Freddie D. Hall is now reunited with the love of her life, Harold H. Hall, after passing away on May 13, 2019, following a long illness. Born March 9, 1923, Freddie was the daughter of Sim Franklin and Martha Elizabeth McCraw Barfoot of Edinburg, Mississippi. She was predeceased by her father and mother, three brothers, five sisters and devoted son-in-law, Leo Tickner, who never referred to her as anything less than “Mrs. Hall”. She leaves behind her daughter, Mrs. Leo (Jerry) Tickner, of Jackson, Mississippi as well as her beloved grandchildren, Dooney and Holly Tickner of Destin, Florida. She is also survived by a number of much loved nieces and nephews. The Lord Jesus Christ and all of her family were the focus of her life. Freddie was a long-time resident of Jackson, Mississippi. She and Harold enjoyed being on or near the water, boating on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and Ross Barnett Reservoir, and enjoying time with family and friends in their homes on the Gulf and Bay in Destin, Florida. Freddie cherished playing with her family on the beaches and swimming in the Gulf at Pass Christian, Mississippi; Sarasota and Destin, Florida.  Freddie was generous to a fault; she was an outstanding cook, seldom if ever looking at a recipe and sharing her results with anyone from her family to the Belhaven Basketball Team boys. She loved landscaping and gardening, keeping a beautiful yard and relishing hours of time spent outdoors doing the work. Services officiated by the Rev. Dr. F. Lindsay Moffett will be held on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, with burial following in Destin Memorial Cemetery, Destin, Florida at 11:00 A.M.  A nearly lifelong Presbyterian, Freddie was a faithful supporter of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Memorials in her honor, if desired, may be made to the aforementioned at 1 Billy Graham Parkway, Charlotte, NC 28201; Trinity Presbyterian Church, 5301 Old Canton Rd., Jackson, MS 39211; or First Presbyterian Church, 154 Calhoun Avenue, Destin, FL 32541.
