Marjorie ‘Corky’ Hall

| July 23, 2020

Marjorie “Corky” Hall, 91, passed away on Saturday, July 18, 2020. She was born in Coshocton on Dec. 7, 1928, to Ruby (Campbell) and Donald Groce.

Corky remained a life-long resident of Coshocton where she graduated from Coshocton High School, worked and raised her family. She had various jobs over the years, but most notably being the owner of the Newsstand on Main Street. She was also known well from working at Pretty Products and as a waitress at Andy’s restaurant. Her last “job” was more of a passion, doing alterations for many people in the community. She especially enjoyed helping brides and prom attenders make their dresses “just right.”

Corky loved sports. She was an avid golfer and bowler back in the day and enjoyed watching many sporting events. She attended Grace United Methodist Church and most recently Roscoe United Methodist. Her cornmeal mush was always a hit at bazaars. Corky had an exuberant personality and a servant’s heart. Her love of people, serving others and the Lord, working hard, and enjoying life are all traits she instilled in her family. We will be forever grateful for her and she will be missed terribly.

Corky is survived by her children, Pete (Nona) Hall, Sam Hall, Denny Hall, and Pidget (Kevin) Berry; grandchildren, Derek Hall, Lesley (Jordan) Runner and Corlee “Lexi” Hall; one great-granddaughter, Luna Runner; many cousins and nephews; and a very close friend Doris Smith.

Along with her parents, Corky is preceded in death by her husband Paul Hall and her two sisters Ellen (Bob) Ferne and Dorothy (Jack) Ames.

Per Corky’s wishes a cremation will take place and a graveside service will be held at South Lawn Cemetery of Coshocton on Friday, July 24 at 2 p.m. with Pastor Dale Sutton officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be directed to the Coshocton County Animal Shelter 21755 TR 164, Coshocton, OH 43812. The Miller Funeral Home is serving the family and an online memorial can be found at
