2B Wednesday, March 12, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter VITAL STATISTICS OBITUARIES Pamela Kay Hooper Pamela Kay Hooper passed away peacefully at home on Feb. 25, 2014, surrounded by her children and other family members following a four-month battle with cancer. The love expressed by her children, Bryan, Riley (wife Summer), Neal, Crystal (husband Jordan) and Eric, in the days leading up to her death was an inspiration to everyone who witnessed it. Pam's niece, Kelsha, was also a great comfort to her aunt in helping her through this difficult time. Pam joins her parents in heaven, Clayton and Joyce Kreth, but temporarily leaves behind her children, cousins, friends, caring ex-husband Allen (wife Kathleen), and two brothers, Steve Kreth (wife Lucie) and John Kreth, a sister, Glenda Herbert (husband Paul), nephews and nieces, LaRell, Kelsha, Emilie, Amie, Steve, Scott, James, Tim, Laurie, Willie, Carrie, Katie, Ronnie, and numerous great-nieces and great-nephews. Pam was born in Portola, on Nov. 17, 1957. The very talented Pam pursued many interests including sewing, jewelry making, aviation, auto mechanics, motorcycle riding, playing the guitar and piano, singing, horseback riding, hiking, crocheting, gardening, making chainmail and stoneware mugs; she even graduated at the top of her class from Heald Business College. But undoubtedly, Pam's proudest accomplishment of all is her five children. Pam is an endowed member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and is very proud that her four boys all served missions for the church, and that all five of her children are also temple endowed. When she died her family found in her wallet a picture of her children and a quote written by her: "If you can teach your children how to feel loved, you have taught them everything." Pam might not have been rich in the way of worldly possessions, but she brought the only thing she could with her when she left; the love of her family. Pam's first grand-baby, Kensey Kay Hooper, will be born in April and will share her grandma's name. Pain's dying wish was for everyone to love one another. She was a great listener and friend and will be missed by everyone who knows her. Arrangements entrusted to Manni Funeral Home, Portola.
