Doris Ella Hall-Seybold was born in Iowa on November 24, 1937 to Ellis and Hazel Adamson. She was raised in Pine River, Minnesota and is one of ten children. Doris was married at 18 years old to her sweetheart and the father of her children, Vernon Alden Hall, Sr. She was a strong supporter of her family and felt very blessed to be able to stay home and raise her children. As a mother, Doris spent countless hours in the kitchen cooking, canning, baking and freezing the fruits of her labor, not to mention dressing many chickens out! She enjoyed many years of volunteer work with the church teaching Sunday School, being a Girl and Boy Scout leader, sewing, knitting and summers at the cabin with her children. She managed the paperwork for the family auto business out of the home and when her children were grown, Doris returned to school, completing her high school education and earning a college certification in accounting. Doris lost her husband at the age of 48. She pursued many years in the accounting field, prior to retiring. She fully enjoyed many winters in the southern states and felt totally blessed to have had the opportunity to travel, something she never thought she’d be able to experience. Doris suffered the loss of two husbands later in life, Jerry Guenther and Gene Seybold. She was grateful for the joy they brought into her life and time spent with each of them. Despite the losses in her life, she remained so thankful to the Lord for the many things she had been blessed with.
She is survived by her children, Ella Leopold (Ed), Vernon Hall, Jr., Michael Hall (Terri), Kathy Borowick (Pat), Donna Marty (Harry); five siblings; and the remnants of pride and laughter caused by the pitter-patter of her many deeply loved grandchildren and great grandchildren. Doris was a woman of God who shared the promise of eternal life with all. She remained a daily prayer warrior for her family and friends until the day she received her crown.
