Pamela K. Winter 1952 - 2024

Pamela K. Winter was born April 17, 1952, in Wilmington, Delaware, to Charles and Jo Winter. She passed away from ovarian cancer March 5, 2024, in Portland.

She grew up in the Midwest and Los Altos, California. After high school, she came to Linfield College, graduating in 1974 with a degree in Sociology. In her senior year she interned with the Yamhill County Juvenile Department. She worked for Washington County and received her master's of social work from Portland State. Her career then took her to Cedar Hills Psychiatric Hospital and finally to Fred Meyer stores.

Pam will be remembered for her love of art, passion for animals, vivacious personality and quick wit. She enjoyed her family and many friends. Her special interest was painting, often animals, rural scenes and portraits done from photos.

Those remaining to mourn her include her sister Patricia (John) Wiggin  of San Jose, California; sister Sheryl (Gary) Rueter of McMinnville; niece, Julia Wiggin (CA); nephews, Kevin Rueter of Bend, Derek (Jessica) Rueter, and Jeff (Jean) Rueter of Portland. The next generation are Aerilynn and Briella Rueter of Bend, and Jack and Jasmine Rueter, and Charlotte and Dylan Rueter, all of Portland.

A family gathering was held on March 9 in Pam's home and there will be a celebration of life at a later date.

Oh, what a grand, funny lady she was. We will miss you forever, Pammy.
