Pamela was born July 20, 1951 in Niagara Falls, NY to the late Lewis and Betty Chaney. She had a wonderful sense of humor and was filled with kindness and fun. Pamm graduated from DuBois Area High School, class of 1969. She attended the Robert Morris Junior College. In her younger years, Pamm appeared on the Clark Race Dance Show, a local production similar to American Bandstand. A member of the Volvo Club of America, Pamm served as the Secretary of the Northern Virginia Chapter of the VCA. She often attended the Import Auto Show, and was voted Ms. Import Auto Show. She moved to Washington DC in 1971 where she worked at George Washington University in the Dean of Students and Housing Office and as the manager of a graduate students' apartment building. While in the DC area, she volunteered for many years with the Animal Welfare League of Arlington. In 1993, she was employed by the National Association of Convenience Stores in Alexandria, VA, eventually retiring in September of 2016 as Director of Member Services for NACS. She moved to Southport, NC in September 2016 and quickly acclimated to her retirement community. Enjoying her morning coffee at the waterfront in Southport, she felt blessed to be living in such a beautiful peaceful place.
Survivors include her sister Janine Johnson and husband Bob of St. James, NC; a step-nephew Kevin Johnson of DuBois, PA; many other aunts, uncles, and cousins; and her niece-dog Subie.

So many memories, so many laughs, and more than half a century of friendship - in many ways you still are and will always be in my life. Beatlemania, Tom Rush, beading, our attempts at being a rock n roll band, the chicken suit, the apple cake recipe, the Rockton Ridge Runners, the vampire and other fun stuff from seventh grade - the reminders will always be there. My thoughts are with Janine and Bob, and all of Pamm's friends who will miss her.

I was sooooo sorry to hear of Pam's passing. I had not realized how sick she was. I did get to talk to her at our class reunion in August and she hid her illness well. I know how close you were and will keep you in prayer. Pam was a wonderful person.

My deepest sympathies to Janine, Bob and family. Your love for Pamm was deep and your tender care of her was the greatest gift anyone could give. I’ll be keeping you in my prayers as you move through your grief. Keep your thoughts fixed on the promise we have been given - to reunite with our loved ones in the presence of the Lord.
Peace be with you.
