Pamela S. Graham, 62, of Clarksburg, died unexpectedly on Thursday, May 26, 2016, from injuries she received in car accident in Pickaway County.
She was born on May 30, 1953, in Columbus, the daughter of the late William E. and Frances A. Norris Palmer.
On Dec. 30, 1993, she married David M. Graham, and she was the love of his life.
Along with her husband, David, Pam is survived by her two step-children, Caleb (Sarah) Graham of Chillicothe and Julia (Duke) Leisure of Frankfort; four grandchildren, Hoyt, Mack, Garitt and Ally; her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Solon and Verlla Graham of Clarksburg; and two brothers-in-law, Paul (Anne Scaperoth) Graham of Worthington and Mark Graham of Wooster.
Pam was a 1971 graduate of Eastmoor High School and she received a BS degree in Natural Resources in 1989 from The Ohio State University.
She worked in the development section of the Salvation Army and had also operated Owl Hill Publishing. Pam was proud of the fact that she was the first female that was hired as an over-the-road driver for Weyerhauser Inc. She often commented about the times she would drive into a lumber yard and everyone would stop what they were doing because a woman was unloading wood.
Pam was an avid lover of horses and was an accomplished equestrian. She not only loved horses, she loved her dogs and other animals. She and David spent many times together hunting and fishing. Her love for the outdoors was also shown with her love of flowers. Our world has lost a very good steward of our environment.
In keeping with Pam’s wishes, cremation will take place. No calling hours or funeral service will be held.
The family request that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be sent in her name to the Wildlife Diversity Fund, Ohio Division of Wildlife, 2045 Morse Rd., Building G, Columbus, OH 43229.
The Ebright Funeral Home of Frankfort is serving the family. Those wishing to sign Pam’s online Book of Memories may do so at www.ebrightfuneralhome.com.
