Pamela Jean Fr . Hansen, 58, of White City, died unexpectedly following a brief illness at Providence Medford Medical Center. She joined her mother on Mother’s Day, May 13, 2012. She was born May 15, 1953 in Lewiston, Idaho to Reba Kinard and William Fry.
Pam moved to the Rogue Valley in 1955 but lived in Southern and Northern California and in Phoenix, Arizona before settling in the valley in 2001.
She was crowned Miss Clementine in 1971 in Siskiyou County as their beauty queen. She had many interests, but her favorite activity was feeling the wind on her face while riding with her husband on his Harley. She loved her dogs, Shasta and Cookie. One of her many joys was working in dialysis as a patient care technician for 10 years.
Those who knew her enjoyed her larger than life personality and infectious smile. She was so full of emotion, she lit up any room the moment she walked into it. Her booming laughter, fierce loyalty to family and friends, her insurmountable love for her grandchildren, her dedication to God, loving nature, sense of humor and adventurous and theatrical spirit will be remembered.
She is survived by her husband of 24 years, Carl Hansen; sons, Jason (Erinn) Fisher, Gary Hansen, Charlie (Tracie) Hansen and Frank (Anna) Hansen,; five grandchildren; siblings, Marjorie Delzell, Debra Bishop, Michelle Hewitt, Billy Fry, Allen Fry and Michael Gundlach. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Rory Gundlach.
A celebration of life was held May 18 at Harvest Time Fellowship, Gold Hill.
