 Cecelia was born in York Township, Fillmore County, Minn., on March 17, 1925 to John H. and Theresa A. (Ott) Leibold.  She was one of seven siblings growing up on a farm in rural York Township and attended country school through the eighth grade. 
 Cecelia was married to Lawrence Vernon Hall on June 5, 1947 at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church Rectory in Chester.  This marriage was blessed with twin boys, Garry and Larry. 
 She was a long time member of St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in Chester and more recently the Notre Dame Catholic Church in Cresco. 
 She enjoyed being a housewife and mother.  She also enjoyed cleaning the house and making the best possible meals for her family.  She was always looking for ways to do things better such as making the perfect pies and cakes, and getting the clothes spotlessly clean.  Cecelia also loved grooming her toy poodles.  She passed her love of nature onto her two sons and showed them how to take care of injured or young birds.  She was a prolific reader and liked the challenge of putting crossword puzzles together.  She had a fondness of Arabian horses and enjoyed riding her favorite horse ‘Lady’. 
 Cecelia is survived by her two sons, Gary and Larry Hall both of Rochester, Minn., and many nieces and nephews.   
 She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and five brothers: Leo, Edwin, Raymond, Arnold, Raphael, and a sister, Lorrinea.
