Susan Hall

Susan Elaine Booher Hall
September 9, 1960 - February 29, 2024
 

My sweet angel slipped away to Jesus on Thursday, February 29, 2024 at 3:00pm.
  
Words cannot express the brightness of the light that she brought into this world and into my life for nearly 45 years. Her smile. Her laugh. Her wit. Her sarcasm. Her ability to “tell it like it is”. Her generosity - oh her generosity.
  
She married me - Larry Robert Hall - on May 31, 1980. It was a marriage and love for the ages. Through our ups and downs, our struggles and our triumphs, she remained steady, full of love and optimism. Even at the end she remained steadfast. With a diagnosis just a short four months before that left little earthly room for hope, she faced the days with unfathomable courage and confidence that she would be healed - whether here on earth or in our Savior’s arms.

 

Born in Brown County, Indiana and raised in Nashville, Indiana, Susan was the big sister to four younger brothers. She was and will always be the hub around which the spokes of her family revolved. She was their queen and they will miss her deeply.

 

Susan graduated from Brown County High School in 1978. She graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree from Austin Peay University in 1998.

 

She loved teaching children and did so at various churches for years. Hundreds of lives were influenced for Christ. Her legacy continues as I still hear from former students who sing her praises as a teacher 20 years later.

 

She loved being an entrepreneur. In 2002, we partnered to create Energym Music - a gymnastics music production company. While I created the music, she did the marketing, the trade shows, the accounting, the consulting and she reveled in every minute of it. We loved taking long drives where we would talk for hours, plotting our next business move or our next remodeling scheme on our house.

 

She loved being an aunt! Her email address started with “auntsusanelaine”. With 18 nieces and nephews between our two families, she strove to forge lasting bonds with each of them. She took them on vacations, spoiled them terribly with Christmas and birthday gifts, and did her best to stay in touch even as they became adults with their own children. She “loved them with love” as she would always say. Especially dear to her heart was her nephew Mak Booher, whom she helped raise and educate when he came to Tennessee to live with his father just down the street from us.

 

She loved vacations. Even when we couldn’t afford them, we managed to go and see things and do things. Sometimes she brought parents or nieces and nephews and gave them wonderful experiences.

 

She loved to laugh. Her laugh still resonates in the ears of anyone who spent time around her. Her smile brightened every room. Her wit permeated every conversation. Her intelligence challenged me to do my homework. She loved to tell stories. She would be the first to admit to “putting a little hair on the dog”, but only to make it a good story.

 

She loved her parents and brothers. With ferocious, lioness love. She equally loved my parents and siblings.

 

She loved me. The last words I heard her say were “I love you so much”. And I loved her as much as any man has ever loved a woman. I loved her with love.

 

She was preceded in death by her Uncle Dennis Booher, her Aunt Patricia Booher, and her Aunt Mary Ann Moreno - who was very dear to her - and her father-in-law Robert Hall, and brother-in-law, Jay Gildersleeve. 

 

She is survived by her parents, Lee Webster Booher and Phyllis Ann Booher of Bloomington, IN, her brothers Tim (Linda) Booher of Indianapolis, IN, Patrick (Holly) Booher of Greenwood, IN, Grant (Shannon) Booher of Gulf Shores, AL, and Michael (Erin) Booher of Bloomington, IN, and her mother-in-law Betty Hall of Bismarck, IL.

 

Sister-in-laws Nancy (Gary) Gray, Sue (Jeff Woolard) Gildersleeve, Marcia (Rex) Kibler and brother-in-law Daniel (Sabina) Hall.

 

Nieces and nephews Zachary (Jordin) Booher, Hannah (Nick) Kiehl, Madisson (Dalton) Lowry, Morgan (Holyn) Booher, Maggie (Zane) Cockrum, Maxwell Booher, Nicholas Booher, Phenix Whitby, and Bianca Booher.

 

She equally loved my nieces and nephews. Amanda (Todd) Nardoni, Joel (Sarah) Gray, Jodi (Grant) Hoke, Jennifer Gildersleeve, Jared Kibler, Jacob (Annie) Kibler, Nathan (Theresa) Kibler, Adam Hall and Sherene Hall.
