Hall, Lois F., sister of Laura Whitaker, passed away March 1995. She had a Master's degree in art and as associate professor of art at Pasadena College, Calf. for 5 years. Their Kalloch line descends down from Finley, Alex II and Rev. Amariah Kalloch.

Hall, Glenn Karl, Glenn Karl Hall died February 14th at the age of 98.  Born and raised in Thornwood, Washington, he was the fifth of ten children born to Lyman and Elena (Kalloch) Hall.  He attended Sedro-Woolley schools and graduated from Sedro- Woolley high school in 1927.  He graduated from Washington State University in 1931 and began teaching in the Sedro-Woolley school district in 1934.  He taught physics and chemistry and served as the senior class advisor and stage manager.  He retired in 1970.  He married Winnifred Irene Steward Hall, another Sedro-Woolley school teacher, in 1942 and they were married 58 years when she died in 1998.  He was a member of the Presbyterian church of Sedro-Woolley and Trinity United Presbyterian Church over 65 years.  He was active in the Sedro-Woolley Lions Club and had recently been awarded a pin for 70 years of service.  In 2004 he was inducted into the Sedro Woolley School District, Hall of Fame. In retirement he traveled widely in Europe, Asia and Africa. He was an avid gardener and kept up with old students by attending class reunions.  He was preceded in death by his parents and his nine brothers and sisters: Harvey, Lewis, Kal, Nada, Bill, Walter, Mary, Elsie and Myrtle.  He is survived by his two sons and daughters-in-law Robert and Sharon Hall of Woodside, California and Larry and Sandra Hall of Sedro-Woolley, and many nieces and nephews.  A memorial service will be held at the United Trinity Presbyterian Church on Monday, Feb. 18 at 11 a.m.  Donations in his memory may be made to Sedro-Woolley Lions Club, SWHS Alumni Association or the charity of your choice.  Journal ed. note: Pastor Wendy Tingley reminded us at Glenn's memorial service that Glenn Hall touched hundreds of lives here in his home town, where he lived for all but about four of his 98 years.  We might go even further and assert that Glenn touched more lives than just about anyone who has lived here.  Many attested to his influence as a teacher, as a mentor to students and young people in general, his strawberry patch where two generations of local folks worked and his 70 years of service to the Lions Club, an amazing record all by itself.  We interviewed Glenn over a period of 15 years and he helped us so much in sorting out the many people and places in the Prairie district where he grew up near Cranberry Lake.  In the future we will profile his extended family, especially his mother's side of the Kalloch family.  In that group, Amariah Kalloch dug out the genesis of Hwy. 9, which was called Kalloch Road in the mud and dirt days.  And Isaac S. Kalloch was one of the most famous San Francisco mayors 120 years ago, after starting his career in Boston as an abolitionist preacher.  We welcome readers' memories and photos of this fine man.  (From Skait River Journal).  (Photo).
