June 19, 60,
Pamela Jackson Benton, 60, went to be with her Lord on Friday, June 19, 2020.
Pam was born in Fort Payne, AL, on December 20, 1959 to the late Fain and Frances Jackson. She was married to the love of her life, Richard Michael “Mike” Benton for 34 years. Pam worked as an Orthodontic assistant in Goldsboro, Greenville and Kinston for many years. She decided to further her education and graduated from Liberty University with her Master’s in Business Administration. Pam joined her husband as a partner in the family business, Benton & Associates Land Surveying and Mapping, P.A. She was a faithful member of The First Pentecostal Holiness Church in Goldsboro, NC.
Pam was most known for her infectious smile and sweet spirit. She served the Lord faithfully throughout her life in various ministries but her true calling from the Lord was found is Titus 2:3-5 “likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind and to be subject to their husbands so that no one will malign the word of God.” Pam was an inspiration to many setting the example of a true believer in Christ as she walked through years of declining health due to ALS. As God has welcomed her home, she will forever live in our hearts.
The family will receive friends on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the narthex of The First Pentecostal Holiness Church followed by a service to celebrate Pam’s life at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary with Rev. Bill Rose officiating. A private interment for the family will be on Wednesday morning at Wayne Memorial Park.
Pam is survived by her husband Mike of Goldsboro, her sister, Connie Rainey and husband John of Colorado Springs, CO and her brother, Tony Jackson and wife Marie of Dudley.
Flowers are welcome or memorials may be given in her memory to The First Pentecostal Holiness Church, 1100 The First Church Road, Goldsboro, NC 27534.
For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me that day; and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. II Timothy 4:6-8
