She was born November 1944 in Sudetenland, Germany and then grew up near Stuttgart after World War II. During this time, she met her future husband Granville Carrington “G.C.” Hall Jr. of Clifton Forge, VA, who was stationed in Germany in the service. They were married and moved from Germany to Clifton Forge in the mid 1960’s and started a family. GC’s job at the U.S. Postal Service moved the family to Roanoke, VA in 1979. Just two years after the move to Roanoke, tragedy struck, and GC passed away suddenly of a heart attack. This left Anne a 36-year-old widow with two school-aged children. Anne spent most of her working life as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and retired from Virginia Veterans Care Center. She was always known for care of others – starting with the outstanding care and opportunities she gave her children. She also shared her commitment to others with the patients that were fortunate to have her as their nurse at VVCC. After retirement from VVCC, Anne herself fell victim to a series of medical issues. As a result, she moved into The Village on Pheasant Ridge Retirement Community where she lived for over 10 years and developed strong friendships with other residents and staff. Anne was a devote Catholic and her strong faith helped her and her family through all the trials and tribulations of life on this earth. She had a quiet demeanor and the most amazing sense of humor that you had to really pay attention, or you would miss it. She especially enjoyed it when people would ask her about “German accent.” She touched so many people’s lives and she will be missed greatly.
In addition to her parents, Johann Rusnak and Anna Kruppa, and her husband, she was preceded in death by three brothers, Konrad, Albert and Johann Rusnak.
She is survived by a daughter, Christina Ann Warren and husband Michael; a son, John Michael Hall and wife Kelly; three grandchildren, Ryan Konrad Scott, Bailey Marie Hall, and Matthew Carrington Hall.
A private graveside service, where she will be laid to rest beside GC, will be held on Monday, April 27, 2020 in Crown Hill Cemetery, Clifton Forge with Father Augustine Lukenge officiating.
