Pam loved her family!! Her grandkids were her pride and joy. She enjoyed spending time with them anytime she could. Favorite memories were watching thunderstorms from Pop's shop, Nana's light, showing the babies the moon in the sky, and just playing at the house in Nana's rags.
In Pam's 33 year career, she started as a teller and worked tirelessly to retirement as the Operations Officer at First American Bank. She loved her "girls" and was the BEST supervisor as they say.
Pam's hobbies include reading books from her huge library collection. Some of her favorite authors include Steven King, Dean Koontz, Anne Rice, and John Sanford. She also loved doing crosswords, search and finds, and Sudoku puzzles. She could dance her heart out too. Anywhere you found her, you would find a radio playing music at all times. She loved dancing around her large kitchen with her husband, kids, and grandchildren. Friday nights were game nights at the Moreau house. She has passed that love on to her family. Rummy, Canasta, 10,000, Skip-Bo, and Uno. The remainder of her weekends, she could be found on the back of their Harley Davidson. Many adventures were found while traveling the states on the bike.
Pam was a founding member of the Winged Riders Motorcycle Club. She also was the driving force behind the many rallies, toy runs, food drives, and monetary donations for locals in need.
Mom loved her baby, Free-duh!! If the puppy couldn't go, Nana didn't go. That's just the way it was. If you ever saw Mom without her dog, she sure didn't stay long. They were inseparable.
She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Ronnie and Jimmy Parrish, and a son, Jacob.
Survivors include husband, Jimmy, of the family home. Sons Jamey Schwiger, wife Selena, and Michael Melton. Daughters Brandy Wolf and Taryn Moreau, husband Dan. Grandsons Wesley Stone, wife Lindsey, Bryton Schwiger, Jacob Martinez, and Jax Short. Granddaughters Adrianne and Deanna Martinez, Kaylee and Presley Florez. One great granddaughter, Skylar and many nieces and nephews.
Pam will be remembered for her heart for others, her tremendous strength, and her BEAUTIFUL smile. May she rest in Paradise, forever.
