June Hall

December 6, 1930 — October 10, 2022

Barbara June Hall, a long time Odessa resident met her Lord and Savior on Monday, October 10, 2022, in San Antonio, TX.

She is survived by her sons, Bryan and wife Carolyn of Flower Mound, TX, Greg Hall of Nashville, TN, and Lance Hall of Taylor, TX; 6 grandchildren, Kannon, Baylor, Davis, Emily, Steven and Justin; and 1 great-grandchild, Lylah.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Vernon Leroy Hall; brothers, Roy and Johnny Allison; and 2 stepsons, Steve Hall and Mike Hall.

“June” was born on December 6, 1930, in Georgetown, KY, to Roy and Virginia Allison.  Her father Roy was a civil engineer and her mother, a homemaker.  The family moved often as construction projects would dictate where her father worked.  After living in California with her brother Roy Jr. and sister-in-law Nancy, she moved to El Paso, TX, to pursue a job at El Paso Gas.  In El Paso, she met Vernon Hall, who worked for Chevron Pipeline.  The two married in El Paso, and after a short stint in Snyder, TX, they moved to Odessa in 1964.

Unsure of what career might unfold, she was convinced by her sister-in-law, Margie Greene, to open a small day-care center out of her home.  Her reputation as a natural caregiver grew quickly and that small day-care center blossomed into a well-oiled machine, managing 30+ kids in a concert of multiple daily school shuttles, swimming lessons and untold outside activities, all orchestrated from a modest home with a converted garage.  Her reach was immense as she cared for multiple generations of children during her near 40 years of service.

It was the move to Odessa that spawned her love for Permian Football, and it didn’t take long.  When they arrived in Odessa, Permian was on the doorstep of their 1st state title in ‘65.  JuneBug was immediately hooked.  She would mold her boys into little MOJO fanatics and the family would travel religiously to road playoff games.  All 3 of the boys would play for Permian and Lance’s senior team was even the subject of a famous book you may have heard of.  Her love of the team never diminished, and she followed them faithfully into her golden years.  A close second was her passion for Kentucky Wildcat basketball.

During the boy’s younger years, the family enjoyed RV camping at the many lakes and state parks in Texas.  This hobby eventually led to the family acquiring a get-away on Lake Spence in Robert Lee, TX.  The family enjoyed countless weekends for years and years at “The Lake”.  During this time, the Grandkids began appearing and Kannon, Baylor, Davis and Emily became JuneBug’s passion.  It was at “The Lake” that she enjoyed them most and loved spending time on the boat and making sure they had their life jackets on and were pasted with sunscreen.  Nights were spent laughing around the campfire after one of her fantastic meals.  She was in heaven.

June was a devoted Christian and an active and very involved member of the First Christian Church for decades.  She served in many capacities, including church treasurer.  Her boys were baptized in the church, and she was very close to all the pastors that served during that time.  She was also a long-time member of the church choir and a Medical Center Hospital Auxiliary volunteer for years.

June was never afraid of dying because through her faith, she knew what awaited her.  She often said in her later years that she told God she was on his time and ready when he was.  It is comforting to know that she is enjoying that eternal peace now.
