Robin Hall, 51, known for her work directing the Sequim High operetta and other plays, is recovering in Bremerton following bypass surgery.

Her son Danny, 23, one of seven children, said his mother went to the doctor for trouble breathing on July 31 and later learned at the hospital she was having a mild heart attack.

Tests revealed she had artery blockages leading to open heart surgery and six bypasses on Aug. 7 at Harrison Medical Center.

Danny said his mother is resting in the ICU and is expected to make a full recovery but she likely will remain in the hospital through the week.

Hall remains on a ventricle assist device to help relieve some of the pressure on her heart so she can heal faster.

“Even though it sounds pretty terrible, (the process) is fairly typical that all of this is happening,” Danny said. “We were surprised to hear about six bypasses though.”

To help relieve some of the financial burden off of his parents, Danny started a Gofundme web page at gofundme.com/RobinHall with a goal of $6,000 to pay for medical bills and medications.

“We need to help remove the stress of what the future might hold,” he wrote.

As of Aug. 10, they raised nearly half of his goal in four days.

Jeff, her husband and a medical biller at Jamestown Family Health Clinic, is staying in Bremerton with Robin during the duration of her stay.

Throughout the year, Hall is involved in many community events and groups.

In the school year, she works for the Sequim School District as a paraeducator and Jamestown’s Indian Education program. In the summer, she works with its summer youth culture program. She also has delivered papers for the Sequim Gazette for years.

She began acting in Sequim High School’s operetta “Oliver” in 1978 as a freshman and was elected Sequim Irrigation Festival queen in 1982.

Hall began working behind the scenes in Sequim High School’s plays in 1994 and took on directing duties in 2011 after former director Christie Rutherford retired.

She recently revitalized the group Peninsula Family Theater and offered “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” in July.
