Dear Family of Pam. Our sincere condolences to you at this time of sorrow. Pam was a friend of ours from Jr. High and High School, and we were good friends with Pam and her first husband after school as well. Pam was in our wedding and we still have those pictures. She was such fun to be around, and we cared for her very much. We lost touch after a while, as people do, but we have fond memories of her that we carry in our hearts! God bless and comfort you. Carol(Osterhouse) Wotring and Don Wotring

Dear Family. My heart is heavy with sorrow and wishing the family sincere condolences. I of course was a square and round dancer and good friend of Pam and Merwin. We shared many happy memories of conventions, camp out dances, Foxy Squares and club dances and just camping through the years. It is hard to see these good friends leave us, but she is in a better place now and we are thankful for that. May God bless you all during this difficult time. Lori Way

With sympathy to your family. May your faith get you through this difficult time.
Phil and I danced with her at Foxes Squares and Grand Paraders before he passed.
Again, so sorry for your loss.

I am at a total loss for words. I am going to miss her so much. All the years at MDOT, the shopping trips, for 33 years….My deepest condolences to Merwin, Amanda, the kids and grandkids, Bruce, Phyllis and Tim.
