Pamela Marie Smith of Alliance, Ohio passed away on May 27, 2021 at Alliance Community Care Center. Pamela was born on June 11, 1957, in Alliance, Ohio.
Pamela worked at Christmas Home Health, LLC as a Home Health Aide. She was a faithful member and servant of Spirit of Faith Ohio (SOFCCOH). She loved, and I mean….loved crocheting! I think everybody has one of her blankets, scarves, gloves, socks or hats! Or you know someone who does. She also loved to cook and serve dinners for the elders in her Community.
Her first and foremost love though, was Christ! Family was everything to her. What Pamela wanted most, was to have all of her Sisters and Brothers together again, and she was able to accomplish that, one last time before she went home to the Lord. He was waiting to welcome her home with open arms and had a smile on His face. She touched and inspired so many people in the Community. All she ever talked about was how proud she was of her boys! Pamela, Ms. Pam, Auntie, Sister, Pam Bam, Grandma, Momma etc., you will be truly missed as you wait on us to join you! Fly high and enjoy the rest of your life with the man you loved most!
