It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Pamela Boram, a cherished mother, wife, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She peacefully entered eternal rest on February 2nd, 2024. Born on April 23, 1954, in Anderson, IN, Pam leaves behind a legacy of love and warmth.
Pamela's zest for life was beautifully expressed through her love for road trips and travel, especially with her beloved husband, Steve. One of their favorite places to travel was to Madison, IN. It held a special place in their hearts, and they often found joy in crossing the bridge to Kentucky to visit her cousin, Judy. Their shared passion for music led them to attend memorable concerts with their sister inlaw Melissa, seeing favorites like Aerosmith and Kid Rock several times. Pam's warm and engaging personality extended into her professional life, where she worked in the women's apparel department at Meijer. Through her dedicated service, she not only excelled in her role but also created lasting friendships.
Pam is survived by her six sons: Tommy Vanduyn, Tony Vanduyn, Joey Vanduyn, Shawn Vanduyn, Harley Vanduyn, and their father, her ex-husband, Thomas Vanduyn Sr. Her memory will be carried on by her grandchildren: Paul Darcy, Kalea Kelley, Constance Vanduyn, Blaise Vanduyn, and Charlotte Vanduyn, as well as her great-grandchildren: Kiryn Forehand, Gage Patterson, Hadleigh Patterson, Sophie Darcy, Paul Darcy Jr., and Aria Darcy.
She is also remembered fondly by her niece Holly O'Bryant; nephews: Troy O'Bryant, Phillip Ellingwood; great-nieces and nephews: Caylynn, Makayla, Lilly, Lyric, Jiren, Kai, Jiraiya, and Lucas. Pam's memory is cherished by her brother and sister-in-law, Kevin and Melissa O'Bryant; special cousins Judy and Jeff Austin; and dear friends like Louann Cloud, along with many others she worked with at Meijers.
Pamela is preceded in death by her husband, Steve Boram; sons Alvin Vanduyn and Shane Boram; mother Lucille Holden O'Bryant; fathers Robert Yada and Bill O'Bryant; and sister Penny O'Bryant.
May the love and memories shared with Pamela bring solace to all those who mourn her passing.
Kindly be aware that Pam didn’t care for the word "sorry." In light of this, Tommy requests that when expressing condolences to the family, refrain from using the phrase "sorry for their loss."
