Joan A Hall

November 19, 1952 ~ July 27, 2022 (age 69)


Joan Agnes Hall, 69, passed away peacefully on July 27th, 2022, at her home in Grangeville, ID.

The 6th of 9 children, Joan was born on November 19th, 1952, in Cottonwood, Idaho to Cletus and Agnes Wemhoff. Joan attended St. Joseph’s Grade School and St. Gertrude’s Academy; graduating in 1971 in the inaugural class from Prairie High School, Home of the Pirates. She went on to attend Carroll College in Helena, Mont. until 1973 when her future husband lured her back to the prairie.

Joan married Marvin on August 4th, 1973 in Cottonwood, ID and have resided in the Grangeville community ever since. They had three sons; Ryan, Chancey and Tyler.

She spent most of her professional career serving the residents of Idaho County; most notably in the treasurer's office but also with the assessor’s office and district court in the latter years. Joan retired from Bettie’s Floor and Decor in 2019.

Joan was devoted to her Catholic faith and the Sts. Peter and Paul Parish community. Coming from a large family and raising three children; family was a priority to her, bringing much joy and fulfillment.

She was a social creature, never one to be idle. Always a group to engage with; from the parish to quilt clubs, book clubs, attending theater, volunteer board positions, crafting with neighbors; Joan was always on the move building a devout network of friends along the way. Joan cherished these friendships, each one holding a special place in her heart, carrying her through the most difficult time of her life.

Her passion was sewing. Never some needle-work or a quilt project far out of reach, she took pleasure in tackling challenging patterns and vying for purple ribbons at the Idaho County Fair. Should you own one of her pieces, please treasure it and know it was made with so much love and joy.

Joan is survived by her sons Tyler (Gillian Stone) Hall of Billings, Mont. and Ryan (Jodi) Hall of Coeur D’Alene, Idaho; her sister, Sist. Placida Wemhoff of St. Gertrude’s Cottonwood, Idaho; her brother, Larry (Norma) Wemhoff of Winona, Idaho; her sister, Lois (John) Sonnen of Lewiston, Idaho; her brother Ed (Miki) Wemhoff of Cottonwood, Idaho; her sister Mary (John) O’Keif of Eugene, Ore.; her daughter-in-law, Randee Startin-Hall of Portland, Ore; Chonique Hall-Trujillo of Huntsville, Ala.; granddaughters, Skylar, Mekiah, Parker and Michael; her grandson Ranson, and great granddaughters Bentley and Everly.
