Hallie was born July 20, 1993 in Denver, CO to Danny Gene and Patricia Ann (Dennon) Anderson. She graduated from Scottsbluff High School in 2011 and attended Austin Community College and WNCC. She was a member of First United Methodist Church in Scottsbluff and Scottsbluff High School FFA. Hallie loved children and animals and had a passion for life. She volunteered with the Methodist Church youth group and Vacation Bible School. She loved fishing with family and friends and being outdoors. She loved to dance and sing. She was always described as strikingly beautiful, but those who knew her knew her as a bit of a tomboy; she was never afraid to get muddy, get down and dirty, and to take care of animals, or hesitate to jump on a go-cart or motorcycle, or some other adventure. Hallie always made everyone laugh.

She was preceded in death by two grandfathers, Theodore Dennon and Thomas Anderson.

She is survived by grandmothers Verna Dennon of Gering, NE and Jean Anderson of Norfolk, NE; mother Patricia Anderson of Scottsbluff; father Dan Anderson of Scottsbluff; sisters: Nicole (Ryan) Pester-Martichewsky, and nephew Ross of Scottsbluff, Traci (Paul) Pester-Cuprisin and nephew Jaymin of Austin, TX and Breanna Anderson, Columbus, NE,; uncles Garry (Kim) Dennon, Windsor, CO, Tom (Chery) Anderson, Bellevue, NE, Bill (Joyce) Anderson, Westminster,CO, and John (Cheri) Anderson, Dallas, TX; aunts: Karen (Dan) Murphy, Scottsbluff, NE and Janet (Scott) Duering, David City, NE; Cousins: Krystal Murphy-Holten, KT (Chris) Murphy-Johnson, Scottsbluff, NE, Sheri Jo (Richard) Waymon, Gary (Leah) Dennon and April (Mike) Moore all of Colorado, and many extended family members.

Hallie came into the world two months early and left it far too soon. It was Hallies's wish to be an organ donor. Over 40 people will benefit from her passing.
