Sally Jane (Jane) Gleason Hall, age 92, of Pulaski, Va. died Saturday morning, July 5, 2014 in Highland Ridge Rehabilitation Center in Dublin, Va.

Jane was a resident of Commonwealth Assisted Living in Radford, Va., having moved there in February. Prior to that, she lived in Pulaski, Va. and Roanoke, Va. She was born June 18, 1922 in Pulaski County, Va. and was the daughter of the late Robert Emmett Gleason and Dora Smith Gleason.

The youngest of 10 children, she grew up in a log house at the base of Draper Mountain, and recalled days during the great depression when all they had to eat were huckleberries that she and her mother and siblings picked on the mountainside. In January 1943 she married John Melvin Hall of Pulaski, Va., who was home on leave from the Army at the time. She was widowed in 1991, when he unexpectedly died.

She is survived by two sons, Ronald Bruce Hall and his wife, Linda, of Pulaski, Va., John Bland Hall and his wife, Dana, of Heathsville, Va.; two daughters, Brenda Hall Thacker and her husband, David, of Waynesboro, Va. and Elizabeth Ann Hall Hu and her husband, Stanley, of Davidsonville, Md.; a sister, Elizabeth Dilorenzo of Garden City, N.Y.; seven grandchildren, David Hall, Stuart Hall, Kimberly Leininger, Robin Turner, Isabel Hall, Lydia Hu and Andrew Hu, along with 18 great-grandchildren.
