My sincerest condolences to family. I knew Pam in grade school, but we weren't friends. Reconnected when we both worked a the new Pizza Hut in FortMadison. We both transferred to Muscatine Pizza Hut & shared an apartment for a year. I moved back, she stayed. We had some fun times. I'm really sorry we didn't stay in touch. Rest well, Pam.

I'm sorry to hear about Pam's passing. I remember when she would bring me the cars that went into the happy meals. That was always a nice treat. I would stop in and see her at work from time to time. I remember when people started to call her big Pam to distinguish her from the other Pam. I think it had more to do with employment position than anything.
