Pam was born Aug. 2, 1945, in Princeton, the daughter of Howard and Ruth (Strouss) Brandenburg. She married Ronald Lohman on Aug. 1, 1964, at the Hillsdale Methodist Church. They shared 52 years of marriage. Pam worked at the former Landuit’s Lake from 1960-1974. She also worked on the farm with her husband Ron and sold Tupperware and Country Crafts. Pam loved being a member of the Erie Christian Church and found her 16 years as a high school youth sponsor most rewarding. Between them they served as deaconess, Sunday school teacher and Helping Hands.
She enjoyed entertaining friends and family, playing cards, working puzzles, crocheting, making crafts and church activities. She cherished their 25 years wintering in Mission, Texas, and gathering with her family at the Lighthouse Cove in the Wisconsin Dells, fishing, barbecuing and enjoying Lake Delton. Most of all, Pam loved her family and being with them.
