Pam traveled her peaceful journey home on Friday, Aug 2, 2013 @ 2:40 p.m.

Pam was born in Bussey, Iowa on Dec 2, 1946, the first-born and only daughter of 5 children born to William "Bill" and Jeanette (Jones) Bennett. After graduating in 1965 from Ranum H.S., Westminster, CO, Pam attended Parks School of Business, receiving her Diploma in 1975.

A certified Phlebotomy Technician and Associate Member of the American Society of Clinical Pathologist, Pam shared her many talents and loving heart volunteering with numerous health fairs throughout Colorado and the Front Range.

A "One-of-a-Kind" woman, Pam embraced every moment of every breath. Her strong spirit and positive attitude allowed her to live an independent and full life. With her selfless nature Pam naturally put others first, giving away her last dollar to someone who "needed it more", taking care of the less fortunate.

Pam's strength, independence and fighting spirit repeatedly pulled her from the clutches of death, shocking family, friends, even her medical team, saying, "I'll decide when my journey's over, thank you very much!"

In the end, Pam gave the greatest gift of all, lessons in life and the honor of witnessing, embracing and sharing in her incredibly beautiful and peaceful journey.

Pam, words cannot express the bittersweet emotions left in our hearts. Your incredibly hysterical and contagious laugh, unique and truly your own, will always resonate to those fortunate enough to experience it! You brought sunshine to the dreariest of days, making lemonade out of lemons.

"Until we meet again over the Rainbow Bridge"

A joyful celebration of Pam's Life will be held Friday, September 27, 2013 at 3:00 pm at Ft. Logan National Cemetery, Denver. We will continue the celebration with family and friends at Pam's favorite restaurant, Olive Garden, 5380 S Wadsworth Blvd Littleton, CO 80123.
