Ms. Diana Hall Tribute

     Diana French Hall was born on April 1, 1959, to the late Mr. and Mrs. James Arthur and Mary Louise French of Orrum, North Carolina. She was educated in the Robeson County School System where she graduated from Orrum High School in 1978. During high school, she won Ms. Congeniality and runner up in the Robeson County Black Pageant. Upon graduation, she attended Robeson Community College to pursue Early Childhood.

     She worked in the textile industry after college in different locations. Thanks to Louise Lassiter for teaching her how to play the piano, where she later served as the church piano player for First Orrum Missionary Baptist Church. She served in many departments of the church especially in the choir, where she loved to sing for the Lord. She would sing the Holy Spirit down in this church. She loved to sew, arts and crafts, and cook, and she loves to play games on her “pad”, but she never let anything get her down. In 1994, she suffered a stroke but with God’s help she came back with full force. She was paralyzed on one side, but she was able to do more with one arm than some people can do with two. She was also a breast cancer survivor, she didn’t let this get her down either. She loved spending time with her family, family was everything to her. As a mother, she was a nurturer, compassionate, protective, very caring, very loving, kind and so much more. She was a very strong woman with very strong faith. She was known for her golden heart, she loved to give and help anyone that crossed her path.
