At the time of her death, Pam was serving as pastor of Word of Truth DownEast, Jonesboro, and founder of Word of Truth Training Institute, Pam also served as program director for Addison Point Agency, where she enjoyed her many friends and staff. She particularly enjoyed members of the Chartrand family of Addison. Pam had served in many other ministries throughout the years, including teaching Sunday school, directing puppetry, organizing bus ministry, drama, and worship leadership, and so many other services to the body of Christ. She was a passionate teacher of the Christ's love and Jesus' ultimate sacrifice on the cross by shedding his blood for our sins in order that we may spend eternity with him in heaven. Pam particularly enjoyed her new found love of four-wheeling, she also enjoyed woodworking, home improvement projects with Jill, working on her family's genealogy and writing poetry. She will be fondly remembered for her extreme sense of humor, vast wisdom in dealing with those less fortunate, and if you ever had the opportunity to hear Pam's storytelling you would consider yourself very blessed.
