I want to express my deep sorrow to Pam’s family . I am so saddened to hear of her passing. She was my first cousin and I have wonderful childhood memories of our families getting together. A favorite memory was from 2011 when she visited my ailing father at Park Vista Assisted Living in Youngstown, Ohio. I hadn’t seen her in years and was so struck by her resemblance to my mother. We all had a wonderful time catching up. She was so kind, warm and loving. It felt like all the years melted away in her presence and we were kids again

Pam was our pioneer EMS secretary of Robinson Memorial Hospital and Portage County. Always encouraging and motherly as I began my EMS career with classes at RMH. She remained a friend as she moved on with her family and farm. Always a hug and smile over the years. A earthly angel that I will endear and miss. Hugs and Love to the family.
