My deepest condolences to Pat, Ty, Bree. Patrick and the entire Lutz family and her mom, dad and brother. I worked with Pam at Crayola for 20+ years.
We shared so much over the years both personally and professionally. Lots of laughs and some tears. Her biggest pride and joy were her children and husband. They were her universe. Pam always lit up when she spoke about Ty, Bree and Patrick. Such a proud Mom. So strong, such a warrior. One of the strongest women I ever met. Rest in eternal peace Pamma. XOXO

My condolences to Pam's family on her passing. Pam was an absolute joy to work with. Her humor and good nature will be missed. Her compassion and empathy for my wife's cancer will never be forgotten. Even while she fought her own battle she always reached out and I took great comfort from our talks. Rest in Peace Pam.......and thank you.

Pat, I was so sad to hear of the passing of your wonderful Pam. She was a great co-worker of mine at Crayola, where we spoke almost everyday - some work stuff and 'some not'. How much fun we had in Lamaze classes together; I think we laughed more than we learned. It was always a good time sharing in our kids' birthday parties, too. How she loved her Pat, Ty, and Bree. She was a wonderful friend, always laughing and making me laugh, and enjoying life. She is our guardian angel now. I will miss you 'Pammy'. Rest in Peace. Prayers to all!

I am saddened to hear this news and my condolences to Pam's family. Pam and I were classmates going all the way back to elementary school. We never spoke much growing up, but I remember having a great conversation with her at the 25th high school reunion and she was telling me that I should bring my kids out to see the Crayola factory. We never made it there, but I would frequently think about Pam when a Crayola commercial came on TV and wondering if she still worked there. RIP Pam.

I was so saddened to hear of Pam passing. I knew her from the first day she came to Crayola. Our departments worked very close with each other. I remember her planning her wedding, having her children, and before retiring, got to see pictures of Patrick’s wedding. She was a good person, always with that big, beautiful smile and always ready to help. Such a proud momma who always supported her children and would do anything for her family. I had only seen her once since she became ill and she told me of her journey. I remember thinking how very amazing she was. So strong. So brave. So determined. So tough. So ‘Pam’.
Prayers to all of you

My DEEPEST sympathy to you Pat, Ty and Bree. Pam was one special person. We worked together for more than 20 years. Spent a lot of timing talking about our families. She would always share pictures of Ty and Bree. She was so proud of you. Pam never complained when she was ill...she had a spirit about her and always had a smile. She was so inspiring. I was deeply saddened when I heard she had passed. I held on to hope for her. Now she is walking freely with our Lord and I pray His love will give you all strength and peace to get through this difficult time. Prayers and blessings....Tina Fogel Xo
