LENDELL BARNETT HALL, was born on March 15, 1948 to the late David and Sadie Barnett. Free-spirited, feisty, and fun-loving are a few of her lively characteristics. At the age of thirteen, Lendell decided to join Saint Matthew United Methodist Church in Turner Station. She followed the lead of her father and served on the Junior Usher Board. She loved the Lord.
Lendell received her early education in the Baltimore County School System. In 1966, she graduated from Dundalk Senior High School in 1966. After graduation, she attended the Cortez Peter's Business School in 1967. Lendell was employed with Bethlehem Steel Corporation in Sparrows Point Maryland, Western Electric, the City of Baltimore as well as working in several Insurance Agencies and with lawyers.
Linda as she was so affectionately called by her family, loved sports. She played on the Recreation's Basketball, Volleyball and most importantly she loved the game of softball. She had many trophies that showcased her skills in the sport. She played for the Western Electric team as well as in the Turner Station Community for about ten years. She also loved to dance and listen to gospel music.
She was the life of the party. The combination of a contagious "Smile" and "Classy Style", Lendell was also known to her peers as "Ms. Pretty". She was always dressed to the nine and commanded the attention of everyone in the room. Always planning affairs and trying to keep everyone coming together. She had the ability to make you laugh when you were feeling down. She was full of life and was very easy to get along with. She always thought of others before thinking of herself. One of her favorite sayings were "No Fool No Fun!".

Hall Jr. and David Alexander Hall (Anisha Hall); eight grandchildren, Nitia Hall, LaKiarra Fitzgerald, Jameria Hall, Ronald Hunt, Devon Duncan, Dione Walker, Chaniyah Chisholm and Ky'Miar Holly; five great grandchildren, Davin Thomas, Da'Neria Thomas (both preceded her in death) Rhyan Winter Hunt, Egan Davis III and Saige Lee Duncan; two sisters Deanna Fleming and Sharon Barnett; and a host of family and friends.
