Phyllis Mae (Grover) Hall, 76, of Austin, passed away peacefully Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015, at Comforcare Good Samaritan Society, surrounded by her loving family, Pastor Dale, and the compassionate staff of Comforcare.



Phyllis was born Nov. 15, 1938, in Austin, Minnesota, to Richard ‘Clare’ and Gae (Greenlee) Grover. She attended Queen of Angels School in Austin. On Oct. 1, 1955, she was united in marriage to Donald Hall in Austin. The couple raised two children. Phyllis was a lifelong resident of Austin, and was a member of Crane Community Chapel. Phyllis loved to camp at the cabin in Fillmore County, and she enjoyed sewing, solving Sudoku puzzles, and tinkering around in her basement. Among her most cherished times were those spent with her family. She had an extremely strong bond with her sisters and brothers. Family was the most important thing in her life. Phyllis’ biggest joy was her five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. They brought her love, laughter, and fun, which she lovingly returned to them. A very dedicated wife, mother, grandma and sister, Phyllis will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Phyllis is survived by her husband Donald Hall of Austin; her daughter Kimberly (Jim) Burzinski of Pueblo, Colorado; her son Rick (Brenda) Hall of Austin; five grandchildren: Jessica (Wayne) Martinez, Jimmy Burzinski, Anna Burzinski, Breanna (Adam) Kemmerick, and Brayden Hall; four great-grandchildren: Mason, Finley, and Brody Kemmerick and Kayleigh Martinez; three brothers: Dick (Linda) Grover of Harmony, Minnesota, Bill (Mary) Grover of Adams, Minnesota, Fred Grover of Jennings, Luisiana; five sisters: Shirley Brown of Austin, Linda (Mike) Burzinski also of Austin, Kathy Grover of Adams, Minnesota, Debbie Roberts of Harmony, Minnesota and Joy Metz of Adams, Minnesota; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
