LoElla “Carol” Hall Stapp was born April 1, 1933 at the Hall family homestead, east of Beaver Oklahoma near Camp Creek. Carol was the daughter of Charles W. Hall Sr. and Lillian May (Lile) Hall.

On December 22, 1950, Carol married the love of her life, Doyle Stapp, at the Mountain View country church in Beaver County Oklahoma. After Doyle was discharged from the Army they made their home in Beaver where their two daughters Randa and Sandy were born and raised.
Carol worked at several businesses in Beaver, her main focus was in Banking and she always enjoyed bookkeeping and balancing all accounts to the penny. All the while being a full time wife, and mother, cooking, sewing and teaching her daughters life skills that have served them well.
Carol was a member of the First Christian Church where she taught Sunday School and served as a Deaconess.
After retirement Carol worked full time with Doyle farming and ranching.
Family was always Carol’s love. She always attended her daughter’s, grandchildren and great-grandchildren’s activities being their most supportive cheerleader and always looking forward to the next big event.
