Doriana Temolo Hall – In Memoriam

It is with great sadness that we note the passing of Doriana Temolo Hall – a loyal and long-time Juggler of Notre Dame.

In her high school years, Doriana was very much a part of student life at Notre Dame, excelling in a number of areas. An Honour student, Doriana was also a talented and dedicated athlete, a vital member of the school basketball and volleyball teams. In addition to this, she was also a keen participant in the school drama program, not only enthusiastically participating in acting classes, but also, in her senior year, brilliantly undertaking the daunting role of Stage Manager in the play Our Town – a part that is challenging for its size and for its needing to be able to be a true stage presence. In light of her academic success and ability to command an audience, it was no surprise that, after graduating from Notre Dame in 1976, Doriana entered the journalism program at BCIT. Nor was it a surprise that, having completed her studies, Doriana became part of the young Global network. There, she enjoyed a truly successful and influential career, rising from Announcer to Newsroom Manager and playing a key role in the launching of the Global National programme. Until her retirement in 2016, she continued to display the same excellence and high achievement level that had become so much part of her persona.

Her marriage in 1984 to her dear partner, Michael, who also worked at Global, resulted in recent years in her being the mother of two remarkable children: Justine and Jacob, both of whom continued their mother’s ability to excel.

Doriana always remained a loyal Notre Dame Juggler. She enrolled both of her children at the school, participated in Notre Dame Alumnae Volleyball games, and enthusiastically supported Alumni activities. More recently, she—revisiting her earlier success in drama—played a main role in the Alumni production of Agatha Christie’s The Unexpected Guest. In addition to all this, Doriana, loyal to the school always, was a Director of the Notre Dame Foundation and Chairperson of the Notre Dame Alumni Association.

Throughout all this, Doriana remained a dedicated wife and mother. In quite recent years, she was thrilled to host the wedding of her son and delighted in her role of grandmother to Mario, Gemma, and Kennedy. Indeed, not surprisingly, her spirit remained strong and vibrant as, while still endeavouring to live life to the fullest, she fought a brave battle with breast cancer.

Although, sadly, she did not achieve her goal of receiving her first Social Security cheque, Doriana was able to look back on an amazing life marked by love, happiness, and success. She will, indeed, be missed by many.

At this sad time, we extend to her family our sincerest condolences and remain grateful to Doriana for all that she gave to her community.
