Obituary for Pamela Randolph Nettune

Pamela Randolph Hook Nettune passed away on July 12th, just shy of her 76th birthday, surrounded by her loving children.

Pam loved everything about life. From her morning cup of coffee, to a good crumb cake, to her daily devotions, she found joy in every day. She cherished her time in Ocean City, New Jersey, where she spent summers and made lifelong memories with her parents and extended family, her harbor views where she enjoyed the porpoises and the manatees from her home in Vero Beach, Florida, and especially time spent with her children and grandchildren.

Born in Chester, Pennsylvania, she was raised by her parents, William Lee Hook and Ellen Randolph Lyons, and her grandmother, Edith Olivia Witherspoon White ("Minna"). She graduated from Chester High School with too many honors to name. Among them, a top honor by the Sword Society for her service, willingness to work, organization, responsibility and dependability. She was certified in lifesaving by the American Red Cross, a Girl Scout, a varsity cheerleader, a flautist in the band and treasurer of the student council. She also played an active role in the church singing soprano in the choir throughout her entire life. Her faith was steadfast and at the core of her being. She read the Bible daily, attended church religiously. Her outer beauty could not compare to the beauty of her soul.

A graduate of Penn State University in 1966 with a Bachelor of Science in Education and a proud Kappa Alpha Theta, she was a devoted teacher who worked in varying capacities at Lincoln-Hubbard Elementary School in Summit, Bedwell Elementary School in Bernardsville, The Peck School in Morristown, and William Annin Middle School, Ridge High School and Tree House Nursery School in Basking Ridge.

She was proud of her heritage as a descendent of Founding Father of the United States, John E. Witherspoon.

Her self-proclaimed greatest achievement, however, was her family, especially her three children: Deborah Nettune Fowler of Harding Township, Bradley Roger Nettune of Florham Park, and Scott Randolph Nettune of Chatham. She adored her children, their spouses and her grandchildren like no other. She especially enjoyed spending time teaching her grandchildren, reading them books, Bible stories or sharing stories from her childhood. One of her greatest gifts was her nurturing spirit. Her back rubs were famous as were the songs she would sing us to sleep. Deeply rooted in tradition, she mastered family gatherings with no detail left unattended, and passed down family recipes with a flair for Pennsylvania Dutch cooking.

There was always an air of refreshing innocence about her, a wholesomeness that permeated her personality. She was blessed with dear, loyal friends and was passionately committed to them. She loved to dance, laugh and have fun.

She is survived by her beloved partner, Bill Blomberg of Vero Beach, Florida; her brother and his wife, Dr. and Mrs. William Hook of Exton, Pennsylvania; her three children and their spouses, Deborah and Jason Fowler; Brad and Julieanne Nettune; Scott and Nicole Nettune; and her 12 grandchildren (#13 on the way), Grace, Cannon and Clark Sittig; Jamie, Brady, Brendan and Paige Nettune; Bennett, Lara and Baby Boy Nettune; Jake, Nicholas and Colin Fowler.

A private funeral service will be held at Liberty Corner Presbyterian Church on Sunday, July 19. She will be laid to rest at Birdsboro Cemetery in Pennsylvania.
