“aka Special K”
March 6, 1959 – October 27, 2013
It is with sadness that I announce the passing of my wife and soul mate Pam, known to many in the West Boundary as Special K. Pam passed away suddenly at the age of 54 in our home in Midway where she loved, was loved, is still loved and very much missed.
Pam was born March 6, 1959 in Chelsea, Massachusetts, a daughter to Elbie Bernice (Tina) and David Johnathon Coker. She is predeceased by her father.
She is survived by Pat, her loving husband of ten years, her daughter Bettina Gentile (Gary II), her four beautiful grandchildren Cheyenne (Miguel Africa), Gary III, Isabella and Arianna, her mother Tina, sister Debbie (Mark), brothers Billy, Michael and Robby, godson Matthew Scott Tracy as well as many nieces and nephews and countless close friends from coast to coast and beyond.
Pam’s life was blessed with the birth of her first great-granddaughter Tamia Maria Africa less than a week prior to her death.
Pam graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Arts degree in June 1990.
A remembrance of Pam’s life will be held on November 17 at 2 p.m. at the Rock Creek Fairgrounds Pavilion. As an expression of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Boundary Women’s Transition House, Box 181, Grand Forks V0H 1H0.
Arrangements entrusted to Graham Funeral Home, Oliver, BC. Condolences may be sent to www.grahamfh.com .
