Pamela Adrian

ADRIAN , Pamela Rae Pamela Rae Adrian passed away at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, Foothills Hospital in Calgary on Saturday, May 8, 2010 at the age of 40 years. Pam was born in Eston, SK on July 21, 1969 to Bob and Ruth McLeod. Pam grew up in the Caron area in rural Saskatchewan. She attended school in Caronport and after a year of college in Caronport, Pam moved to Calgary and graduated from the Foothills Hospital as a registered nurse. She met Allen at Foothills Alliance Church and they were married on January 2, 1993 in Moose Jaw, SK. In 1996 they were blessed by the miracle of their son Zachary and then in 2003 by a similar miracle, the birth of Megan. In 2007, they moved to The Netherlands to embark on a new chapter in their life but in April of 2008, Pam was diagnosed with late stage colon cancer and the family returned immediately to Calgary. After only two months, Pam was admitted to the Rosedale Hospice. Miraculously, six weeks later, Pam was discharged to continue her fight and enrich the lives of others. On Saturday, May 8, 2010, Pam left this world for a better place where we will meet again. Pam is lovingly remembered by her husband Allen, their son Zachary Karel and their daughter Megan Ruth of Calgary, AB. Pam is also survived by her five sisters, Diane, Dawn, Patti, Carrie and Carol and two brothers, Blaine and Barry and their families. Pam was predeceased by her parents Bob and Ruth McLeod.
