Lo-Letha M. Hall

I am the resurrection and the life; He that believeth in me though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. (John 11:25-26)

Lo-Letha “Letha” Toland-Hall departed this life unexpectedly on March 25, 2024, at the age of sixty-one, to exchange for eternal life. She is preceded in death by her late parents, Oscar Lee Jr. and Janet Toland; grandparents; Reverend Oscar and Mary Toland, Sr., and Mr. Robert and Helena Hunt; aunt; Barbara Jones (Charles); nephew, Martin Hall.

Letha was born February 21, 1963, in Columbus, Ohio. She attended Columbus Public Schools, where she graduated from Whetstone High School in the class of 1981. Upon graduation, she attended Ohio State University majoring in Horticulture, since she had an avid love for gardening.

Letha has two sisters, Melissa and Marquita, in which they have a remarkably close relationship. They shared countless adventures, from childhood pranks to late-night heart-to-heart conversations. They learned many valuable lessons from her, and she was always there for them.

Letha, the eldest grandchild, held her position with pride. She never let her siblings and cousins forget that she was the oldest. Teasingly, she would remind them that she was the oldest and they had to obey her.

On February 5, 1991, Letha had her one and only son, Mario John Hall, who she adored. If you saw Letha, you more than likely saw Mario. Their bond was unbreakable. She has planted seeds of motherly love, encouragement, and confidence in him. As Mario grew and matured, Letha gave him the freedom to explore, to stumble, and to rise. Yet, through it all, she remained his steadfast guide, celebrating his victories, comforting his wounds, and always tending to his heart with tenderness and care.

After a fulfilling career, Letha retired from the Regional Income Tax Agency. Throughout her professional journey, she also worked at the Bureau of Workers Compensation, the Kipp Academy of North Carolina, St. Vincents Behavioral Health Center, and UBER. With her diverse skills and unwavering dedication, she ventured into entrepreneurship by starting her own janitorial service.

Letha loved being a member of Faith Ministries Church, under the Leadership of Dr. C. Dexter Wise III, where her spiritually grew under his guidance. Here, she served as a member of the “Volunteers/Outreach Ministry.” She later moved to Charlotte, North Carolina and continued her fellowship with Faith Ministries Church via online worship. In 2023, Letha returned to Columbus, Ohio, at which time she reunited with her church family.

Although Letha enjoyed traveling and visiting family and friends, she felt most fulfilled gardening, fishing, and cooking. She was an incredible cook who put her heart and soul into every dish and was known for her delicious buttery pound cakes.

Letha’s memories will forever be cherished by her loving son, Mario John Hall; stepson, Carlton Reaves III; siblings, Melissa Niece (Douglas), Marquita Lewis (Kip); aunts, Jenny Gary, Cheryl Lipsey (Isaiah); uncle, James Toland (Marsha); nieces, Cydnee Toland Holmes, Martina Johnson; nephews, Douglas, Jaymison and Jaylin Niece; God-Daughter; Tanikqua Davis; beloved friend, MacArthur Tinker; former spouse, Carlton Hall, Jr.; in-laws, Deborah Hall, Cynthia Leveringston (Herbert Jr.), Tamaria Hall, George Wooten, and a host of great nieces and nephew, in addition to extended family and friends.

Visitation 10:00am and Funeral 11:00am Friday, April 5, 2024 at Faith Ministries, 2747 Agler Rd.
