Virginia R. Hall, headed Realtors' group

May 17, 1991

Virginia Reeves Hall, who was the first woman to serve as president of the Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors, died Wednesday of cancer at Fallston General Hospital. She was 75 and lived in Bel Air.

Services for Mrs. Hall, who was a member of the Real Estate Commission of Maryland, will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at the Mountain Christian Church, 1824 Mountain Road, Joppa.

Last year, she headed the Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors, which had named her "Realtor of the Year" in 1972. She also had served as president of the Harford County real estate board in 1978.

She had served on the boards of the Maryland Association of Realtors, the National Associations of Realtors and the Central Maryland Multiple Listing Service.

She was a member of the Real Estate Commission of Maryland from 1984 until 1988. She also served in 1979 as president of the All Points Relocation Service.

The former Virginia Zell Reeves was a native of Sparta, N.C., who was reared in Bel Air and worked as a legal secretary there after her graduation from Bel Air High School.

In 1936, she married J. Vernon Hall, then of Fork. They started their own real estate business, J. Vernon Hall Inc., 20 years later.

They sold the business in 1981, but she remained associated with successor firms, Magill Associates; Magill Yerman and Company Realtors/Better Homes and Gardens; Meredith Real Estate/Better Homes and Gardens; and finally Prudential Preferred properties.

She also taught in the Mountain Christian Church Sunday school and was a member of the Inner Wheel of the Bel Air Rotary Club, the Harford County Historical Society, the Harford County Democratic Women's Club and the auxiliaries of the Bush River Power Squadron and the Boumi Temple Yacht Club.

In addition to her husband, her survivors include two foster sons, Samuel Kirkendall of Churchville and Frank Kirkendall of Westminster; a sister, Rose E. Taylor of Bel Air; two brothers, Ellis V. Reeves and George C. Reeves Jr., both of Havre de Grace; a half-sister, Sue Underwood of Homestead, Fla.; two half-brothers, Oscar Reeves and John Van Reeves, both of Sparta; and nine nieces and nine nephews.

The family suggested that memorial contributions could be made to the Mountain Christian School.
