I first met Pam through my mom (Veral Peterson) then I got to see her again at the Sandy Costco where she trained before the West Valley Costco opened. She was very gracious and kind. It was a loss for Costco when she had to quit.

Pam and I have been friends for a very long time. Not only did we work together for 22 years but we share so many life experiences with each other. We were there for the ups and downs of each other life and I will always treasure our friendship. Jeff and I have enjoyed lots of fun times with Pam and Steve. We laughed a lot and these are the things I will always remember. I know that Pam loved you all so much and you will miss her. So will all her friends. Please know that our thoughts are with you. Love Jeff and Kay Ross

I worked with Pam for several years in the accounting department at Philips and she was such a great person. I am sorry I wasn't able to keep in touch with her after she left. She will be missed by many.

I worked with Pam at Philips some years ago. She was such an upbeat and nice lady who always had a smile and a happy thought. I'm so sorry to hear of her passing. May God give you peace at this sad time.
