In Loving Memory ~

As we approach the one year anniversary of Pam's passing we wanted to take a moment to honour her.

Pam grew up in Harrop, B.C. where she was an active child always "pushing the boundaries" as she was known to say. She often spoke of fond memories of skating with cousins, swimming in Kootenay Lake, milking the cows and tending to the gardens with her sister and brother on the family's farm.

As a teenager, she rode the bus into Nelson, B.C. to attend high school at L.V. Rodgers and later graduated from nursing school to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN).

Pam and Wayne were married in May 1972 and lived in Hazelton, B.C. where Pam worked as an LPN and Wayne worked for the B.C. Forest Service. Hazelton would be just one of many locations that they would call home until they settled in Williams Lake, B.C. in 1980 where they raised their two daughters.

During this time, Pam worked part-time as an LPN, volunteered at the Crisis & Counselling Centre, and eventually ran a licenced daycare from her home.

Pam enjoyed being an active member in her community. She volunteered at the local elementary school, was president of the gymnastics club, started an adoption support group, and was an avid genealogist. She loved research and solving mysteries of the past for her family and friends - this quickly grew into a passion for helping others discover their own family history.

After Wayne retired from the Forest Service, her career evolved into property management, which sent them moving around the province once again.

From Williams Lake, to Cultus Lake and then up north to Fort St. John and Chetwynd. It was an adventure, just like the early years, but eventually due to health concerns, Pam had to retire and moved closer to family in Dawson Creek, B.C.

Pam was a creative and passionate person, forever looking for her next project. Her door was always open and she was happiest when visiting with family and friends. Pam was a Mom to many. She was loved and will be missed more than she may ever know. In the early morning of Sunday, March 26th, 2023 Pam passed away peacefully, surrounded by family and loved ones, at the Prince George Hospice after a long battle with chronic health issues.

In memory of Pam we encourage you to have a cup of tea with a loved one, to laugh, tell stories and to cherish the moments together.
