We learned late yesterday evening that the City of Bevil Oaks had lost another longtime and beloved resident, Dolores Hall. Dolores, and husband Orville, moved here in 1947, started their family and began, not only raising a family, but working to build Bevil Oaks into the community it is today. Orville was our first Mayor and served this community for 18 years in that capacity and, at the same time, was one of the founding fathers of the Southeast Texas Regional Planning Commission. He was a man of great vision, not just for our community but the region. While Orvillle was doing this, Dolores was busy being wife, mother and writing newspaper articles of progress being made in Bevil Oaks. She promoted the City as only someone who lived here and loved it could do. In her later years, as we were trying to document the history of Bevil Oaks, she graciously gave us her time sharing her memories and copies of those newspaper articles so we could have an accurate record for future generations to appreciate. Fortunately, the work we had done on the history, along with copies of the newspaper articles, were in safekeeping when Hurricane Harvey arrived. Eventually, the history will be published and Orville and Dolores’ service to this community and Dolores’ articles will be available for all to read and enjoy and to remember this beautiful lady. She will be greatly missed.
Visitation will be from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. , Sunday March 17 at Broussard’s 1605 Major Drive, Beaumont, TX. Funeral service will be at Wesley United Methodist Church, 3810 Major Drive, Beaumont, TX at 10:00 a.m., Monday, March 18, 2019.
