Patricia Hall

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.

A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at 10 AM at the Greenwich Cemetery, 15 Greenwich Church Road, Greenwich Township, NJ. A Celebration of Patricia's Life will follow at 12 PM at the Alexandria First Presbyterian Church of Mount Pleasant, 141 Little York- Mt. Pleasant Road, Alexandria Township, NJ, with Pastor Nick Hatch officiating. Arrangements are under the care of the Johnson-Walton Funeral Home, 24 Church Road, Milford, NJ.

Our most sincere condolences for the family of Pat Hall, especially daughters Kim & Susan. We were neighbors in Orlando, & my parents so enjoyed their friendship with Pat & Bill, as my sister & I enjoyed their girls. We were excited to visit them in NJ after they moved up North, & my Mother very much enjoyed staying in touch with her exceptional friend Pat thru letters & phone calls. Pat was the sweetest, most kind lady, truly beautiful inside & out, and very humble about her movie-star looks. My husband Art really enjoyed meeting both Pat & Bill when they visited FL years ago, and my parents brought them into our school. Recently, Pat sent my Mom a box of unique belt buckles, one having belonged to my Dad from the Post Office, which they saved for many years--it meant the world to my Mother! These past few years, Mom & I always looked forward to speaking to Pat and hearing about her family, the source of all her joy and pride. We never once heard her say an unkind word about anyone. Pat was such a special lady who will be missed by all who knew her. We send love & prayers to her girls and her extended family XOXO
