Boyceville community remembers woman who helped countless others


Boyceville (WQOW) - An area community is mourning the sudden loss of a woman who made a difference in the lives of so many.

In March of 2012 we brought you the story of Jefferson Award winner LuAnn Hall.

This year, just two days before Christmas LuAnn passed away from a heart attack at 60-years-old.

LuAnn was involved with many different causes in Dunn County. She helped to found a food pantry and created the Coat Closet in Boyceville, where anyone in need could come to receive free and warm winter clothing.

"I can't imagine a world without her in it," said co-chair of the Coat Closet Glenise Thomas. "I can't imagine going back to the Coat Closet and her not being there to work with. The world just lost a fantastic person and this is going to leave a great big hole in our community."

Each fall LuAnn collected school supplies for local schools. She also organized a holiday toy drive for needy children and did so this year, while her own home was filling up with water from a broken pipe.

"She was more concerned that I got those gift cards and gifts to West CAP than about the water in her basement," said friend Marguerite Blodgett. "Her furnace was out yet getting those gifts delivered was more important. How can you replace someone like that?"

A visitation for LuAnn will be held Friday night from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Anderson Funeral Home in Glenwood City. A memorial service will take place Saturday morning at the United Methodist Church in Boyceville at 11 o'clock.
