With fondest memories of Pam, we send our most heartfelt sympathies.
I am so sorry to hear of Pam’s passing. She was one of my close friends in the 60’s when I lived in Urbana and worked at Grimes. She attended my wedding to my husband Chuck, who she attended high school with. I have fond menories of Pam and her love of life, her family, and her pet dogs. I know she stayed close friends with Linda Lowe which is so fortunate for both of them. Lufe takes people to many different places, but I never forgot my Urbana Ohio friend. God Bless and Keep You In This Difficult Time. RIP Pam
We like to believe that when we lose someone close to us they still live through us and give us strength. The time we have spent with those we’ve lost makes them part of us. Pam will be greatly missed.
