Miss Barbara Hall, Interim Organist/Director

Miss Barbara Hall1950 Paul & Betty Hall moved to Salisbury, Maryland, and were soon blessed with a young lady who would forever touch the lives of many folk in the Salisbury Community. Barbara grew up in a time of abundant and beautiful church music at Asbury. It caught her fancy, and it was not too long before she was on the organ bench leading the congregation in song. Barbara played many, many services and concerts here, and for decades would travel back to Salisbury to play the organ and/or direct the choir for festival services such as Christmas Eve, Lessons & Carols, Palm Sunday, etc. We are very blessed to have been able to know and share with this wonderful person of faith. God be with you Barbara.

Barbara Rogers Hall
Trenton, NJ–Barbara Rogers Hall of Trenton died Friday, May 25, 2007, after a long battle with cancer.
Barbara was born in Salisbury, Maryland in 1954 and graduated from Wicomico Senior High School in 1971. She was a 1976 graduate of Towson University, and after graduation, taught at Wicomic Senior High School and Parkside High School.

Barbara attended Mercer County Community College in Trenton, Westminster Choir Colleg in Princeton, NJ, and Salisbury University. At the time of her death, she was working with the New Jersey Department of Public Health. Her specialty was emergency medicine, working as a nurse, a paramedic and a teacher in the field. Recently, she consulted with public health officials in Poland to develop similar models for pre-hospital emergency care. She also worked at Capital Health Center in Trenton for 23 years.

Along with her work in emergency medicine, Barara was keenly interested in classical church music. She sang, played the pipe organ and served numerous churches in Maryland and New Jersy as an organist and choirmaster.

Barar was a gifted teacher and a generous and loving friend to all she met. She will be greatly missed by her large family of friends in Maryland and New Jersey.

She was the daughter of the late R.Paul Hall, aslo of Salisbuvy. Ms. Hall is survived by her mother, Mrs. Elizabeth S. Hall of Salisbury; her brother, the Rev. Canon Robert P. Hall and his wife, Conee, of Wilmington; as well as several cousins on the Eastern Shore.

A memorial service will be held Friday at 11 AM at Asbury United Methodist Church in Salisbury. Friends may call one hour prior to the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggest contributions be made to the Organ Fund of Asbury United Methodist Church, 1401 Camden Avenue, Salisbury, MD 21801; the Building Fund of Camp Pecometh, 136 Bookers Warf Road, Centreville, MD 21617; or Humae Society of Wicomico County, 5130 Citation Drive, Salisbury, MD 21804.

Camp Pecometh was a very special place for Barbara, since it is where her journey as a Christian began. As such, its mission as a location of learning and recreation for our youth was highly important to her. I know that she would appreciate your helping to support its work in her memory.

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for your gifts to the Organ Fund at Asbury in memory of Barbara. She grew up with that organ where she developed a love for good classical church music. She loved hearing the organ being played, and she certainly loved playing it herself. Your gift to the Fund in her memory is special.

Betty Hall
