Grace Delores Hall, 88, Wausau, was born again into eternal life Saturday, October 6, 2018 at North Central Health Care, Wausau.
Grace was born October 31, 1929 in Wausau to the late William and Martha (Moll) Gumz. Throughout her life, she worked hard to support her family instilling this work ethic in her children.
For Grace, the two most important aspects in her life were family and her faith. She was a very loving mother and grandmother who looked forward to Christmas every year opening presents with family. Highland Community Church was her church home and drew strength from her faith and the relationships with friends at HCC. Grace’s radiant smile and laughter were common during her get-togethers with friends for coffee and cookies. Her friends often referred to her as “Amazing Grace” because God gave her Amazing Grace to go with her feisty nature. In her free time, Grace loved listening to music; especially classic country-western and the Sunday morning polkas on the radio.
Grace is survived by her children, Allen V. Stark of Bay City, MI, Donald D. (Sherry) Stark of Sun City, AZ and Mary E. (Jon) Kittel of Kronenwetter; granddaughters, Elizabeth (Ron) Gardner of Averill Park, NY and Rachel (Robert) Coryell of Bad Axe, MI; great-grandson, Logan Stark; and extended family and friends. She is preceded in death by her husband, William Hall; and ex-husbands, Victor Stark, Ray Wesenick and Walter Polly.
The funeral service for Grace will be at 11:00 AM on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at Highland Community Church, Wausau Campus. Pastor Isaiah Demoss will officiate. Visitation will be from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM at Helke Funeral Home on Wednesday, October 10; resuming on Thursday at 10:00 AM until the time of service at the church. The committal will follow at Pine Grove Cemetery. Helke Funeral Home is assisting the family with the arrangements; you may sign our family guestbook at helke.com.
Sincere appreciation goes to the nurses and staff of NCHC Lake View Heights and to the pastors and congregation of Highland Community Church for their years of fellowship and faith.
