Jeanette Ruth Dehning Hall, 92, passed into eternal life on November 14, 2020 surrounded by
her family. She was born in Chicago, Illinois on March 31,1928 to Gertrude and Arthur Dehning.
She was raised along with three sisters, and enjoyed family trips traveling across the United
States and Canada in her youth.

After graduating from Morgan Park Academy she attended University of Illinois, where she
joined the Pi Beta Phi Sorority.

She enjoyed summers at Beverly Hills Country Club where she met Charlie Hall. On December
26, 1947, Jeanette married Charles Hall. Together, they settled in the Chicago neighborhood of
Beverly where they had eight children and eventually moved the family to Wauwatosa,

Jeanette worked at Marshall Fields and Co., where she developed her knowledge of fine
collectables. She expanded her career by starting Treasure Traders, one of the first estate sale
businesses in Wisconsin. While growing her business, she was a docent at the Milwaukee Art
Museum and a member of the American Society of Appraisers.

Jeanette and Charlie were active members of St. Jude Parish, developing long lasting
friendships through the years of volunteering at the school and church festivities along with the
trips with fellow parishioners.

Early love of beaches and sunsets started with South Shore Country Club, then 20 plus years in
Grand Haven, Michigan. Eventually, their love of the beach drew them to Fort Pierce, Florida,
where they spent 20 years entertaining friends and family. We continue to enjoy walking the
beach to the jetty, which we refer to as “walking to the jetty with Netty”.

Jeanette always had a warm and welcoming home for her family and friends. She loved
throwing dinner parties, ice skating parties in Chicago and hosting the holidays. She was always
the life of the party and had a quick wit.

Jeanette is survived by 7 children, Judy (Bruce) Henry, Burt Hall, Barbara (Kurt) Mueller,
Kimberlie (Stan) Richardson, Cheryl (John) Faust, Jennifer (John) Scanlon, David Hall and 13
grandchildren: Chris Henry, Sharon (Roaten) Hinson, Joanne (Michael) Sarich, Avita (Dwayne)
Chin, Sarah (Marcel) Morin, Noel (Carlye) Mueller, Kevin Quade, Michael Richardson, Lauren
Faust, Katie Faust, Danny Faust, Charlie Scanlon, Erin Scanlon. In addition, Jeanette is
survived by her ten great-grandchildren: Chase, Luke, Jaxon, Trysten, Ty, Jordan, Nathan,
Maxime, Maya and Cora.

Jeanette is preceded in death by her husband of 70 years, Charlie, son, Charles Jr (Chuckie)
and 3 siblings, Virginia, Marilyn and Juanita.

A Mass and celebration of her life will be held at a later date at St. Jude Parish, 734 Glenview
Ave, Wauwatosa. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to NAMI (National Association of
Mental Illness).
