Pamela G. (Sponnick) Wallin, 59, went to be with Our Lord on Aug. 9, 2012 at St. Mary's Hospital of Rochester, Minn., after a long battle with illness.
Pam was born on Jan. 23, 1953 to George and Georgann (Broman) Sponnick of Virginia, Minn.
She graduated from Virginia High School and went on to nursing school. She was an RN at Miller Dwan now Essentia Health for over 30 years. She was married to Thomas M. Wallin of Cloquet, Minn., for 37 years. They had two children Thomas Wallin Jr. and Katie Wallin. She has one grandchild Lilly Wallin. Pam lived her life with courage and dignity. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She touched everyone she met with her love, charm, grace and wisdom beyond her years. Words cannot define how much she meant to everyone, and how much she'll be missed by all who knew and loved her. We were blessed to have her in our lives.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Georgann; and one sister Anna Johansen.
She is survived by her husband, Tom; children Tom Jr. (Nora) and Katie; one granddaughter, Lilly; her father, George Sponnick; one sister, Sandy Lynott; and one brother, Jeff Sponnick.
We would like to thank our family and close friends for all the support they have provided us during this difficult time, as well as the staff of the Mayo Clinic, and St. Mary's of Rochester for the wonderful care they provided to Pam.
VISITATION: 2 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012 until the 4 p.m. memorial service in Nelson Funeral Care in Cloquet, followed with refreshments in the fellowship room. See the family online guest book at www.nelsonfuneralcare.net.
