Sarah was born Nov. 14, 1916, the only daughter of Hiram and Amanda Partin. She was the third of seven children. In 1915, her family moved from Kentucky to the Castleford, Idaho, area where they settled and farmed.

She married Emmit Lester Hall on Aug. 2, 1936. They lived in the Castleford area. In 1941, they moved to Arizona where Emmit helped with the war effort, working at Williams Field in Chandler, and Sarah kept the home fires burning.

After the war they returned to Castleford and opened Hall's Auto Repair. In 1951, they moved to Mountain Home, where Sarah worked in several local cafes. In 1959, they started their family by adopting Tom and Rosemarie.

Sarah was a member of the First Southern Baptist Church where she served until her health kept her at home. "Sarah loved her family and was glad to live long enough to have a great-grandchild, Megan Berry, whom she enjoyed in her latter years," her family noted. "She especially loved visiting with family and friends and also loved to cook for her family and kept her son-in-law well suppled in cookies."

Sarah is survived by: a son, Tom Hall of Hammett; a daughter, Rose and her husband, Ed Plympton, of Mountain Home; four grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

She was preceded in death by her husband, six brothers, a grandson and a daughter-in-law.
