Pam Roberts, LMP, passed away August 29, 2020, in Bellingham, Washington at the age of 72.
She was born in Victoria County, Texas, the only child of Lorene Elizabeth (Green) and Charles Elee Roberts, Jr.. She earned a B.S. in elementary education from the University of Texas, Austin.
Pam made her home in Bellingham for more than forty years. She was known by many for her commitment to and great skills as a massage therapist, Reiki Master, therapist, emotional and body worker.
Pam was deep, quick-witted and funny. She had a sense of play and impishness that continually amazed and delighted those she was with. She enjoyed a wide range of musical genres and loved to dance and play games with friends. She will be remembered for her direct and honest communication. Her friends enjoyed her ability to carry on deep discussions for hours at a time.
Her career in body/mind work was filled with passion; helping others was her calling. Pam was a volunteer caregiver during the AIDS crisis. In later years, she gave free massages to those struggling with cancer. She was the first to help with donations for raffles, auctions, or other events. Helping others was what drove her, fulfilled her, and gave her sustenance. Pam’s intuitive nature helped her connect with people from many walks of life and provide them with empathy and compassion.
She always seemed to have a cat in her life. Monet, the beautiful tortoise shell with piercing green eyes, was her special companion for the last 16 years.
Pam’s strong spiritual commitment helped her to accept the dementia that was slowly overtaking her brilliant intellect. The cause of her death was ultimately congestive heart failure. She is lovingly remembered by her friends, Kalish, Carol and Ethan, her large social circle, and the caregiving community.
Pam’s friends would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at Alderwood Park Health & Rehabilitation for the loving care they provided.
