Heaven gained another angel on Tuesday, September 22, 2020, when Linda Sue Sisk Hall, 70, of Warrenton, passed away peacefully at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Fairfax.
Linda was born in Warrenton on February 23, 1950, to the late Alan Randolph Sisk and Annie Belle Pullen.
She graduated from Fauquier High School in 1968 and married her sweetheart, Allen Douglas Hall, in 1969 at Long Branch Baptist Church in Halfway. They welcomed their first daughter, Melissa “Missy,” in 1974 and another, Michelle, in 1977.
Linda spent her early working years waitressing in Fauquier County and working for the National Education Association in Washington, D.C. She eventually went to work in and retired from the medical field.
Linda never met a stranger. If she met you once, you were her friend or she was your adopted mom for life. She loved talking with people, not only in person, but also via letters, phone and Facebook.
Because Linda’s parents both died when they were 49, she thought she’d hit the lottery when she turned 50 and again each year when she had a birthday. Losing her parents at a young age instilled in Linda an intense desire to hold family and friends close, love them hard and defend them with every fiber in her being.
Survivors include her husband, Allen Douglas Hall, of Warrenton; daughters, Michelle Renee Hall Graham (Ritchie) of Culpeper and Melissa (Missy) Ann Hall Sutton (Darin) of Gainesville; a grandson, Dalton Douglas Graham of Culpeper; her brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, as well as her nieces and nephews in the Hall family; her Pullen, Sisk and Rutherford cousins (some of whom were more like brothers and sisters); her “adopted” kids (lifelong friends of Michelle and Melissa’s from Fauquier County Public Schools and Radford University), and good friends including, Jane Dawson, Joyce Davis and Judy Corcoran.
Linda’s family thanks everyone for their thoughts, prayers and offers of assistance and is rejoicing in the fact she is home with the Lord as well as her parents and is no longer in discomfort and pain. She was a fighter until the very end.
The family is also grateful to all the doctors, nurses and other medical personnel – especially those at Inova Fairfax Hospital – who have treated her since her serious health issues started in 2003.
A viewing for family and friends will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, September 28, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, September 29, in Hillcrest Memory Gardens, 4160 Rixeyville Road, Jeffersonton. COVID precautions will be in place at both the viewing and service. Masks, hand sanitizer and social distancing will be required.
Memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association or Inova Fairfax Heart and Vascular Center.
