Words seem so inadequate in times like these but as we all know, Pam would not want us to grieve for too long but rather she would want us all to remember the good times we shared with her. She loved her God, her husband and family, friends and a good game of euchre. In that order. Spending time with Pam was always a pleasure. Her kindness, patience and inspiration was well known. To honour Pam’s wishes cremation has taken place.
The family will receive friends at the Crawford Funeral Home, 243 George Street, Arthur on Thursday, December 9, 2021 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. A private family funeral service will take place on Friday December 10, 2021.
