Born on May 8, 1925 in Ray City, Georgia to Arnet and Dollie Mathis, she lived in Georgia until she married Army Air Corps Cadet Pilot Felton Hall on August 15th, 1942. She and Felton lived in Puerto Rico, Ohio, Florida, Louisiana and Michigan during Felton’s career as an Air Force officer. Katherine and Felton moved to Sarasota, Florida after Felton retired from the Air Force in 1964. Katherine pursued her own career at Jacobsen’s Department Store in Sarasota, where she worked for over 40 years. Katherine was many things: a model, an officer’s wife, a lady, a mother, a career fashion saleswoman, a grandmother and a great grandmother. She was best known for her signature colors of pink and lime green.
Katherine is survived by her son Billy Hall, of Shreveport, Louisiana; her daughter-in-law Shirley Hall, of Davenport, Florida; four grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Felton Hall, her son Jerry Hall, her grandson John Hall, her brother BJ Mathis, and her sister Opal Bosco née Mathis.
