Patricia “Pat” Hall, 80, of Warren Glen, Pohatcong Township, NJ, passed away on Wednesday, January1st, 2020 at St. Luke's Warren Hospital in Phillipsburg, NJ.
Daughter of the late Michael and Mary (Petrylak) Matviak, Pat was born in Easton, PA on February 12th, 1939.
Patricia spent her childhood in Phillipsburg, NJ and later moved to Warren Glen, NJ whilst in her highschool years. She then graduated Phillipsburg High School in 1957 and soon after met her soulmate, of 58 years, William “Bill” A. Hall. The lovebirds’ two daughters were born in Hahn, Germany, while Bill was stationed in the Air Force. Together, Patricia and her family returned to the states and ultimately settled once again in Warren Glen, NJ; this is where Pat raised her family and happily lived for over 60 years. During those years, she worked as the secretary for the Riegel Paper Corp. and then as the secretary for their Union, Local #1712. Pat loved traveling all across the United States with her husband and family. She also enjoyed shopping and had a passion for crafting -especially painting, sewing, jewelry making, and scrapbooking- with her daughters and grandchildren. Pat’s family was her life’s ultimate joy -- she was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
Patricia will be greatly missed by her two daughters and their spouses, Kim and William Corton of Auburn, NH and Susan and Kyle Kunich of Holland Township, NJ; grandchildren, Ashley, Kelsey, and Kyle Kunich, Meghan Kunich Fitzwater and her husband, Austin; and her new great-granddaughter, Violet; her brother, John Matviak; and her sister-in-law, Linda Hall Davis and family. She was predeceased by her beloved husband and soul-mate, William A. Hall and her brother, Michael "Mickey" Matviak.
