Pamela Kay Rose Bollinger was a pillar of unwavering love and wisdom for her family and friends. She passed away on Saturday, September 25th, in Springfield, Oregon at the age of 65 after a short and tragic battle with COVID-19. She was born in Austin, Texas on May 5th, 1956, to Donald and Mable "Bea" Rose.
Her father, Donald, was a proud member of the US Air Force which meant the family moved often and lived in various states. In 1974 Pam joined the rest of the family in Clovis, NM. The Clovis/Portales area is where she raised her family and called home.
Pam was soft-spoken and gentle-natured, with a compassionate heart and a creative mind. She was a proud American and a fiercely dedicated mother, wife, grandmother, aunt and sister.
She cherished those she loved, and loved in an unconditional way that seemed almost too pure for this world. The impact she had on those fortunate enough to know her will not be forgotten, and the memories she left behind will be cherished and celebrated by those closest to her for decades to come.
She is preceded in death by her son, Nathan, mother, father, and her nephew, David.
She is survived by her husband, Lari Bollinger, her children, Rachel (Ben) Reyes and Christopher Jaynes, her siblings, Patsy (Carl) Block, Peggy Kline, Terry (Martha) Rose and Donnie Rose, and her grandchildren, Macie Rose, Nathan Rose Jr., Tyler, Taylor and Joshua Reyes, nieces and nephews, James Block, Tiffany Fine, Michelle (Ryan) Twining, Emily (Dan) Mock, Katrina (Luke) Jaramillo, and Vincent Rose, great nieces and nephews Jake and Chase Twining, Joshua Carter, Andrea, Eva, John, Thomas and Samuel Mock, Sophia, Liam and Eloise Jaramillo. Pam also leaves behind a loving extended family in the Ohio area.
A private celebration of her life will be held in her honor.
