She was born on October 14, 1939 in Birmingham, Alabama to Charles J. and Eunice Moncrief. At the time of her death, she was married to her soulmate, James L. Hall.
Everyone knew her as Jackie and she lived her life to the fullest. She overcame many obstacles including being born with issues with her knees and hearing that she would never be able to walk. Her grandmother, Annie Jarrett, didn’t settle for this and not only did Jackie walk without any issues, she ran. In high school, she played basketball, tennis, was a member of the band as well as a drum major. I don’t remember her losing anything that she participated in like ping pong, bowling, card nights with the ladies and many spins of the slot machines in Cherokee (ok maybe she lost in Cherokee).
She had various careers over the years including an assistant at ETSU, computer key puncher, and in her later years she enjoyed being a grandmother to kindergartners at several of the elementary schools. She was a member of Bethel Christian Church where she enjoyed playing the organ and being a part of several of the committees.
She was preceded in death by both her parents, brothers Franchot Ernest, Francis Patton, George Hall, sisters Audrey Moncrief, Mignon Charles, and Candace Tabb, her loving daughter Vivian Mekenon and her cousin that she loved as her sister Shirley Fisher.
She is survived by brother Michelle Moncrief (Barbara), Wendell Hall, sisters Katie Dave, Stephanie Rodgers, Dawn Orie, Betty Lou Turner
, son Andra Moncrief, daughters Eunyce Saunders, Regina Raglin, step children Juanell Leach, Angie Hall, Rodney Hall (Teresa), grandchildren, Brandon Grant (Ashley), Maurice Moncrief (Tegan), Chivonne Blair (Thomas), Eric Raglin, Kristopher Grant, Jasmine Saunders, David Mekenon Jr., Rashida Bridwell, Omari Bridwell, Brittney Leach, Olivia Hall, six great grandchildren, many beloved cousins, brothers and sister-in-laws, daughter and son-in-laws, friends and family.
She was a devoted wife, loving mother and friend to all who were blessed to know her.
