Karla L. (Oliver) Hall

March 4, 1952 ~ October 1, 2021 (age 69)


Karla L. Hall, age 69, was met at the gates of heaven by some of her favorite people on October 1, 2021.

Karla, known to most as “Gram”, was born March 4th, 1952, to the late Bernard and Kathryn Oliver. She grew up in Byesville, Ohio and was a graduate of Meadowbrook High School. She was one of the hardest workers and truly enjoyed her residents and coworkers at Cambridge Health and Rehab, where she retired from after 30 years of service.

Many who knew Gram would say she was one of a kind. She raised her grandkids to appreciate the simple things in life. She never needed the material things, she was simply happy drinking her coffee, doing crossword puzzles, and watching “I love Lucy” or “The Golden Girls.” She also looked forward to seeing her great grand-babies every day after school. She was the most loving and caring person you could ever meet.

Gram had a lot to be proud of, but she would say that her biggest accomplishment in life was her grandkids, who she loved unconditionally. They could do no wrong in her eyes, and she believed the same thing of her great grandkids.

She was someone that you just enjoyed being around, even as stubborn as she was, and even when she was complaining about her back hurting or the neighbors being too loud, she was still the one person who just felt like home to so many around her. She was the glue that kept us all together.

She must have had the most joyful reunion when she entered into heaven. She joined her “favorite” grandchild, Cory Hursey, her sister and brother-in-law, Karen and Gene Mills, and her ex-husband, Marty Hall, who was still one of her greatest friends.

She left behind many people to carry on her memory. She is survived by one daughter, two grandchildren, Ashlie (Michael) Allen of Cumberland, and Logan (Courtney) Fair of Hilliard, Ohio. five great-grandchildren, who were the light of her life; Sidney, Kailem, Dawson, Boogie, and Isaac; four very special nieces, Kitty King, Kelly (Scott) Oeder, Kerina (Steve) Sisco, and Krista (Tony) Yarbrough; Many great nieces and nephews as well as great-great nieces and nephews; Her very special friends, Theresa “TC” Hall, Barb, Joyce (Dale), her Aunt Zora, and Ray (Marty) Fair. She also left behind two bonus grandkids, Isaiah (Sarah) Green and Lisa Roe. She would most definitely want me to mention her love for all of the people in her life. She had the biggest heart for those near and dear to her.

Friends and family may visit on Wednesday, October 6th from 4pm-7pm at Black-Epperson Funeral Home in Byesville with services on Thursday, October 7th at 11am with Steve Sisco officiating.
