Alba Lou Bennini Hull was born May 17, 1929 in Youngstown, the daughter of Angelo and Bertha Fontenasi Benini.

Abby was best known for being the owner of the Hulls Dairy Queen in Campbell for 37 years. She always had a kind word and a generous heart.

In 2006 Abby was inducted into the Campbell Memorial Hall of Fame for her many donations made to football, baseball, basketball and soccer teams. She also gave to the community churches, schools, kid’s camps and shelters.

Many kids had their first jobs at the DQ. Abby taught them to respect people and to have fun but work hard. Many kids went on to become doctors, lawyers and professionals in various careers.

Abby enjoyed working in her garden, spending time with her family and friends and just relaxing in the sun talking with Douglas, her dog.

Abby leaves to cherish her memory her two sons, John (Geri) Hull and Daryl (Patty) Hull; her grandchildren, Jake Hull and Shannon (Wayne) Dick; great-grandchildren, Jacob, Brandon, Mara and Abigail; a niece, Geri (Ray) Greis and several great-nieces and great-nephews.
