Life Story / Obituary


On Monday, November 14, 2022, Pamela Evonne Howard (Wilson), loving wife and mother of two left this world suddenly at the age of 60.

Pamela was born December 2, 1961 in Holland, MI to Billy and Joyce Wilson. Shortly after graduating from Holland High School, she met Stuart Howard on July 31, 1982. They raised their daughter, Leslie and son Thomas.

Pamela was a dedicated wife and mother, selflessly devoting her time and energy into caring for her family. She had an infectious smile, a genuine laugh, and a kind soul.

Family was Pamela’s passion, but she also enjoyed reading a good novel, crossword puzzles and catching up with friends.

Pamela was preceded in death by her mother, Joyce, and father-in-law, Dale. She is survived by her husband, Stuart and their two children, Leslie and Kyle Hooker and Thomas, grandchildren Chase and Dylan, her father Billy Wilson, her siblings Boyd and Linda Wilson, Paula and Greg Meredith, Nyoka Wilson, father-in-law Roger Howard, mother-in-law Marlene Von Ins, brother-in laws Tim & Vicki Howard, Jay & Connie Howard, sister-in-law Wendy & Dan Humbarger, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be held Thursday, December 1st at The Trestle Stop in Hamilton, MI from 4:00pm until 7:00pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Harbor Humane Society in honor of Pamela who had a love for animals. Arrangements are by Dykstra Funeral Homes-Mulder Chapel.
