the hands of Jesus surrounded by her loving family. Pam was the loving mother of two, doting
grandmother to three and great-grandmother to five children who loved spending time with their

quite a bit before settling in Pace, FL. She attended Milton High School and then Pensacola
Junior College. She may have been small in stature, but her personality and heart for others
was vast beyond her five-foot frame.
Pam was never one to sit still for too long. She loved to work and continued to do so until her
health did not allow it. ln her life, she found purpose in a few different careers. She was a
cosmetologist before transitioning to bookkeeping, her career for the ten years she lived in New
York City.
When she moved back to Pensacola, she worked for the Northwest Florida Planning Council.
Her last job was in home health care. Being able to help her clients maintain their independence
brought great joy to her life, as did the friendships she made in this careen

Church.
