Hall, Ann Carolyn Short Ann Carolyn Short Hall, age 83, died August 15, 2010. Funeral services are set for 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 18, in the Wildwood Chapel at Restland. Interment is to be at 11 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 19, in Evergreen Cemetery in Paris. Born in Paris, Texas on November 23, 1926, Carolyn was the first of two lovely daughters to delight Lydia Aden and Raleigh Ernest Short. After an idyllic childhood in Paris, she found her calling as a Registered Nurse after training in pediatrics at Bradford Memorial and obstetrics at Baylor Hospital, both in Dallas. In 1947 she married a handsome young surgeon, Dr. William Lloyd Hall. Their exciting early married life found them stationed in Washington D.C., Chicago, China Lake in California’s Mojave Desert and in the Panama Canal Zone as Bill served in the U. S. Navy. Over the years Carolyn turned her attention to their growing family, which by 1958 would include four children: Marc, Mike, Lisa and Jay. The Oak Cliff area of Dallas became home. Family and friends will always remember Carolyn’s ever-youthful personality; the interest in others that made her such a wonderful listener and charming conversationalist; that feisty nature and the sparkle in her eye; her love of all dogs, especially miniature schnauzers; and the fierce, loving loyalty she had for those close to her. She will be missed and remembered by her special friends on Averill Way, by the Oak Cliff doctors and wives she regularly lunched with, by her Paris classmates and by all who ever ate her coconut amaretto or buttermilk pies. Preceded in death by her daughter Lisa, she is survived by sister Nancy Cannada, son Marc and his wife Susan, son Mike and his wife Eve, son Jay and his wife Stephanie, grandchildren Lisa, Michael, Leslie, Cameron, Morgan and Hunter, great grandchildren Miles and Lyla, and by a wonderful extended family of cousins, nieces and nephews.
