She spent many years working as a food service manager. She enjoyed working with the public, and made many great friends.

She also enjoyed spending Saturday nights with her family where they cooked dinner, played games and her grand kids would perform skits for her. We all know that one of Pam's favorite things to do was shop. She always had a great sense of style that everyone adored.
