Billie J. Waldrop Hall of Thomasville passed away at her home on September 13th, 2019. Born in Tifton, Georgia, she was the daughter of Rodge and Ruthie Waldrop. She was married to Charles Hall for 62 years, who predeceased her in September, 2008. Mrs. Hall was a member of Dawson Street United Methodist Church, Thomasville, Georgia for more than 65 years.

She was a member of the Susannah Wesley Sunday School Class, a member of the United Methodist Women Fellowship and was an advisor to the Methodist Youth Fellowship and also taught Sunday School. She supported youth activities and projects when her children were growing up.
She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and cherished her role in raising their large family. She was always willing to reach out to others and give them her support. Mrs. Hall enjoyed cooking, working in her flower garden, bird watching and taking care of her husband and six children. She was a thoughtful person, who never expected praise, however, was most deserving of any praise she received. In her later years, she thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, teaching them how to cook, enjoy the outdoors, especially letting them play in her gardens and pick beautiful bouquets of her favorite flowers, which she proudly displayed in her home. She showed her love, in many ways, to every family member and always had the perfect words to make each one feel special. Survivors include four daughters and sons-in-law, Deede and Eddie Freeman of Thomasville, Charlene and Larry Miller of Thomasville, Yvonne and Phil Youngblood of Valdosta, Kathy and Randy Bryant of Coolidge; two sons, Charles J.
