Obituary of Margery B. H. English
In Loving Memory of Margery English
Margery English, a pillar of love and strength, passed away peacefully on November 9, 2023. She leaves behind a legacy of warmth, kindness, and boundless love that will forever be cherished by those who were fortunate enough to know her.
Born on June 10, 1927, Margery lived a life marked by compassion, resilience, and an unwavering devotion to her family.
Margery was the heart of her family, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her nurturing spirit touched the lives of everyone around her, creating a home filled with joy and harmony. Her delicious family recipes, warm generosity, words of wisdom, sharp wit, and prowess at Scrabble were constants that will be deeply missed.
A woman of faith, Margery found solace and strength in her beliefs, which guided her through life's many challenges with grace and poise. Her generosity knew no bounds, and she donated regularly to causes that moved her, always extending a helping hand to those in need.
Margery's greatest joy was her family. She reveled in the laughter of her grandchildren and the boundless energy of her great-grandchildren. Her cabin at Whitney lake was a haven for gatherings, celebrations, and the creation of lifelong memories.
She is survived by children William Macalister Hall II, West Jordan, UT and Nancy Hall Johnson, Middletown, PA; daughter-in-law Judith Anne Hall (nee Kauffman), Conshohocken, PA; stepchild Richard H. English (Mildred), Kennersville, NC, 9 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren.
She is predeceased by husbands Herbert Douglas Hall II in 1983 and James T. English in 2002, and children Susan Hall Pickett in 1998, Herbert Douglas Hall III in 2002, and Thomas Martin Hall in 2009.
Although Margery may have left this world, her love will continue to live on in the hearts of those who were blessed to know her.
A celebration of Margery's life will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, November 18, 2023 at St Thomas Church, Whitemarsh. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made to the Salvation Army of Philadelphia, St Thomas Church, or Masonic Charities in Margery's honor.
May her soul rest in eternal peace, and may her memory be a source of comfort and inspiration to all who mourn her passing.
