Erika S. Hall, 16, Westport


Erika S. Hall, 16, of Westport, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, April 26, 2014. She was the daughter of Nathan R. and Eileen M. (McQuoid) Hall of Westport.

Born in Fall River, she was a sophomore at Westport High School. Erika lived to experience every ounce of joy and wonder that this world had to offer. This joy expressed itself in art, music and dance and most importantly the lives she touched — those who were privileged to know her as a friend. She leaves behind exquisite works of art, the fading strains of joyful music, memories laced with grace and beauty and most importantly lives forever changed by her boundless love. She possessed a soul so wild, free and exploding with love that this world could not contain her. We look forward to seeing her flourish in God’s new heaven and earth where there will be no limits and life will be free from the sting of death.

Survivors along with her parents include her paternal grandparents, Robert and Jeannie (DeYoe) Hall of Bronx, NY; maternal grandparents, Bill and Connie (Harpel) McQuoid of Westport; one brother, Brendan N. Hall of Westport; four sisters, Terriann L.C. Hall, Charis E. Hall, and Dakodah J. Hall, all of Westport, and Alessia Carrara of Bergamo, Italy; as well as several aunts, uncles and cousins.

Her funeral service, to which relatives and friends are invited, will be Saturday, May 3, at 10 a.m. at the Dartmouth Bible Church, 52 Morton Ave., Dartmouth, MA 02747.

Calling hours will be Friday, May 2, from 2:30-7:30 p.m. at the Lighthouse Assembly of God, 522 American Legion Highway, Westport, MA 02790.

Interment will be private and held at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Westport Education Foundation, P.O. Box 3213, Westport, MA 02790.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Potter Funeral Home, Westport.
