Pam leaves behind what it means to give with no expectation. No matter how often you spoke to her, how often you got together with her, she would be there for you no matter what. She put love above all else.
As a person, Pam had her likes and dislikes just like any other person. Don't leave your dishes in her sink, and don't make her cook or do landscaping. However, when her husband Stan brought home a riding lawnmower... that changed her perspective on lawn work, especially on a warm sunny day.
More than almost anything, Pam loved to have her hair brushed. It was her avenue to relaxation which she talked whoever she could into this task. As a teenager she would even pay her sisters to do it! And then there was food, she loved what every good American loves, a nice, melty grilled cheese sandwich and if that wasn't available her next choice... Mexican food. It all could only to be topped off with her favorite, a cold Labatte Blue Light.
Pam was a 200+ bowler and played in a league for many years. She enjoyed playing games like Sudoku, Gin Rummy and computer games. More than anything she loved times when the family was all together, especially the holidays, most notably the annual Christmas party. And Halloween... well, it was guaranteed that she would be dressed up to the nines!
Cher and Shania Twain were favorites in her music genre and Pam loved the song "These Boots Are Made for Walking," by Nancy Sinatra. She was a fan of her TV daytime Soaps and nightime shows like, Chicago Med - Fire - PD, NCIS, Law & Order and Touched By an Angel.
Pam grew up in Rochester in the Greece area her whole life and attended Athena High School. She started waitressing when she was just 16 years old at the Harvest House Coffee Shop. For nearly 30 years she worked as an executive assistant at Kodak for the director of architectural and engineering services. She met Stan who was an engineer at Kodak and they later married in 1988. They share four children and eventually were blessed with four grandchildren.
Pam's husband Stan and her family were the most important thing in her life. Even as the kids were becoming adults, she still asked for a text when they got where they were going (this included her husband and siblings). She remembered everyone's birthdays and special events (and made sure no one else forgot either). She simply was a kind, caring, positive and patient soul who lovingly put up with Stan's jokes. Loved by all, Pam leaves a legacy of giving her care to everyone without expecting anything in return.
