Pamela Beth Hampson, age 73, passed away on Sunday, January 17th, 2021. Originally from MI, Pam had lived in Leland, NC since 2001.
She leaves behind her daughter Julie Anderson (Donald) of Leland, son Robert Hampson of Wilmington, and her grandson Cameron Anderson. After a long battle over the course of 2020, which she fought with strength and grace, she died in the love and company of her children in her daughter’s home.
Pam was many things to many people. She was a teacher for decades, and a natural magnet for children. Kids approached her wherever she went. Later in life, she assumed the role of Office Manager at her daughter’s company. Finally, in retirement, she cared for her grandson Cameron while his parents worked. She was bold and beautifully blunt. You always knew what she was thinking. She was an incredible mother and Nana, and a faithful and dependable friend. She had a sense of humor that will leave those that knew and loved her laughing for many years to come.
No formal service will be held. Her children will host an intimate dinner at her daughter’s home, as a place and time to share stories and memories. The family suggests that memorial donations be made to either St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, or Lower Cape Fear Life Care.
