Pamela Beryl Bloxom 1943 — 2014

Pamela Beryl Bloxom

Pamela Beryl Bloxom (née Hazard), the most amazing woman, wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, of Kamloops B.C., was taken from us, October 2, 2014.

She was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, October 14, 1943, to Leonard and Mary Hazard (née Ackerman). Pam is survived by her husband and soul mate Garnett Ray Bloxom whom she married on August 26, 1961. Still together for over 50 years of marriage, their love is eternal.

Pam is also survived by her daughters, who were also her best friends, Wendy Henning (Duane), Brenda Garvey (Peter), Donna Bloxom (Cory). Pam was lovingly known as Granny to seven grandchildren: Sean, Samantha, Chelsea (Bill), Tanner (Kiara), Carson, Jorde and Colton. She was also adopted as Mother, Granny and Aunty to many, many more.

Pam was the oldest of six siblings: Patricia (dec), Dennis (dec), Wayne (dec), Margaret and David. She grew up in Maillardville B.C., and graduated from Queen Elizabeth High School in 1961. After marriage, she and Garnett lived in many cities within B.C. before settling in Kamloops in 1978.

She was a long-time community member of Westsyde in Kamloops, and together with Garnett owned the Westsyder Pub. The Pub is home to a community of its own; the regular stomping grounds of many; a place, as all places, where Pam was loved immensely.

She and Garnett were adventurous together; they lived in the moment, always making new memories in the many places they visited throughout the years. However her favourite places were their beautiful home in Westsyde, where she loved to entertain and host during the holidays, and the cabin, located at North Barriere Lake. It’s the setting for countless memories and happy times with the countless friends and family who visited. The more the merrier; everyone was always welcome.

Pam loved to golf, and was an active member of the Dunes at Kamloops. In her younger years she enjoyed many activities including slo-pitch, curling, skiing, both on snow and water. Cooking was her passion, whether it was a meal for ten or one hundred, it made no difference; their door was always open.

To describe Pam, Mom, or Granny is simple: she was pure love. She was inexhaustible kindness, never ending energy; if she stopped moving it was for a very brief moment or to share a memory with the people she loved. Selfless, and a friend to everyone who met her, Pam was always positive and found the good in everybody she met; she was loved by all; Self-described as THE luckiest woman in the world, her family meant everything and more to her.


A Celebration of her life will be held Friday, October 10, 2014 at 11:00 am at the Calvary Temple, 1205 Rogers Way, Kamloops B.C. with Chaplain Mary Widmer officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the B.C. Children’s Hospital in Pam’s honour.
