JONESPORT – Carol E. Hall, 60, died Jan. 3, 2013, at a Bangor health care facility after bravely fighting complications from diabetes and cancer. She was born Jan. 16, 1952, in St. Georges, Bermuda, the daughter of Clayton and Carolyn (Clark) Dudley.
After her father’s retirement from the U.S. Navy the family returned home to Pembroke. There Carol completed her education and graduated from Pembroke High School, class of 1970. While residing in Pembroke Carol was an active member of Peoples United Methodist Church, having served as Sunday school teacher, choir member, participated in church guild sales and was church treasurer for many years. She was also treasurer of Pembroke Alumni Association, former treasurer of Pembroke Trotting Association, and former treasurer and member of Pembroke Fourth of July Committee. Carol was employed by the U.S.D.A., rural housing and development, in the Calais office, and retired from the Machias office after 24 years of service. On Aug. 10, 1996, she married Frank “Peter” Hall of Machias. They later became residents of Jonesport, where Carol enjoyed operating “Hall’s Cottages” for several seasons. Carol was an avid reader, had enjoyed doing crafts and loved the salt sea air; even the fog. She was very pleased to have recently been received into membership at Sawyer Memorial Congregational Church, Jonesport.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her sister, Linda Church of Pembroke; her brother, James Dudley and wife, Florence, of Edmunds; two stepchildren, Aaron Hall of Revere, Mass., and Elizabeth Viani and husband, Michael, of Charleston; three grandchildren, Jaeden, Julia and Brogan Viani; nephews, Michael Church of Las Vegas and Peter Mahar II of Winslow; nieces, Andrea Mahar of Bangor, Melissa McLean of Calais and Tabitha Emery of North New Portland; many great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins.
