Pamela Eileen Hanson was born on August 26, 1936, in Wayzata, Minnesota to Reginald James and Dorothy Eftemina (Boyko) Jones. Her parents dedicated her to God as a child and, when she became old enough to decide to follow Jesus, she was baptized at an old fashioned camp meeting. Pam attended and graduated from Maplewood Academy in Hutchinson, Minnesota, where she first met Charles. They were in the same grade. Pam attended Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska and the University of Iowa School of Nursing in Iowa City, Iowa, where she became an RN, specializing in Psychiatric Nursing. She always had a listening ear for those who were troubled and a big heart to help wherever she saw a need. Many have treasured the prayers and caring she gave.

Pam was united in marriage to Charles Hanson in Fletcher, North Carolina, at a private ceremony on Thanksgiving Eve, November 23, 1995. On the top of their wedding cake were two little wood ducks - one had a little veil, the other a bow tie.

Pam passed away on March 22, 2012, having reached the age of 75. Pam loved God and was committed to be like Him. She is sleeping until Jesus reappears to waken her. We all long for the day when there will be no more pain, sickness, or death. Pam is greatly missed.

Pam leaves her beloved husband, Charles Hanson; her sister, Dorothea Margaret and her husband, Norval Jones; her niece, Rebecka (James) Jones Nelson and their two children, Freja and Soren; her nephew, Jonathan Len (Kimberly) Jones; her brother-in-law, Wendell (Elaine) Hanson; her nieces: Laurie (Brian) Longhenry; Patty (Roger) Haukos; and Sandy (Greg) Scheff; and her nephew, Dan (Karla) Beutler; and many extended family members and friends.

Pam was preceded in death by her parents and her daughter, Sarah Fillingham.
