   Marilyn Hall, age 76, of Brandon, FL, formerly of  Lake View, IA, passed away at Ava Cares Hospice House in Brandon.  Marilyn was born on April 20, 1941, in Portland, OR to Robert and Erville (Threlkeld) Pettinger.  When she was two years old the family moved to Chariton, IA. Marilyn was a graduate of Chariton High School.

   On May 12, 1958, Marilyn was united in marriage to Dean Hall.  They made their home in Lake View where Dean worked for the DNR.  Together they raised their three children: Bob, Jim, and Lori.  She worked as a cook in the Lake View School system for many years.

   Marilyn was a devoted and loving wife, cherished her three children, grandmother to eight beautiful grandchildren, adoring great-grandmother of nine, and doting great-great grandmother of two beautiful babies.  She also enjoyed the honor of being a big sister, an aunt and great-aunt to many nieces and nephews. 

   Marilyn enjoyed being outdoors, gardening, tending her flower beds, and camping with her family.  When she was a child she was a 4H member, and learned many of her talents through her 4H Club activities.  She was an excellent cook, and loved baking.  She also liked to read, watch Jeopardy, and do crossword puzzles.  Marilyn believed in giving to others and demonstrated that through her many years of donating blood.  She was a member of the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Lake View and a member of the Women’s Auxiliary. 

   Marilyn moved to Florida in September 2015 to be closer to her daughter.  She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.  Survivors include her children: Jim Hall of Ogden, IA and Lori Auen of Brandon, FL; her grandchildren: Kari Stewart, Robbie Hall, Julie Hall, Amanda Hall, Layla Rysavy, Jacob Hall, Joshua Auen, and Alexandrea Auen; nine great-grandsons; and two great-great granddaughters.  Other survivors include her brothers: Jerry Pettinger of Russell, IA, Tom (Sue) Pettinger of Benson, AZ, and Nick Pettinger as well as many nieces, nephews, and extended family members and friends.

     Marilyn was preceded in death by her parents; husband Dean, and son Bob.
