Avis Rhodes Hall

June 24, 1925 ~ March 10, 2019

ANGIER- Avis Rhodes Hall, 93, formerly of Angier NC, passed away peacefully after a period of declining health on March 9, 2019. Avis was born in Onslow County to the late Guy and Rosamond Rhodes on June 24, 1925. She graduated from Richlands High School, attended Atlantic Christian College (now Barton College), and moved to Angier in 1951 where her husband, Haywood was affiliated with First Citizens Bank. Avis moved to Windsor Point in Fuquay in 2017, where every need was met with grace and love. She is preceded in death by her parents, husband, brother Cecil Rhodes and sister Madeline Garner.

Avis was Director of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program in Harnett county for 16 years and retired in 1990. A member of Angier Baptist Church, she served as a deaconess and WMU director. A very compassionate person, Avis was involved in many areas of service in the community, church and county. She was a charter member of the Lee-Harnett Alliance for the Mentally Ill and a past member of the Lee-Harnett Mental Health Authority. Her interest in older adults prompted her to coordinate and help organize the Angier Senior Citizens Club. As President and avid supporter of the Angier Friends of the Library, she and her husband initiated a fund-raising drive for the Angier Public Library which helped elevate the local library to one of the best in the county. She was named Woman of the Year by the Angier Chamber of Commerce in 1983 and again in 1999.

Avis is survived by a daughter, Marye Rhodes Hall of Wilson, son Robert Haywood Hall and wife, Nancy of Apex. Grandchildren David and wife Liz of Knightdale, Eric and wife Christy of Cary, Kathryn, Rebecca and Lydia of Apex. Great-grandchildren Natalya, Peter, Donovan, Jackson, Spencer and Mackenzie.

Special thanks to Glenda McLeod, Betty Jo Spivey, Delores Stephenson and Patricia Young for the faithful love and devotion they have shown to Avis and Marye.

    Avis was always willing to do anything to help. When I was working part-time in the church office she would let us know of the sick in our community and when to remove them from the prayer list, which was a big help. The Lord will tell her well done, thy true and wonderful servant.

  3. Dianne Godfrey

    Avis was a beautiful and gracious lady. She was the first to welcome us at Angier Baptist. I’ll never forget that she came right to us and took our hands and said
    “Hello, I’m Avis and I try harder.” (Remember the Avis-Hertz car rental commercials?) She had a great sense of humor. Will see her again thanks to Calvary!

  4. Donna L. Denning

    She was my hero!!! So smart and involved in many, many activities. She made a difference in the Town of Angier, the County of Harnett, and the State of North Carolina, and made life better for the citizens.

  5. Louise Taylor

    Avis Hall was a remarkable woman, one who worked tirelessly but joyfully to make the world a better place. She was willing to work wherever she was needed–as a leader or as part of a group to make the world a better, safer, saner, and healthier place. And she also took the time to listen to the opinions of others and to look for ways to get a group to collaborate on a project. I offer my condolences to her family. We’re all a little poorer now that Avis is gone.
