Pam was a Christian by faith.  She was a member at the Tallmansville Baptist Church.  Her faith in God provided peace throughout her life and the ability to cope with her illnesses.  Her favorite Christian music group was Casting Crowns and she found comfort in their songs.

She served her community and worked at many local companies, but known for the years at SW Jack, First Community Bank, and Gear Up.  Pam loved to help others and with Gear Up she was able to encourage and help local teens to reach their goals in their education.  Pam spent a few years in Florida working at Kennedy Space Center and made many friends in that area. 

Pam was best known for helping her late father, Tex Edward Walton, in his gun shops over the years and going to gun shows to assist him.  Pam loved the outdoors, enjoyed hunting, and going to Canaan Valley to see the scenery with her family.  Over the last few years, she enjoyed traveling to Florida to spend time at the beach with her son and his family.  Pam was a positive person with a huge heart.  She supported her family in all their journeys.
