PAMELA MARIE RICALTON
October 28, 1960 – June 19, 2017
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Pamela Marie Ricalton. She was a loving daughter, sister, aunt, mother and friend who will be greatly missed.
Pam is survived by her parents Jack and Lucy Flottorp of Port Coquitlam, BC, her sister Susanne (Tim) Hawker and their children Lexie and Cameron of Port Coquitlam, BC, sister-in-law Barb Flottorp and her children Nikki (Jason) Fowles and Ryan Flottorp of Kamloops, BC. Pam also left behind her children Ashley and Kevin Ricalton of Kamloops, BC. Pam was predeceased by her loving brother Dan Flottorp.
Pam was a cheerful woman who had the greatest laugh. She loved singing, listening to music and golfing. Pam had such an internal joy that could brighten anyone’s day. You could hear her infectious laugh a mile away.
Pam was a wonderful primary teacher who obtained her masters degree all while raising her family, working fulltime, and unaware that she was in the early stages of Alzheimers. Unfortunately, this once very vibrant woman had to be admitted into the Overlander Residential Care Facility in January of 2011. Pam remained there until her passing at the very young age of 56.
We would like to thank the amazing staff at Overlander for their constant care, love and support for Pam and our family. We are truly grateful and forever thankful to know that she was so well taken care of.
“There is one thing Alzheimer’s cannot take away, and that is love. Love is not a memory – it’s a feeling that resides in your heart and soul.”
Our memory of you will never fade and we will never forget you. We love you and miss you dearly. We know that you and Dan are now at peace and will take good care of each other.
Please join us on Saturday, July 8, 2017 at 1 pm at the Desert Gardens in Kamloops, BC for a “Forget-Me-Not Tea Party” in Pam’s memory. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society of BC would be appreciated. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.comPrint This Obituary & Condolences
