Memorial services for Loma Linda University Medical Center volunteer Ina G. Hall were held on Friday, December 29, 2006, at the Victoria Church of Seventh-day Adventists in Loma Linda.

Ms. Hall, who was born on May 2, 1900, volunteered at Loma Linda University Medical Center and at the Quiet Hour in Redlands until the age of 103.

Born in Pearl Lagoon, Nicaragua, to John and Mary Goldstein, Ms. Hall spent the first 81 years of her life in Nicaragua. She trained as a nurse and spent 44 years in that profession until retiring in 1962. She was active in the Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua, Seventh-day Adventist Church, where she served for many years as church treasurer.

Political upheavals in Nicaragua caused her to leave her home and travel to the United States at age 82. Moving to Loma Linda in 1992, Ms. Hall was embraced by the members of the Victoria Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Ms. Hall began volunteering at Loma Linda University Medical Center in 1992. She served nearly 3,000 hours in volunteer service at the Medical Center.

She enjoyed many hobbies including sewing, crocheting, reading, doing jigsaw puzzles, and travel. At age 100, she traveled to Niagara Falls.

Ms. Hall was married twice—first to Eddie Hodgson and, after his death, to Sylvester Hall, who also preceded her in death.
