Obituary of Pamela Jean Buck
Pamela Jean (Matshekowske) Buck was born in Detroit on May 8, 1945, the eldest of four children of Fredric J. and Gertrude E. (Witte) Matshekowske. She lived in Detroit and Dearborn Heights all her life except for 1-1/2 years of her husband’s military service. She graduated from Cody High School where she studied business skills needed in the pre-computer era, including typing, filing, bookkeeping and shorthand dictation. In her early work she used those skills at AAA, Air India, Engineering Industries and other. When her children were born, she stopped working until they were in school and then only accepted jobs she could leave for the summer. She evolved into group travel sales and other sales fields. Later in life, she put her artistic abilities to work in the Floral Design Center of English Gardens and at other florists. She stopped working to assist her parents and aunt in their late lives and later assisted her husband and son in their businesses. Most of Pam’s life was filled with love, happiness, and good health. Pam married Phillip Larry Buck in 1964 and their marriage continued until her death. She loved her immediate and extended family, especially her two children, three grandchildren, siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and their offspring. She had many long-time friends and acquaintances including her “twin” sister Andrea. She grieved the losses and remembered those who passed before her. She loved things that were visually beautiful, especially flowers and butterflies. She created beauty through several crafts, interior design, and floral arrangements. She loved cars that were fast and fun to drive. She loved the beach. She was a highly skilled shopper. And, she loved golf. Pam began playing golf following her 40th birthday. A friend invited her to join a league and she played in that league each week of the season for 35 years. Some friends from that league played in a second weekly league and she joined them also. Pam was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Fredric, his wife Gail (Little), and her sister Debra. She is survived by her husband, Phillip Larry Buck; her sister, Kimberly (Matshekowske) Worth, and brother-in-law Douglas Worth; her children, Kelly (Buck) Denton and Craig Buck, their spouses Charles Denton and Denise (Stockel) Buck; her grandchildren Alexander Denton, Brandon Buck, and Ryan Buck; her nephews Joshua Worth, Jacob Worth, Jeremy Worth, and their families.
