Pamela L. "Sister Pam" Bumgardner, 57, of Southport, died Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014, at SECU Hospice House of Brunswick in Bolivia.
Sister Pam was born Jan. 19, 1957, in Harrisburg, Ill., daughter of Lorene Bolander and the late Bill Hooten. She was the director of Tiny Tots Day Care for many years. Sister Pam was a member of Lighthouse Pentecostal Church and was a great servant of the Lord, always putting the needs of others before herself. One of her greatest joys in life was being caregiver to her aunt, Pastor Betty McKendrie and Sister Eulene Lee who everyone knew as "Me-Maw." The joy of her heart for the last five years was spoiling her grandchildren who called her "B." She was preceded in death by a granddaughter, Kenly Hope Bumgardner
