Mrs. Wilma Lee Hale, 68, of Bartley, WV, passed away Wednesday, April 1, 2020 at her home. She passed from this world to receive her Heavenly reward that she spoke of so often the past several years.
Mrs. Hale was born February 22, 1952 in Atwell, a daughter of the late Arber and Virgie Dunford Addair. She took great pride in being the pastor’s wife and assisted her husband in his pastor-ship of the Atwell Mountain United Church of God since 1976. Her favorite thing to do was to attend church and testify about God’s miracles, which he had done in her life, whenever she was given the opportunity.
In addition to her parents, Mrs. Hale was preceded in death by one sister, Alice Deskins, as well as several brothers, Mike Johnson, Eugene Addair, Ray Click, and Charles Click.
