“Life’s Reflection”

    Mable Waddell Jackson Hall was born on June 10, 1932 to Grace Smith Waddell and Calhoun Waddell in Darlington, South Carolina. She peacefully entered into eternal rest on Sunday, September 26, 2021 at her home surrounded by her family. 

    She was united in Holy Matrimony to the late Lawrence Hall of Darlington, South Carolina. She received her formal education in the Darlington Public School System graduating from Mayo High School in 1952. 

    Soon after graduation, she followed her siblings migrating to the north to find employment. She found work at the Lankenau Hospital in Philadelphia where she worked for many years before deciding to pursue a career in cosmetology. She furthered her education at the Apex Cosmetology School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania earning a license as a Beautician. Having an entrepreneurial spirit she established and opened a hair salon and a neighborhood corner grocery store. Although small it was a great beginning for a woman during the early seventies building stability for her family. 

    In 1967, Mother Hall joined and became a faithful member of the National Temple Baptist Church of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During her membership she faithfully served as a member of the Pastor’s Aid Club, the Deaconess Board, the Kitchen Aid Committee and a member of the Robinson Memorial Choir. She was also a member of the popular Rudy Yule Choral traveling throughout the tri state area spreading the gospel through song.   

    In 1990, Mother Hall returned to Darlington where she then became a member of Apostolic Faith Tabernacle (COOLJC). Soon after she was baptized in Jesus’ name and God filled her with the Holy Spirit. Mother Hall worked in the church under the leadership of the late Elder James Blair and Elder James Saulters who became Pastor in 2003. Mother Hall loved her family and church family. She also found purpose and enjoyed singing with Sister Janice Saulters as a choir member. She would often say, “I got to get to the church so we can hold up the blood stained banner”.

    During my mother’s illness as we communicate through prayer and song she would often say to me, “there’s no perfect journey through life.” I said to her, “Momma that statement should be coined as it is so true”.  Because she spoke those words so often, I decided to write a poem in her honor. 

   A perfect journey through life isn’t living at all. If you have a perfect journey you had it standing still. Even that doesn’t equal a perfect journey.  If you stand too still while trying to walk the straight and narrow, you’ll leave room for the buzzards to pick you from your place of grace.  Can you journey be without twist or turns, without scrapes or scars, without bumps in the road, and even a broken heart? If you chose not to love or reach out to those in need, your journey would be incomplete. A journey without storms keeps us far from God. We must walk through our storms and pray to come out on the other side with a closer relationship with God. There is no perfect journey through life.

    Mother Hall leaves to cherish her memory: five children:James Jackson, Sr. of Darlington, SC, Mack (Faye) Patterson of Philadelphia, PA, Gussie/Princess Jackson (Melvin) of Darlington, SC, Gladys Green of Darlington, SC and Hannah/Linda Jackson of Darlington, SC. One adoptive sister, Dorothy Spencer; three step-children: Leroy Jackson, Randy Jackson and Elaine Lightly; twelve grandchildren: James Jr., Pamela, Tiffany, Lisa, Christopher, Travis, Freddie Jr., Natalia, Marcus, Maurice, Brittney and Savannah; several great grandchildren; a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends who will truly miss her.

Please keep the members of the Jackson and Hall families in your thoughts and prayers.
