Visitation will be held Friday, July 15, 2016, from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. at Groesbeck Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 A.M. on Saturday, July 16, 2016 in the Groesbeck Funeral Home Chapel. Reverend Michael Nemec of Christ Lutheran Church of Hillsboro and Reverend Dr. Ray Ballmann of Word of Truth Lutheran Church of Glen Rose will officiate, and Rebecca Fisher will be the pianist. Burial will follow in Faulkenberry Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Leslie Keys, Jack Mauldin, Buster Horn, Judge Daniel Burkeen, Tom Fisher, and David Mason. The Home-School children of Tri-County Christian Home Educators will be honorary pallbearers. Debbe was born November 3, 1960 in Mexia to Jerry Coleman and Vernell Sue Lenamond Coleman Lown. She grew up in Groesbeck and Thornton, graduating from Groesbeck High School in the Class of 1979, where she had participated in the GHS Band. Debbe lived with her father and step-mother, Jerry and Linda Coleman, during her junior year of high school and attended school in Joshua. There she met Joel Dan Hall, a senior in Joshua High. They remained sweethearts after she moved back to Groesbeck for her senior year. The following year, Debbe and Joel were united in marriage, on May 10, 1980, at the home of Joel’s parents in Joshua. Debbe and Joel lived in Joshua a couple of years, moved to Stephenville while he was in college there, and lived in College Station while he earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. After many more moves during Joel’s career as a DVM, they made their move to rural Groesbeck/Thornton in May 1998. Debbe probably never had a wasted minute in her life, with six children. She home-schooled all six children, with all doing really well in their achievements, and her fifth child graduating this May. With the other children in their home-school co-op, Debbe had frequent interaction with other children, many of whom called her Momma Hall. She treated them like her own children, because she truly cared. She was very active in all co-op activities, including stage productions, where there were many trips to Mexia and Fairfield, and lots of work in making costumes and operating lighting. Debbe also found time to volunteer with the Friends of the Maffett Memorial Library and the Friends of the Confederate Reunion Grounds. She was active in the 4-H “Limestone Leaders,” with her children participating in archery, air-rifle shooting, photography, showing horses, and foods. Debbe was a member of the Faith Lutheran Church in Mexia, and devoted time serving as the Secretary of the Church Council. Debbe loved gardening and enjoyed canning with some of her friends. Her work ethic might have come from helping her step-father, Barnett Lown, while she was growing up, with fencing and cattle work, but mainly she had an intense desire to do her best for her family. She was a loving wife and mother. Debbe was a joyful person, and would tell you her joy was from knowing Christ. Debbe was preceded in death by her father-in-law, Bob Lee Hall; father, Jerry Coleman; and her step-father, Barnett Lown. She is survived by her husband, Joel Dan Hall of Groesbeck; son and daughter-in-law, Micah and Courtney Hall of Lafayette, LA; son and daughter-in-law, Caleb and Destiny Hall of Granbury and grandson, Liam Hall; son and daughter-in-law, Nathan and Nina Hall of Mexia; son, Isaac Hall of Groesbeck; daughter, Hannah Hall of Groesbeck; and daughter, Sarah Hall of Groesbeck. She also leaves behind her mother, Sue Lown of Groesbeck; sister, Lea Farmer of Teague and her three children and their families: Dusty and Jennifer Newsom of Teague and their children, Eathan Goff, Terry Reel, Braydon Newsom, Ty Newsom, and Gage Newsom; Jessica and Timothy Hall of Teague, and their children, Madison Barnett, Si Howle, Hunter Hall, and Avrie Hall; and Haley Newsom of Teague and her children, Mahala Newsom and Eli Newsom. Additionally, her sister and brother-in-law, Lori and Shonn Rather of Thornton and their children Kendall King and Reagan Rather; her brother, Eric Coleman of Waco, and step-mother, Linda Colemen of McGregor; mother-in-law, Mrs. Bob Lee Hall of Joshua; and aunts, uncles, cousins, and other extended family.
