Joanna Hall, age 92, died peacefully at home in Benton on Wednesday, June 11, 2014.
Throughout her life she expressed her love for family and friends through her sweet, kind spirit, her quick-to-laugh humor, her warm smile, and her twinkling blue eyes. She was grateful to all who helped her live her last days in her home, a happy place bursting with memories, with wonderful views of the creek and woods filled with creatures including a pair of barred owls.
Mildred "Mil" Hampton was born Oct. 23, 1941, in New Orleans and raised in Sorrnto, La., to the late Sullivan and Lucinda Hampton.
Mildred departed this life with her baby girl holding her hand and her family by her side as she received her wings on June 4, 2014, at Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock at the age of 72.
Mildred accepted Christ and was baptized Aug. 28, 1988, at Evening Star Missionary Baptist Church in Harvey, La., under the leadership of Pastor Keith Paul Stewman.
