Pam spent the majority of her life in the Cedar Falls area. Earning certifications in Reki, she owned and operated Hammers Shiatsu Clinic.

Pam was also an accomplished martial artist, earning her 6th Dan in traditional Naha-Te and sharing her knowledge with numerous students.

Pam’s greatest love, especially after Terry’s passing, was her pets. She enjoyed the company of several dogs and cats over the years.

Pam also had close personal friends who saw her through good times and bad, they had each other’s back. The family would especially like to thank Cara Briggs Farmer, Linda Dirlam, Katherine and Gary Fagersten for their friendship and selfless sacrifices.
