May 17, 1985-April 21, 2020
Graveside services for Dayla Paige Hale, 34, of Shreveport will be Friday, April 24 at 2 p.m. in Old Armistead Chapel Cemetery, Coushatta, under the direction of Rockett Funeral Home, Ringgold. Bro. Tom Moore and Bro. Tim Page will officiate.
Dayla Paige Hale was born in Shreveport May 17, 1985, with a congenital defect of her liver. This defect was not discovered until 2005, though the damage it would cause started much earlier. She graduated fifth in her class at Liberty High School in Liberty, Texas. She then graduated Magna Cum Laude from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, with a degree in Marketing. She was always the person everyone wanted to be around. She kept toys on her desk and people in the offices where she worked would fill her desk with more and more toys.
Dayla’s life from the age of 12 was always affected by Primary Hyperoxaluria, the disorder caused by her liver defect. Her life was filled with doctors, hospitals, pain and gradual taking away of all the things she loved to do. She loved crafts and reading. Her dream was to own a bookstore where she could constantly read. When not reading, she was crafting; crochet, painting and much more. Her favorite though was creating costumes. Dayla loved to sing, especially in the many congregations of the Churches of Christ she has been a part. Currently she is a member of the Grand Ecore Road Church of Christ in Natchitoches.
Dayla’s victory over her disorder came Tuesday, April 21, 2020, when she left this broken body to go to heaven in the arms of her loving Savior, Jesus, and her Holy Father.
She was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Oscar Page.
Left to cherish her memory include her parents, Richard and Karen Hale of Natchitoches; brother, Rick Hale of Jefferson, Texas; maternal grandmother, Melba Page of Ringgold; paternal grandparents, Travis and Frances Hale of Coushatta; uncles and aunts, Tim and Holly Page of Natchitoches, Scott and Sandy Hale of Mansfield, and Susan and Wayne Barry Hunter Jr. of Gilmer, Texas; and a number of cousins, other relatives and friends.
The family asks that in lieu of food and flowers, make donations in her name to the Natchitoches Humane Society or the Oxalosis & Hyperoxaluria Foundation.
