     Pamela Sue (Morris) Hedstrom, 63 of Rock Falls, passed away on Wednesday, May 15, 2024 at CGH Medical Center following a long battle with kidney disease.

Pam attended Rock Falls High School, and spent many years bowling with the Monday Night Strikers at Blackhawk Lanes. Pam leaves behind a legacy of love. For all that knew her, knew they had a confidant and very best friend; a hand to hold, an ear to listen, and a heart to forgive and love them for who they are.

   She was preceded in death by her mother, Shirley (Slifer) Morris; sister, Peggy Larson; and nephew, Brian Fowkes.
