Mrs. Helen Irene Johnson Hall, 95, of 1840 Amity Hill Road, Statesville, N.C., passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, August 20, 2020.

Mrs. Hall was born on August 16, 1925, to the late Otis Franklin Sr. and Isolene Whitlock Johnson. She was educated in Iredell County Schools. Ms. Helen first worked in textiles and later worked for Bustle’s Greenhouses for many, many years, where she made numerous friends and shared her love of gardening and the outdoors with everyone. Ms. Helen was also a homemaker, a magnificent cook, and a loving mother, sister, aunt, and grandmother.

On October 6, 1946, Ms. Helen was married to the late Henry Allen Hall Sr., and together they raised eight sons. Ms. Helen was a devout Christian who demonstrated a faith that was strong enough to move mountains. She was kind and generous to anyone who crossed her path, always inviting folks to sit and talk or partake of her delicious, wonderful home cooked meals. Her life is a true witness to all, and there is no doubt that she is now and eternally singing with the saints in glory.

Left to cherish her sweet memories are her sons, Tommy Hall of Abbeville, Ala., David Hall (Carolyn) of Statesville; Henry Hall Jr. (Barbara) of Statesville, Kenneth Hall of the home, Keith Hall of the home; Tim Hall (LeAnne) of Statesville, and Frank Hall (Teresa) of Statesville; 14 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and one great-great Grandchild. Ms. Helen is also survived by her brothers, Raymond Johnson (Elsie) and Elmer Johnson (Mary); her sisters, Marie Cash, Carol Smith, Mary Wise (Buddy) and Patricia Stevenson, along with numerous nieces and nephews. Ms. Helen was preceded in death by her husband Henry Hall Sr.; her oldest son Jerry Hall; her daughter-in-law Cissy Hall; her infant granddaughter Sharon Elizabeth Hall; and her siblings Clarence Johnson, Clay Johnson, Rachel Jurney, James Johnson, Otis Johnson Jr. and her infant brother Delmer Johnson.

Graveside services will be held on Sunday, August 23, at 2 p.m. at Iredell Memorial Gardens with the Rev. Carrilea Potter Hall officiating. The body will lie in state from 12 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 22, 2020, at Nicholson Funeral Home in Statesville, and visitors are welcome to the home at 1840 Amity Hill Road.

    Mrs. Helen will always have a place in my heart. When Tommy and Sissy married, she opened her heart to our entire family and we were always treated like “born to the family” from day one. She truly loved Sissy and our entire family. We love you and will remember you forever.
