Obituaries — September 23, 2010


Mrs. Pamela K. Hall, age 50, of Rockford went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, September 14, 2010. She was born in Germany while her father, Allen Sharum, was stationed there.

Pam grew up with her mother and brother in Flushing, Mich. She was a graduate of Flushing Christian High School where she sang in the school choir and worked part-time at Meijer in order to help her family. Pam met Bruce when attending the college-age Sunday School Class at North Park Baptist Church. After a loving courtship that included a visit to Cornerstone College, they were married on October 4, 1980 in Flushing.

Pam loved to be with people and had that social butterfly personality. Her children have many special memories of being part of the events at West Cannon Baptist Church. As a family, they were part of the “fabric” of the church. Pam sang in the choir, was part of the ladies trio, and occasionally sang a duet with Bruce. Even though the children had many directions to go, every Wednesday night and Sunday were reserved for church. Pam was a member of the Home Builders Sunday School class and was honored to have the privilege of leading her family and others to the Lord. Several years ago, Pam rededicated her life to Christ, was baptized, and gave her personal testimony with her husband and children beaming with pride.

“Mema” was the most wonderful, loving wife, mother and grandmother.

Pam is survived by her loving husband and companion, Bruce; children, Rachel Leigh and Patrick McCulloch of Comstock Park, Bruce Adam Hall of Rockford, Ashley Elizabeth and Zach Neymeiyer of Wyoming, and Private Ryan Michael Hall serving with the Michigan National Guard; grandchildren, Madison Rae McCulloch, Bryson Alan McCulloch; and mother-in-law, Mrs. Nancy Kramer. She was preceded in death by her parents, Allen and Gloria Sharum, and her brother, Timothy Sharum.

The service of praise and thanksgiving for the gift of everlasting life through Jesus Christ for Pam was Saturday at 11:00 a.m. at West Cannon Baptist Church with Pastor Doug Crawford officiating. Interment was in Rockford Cemetery. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider West Cannon Baptist Church Choir.

Arrangements were made by Pederson Funeral Home, Rockford.
