Gwendolyn “Gwen” Hall, 87, passed away at Mill Pond Senior Living on October 7, 2020. She was born in Tabor, Iowa, on August 21, 1933, the daughter of Herschel and Greta Asman.

Gwen was united in marriage to James Hall in 1952, and they recently celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary. Over the years, Gwen and Jim loved country dancing with friends and family at local night spots.

Gwen worked for the Des Moines Public School District until retirement. She was an active member of Epworth United Methodist Church where she volunteered many hours preparing and serving meals to the homeless.

Gwen was an avid sports and Hawkeye enthusiast. She loved the outdoors – camping, fishing, and gardening – and she was a tremendous cook and baker. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her family.
