Pam worked for Kent State University in the custodial department for 18 years and served in the United States Army for 8 years following high school graduation. She enjoyed life and never failed to make you laugh while in her presence. She had a quick wit about her, was the "Queen of one liners", and she told you what she thought when she thought it. She loved tapestries and collecting memorabilia from her travels while in the Army.
