Anola Hull Obituary

SALEM - Anola Marie Hull, aged 64, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at the Salem Regional Medical Center in her beloved hometown of Salem, Ohio. Her life began there on May 18, 1959, as the daughter of the late William and Patricia Allison Hull.

Family was the center of Anola's life. Her love for family gatherings, holiday celebrations, and the simple joy of sharing meals in her home defined her as a matriarch whose generosity and care knew no bounds. She is survived and lovingly remembered by her children, Rebecca (Brigit) Young of Salem, and Braddock Watkins IV of Pittsburgh; her adored grandson, John “Tre” Williams; her dear sisters, Sue (Larry) Dye, Kathleen Burkholder, and Mary Groff; her brothers, James (Leslie) Hull, Bruce Clingerman, and Dennis Clingerman; sister-in-law Barb Hull; and a host of extended grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Anola was preceded in death by her sister, Barbara E. Hull, and brothers, Charles Hull and Bill Clingerman.

Anola's professional journey was as diverse and industrious as she was. In the 1980s, she contributed her talents to Brentwood Originals in Youngstown, working in a pillow factory. She then took on the role of Columbiana County babysitter, a position that allowed her to extend her nurturing spirit to the many children she cared for over the years. Later, Anola joined Fresh Mark, where she worked as a line worker.

Anola found peace and contentment in Salem's local parks, where she would spend time feeding the ducks and squirrels. She also had a unique fondness for driving around Salem, a pastime that allowed her to witness the ebb and flow of daily life in the town she called home. She took note of the favorite haunts of her fellow Salemites, appreciating the community's rhythms and the stories that unfolded within its streets.

Friends and family will be received at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Salem, on Saturday, February 3, 2024, from 11:00 a.m.-Noon with a funeral service at Noon with Reverend Aimee Raymond officiating.
