Pamela, “Pam,” Mary Phillips (née Hales) of Brunswick, was born April 15, 1947 in Needham Market, a small town in Ipswich, England, during the lovely season of bluebells to the late Leslie and Audrey (nee Bloomfield) Hales. She had instant friends in her brother and sisters, a bond that was strong no matter the miles that would separate them. She began a new adventure in America in 1970 where she put down roots and raised three sons. She was the most dedicated and loving mum to Duane (Jennifer), Darren (Jennifer), and Denton (Amber). She was a doting Grandma/Nana that was there for all the adventures they jumped into: flag football, football, soccer, basketball, piano, robotics, swimming, gymnastics, dance, math competitions, band, serving in the Navy, serving in the Air Force, first jobs, graduations, you name it. She was immensely proud of her family and loved to brag about the grandchildren, Devon (Kelsey), T.J., Jacob, Paul, Mallory, Allison, Matthew, and Ariana. She also had the grand promotion to Great Grandma with the blessing of Raelynn and Ryder. Even her fur grandchildren knew she loved them. She drove a school bus for many years for Westlake City Schools and enjoyed many adventures in retirement. She went on several road trips in America and traveled to Poland all with her best friend and sister Patricia of England. She loved to go home to England to spend time with her brother Graham (Gerri) Hales and sisters Patricia Nunn, Margaret Hedges and Sandy Hales and many nieces and nephews. She had a loving and helping spirit. She was so generous she shared her birthday with a granddaughter. She was always present to lend a helping hand, whether it was helping with tasks, bringing food, or kind words. Her legacy will live on in the example she has set for her sons and grandchildren with helping those you love. She died on January 18, 2021 with family by her side. She was preceded in death by her mum and dad, as well as her sister Pauline Johnson, of England. There will be a private celebration of life for immediate family due to Covid-19 restrictions with an outdoor celebration at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of your choice. The family would love for you to do a kind deed for someone else in her honor.
