Obituary

On June 18, 2022, Terttu Hall (Teri) went to our Heavenly Father, she went peacefully in her sleep at age 97 in Reading, PA.

Teri was born in New York City to Hilda and Arvo, two lovely people who arrived from Boston from Finland. Teri identified very strongly with her Finnish roots. She learned to speak Finnish fluently by staying with her grandmother in Finland one summer.

She finished her degree from Pratt Institute and became an accomplished designer with a long career in the design field.

When asked “what was your greatest accomplishment?” She replied, “It was to be a good mother.” She will be truly missed by daughters Bonnie Bowers of Shillington, PA, Belinda Riggs of NC, Grandchildren, Garth Brown of PA, Makenzie Brown of AZ, Sean Morrissey of TX, Michael Morrissey of MA and great grandchildren, Chelsea Brown of PA and Taya Brown of PA. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Henry Hall (Hank). She will be truly missed by Hank’s son Steve Hall of RI, his wife Shirley, and their daughter Sarah Hall.

Mom, you had it all! Beauty, artistic talent, a great sense of humor, an amazing green thumb, ability to sew like a professional seamstress, and cook like a chef, actually you had a wonderful life! In life we loved you dearly, in death we still love you and always will. In our hearts you hold a place no one else will ever fill. And, till that day, when it’s my time, I will see you again.

Memorial service will be a private ceremony. The Klee Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Inc., Shillington, is assisting the Hall family. www.kleefuneralhome.com

Teri was a beautiful person inside and out. It was a pleasure and honor to know her. Teri was smart, talented, and kind. She and my Father-in-law had many happy years together. My family was blessed to be able to share many happy times and memories with her.

I only met you a few times, but you were so kind to me. I know how well you raised your daughter Bonnie because she is an amazing person as her daughter is also. Sending love and light to the whole family. Kimmy

It’s hard to pick a single favorite memory of Teri---there are so many small memories that combine to form an overall memory of who she was as a person. I remember her love for the piano and how she inspired me to start playing which I did for many years. I was in awe when she showed me her beautiful artwork and gardening and special treasures around her house. I remember her elegant yet progressive sense of style and her musical laugh. She was a beautiful, fun loving person. I think the thing that sticks with me the most is the way she looked at me with genuine interest when I (a small child at the time) would tell a story or ask questions. Not many adults do that and it’s something I’ll never forget about her. She really truly cared and loved with all her heart. I’ll always treasure her memory and feel lucky to have known her.

I first met Terri when her family was celebrating her birthday in February 2012. She was dressed so beautifully and we hit it off talking about her family and upbringing. She loved going out to hear live music. Every time I saw her she was impeccably dressed, nails done . The perfect lady. She was a beautiful woman with a beautiful soul. and a sense of humor. Rest In Peace dear friend.

Hey mom.....This is your Belinda. Our lives had so many similarities we always commented on that. From our artistic pursuits to even our marriages, you had two girls, I had two boys, much to my surprise! Yin-Yang. Still simular! You even bequeathed your job at Vernon to me. I hope I did good job filling your shoes. I was told they were "big shoes". From a child, asking you for chocolate milk at late hours at night, to being there for me when I really need you, you were always there for me. I will always miss, love and remember you with fondest thoughts. You are and will always be " The Best" Love You❣

Hey Mom! This is your Belinda.... We had so many parts of our lives that were identical, intertwined in so many ways. Both artists, both with very simular paths in life from art, to our marriages. You had two girls, I had to my much surprise, two boys. Our lives were so similar, we always commented on that! I even was bequeath a very special job when you retired. Your job of 30 years at Vernon. Big shoes to fill. I hope I did you justice. From childhood, asking you for chocolate milk at late hours of the night, to being there countless times when I really need you, you were there for me. Thank you, can I say it any better than..... You are the BEST❣Always, Love you.

What a mother in law. It's not often you can say that. Classy, elegant, talented and loved life and her daughters and grandchildren. She loved nature, especially birds and a good cocktail. She welcomed me into her family with open arms. I'm grateful she lived with us for a couple of years. I loved her as much as my own mother.

Terri was a wonderful, beautiful woman! Her sweet smile and personality will be missed! Looking forward to a reunion heaven.

Teri "Grandma" Hall will always be remembered for her warm and kind heart. She always lit up the room with her smile and I'm thankful my wife and children got a chance to meet and know my grandmother. Her kindness was only matched by her wit and intelligence; the conversations we had will always be cherished.

Teri Hall was such a sweet lady. She had many interests during her lifetime. She could tell many stories about her Finnish background. The Lord blessed her with many years of life here on earth before He took her home to her eternal resting place! She will be missed! 💕

A grand , elegant lady who could charm the socks off a rat if they wore them with her wit and charm

My dear Terri. For the short time that I got to know you I feel as I have known you for my lifetime. You were an amazing and very intelligent and wonderful woman. You were so interesting and fun to be around and I loved hearing all of your stories and adventures. I will never forget all of the good times and heartfelt talks that we had over the years. Your memory will always live on in my heart. I looked at you as my “adopted” mom and Bonnie is my sister. Thank you for making me feel so loved and I will see you again some day and we will have our special drink! Love you!!

Even though I only knew Teri in her latter years, I was always impressed by her cheerful spirit. I enjoyed our conversations.

Terry was always upbeat and cheerful when I visited her. She was interesting to talk to. I would sometimes bring her little treats, mainly chocolate. We had that in common. I’m sorry that I haven’t seen her lately.

She was my mommy, she was my friend, she became like my child as I cared for her for 10 years in her later years, and it was a privilege and a blessing. I prayed with her when she accepted the Lord Jesus Christ and I am going to be with her again someday. So many friends of mine said of her when they met her that she was a great "lady" and so she was.
