Pam was born Dec. 5, 1947 in Post, Texas to the late Edna Mae (Pierce) Owen and Benjamin Lloyd Owen. She graduated from Post High School and Tarleton State University with a Bachlor of Education and a Master’s Degree in curriculum. Pam married Billy Joe Hall, Oct. 5, 1966 in Post, Texas. He preceded her in death on Feb. 19, 2011. She retired from the Newcastle School district as a reading specialist. Pam was a former member of Memorial Christian Church in Graham, and Christian Women’s Fellowship. Pam worked hard and had many roles in her life-daughter, sister, wife, mother, student, teacher and cake decorator. Her favorite role was being Mama Jo to her grandkids. She was proud of all five of them. A close second was as a teacher. She had passion for education and she felt elated when her students found their talents in her classroom. She created a classroom that would grow her students’ mind and was also a safe haven for them. She had a Heart for Jesus and we believe she is joyously reunited with her first loves, Joe and Todd.
Survivors include; daughters, Dana Burgess and husband Sim of Graham and Amy Shackelford and husband Ryan of Fort Worth; grandchildren, Elizabeth, Ben and Becca Burgess of Bunger, Grayson and Dalton Shackelford of Fort Worth; brothers, Timothy Owen and wife Trussha of Fluvanna, Kim Owen and wife Lu of Snyder, Rodney Owen and wife Julie of Lubbock; sister-in-law, Sherry Owen of Abernathy; also surviving are numerous loving nieces and nephews.
Pam was preceded in death by a son, Todd Hall, brother, Benny Owen, and in-laws, Ruth and Buddy Hall.
