Pam Dodge passed away February 11, 2023 with her best friend, her husband Charles at her side.

Pam fell in love with Charles at a young age and they were married on January 19, 1967. Their first son, Bryan, was born on April 16, 1967. Pam was so happy being a mom and wife. Their second son, Brandon was born on August 16, 1973. They had so much fun being a family.

Pam had a green thumb and could grow beautiful flowers and a bountiful vegetable garden. She would preserve the produce for her family. She was a voracious reader, often completing several books in a day. She also loved to raise chickens throughout the years.
