Rita Bernice Hall, 83, rural Logansport, passed away Monday, November 9, 2020, in Ascension St. Vincent Hospital.
Born at home on March 12, 1937, in the little Cass County town of Kenneth, Rita was the daughter of the late Rolla and Garnet (Kistler) Nethercutt.
Rita was a graduate of Royal Center High School.
On May 3, 1958, in Logansport, she was married to Jouett “Jack” Hall, who preceded her in death October 23, 2011.
Rita often recalled her first job working at the soda fountain at Kresge’s as one of her favorite memories. Later in life, she worked at General Tire and Switches.
Rita was a member of the Pisgah Christian Church. She and her husband loved to dance and had been members of the Bridge City Squares. Rita was an excellent seamstress who could sew just about anything. She loved crocheting and making dolls. Rita was always ready to go shopping or to a favorite restaurant. She especially loved to “go up north.” She enjoyed having the grandchildren spend the night and baking up all sorts of goodies for them to eat.
