Claude McKenley “C.M.” Hall, of Kosse, passed away on Thursday, September 18, 2014, at Windsor Healthcare Residence, at age 86. Funeral services were held at 2:00 P.M. on Sunday, September 21, 2014 at the First Baptist Church of Kosse, with Reverend Jack Wren officiating. Mr. Hall was to be interred on Monday, September 22 at 10:00 A.M. in the Forest Park East Cemetery in Webster beside his first wife, Edith Hall. Claude was born August 23, 1928 to Claude M. and Mary (Wallace) Hall in Kosse, Texas, and attended school there until leaving Kosse when he was 16. Claude and his first wife Edith lived in Sante Fe, and he had worked for Union Carbide as a supervisor in Texas City until his retirement. He was a caregiver for his wife, Edith during her health problems before she passed away. Claude was re-united with one of his school-days friends from Kosse, Ms. Sally Mitchell after he lost his wife. She had also been a widow, having lost her husband John Henry Mitchell eighteen years earlier. One day when she came in from one of her walks, he was in her driveway. He got out of the car, came in for tea, and they started talking, and never stopped. After visiting and talking for several months (and she always made him go home at 10:00 PM), they were married on October 28, 2000 in Kosse, and had fourteen wonderful years together. C.M. and Sally truly enjoyed each other’s company and were a precious loving couple. He was also a wonderful caregiver for Sally (whom he would call “Mrs. Hall”) for the past five years until his health problems became more serious and they moved to Windsor Healthcare the past three months. Claude was a member of the First Baptist Church of Kosse and served as Deacon. Claude was preceded in death by his parents and wife Edith, a brother, James Hall, and also by his daughter, Sue Hall Dampman and son, Phillip Hall. He is survived by his wife, Sally Hall of Kosse; son and daughter-in-law, Jimmy M. and Sharon Hall and grandson Alex Hall of Galveston; son-in-law, David Dampman of Texas City; granddaughter, Laynie Conner and Great Grandchildren, Addyson and Kinley Conner of Pearland; grandchildren, Wade Hall, Shane Hall, and Traycie Hall; and his step-daughters, (Sally’s daughters), Linda Mitchell and husband David of Dayton, Brenda Savell and husband Mike of Hilltop Lake, and Barbara Boren and husband Ray of Kosse. He is also survived by his brother Willis Hall of Tyler and sister, Mary Hall of Hearne.
