Betty Jane (Parrett Hall) Ost of Cincinnati, formerly of Yellow Springs and Jackson, Miss., died Wednesday, Jan. 25. She was 82.
During her long life, Betty worked at home as a wife and mother, at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, and as a volunteer at All Saints Episcopal Church in Cincinnati. In recent years, she rarely missed watching Jeopardy, finishing the advanced crossword puzzle (in pen) and giving her opinion on topics in the news and in her family. Betty was a strong and amazing woman who will be greatly missed.
Betty is survived by her children Margaret Ballenger (Jeffrey), T. Michael Hall (Joann), Mark Hall (Becky), Patty Yates (Dave), Peggy Sanchez (Dan), Michael Ost (Paula), Julie Hornsby (Tony) and Elizabeth Berger (Rick). She is also survived by many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and friends. She was preceded in death by daughter Sheila Howell and by husbands Tom Hall and Tom Ost.
A celebration of Betty’s life will be held on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 1 p.m. at All Saints Episcopal Church in Cincinnati. Memorial donations may be made to Hospice of Cincinnati at P.O. Box 633579, Cincinnati, OH 45263-3579 or to All Saints Episcopal Church at 6301 Parkman Place, Cincinnati, OH 45213.
