Pamela Headley Hobert was born March 19, 1953 to Eugene and Velma Headley. Pam’s struggle with the wicked disease ALS is over and now is sleeping in her Lord. Waiting for Resurrection day and seeing her Savior Jesus! In all His glory! Pam passed away May 5, 2019, with her loving husband by her side.
Proceeding her in death were her mother, Velma (Wickwire) Headley, and father, Eugene Headley, and two younger brothers who also died from the same wicked disease, ALS, Wade and Keith Griner.
Pam graduated from Hastings High School in 1971 and married Benjamin Healy. On February 14, 2004, she married Carl A. Hobert, Jr.
She worked as a nurses’ aide at Thornapple Manor through high school and up until she started her family in 1973. Most of her life, she worked at Pennock Hospital in Hastings as a nurses’ aide, and later trained to work as a lab aide and phlebotomist, with further training to reprocess and sterilize surgical instruments in CSR, finally taking the state test for Pharmacy Technician, and worked in Pennock Hospital outpatient pharmacy. Later she studied to become a certified massage therapist.
She is survived by the two loves of her life, her sons, and two daughters-in-law that were like daughters to her. Matthew (Deann) Healy, their children Megan and Austin, and Jason (Abby) Healy and their children Lexi Jo, Paige and Easton, two step-sons, Chad Hobert, and Josh (Amy) Hobert and their son, Howard. Pam is also survived by two sisters, Valerie Donahue (Joe), and Babette (Gary) Roberts. Four brothers, Rodney (Pam) Griner, Tom (Carolyn) Headley, Ronald (Renee) Headley, John (Caroline) Headley and many nieces and nephews.
She is also survived by her loving, faithful husband, Carl Hobert, who lovingly cared for her until the end.
Pam always had a happy smile on her face and loved working with the public. She truly loved people, and loved her Lord Jesus, showing her faith in Him to the end. Pam presently attended the Hastings Seventh Day Adventist Church, a Christian Bible-based church, where she and Carl were baptized in 2005. Previous to that, she attended Wesley Chapel SDA Church and East Pasco SDA Church in Florida, Country Chapel United Methodist Church in Dowling, TVC in Podunk Lake, and Grace Church in Nashville, MI.
Pam requested no flowers, but donations to ALS research. There is no cure for this disease, and her hope is for future sufferers to have hope.
