Cathedral.
She was a homemaker extraordinaire. She raised six children while always looking beautiful. She loved to entertain and her menus, table settings, and lovely homes made an invitation from her always something to look forward to. She had countless friends including some from as far back as kindergarten. She was very involved in her community including hosting successful fundraisers for causes close to her heart. She belonged to the St. Stephen’s Mission Group, St. Paul’s Church, Reading Room, Daughters of Isabella, Mrs. Jaycees, and regularly volunteered for Meals on Wheels – just to name a few of her many charitable activities.
But most of all she loved to be surrounded by her loving family that now totals 56, whether at her beautiful home on Grand Lake or in Rancho Mirage, CA. She loved hosting holiday gatherings for her family, including her last one in 2017 where 45 family members gathered and 5 of her granddaughters were expecting. Her last big event was planning her husband’s 90th birthday party this past August for over 70 people.
Everyone loved Pauline’s homemade potato salad, onion bread, spareribs and sauerkraut, and chocolate chip cookies (heavy on the nuts). She never let anyone go home without a bag of goodies including leftovers, and of course, more cookies.
Pauline is survived by James, her husband of 69 years; children Judge Sharon Hall (James Page), Karen Miller (Timothy), John Hall (Nancy), Daniel Hall (Julie), Ann Crepeau (Donald Tremblay); daughter in law Bonnie Hall; 15 grandchildren and 18 greatgrandchildren; sisters Connie Valdeperas, Carol Herman, and Linda Wolfe; brother Ronald Kammermeier and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents, son Loran Hall, brother Robert Kammeier, and sister Dolores Henning.
Pauline always loved a party but requested that her funeral services be private, and her family is honoring her wishes. Reverend LeRoy Scheierl will officiate. Entombment will take place at the Assumption Cemetery Mausoleum in St. Cloud. Memorials are preferred in lieu of flowers to Cathedral High School or Quiet Oaks Hospice.
Sympathy to Jim, Bonnie, Angela and family. We have fond memories of the elegant “picnics” you hosted at the lake for Exchange Club.
Rest In Peace, Pauline.
Dear Jim and family,
It is with our deepest sympathy that we send our condolences on the loss of your dear wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother Pauline.
We treasure the times we spent with you both especially reminiscing about your parents Erv and Louise and Bob’s parents Tony and Rose being life long friends. Pauline and I so enjoyed your memories.
Pauline had a way of making everyone she knew feel like they were her best friends. Thanks Pauline for always making us feel that way.
You were a star with your warm welcomes and delicious meals and just being you.
May you rest in peace surrounded by God’s Heavenly angels entertaining them no doubt.
Love from Bob and Karen
Her laugh! An unforgettable laugh – part of an unforgettable woman!
My loving sister was one of a kind, beautiful inside and out. I will always hold onto all the times we shared in Minnesota and California those memories I will always hold dear to my heart. Heaven gained an Angel. She will be missed by family and friends.
One secret mom and I had was when we were young I always wanted to wear what Pauline was wearing because she always dressed so nice and she would always tell me NO, so one day mom let me wear one of her outfits and I so loved it. Mom then washed put it back and it was our little secret. Thanks for the memories sis. Love to the family.
We have such fond memories of Pauline . Pauline many years ago used to take the Mathew Hall Office staff out for lunch at Christmas time , we so enjoyed reminiscing and getting “insider info” on the boys and their antics when they were young! Pauline always stopped in my office in her visits to the store to inquire how things were going. The obituary is a perfect tribute to her ! Our thoughts and prayers go out to each and every one of the family members during this difficult time.
With my love and sympathy to all of the family.
Words cannot express the sadness of the passing of Aunt Pauline. What a loving, caring, giving person she was. I know she will be truly missed by all. She was the matriarch of the family. Hold on to all the wonderful memories and know she will be watching over her family that she cherished so much. Prayers and love. Roxanne & Mike
I have fond memories of visiting and staying in the guesthouse at the lake with Abby. It was a beautiful home and I always felt so welcomed by the Millers and by Pauline.
My thoughts are with all of you as you celebrate Pauline’s life. She will live on in your hearts.
