Rebecca was born April 2, 1964 in Tazewell County, VA to Charles and Rosemary Bentley. She accepted Christ when she was 6 years old and traveled with her father during his ministry. Rebecca’s first paying solo gig was at the age of 7 when she was paid a quarter to sing at her home church. Her dad started a new church when she was 14 and she served as the pianist.
After graduating from Garden High School in 1982, she went on to Bluefield College (VA) where she was involved in theatre and choir until she graduated in 1986. She then moved to Northern Virginia and began her professional career.

Rebecca met Tim Hall in the fall of 1994 and they were married August 19, 1995. In 2006, she and her family moved to North Carolina so she could pursue her calling to full-time ministry. She graduated in May 2010 with a Master’s degree in Divinity from Campbell University. While attending school Rebecca interned as a church office assistant at Woodhaven Baptist Church in Apex, NC and served as an accompanist for the Senior Adult Choir at Fuquay Varina Baptist Church. Rebecca then served as Minister for Missions and Children at Ridge Road Baptist Church from 2011 to 2014. Since the fall of 2016 she has been a Ministry Assistant at the Raleigh Baptist Association.

She was very passionate about helping people and serving her community by volunteering with a variety of organizations. She volunteered as a financial assistant and mentor for the Christian Women’s Job Corps. She was a room mom at Wake Christian Academy, where Carter is currently a junior. Most recently, after taking a sewing class, she became a costumer for Spiritual Twist Productions, which held a special place in her heart for the last several years.

Despite all her work and academic successes, Rebecca was best known for her deep love for her Lord, her family, her friends – she never knew a stranger. Her smile was radiant, her wisdom never-ending, her wit quick, and she never wavered in showing and sharing love to all.

Rebecca was preceded in death by her father, Charles Bentley; maternal grandparents, Tom and Martha Owens; paternal grandparents, Raymond and Rachel Bentley; father-in-law, Marion Lee Hall; and sister-in-law, Gena Bentley.

She is survived by her loving family which includes her husband, James “Tim” Hall; daughter, Sierra Hall; son, Timothy “Carter” Hall; mother, Rosemary Bentley; sister, Rachel Coleman; brother, Charles “Randy” Bentley; mother-in-law, Joyce Kidd Hall; special cousins, Valerie Looney, Brandee Brown, Summer Chambers, Tara Hall-Owens; and lovingly remembered by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
