She worked for the Board of Education throughout various counties in West Virginia as either a teaching assistant, or a School Bus driver. Over the years one of her favorite jobs was driving the tour bus for the Ace Whitewater Rafting Adventure Company of Oak Hill, WV. She loved the mountains of West Virginia and taking long drives through the countryside with family and friends.

In life, our friends are often thought of as the family we choose for ourselves and as such, her family wishes to acknowledge the special bond and friendship “Mamaw Pam” had with James Rudd, Tim Ketterman and their children Chase and Trent Rudd. Her family would also like to extend a special “Thank You” to the ICU staff of Charleston Area Medical Center Covid Unit. No services or viewing will be held. Cremation by Wright Funeral Home and Crematory of Philippi, WV. At a later date, the family plans to hold a Celebration of Pam’s life near the New River Gorge where we invite family and friends to attend and bring a note with a special memory of Pam so that it may be created into a keepsake for her daughter and sons.
