Pamela Jo Marske
January 7, 1967 – January 26, 2019
Pamela Jo (Golik) Marske died on Saturday January 26, 2019. From her birth on January 7, 1967 until her death she was a Spokane area resident. She attended St. John Vianney church and school as a child and her faith sustained her throughout her entire life.
Pamela had an AA degree and was a certified bookkeeper, a certified fraud examiner and most recently a records specialist, redacting and providing police records for attorneys and members of the public.
Pamela loved life, history and travel, especially with her husband and friends via the motorcycle. She loved to combine her love of motorcycling with her love of history by traveling to Indian battlegrounds, the trails of explorers and small historic towns. She also traveled to vast numbers of national parks and monuments. She loved spending time with family, whether it was camping, boating, playing games, or sitting around a campfire.
Pamela would regularly buy food and clothing for the Union Gospel Mission or the food bank, often times calling in advance to find out what they needed, which would prompt her husband to ask why they were buying so many Cup O' Noodles, socks, and toothbrushes.
Pamela is survived by her husband Doug, daughter Renata Samek, son Matthew Samek (Meredy), grandchildren Landin and Lydia Windham, sister Sheila Bechtel (Kevin) and niece Mariah Bechtel. She is preceded in death by her parents, Ed and Bette Golik, of Spokane Valley.
A Celebration of Life will be held on February 6, 2019 at St. John Vianney Church at 11:00 a.m. The graveside service is at St. Joseph Cemetery at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Union Gospel Mission.

Hey Doug, I am so sorry for your loss. I saw Pam at work on a regular basis and she always had a smile to share. I have heard many kind words around work since her passing and she definitely made a positive impact on many of us. God's blessings and prayers of strength to you all. Chuck

Such a beautiful soul I will miss her text messages and talks. She's a true warrior and fought till the end. You my friend have left a stamp on my heart forever and no matter what life hands me I will fight like a warrior like you did. Rest in peace my beautiful soul sister.

My sweet little sissy,
I am in awe of your strength you had to have throughout your life; especially with this last battle. I am sure I would not have been as strong as you were; especially with your great attitude throughout it all. I am so thankful you had Doug with you these past 8 years to share your wonderful life! Kevin, Mariah and I miss you terribly already, but I am so glad you are up in heaven now with mom and dad and pain and worry free! Enjoy paradise....

Pam brought joy, laughter and love to all those around her. She was kind, giving, smart, beautiful inside and out.... the whole package!! I feel truly blessed to have known her and spent some great motorcycle trips with her. She will be greatly missed but will always be in our hearts. This is a photo of the Honey Bears (Shannon, Diane and Pam) on a motorcycle trip to Oregon.
