The heavenly choir welcomed a new member on Tuesday, July 16, 2019, when Charlotte Mae Hall, 86, went to be with her Savior Jesus Christ. She was a long-time resident of Meeker.

Charlotte was born on Aug. 4, 1932, the second of six children, to Floyd and Ethel (Smith) Cook in Shawnee.

Charlotte worked as a secretary and retired from the State of Oklahoma in 1994. She was a graduate of Dale High School.

Charlotte married Eddie Hall of Meeker on Nov. 14, 1952, and they were married for 66 years.

Since early childhood, Charlotte was blessed with musical talent, playing the piano and organ and sharing her sweet voice at church. Her service to God began as a member of Hazel Dell Baptist Church and then Mammoth Baptist Church, where she was church organist for many years.

Charlotte’s family was the joy of her life, and she was their steadfast anchor in times of celebration or sorrow. She was known as “Gee” to her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, or others who joined her circle of care. There was always an extra place at her table for anyone needing a meal or a word of advice (no charge for either!).

She and Eddie shared their interest in horses and rodeos. She was the Meeker Rodeo Queen from 1953-57. They regularly attended the rodeo finals and timed events at the Lazy E Arena in Guthrie. In their horse-drawn buggy, Eddie and Charlotte were a familiar sight at Meeker parades.

Charlotte was preceded in death by her parents, Floyd and Ethel Cook; one sister, Phyllis Cook; and several other family members.

She is survived by husband, R.E. (Eddie) Hall, of the home; son, Gary Hall and wife, Juanita, Meeker; daughters Brenda Hutchison, Meeker; and Regina Holland and husband, Bryan, of Eufaula, brothers, Wayman Cook and wife, Linda, Shawnee; Warren Cook and wife, Barbara, Claremore; sisters Carolyn Stuart, San Benito, Texas; and Leda Glenn and husband, Dennis, Shawnee; five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, along with many other relatives and friends.

Visitation will be Friday night, July 19, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Parks Brothers funeral chapel in Meeker where the family will receive visitors.

Funeral services will be at 2 p.m., Saturday, July 20, at Mammoth Baptist Church in Meeker with Pastor Mike Hazelwood officiating. Burial will follow at Rossville Cemetery, Meeker.
