Edward Wallace Hall
June 17, 1924 - November 16, 2020

Place of Birth: Ancho, NM
Residence: Sidney, MT
Age: 96

Edward Wallace Hall was born June 17, 1924 near Ancho, NM. He was the firstborn child of Lorena Hall (Mount) and joined LP Hall’s four older children, Louise, Virgil, Edith, and Leonard. His brother, Donald, and sister, Martha Lou were born on the ranch in NM. His youth was spent on his father’s ranch where he had many adventures and enjoyed life with his siblings. He was a bright student, but illnesses and ranching obligations prevented him from completing high school.
Wallace initially thought to attend Asbury College, but God had another plan. He attended God’s Bible School in Ohio to complete his high school credits. Here, he met “the best thing that ever happened in my life”, Glenna Lynn Green. He married her in West Virginia on August 15, 1947. They moved to Kentucky where Wallace continued his studies in religion in preparation for the ministry.
The young couple moved back to New Mexico to assist in moving LP's ranching operation to western North Dakota. After helping the family, Wallace attended college at Eastern New Mexico University. Wallace received the gift of his firstborn son, William Parker, in 1950. After graduating with a degree in History and Religious Studies, Wallace began preaching as a Methodist minister. Over the next two years he served among four communities in eastern New Mexico as a circuit preacher.
Wallace and Glenna visited Trotters, ND to celebrate Donald’s marriage to Joan in 1953. While there, Wallace told LP he did not feel called to be a minister, so LP invited Wallace to ranch with the family. Wallace and Donald partnered well together on the ranch and ran a successful operation.
Wallace and Glenna had Katrinka Ann in 1954. The couple began to teach school in eastern Montana in 1956 and returned to the ranch on weekends and each spring. When there were enough students in the Trotters community to open a school, Wallace moved the family back to the ranch. The years spent on Beaver Creek were filled with joy and sorrow, abundance and loss, and memories to fill the storyteller’s soul.
Wallace and Glenna adopted their son Keltz Fletcher in the winter of 1967. They adopted their son Karsten Jess in the spring of 1969. Wallace enjoyed being a father and loved his children with a forgiving and enduring love.
Even though Wallace was a career rancher, he remained active in the work of the church. He taught many Sunday school classes, joined the Gideon’s, and served as a church elder. His love for God’s word and thankfulness for God’s grace defined his life. He performed weddings and preached when the need arose. He considered it a privilege to visit the elderly and the sick and had the ability to grieve with those in sorrow. He was compassionate to those he thought the ‘underdog’.
Wallace and Donald sold their ranch in 2006 but Wallace bought another ranch near Richey, MT and continued ranching. He found great joy on the back of a good horse and never gave up his passion of caring for cattle. In fact, he rode at his branding this spring. A great way to describe Wallace - a cattleman with an affinity and weakness for horses.
Wallace was a praying man. As his eyesight failed and he could no longer read the Bible, he spent even more time in prayer. He prayed daily for the nation, for the leaders, for his children, for his grandchildren, and he prayed for his great-grandchildren by name.
Wallace went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, November 16, 2020. He was welcomed by Glenna, his wife of sixty-nine years. And after fifty-four years, he was also reunited with his son, Parker. Wallace had numerous friends and relatives whom he longed to see again. He is survived by his daughter, Katrinka (David), sons, Keltz (Cindy) and Karsten, ten grandchildren, and thirteen great-grandchildren.

You all are in our thoughts and prayers. I have many fond memories of Wallace and being at the ranch when I was younger. I enjoyed Wallace as I grew up and took care of Martha Lou, Glenna and other members of the family. He will be missed by many but I know he is with his savior and his family members that are waiting for him in Heaven. May God's peace be with you all.

Katrinka and all of Wallace's family, It was always such fun when I was young to go with my Dad, Merrion Simonsen-cattle buyer, out to your ranch. to look at the cattle and visit your Dad and Mom and you kids. We never left without them sharing a prayer. Wallace not only talked about the Lord, he lived the life of a true Christian. May your memories bring you comfort. With love, prayers, sympathy and hugs, Charlotte

LI have known Wallace since he was my school teacher at Nohly, Mt. grade school. Parker & I was classmates. We stayed life long friends. He did my father’s funeral service for our family. He was a special guy & will be greatly missed by many. Greet Parker for me won’t you Wallace?

What do you say about a God-fearing cowboy, a true man of God?
Wallace was such a wonderful inspiration to our family, and he truly cared about people - and wanted to tell everyone about God’s love, about eternal security, about God’s salvation - do you know you’re going to be with Jesus.
He might be visiting with people from sitting in his saddle on a horse, over a cup of coffee, taking a ride in the Cattleac to the ranch, etc.
He had Jesus running through his veins, and everyone knew it.
Katrinka, Keltz, Karsten and family - Wallace was our saving grace, in our family. We will miss him tremendously, but we have the certainty of knowing he is with Jesus and his family that has gone before. Praise God. Thank You Jesus for sharing this family with us. We love you!

Wallace became my school teacher at Nohly, Montana. He was my first man teacher. He was my teacher for my 7th and 8th grades. In 1973 him and his wife Glenna let me and my family stay over night at their home when we came back for my father Carl Storviks funeral. Blessings to Wallace's family.
Much love and many hugs from .... Norma

This wonderful man was a real breath of fresh air for our little country school in Eastern Montana!! I was in the fourth grade and remember looking forward to the “ Music Days” because his sweet wife, Glenna, would step in and play piano for us! They were a fine example of Christianity at its best!! Prayers for his family.

Dear Family of Wallace,
Your dad and mom were the most gracious neighbors in Sidney especially to our oldest son who visited Karsten often and even went out to your ranch. May they rest in peace and prayers to you as you adjust to life without parents.

Katrinka and brothers So sorry about your beloved dad!! Now your dad and mom and our beloved husband and father, who went home on Jan. 23,2020, are reunited in their heavenly mansions. We met when a beloved lady from Montana named. Glenna, spoke at our CWC and stayed at our home. At her insistance I in turn spoke in Sidney and stayed at their home Loren took me to Sidney and spent the day at the ranch with your dad. This led to a special friendship with the love these two shared for the Lord, their families and cattle and horses. Later Sam and Jeff had the enjoyable privilege to spend time with your dad and Donalds family at the ranch. Our heartfelt sympathy and love to all the family!
