    So very sorry to hear this. Pam was a good friend, we bowled together and worked for the Robbinsdae School District for many years. We had lunch together with other co-workers and always enjoyed each other’s company. She will be deeply missed. Especially by Mason and Mathew they loved their grandma so much and I am happy that they got to spend so much time with her. Thoughts go out to Melissa, Tim and the boys. Cherish the memories.

    I am so sorry to hear of Pam’s passing. We were in home room together all 3 years of high school. We were good friends. She has been on my mind lately and I wanted to try to find her. My heart breaks for her family.
