July 27, 1955 to September 12, 2018 Carol was born to George and Juanita Harris in Oxnard, California. Her family lived in California, Nevada, Oregon; and then Nevada again when she was 9. She finished her public education in Wells, Nevada. Carol graduated from the Nursing Program for LPNs at the junior college in Elko.
After graduation Carol worked at the William Bee Ririe Hospital here in Ely. On October 10, 1975, Carol Harris and Kenneth Hall were married. Carol left nursing to be a full-time mother to her children, Jeremiah and Kathleen. Ken’s job as a core driller for the mines kept the family moving frequently for quite a few years. Then Carol and Ken made the decision to make Ely their permanent home.
Carol kept the home together and supported her children in school and athletics. Carol was an active member of the Rebekahs for several years in Ely. Carol liked doing crafts, reading, watching TV programs or movies, rides over Success Loop, and camping. Carol adored her family especially her grandchildren. She and Ken attended their grandchildren’s school and sports activities.
Over the years, Carol held jobs outside the home. She sold Avon, worked as a store clerk, a home health aide, a guard at the entrance gate for a mine, and as the parts department manager for a trucking firm. She was the adamant caregiver looking after her mother-in-law and sister-in-law. When each of them eventually needed help with health issues, they had a former LPN to depend on.
After Ken’s passing she moved to Moscow, Idaho, to be closer to her sister. While living in Moscow, Carol became a member of the Red Hat Society. After about 5 years, Carol moved back to Ely. She had been back here less than a year at her passing.
Carol was preceded in death by both of her parents; her brother, John Harris; and her husband of 34 years, Kenneth Hall.
She is survived by her son, Jerry Hall, and his wife Kenna; her daughter, Kathy, and her husband, Steffen Moskoff; 7 grandchildren: Julianna, Rebecca, and Hunter Hall; Merisa, Karlee, Olivia, and Ethan Moskoff; her sister, Linda (Frank) Fleener, and 2 nephews: Adam and Brian Tanner.
Carol loved deeply, and she is loved deeply.
Funeral services will be held September 22, 2018, at 2 p.m., at Mountain Vista Chapel, 450 Mill Street, Ely, Nevada 89301, followed by a graveside service.
