She was a member of Cocoa Beach Presbyterian Church, DuPont City Presbyterian Church and also attended Belle Presbyterian Church where she was a choir member.

After 31 years of living in Florida, she returned home in 2002 to help care for her mother. Pam was a very caring person and loved doing for others. She loved doing crafts, paintings and working in her yard. She loved the beach and watching old westerns on TV. Her favorite place was Sanibel Island, FL where she would spend hours combing the beach for shells.

She was preceded in death by her husband, John P. Ruf; parents, Charles and Eva McClurg and brother-in-law, Sam Brown.

Pam always had a cheerful hello and a hug for me when we got together at the retirement lunches. Always telling me about the trips you all had taken to the beach or out west. Sometimes lettin me know what was good on the menu. I am so sorry for your loss. Pam was your sister but also your best friend. May the memories you had together bring you comfort and peace.

Dear Kay,
I think of Pam’s smile and laughter when we drove from Ohio to visit for the day. What fun reunions. I remember us putting together the history of our mothers‘ friendship when they were young girls, a friendship that lasted into their golden years. Their friendship brought you and Pam and Bev and I together. I treasure that connection: Eva’s two girls and Maxine’s two girls. Forever.
Love, Barb
