Marie Susan (Zick) Hall

Born December, 8, 1927, at home in Manchester Township, in Boone County, Illinois. Her parents were Walter W. Zick and Lena E. (Johnson) Zick. As a child Marie attended Carpenter Elementary School, a one room school house. She graduated from Capron High School and received a two-year degree from Rockford Career College. Marie married Edward Hall on November 28th, 1947 at Jefferson Prairie Lutheran Church. She worked as a dietician at Beloit Hospital and then as a secretary at Manchester Elementary School. She served on Manchester Town Board for over 25 years. She also worked as an office manager in her son’s (Tim) small engine repair business. At Edwards Apple Orchard in Poplar Grove, IL, Marie was the watermelon pickle-maker, head raspberry-picker and one of the “Fudge Ladies.” A life-long member of Jefferson Prairie Lutheran Church, Marie served for many years in the Ladies Aid and the Altar Guild. She loved cooking and collecting recipes, participating in Sons of Norway activities, keeping track of family and friends, researching family genealogy and visiting her cabin on the lake in Michigan’s U.P.
