Mrs. Aurelia Mullins Hall

On the warm spring day of April 18, 2013, Aurelia Mullins Hall, responded to the gentle call of the God who created her, and joined those who had gone before her in heaven.

She was born April 15, 1912, in the Gowdsyeville township of Gaffney, South Carolina, and was one of eight children born to the marriage of the late George Washington and Ethel Lorena Vassy Mullins. Aurelia found it interesting that her birthdate coincided with the sinking of Titanic. She attended Cecil’s Business College in Spartanburg in 1929. Bookkeeping was a skill at which she excelled, and her talents were honed as she worked in the textile mills in South Carolina.

Even the depression would not slow her down, for she was never without a job.

A pastime that she thoroughly enjoyed was her love of crossword puzzles.

Aurelia made her way to Atlanta, employing her talents. After moving there, she was invited out by a good friend from church, the sister of her future husband, J.T. Hall. A year later, they were married.

J.T. presented her with the first of a beautiful collection of teapots she would acquire. They were married for 13 years, until his death in 1968.

In 1970 she began a long relationship with the owners of Williams Brothers. After moving to Newnan in 2000, she became a member of her sister’s church, Moreland First Baptist Church. Teaching Sunday school since she was 19 years old made her a perfect fit, and she gladly shared her extensive knowledge of the Bible with those in her classes at the church.

At the time of her passing, she was the oldest member of the church. The service to honor Mrs. Hall’s life will be on Monday, April 22, 2013, at 1 p.m. at Moreland First Baptist Church.

Friends of the family will be received by her nieces and nephews beginning at 12 p.m. at the church.

Interment will be at Westview Cemetery in Atlanta at 3 p.m. Those who may wish to do so may make memorial contributions in Mrs. Hall’s memory to Moreland First Baptist Church, 2930 South Highway 29 Moreland, GA 30259.
