Kathryn Ellen Hall-Merenda

August 26, 1953 - November 28, 2020


On November 28, 2020 at her home, on a beautiful sunny Saturday morning, our beloved Kathy/Kate Hall-Merenda passed away following a very brief illness. Kathy was born in Brantford, Ontario and shortly after her family moved to London. Kathy remains to be the ray of sunshine and love to her husband of 34 years, Vito Merenda; devoted daughter to her mother, Wynn Hall; sister to Jon Hall and wife, Darill and family.   After graduating from UWO, she moved to Ottawa where she held many positions as a civil servant. It was in Ottawa that Kathy met her husband Vito, later moving back to London to be closer to her mother. Kathy always led an active lifestyle.  She will be missed by her cousins, Margaret Allen and Ian Grey, as well as the many friends that she made over the years across Canada, USA, and Belgium.  Kathy will be sorely missed by her friend Val Spencer. Kathy (Kate) will never be forgotten by her BF/ “sister of the heart”, Esther Graham, for 51 years and her family.  Many thanks to Dr. Hamilton and the palliative care nurses from Saint Elizabeth Health Care. Cremation has taken place and a private family service was held at Northview Funeral Chapel, 1490 Highbury Avenue North, London.
