Herbert, Pamela (Frantz) 67, of Blacklick, OH passed away peacefully at home with family on January 2nd, 2021 after a recent cancer diagnosis. Pam was born on November 29th, 1953 in Columbus, OH to the late Donald and Lois (Schweitzer) Frantz. She graduated from Walnut Ridge High School in 1971 where she was a Highland Lassie. She went on to receive her Bachelor's Degree from Capital University in 1975, where she was a member of the Alpha Delta Chi sorority. She also earned her Master's Degree in Communications from the University of Central Florida in Orlando the following year. Pam spent 42 years in the direct sales industry, including time at Tupperware International and The Longaberger Company, where she excelled as a sales leader and trainer to many. As well, she consistently gave back to her community as a volunteer to Special Olympics and mentor to Tri-Valley High School students. She retired in 2016, and then became a substitute teacher in the Gahanna-Lincoln school system, which brought her immeasurable joy over the last few years. As a dedicated mother of 3 boys, she also lived an incredibly full personal life. She was a loving mom, and passed on more traditions than any daughter-in-law can possibly keep up with! (daughter-in-law is writing this) Music was a passion that she attempted to pass down to her sons, enjoying playing her baby grand piano, but none of them bothered to learn to play, not having the patience for this stuff. Aside from her parents, she is preceded in death by her beloved son, Michael, and her nephew Brian Doll. She is survived by two sons, Chris Herbert, of Orlando, FL and Andy (Sarah) Herbert of Blacklick, the most loved grandsons, Michael, Patrick and Connor, siblings and their spouses Pete and Cathy Doll, Donald and Susan Frantz and Jeff and Stacy Frantz, and nieces and nephews. And always the countless numbers of her sons' friends to whom she will forever be Momma Herb! Her enthusiasm, smile, bright personality and positive energy impacted many throughout her life and will be dearly missed. Calling hours will be held Saturday, January 9th from 11:00 - 1:00 at Jefferson Country Club in Blacklick in the banquet room. A private family service will follow, per her wishes. Online condolences may be sent to www.tobiasfuneralhome.com. The family is asking that in lieu of flowers, a donation is made in her name to a charity of their choice.

I am very sorry to hear of Pam's passing. While it has been over 20 years since we worked together I recall the energy, enthusiasm and passion that she brought to whatever she did. My thoughts and prayers to the family and those closest to her.

It has been many years since I last saw Pam, but she made a lasting impression. When I joined The Longaberger Company in 1999, Pam was larger than life in the sales field. She was dynamic, engaging, and, quite frankly, one of the reasons I loved the job I did there. As a sales field leader, she knew the industry and her team and she was an invaluable resource when it came to guiding both the training and communication teams in putting together resources that the sales field would like and use.

My deepest sympathy to her boys and their families. Your mom was amazing.

I meant your mother thru Longaberger when you boys were little. I only saw her nervous one time, and that was when one of you played the national anthem on your guitar. She was the most positive person. May you find peace. Jane Cravens

Thoughts and Prayers for the family. So sad to see this...I got to know Pam when I was in direct sales with The Longaberger Company. I got to know her even more when with Direct sales with The Lindt Chocolate Company. Such a dynamic Lady that shared her passion and skills with so many. I know she will be missed.

Chris and Andy-I am so sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. Pam was one of the best leaders I had the pleasure of learning from. Her enthusiasm and spunk will always live on to many that knew her. She was a great mentor and loved her sons the most!

Never a Christmas goes by that i don't remember Kinder Key Caroling with the Frantz family. Every member so warm and welcoming. Way too soon gone, Pam packed an awesome lifetime into her years on earth. No doubt in my mind she is organizing groups and singing with the angels. My deepest condolences to everyone.

I worked with Pam for several years at Creative Memories in St. Cloud MN. Those of us that met her on her first day will always remember her purple hair. She introduced herself by saying, 'Yes, it's purple!' She even offered to give anyone the dye numbers in case we wanted to be as colorful as her! 😁
But my favorite memory will always be 15 years ago when she gifted me with my furry son...a pug, of course, named Bucky. I updated her every year on his birthday and at Christmas. She always replied with pearls of wisdom above and beyond the oohing and awing over how cute Bucky is!
You all have my condolences for your loss. Hold tight to the good memories as they will get you over the bumps.
Take care of each other.

As an executive trainer along with her son, Chris, for the memory-keeping company Creative Memories, Pam inspired countless Consultants with her infectious smile and sense of humor. She will be fondly remembered as the 'gal with the purple hair.'
