Ruby Pauline Clark Hall
Mrs. Ruby Pauline Clark Hall, of Newport, Arkansas, departed this life on Sunday, August 3, 2014, at the age of 98. She was born May 27, 1916 in Cave City, Arkansas, the daughter of William Jackson “Will Jack” and Tillie Augusta Clark. On October 19, 1935, she married Mr. James Issac “Ike” Hall, and together they had 2 daughters, Pauline and Jane.
Her early years were hard, her family sharecropping many years. The depression days were very severe for Mrs. Hall and her family. There was no work for her Poppa, and often no food. She and her family caught fish, hunted squirrel and rabbit, and made a garden to survive. These hard years gave Mrs. Hall a strength and thirst for knowledge. She always wanted to learn and know how to do other things. When her older sister started school, Mrs. Hall studied right along with her. She learned enough that when she started school she stayed in the first grade only one day before being passed along to 2nd. Many times, her family would live several miles from school, and with no bus service, she would have to walk. Unfortunately, she did not get to finish her schooling for various reasons, but was self-taught. Mrs. Hall was known to have beautiful handwriting, and was so smart in everything. She had such a wonderful memory of so many things.
As a child, she and her family walked to the nearest church, as they had no car. Mrs. Hall has been a member of the First Baptist Church since May, 1948. She attended church regularly, riding with Mrs. Guthrie, who later died in a car accident. After she was unable to attend in person, she would watch on television.
She was extremely independent and proud, and kept a youthful look. Mrs. Hall loved when someone told her she didn’t look her age, which she never did. She always did her own hair, perms, colors, and cuts. Until she was 91 years old, she continued to mow her own yard, sharpening her mower blades every 2nd mow. She would also trim her hedges, rake leaves, pick up pecans, and prune her own trees. Mrs. Hall also climbed on top of her house to trim a tree or remove leaves, although she was eventually grounded from climbing the house! Mrs. Hall lived in her own home until April 12, 2014.
Mrs. Hall was healthy, only seeing the doctor once a year to have her blood pressure checked, and renew her prescription of 2 pills.
She worked so hard her entire life, working outside the home in addition to helping Ike with their trucking business. Mrs. Hall was very proud of her family, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren being her crowning glory.
Mrs. Hall was preceded in death by her husband, James Issac “Ike” Hall on December 9, 1980; her daughter Jane Freeman on September 13, 1999; a great-grandchild, James Eugene “Gene” Tharp on August 27, 2004; three sisters, Christine Mahan, Alberta Christian, and a sister who died at 14 months, Irene Clark; her brother, William “Junior” Clark; and her parents.
She is survived by one daughter, Pauline Hall Lamer of Newport, Arkansas; five grandchildren, James Eugene “Gene” Tharp of Monette, Jerry Alan Tharp of Newport, Jon LaFitte Shaw of Memphis, Tennessee, Teresa Huber of Texas, and Jack Freeman, III of Midletman, Texas; 12 great-grandchildren, and 6 great-great grandchildren.
