Born in Kansas City, Mo., on September 3, 1937, she spent summers in Sister Bay, with her grandparents. In 1954, she moved to Sister Bay, with her parents, Max and Carol Fletcher, who relocated the family there after purchasing Hotel du Nord. Like many in her family, she was known by her middle name.

After college Pam moved to San Francisco. She and her husband owned and operated Image Makers Plus, a commercial photography business, for many years. She was also an elementary school teacher for several years. Pam was very creative and enjoyed art. Her hand-made greeting cards always brought smiles to family members. She was an accomplished photographer with a camera always at hand. Pam, a warm, loving, kind person with a good sense of humor, made those who knew her or came in contact with her feel comfortable and accepted. She was a special mentor to her grandson Charles and her nephew John.
