Pamela, “Pam,” Mary Phillips (née Hales) of Brunswick, was born April 15, 1947 in Needham Market, a small town in Ipswich, England, during the lovely season of bluebells to the late Leslie and Audrey (nee Bloomfield) Hales. She had instant friends in her brother and sisters, a bond that was strong no matter the miles that would separate them. She began a new adventure in America in 1970 where she put down roots and raised three sons. She was the most dedicated and loving mum to Duane (Jennifer), Darren (Jennifer), and Denton (Amber). She was a doting Grandma/Nana that was there for all the adventures they jumped into: flag football, football, soccer, basketball, piano, robotics, swimming, gymnastics, dance, math competitions, band, serving in the Navy, serving in the Air Force, first jobs, graduations, you name it. She was immensely proud of her family and loved to brag about the grandchildren, Devon (Kelsey), T.J., Jacob, Paul, Mallory, Allison, Matthew, and Ariana. She also had the grand promotion to Great Grandma with the blessing of Raelynn and Ryder. Even her fur grandchildren knew she loved them. She drove a school bus for many years for Westlake City Schools and enjoyed many adventures in retirement. She went on several road trips in America and traveled to Poland all with her best friend and sister Patricia of England. She loved to go home to England to spend time with her brother Graham (Gerri) Hales and sisters Patricia Nunn, Margaret Hedges and Sandy Hales and many nieces and nephews. She had a loving and helping spirit. She was so generous she shared her birthday with a granddaughter. She was always present to lend a helping hand, whether it was helping with tasks, bringing food, or kind words. Her legacy will live on in the example she has set for her sons and grandchildren with helping those you love. She died on January 18, 2021 with family by her side. She was preceded in death by her mum and dad, as well as her sister Pauline Johnson, of England. There will be a private celebration of life for immediate family due to Covid-19 restrictions with an outdoor celebration at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of your choice. The family would love for you to do a kind deed for someone else in her honor.


Timothy Charles Hensley, age 58, of Akron, OH passed away Thursday, January 7th, 2021. Born in Columbus, OH in 1962, he spent the early years of his life in Euclid, OH before moving to Lakewood, OH in his middle school years. He was a graduate of Lakewood High School in 1980. As a child, he loved tinkering with electronics and deconstructing devices to understand how they worked. He took that curiosity and knowledge into his adult life and began working on cars. He became a very gifted mechanic and used that talent until the very end. He would often be able to improvise ideas to facilitate a solution to any of his work and life's problems. He persevered through situations that most would have succumbed to. He loved watching sports, especially the Cleveland Browns and the Cleveland Indians. He was an avid music lover and enjoyed such groups as Metallica, Pink Floyd, Van Halen and Bob Seger. He liked to cook and could create some of the best tasting meals. Overall he was well liked, had a heart of gold and will be greatly missed. He is preceded in death by his parents, Leroy and Patricia (Pierce) Hensley. He is survived by his sister, Lynn (Andy) Bagi, his son, Bryon Cogar, his son's mother, Karen Cogar and her daughter, Hannah Cogar. A private viewing will be held on January 14, 2021.
