Pamela Hennig

Fenton, MI - Pamela (Snyder) Hennig, 62, of Fenton, MI passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, at the Arbor Hospice in Saline, MI. Born in Plainfield, NJ, Pam was the daughter of William Snyder of Parksley, VA and the late Elizabeth Snyder. Pam was raised in Spring Lake Heights on the Jersey Shore, graduated from Manasquan High School, and attended Brookdale Community College. While her husband Rick pursued his medical career, Pam established homes and many friendships in New Brunswick, NJ, Philadelphia and Allentown, PA, and Frederick, MD before settling in Fenton, MI in 1994. Pam's life was shaped and fulfilled by her tremendous faith. Pam gave her life to Christ in 1974, converting to Catholicism in 2004. She was an active member of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Fenton. Her Bible Studies, caring friendships and her generosity of her time and talent to St. John's Outreach have enriched many lives. Pam's favorite and perhaps most memorable role, however, was that of "Mrs. Blue Shoes," Fenton's beloved storyteller at the Fenton Free Library where she entertained and entranced so many children. The City of Fenton is planning on constructing a garden that will surround the "The Librarian" statue in front of the library, dedicated to "Mrs. Blue Shoes". Pam was a Jersey Girl through and through and loved visiting the Jersey Shore every summer where she would walk the Ocean Grove boardwalk and catch up with family and friends. Everyone knew her as especially kind, thoughtful, spiritual person. Pam is survived by her beloved husband and children, Dr. Richard Hennig of Fenton, MI, her daughter Katie of New York City and her son Patrick of Fenton. She also leaves behind her much loved and close-knit family including her father Bill and her brothers and sister, Billy (Anne), of Mount Horeb, WI, James (Anna) of Nashville, TN, John (Emily) of Spring Lake, NJ, Laura (Peter) Salerno of Oakhurst, NJ, and her sister-in-law Karen Pentz, of Shark River Hills, NJ, as well as many nieces and nephews, grand nieces and nephews, cousins and many, many, great friends, all of whom will miss her tremendously. A Mass in celebration of Pam's life will be offered at 11 AM Monday, May 21, 2018 at St. John the Evangelist Church, 600 N. Adelaide St., Fenton, MI. Interment will follow at St. John Cemetery. Visitation will be from 2-4 and 6-8 PM Sunday at the Sharp Funeral Homes, Fenton Chapel, 1000 W. Silver Lake Road, Fenton, MI where a scripture service will be held at 7 PM Sunday. Visitation will also be held from 10 AM - 11 AM Monday at the church. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. John's Outreach Program or the Fenton Children's LIbrary.
