Melissa Anne Hall, 53, of Arlington, Texas, passed from this world on November 22, 2022. She was born in San Bernardino, California, in 1969. Missy, her brothers, mother, and Marine Corps stepdad Wally moved to Savannah, Georgia, in 1972. This started a lifelong journey of living in many places across the United States and the world. She was a 1987 graduate of Lamar High School in Arlington, Texas, where she played the clarinet in the Honor’s Band. She earned an Associate of Science Degree in Computer Science and a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1999. Missy enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1991. She achieved the rank of sergeant when she received her honorable discharge in 1995. She proudly served in the Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) and was stationed in Saudi Arabia and Turkey during her tenure in the United States Air Force.

Missy married Mathew Hall while in the Air Force, and later their baby boy, Blaine, was born in 1995. Missy and Blaine returned to her hometown of Arlington, Texas, where she worked for Dickie’s in the IT department. Missy advanced her career and worked as a web developer for several companies, such as ThinkFinance and LifeSync.

Missy had a small jewelry-making business named Teal Gypsy. She loved making jewelry and had a passion for Mexican and Native American silver and turquoise jewelry. She had many canine pets over the years and was passionate about animal rights. She often said, “Love me, love my dogs.” Her last dog, Brindle, was cremated with her. She was a champion and inspiration to her friends and family.

Missy is predeceased by her birth father, George T. Finkle, Jr., and her beloved stepfather Wallace E. Ewell. She is survived by her son, Blaine Stephen Hall (Kisha); grandsons, Sage Edmund and Rayne William; mother, Judith Lee Ewell; brothers George T.

Memories Timeline


  1. Dear George, Please know I am thinking of you and your family with so much love. Blessings to you all. Love, Renee and Peg

  2. CandleImageMelissa was my closest neighbor. She was my friend and I truly loved her because of her kindness, generosity, the wonderful hugs, her honest admissions and her genuine concern for my wife and myself. She was like sunshine to me because she always made me feel warm on a cloudy winter day. It is with great sadness that I have to say goodbye. She will live in my heart and memory for as long as I live. Rest In Peace in the Arms of God in Heaven. Watch over us Angel.

  3. CandleImageMy dearest Gypsy. Oh how I miss you. You were not only my best friend but also my confidant, laughter when I needed it the most. She was a funny woman for sure. She would give you the shirt off her back and the last cam of food in her cabinet and so much more. We would text everyday until R-Hole. She has helped both Bruce and I in some tight situations and handled it like a pro. She always had good advice and her hugs were the best. She loved her dogs as well as every dog out there. They just came to her. I loved how she loved me and my family. She not our daughter Lilly how to make jewelry and started selling it herself! She loved her country and her fellow brothers and sisters in arms. She was my sunshine and my heart is broken. I know she’s is safe in heaven and taking over all the dogs. LOL. That’s my girl. I Love You more than you knew, my dearest Gypsy. 😘❤️😢❤️😘

  4. CandleImageMrs. Ewell, I had met Missy here at TxDot through you and Wallace. My most profound condolences to you and your family. She was a very nice person and will be greatly missed.

  5. CandleImageBlaine
    Our hearts are saddened at the loss of your mom. She was taken from you too soon. I know you will miss her very much. The loss of a mom leaves a hole in your heart that can never be healed. Only time can help ease the pain. May you find strength in God and your family to help you during this very sad time.
    We love you.

  6. Just heard about this I was shocked, Ms. Ewell Christi and send our deepest Condolences of this loss you and all your family will be in our thought 🙏

  7. CandleImageMy most sincere condolences to Judy, Blaine, George, James, Sage and the entire family. I cannot express or imagine the pain you all must be enduring, for too long. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help during this difficult time. I know she cannot see it; however, I wrote a poem for my best friend, whom I am devasted is no longer with us.

    Beautiful Missy

    As I sit here thinking of our decades of memories and cry,
    my heart and mind wonder “why?”
    Why were you stolen from us so very soon?
    Are you riding a unicorn through the Milky Way or flying with Brindle to the moon?
    You and I were supposed to grow old and senile and be new friends every day together.
    Now, my best friend cannot help me and love me through all kinds of weather.
    Your encouragement (“Chin up!”) and mentorship through college (“You got this!”) changed my life forever.
    You loved seeing my Oklahoma nature and horse pictures and told me you lived vicariously through me.
    Sure wish you had come, each time I asked you, and let me take care of you forever in the lovely forest of pine trees.
    The Lord God recently gave me a precious dream of you;
    We were dancing happily together and staring into each other’s bright eyes during the sunny day,
    and smiling so big, as if our faces might get stuck that way.
    Since you have been gone, I have bought a lot of gorgeous turquoise jewelry, which you love.
    Until we meet again, Teal Gypsy, I will look for you in the stars up above.
    The brightest shining diamond or the most dazzling, twinkling star in the heavens is where I believe that you are.

    I miss you terribly, BC! Never to hear your “Peep” on this side, again.

    All My Love Forever,
    ~ Stephanie – Your Gypsy Soul Sister

    Romans 8:35-39
