Hilda Louise Hallman Weeks

Hilda Louise Hallman Weeks was a loyal and devoted member of Rosewood Baptist Church for over 70 years and, before her lengthy illness, she was a teacher in the Older Children’s Bible Study Division for quite a long time as well as an asset to the Sanctuary Choir for many years.

Mrs. Weeks died Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014, at the age of 81.

She responded enthusiastically to all her work in the church and was filled with God’s love for her family. We needed the strength and love she was able to show us during her long illness. Mrs. Weeks made her life richer through her love of people, especially children and through music and pets.

She was employed for 10 years with Citizens and Southern National Bank.

She was born Dec. 10, 1932, and was preceded in death by her parents, Isaiah Madison Hallman and Gurnie Sturkie Hallman; husband, Gilson Y. Weeks; brothers, Dewey Madison, Kline O’Neal Hallman; half-brother, Richard I. Hallman; and half-sisters, Pearl Cunningham, Maebelle Roof and Alma Taylor.

She is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Shirley and Robert A. Foy; brother, Charles Hallman; half-sister, Dorothy Blackwell; sister-in-law, Sandra Hallman; eight nieces and nephews; and 15 great-nieces and great-nephews.

A funeral service honoring Mrs. Weeks’ life and giving glory to God will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014, at the Pond Branch United Methodist Church Chapel in Gilbert with burial at the church cemetery with Miss Pansy Gaynor officiating. The family will receive friends immediately following the graveside service.

Pallbearers will be Keith and David Hallman, Brian Daniels, Michael Blackwell, Samuel Paulk and Andrew Hall.

Memorials may be made to a church or charity of one’s choice.

Our sincere appreciation is given to all those who loved her and cared for her during her lengthy stay at NHC Parklane.

Please leave online condolences for the family at Dunbar Funeral Home.
