Born on March 12, 1948, in Los Angeles, Pamela Marie Lassiter passed away unexpectedly on February 21, 2015, just a few weeks prior to her 67th birthday. With a father in the Air Force, Pam traveled extensively with her Mother, Father and two sisters, and lived in California, Arizona, New York, Kansas, Nebraska, and Germany. Pam graduated from Folsom High School in 1966, and attended the University of Maryland (at both the Munich, Germany and Maryland campuses) and CSUS Sacramento, obtaining a B.S. degree in psychology. Marriage took her to New York again, and then to Oregon, where her son James, the light of her life, was born. For the majority of her working career, she was a budget analyst for the Sacramento County Superior Courts, prior to moving to Orange County to live near her son, James Lassiter, where she managed the Disaster Preparedness Programs for the Orange County Superior Courts until retirement. Pam retired about four years ago and returned to Folsom. In retirement, she most enjoyed spending time with her son, James, and his wife, Staci, and two granddaughters, Vivian and Audrey, who live in Atlanta. She was also an avid reader, volunteering time at the Folsom library, and was a member of the Folsom Women's Club. Pam had a very big heart for family and friends, and a profound love for animals and the ocean. Besides her son James and his family, Pam is survived by sisters and brothers-in-law, Jackie and Rob Long, Candy and Dick Harper, and parents Bruce and Eve Bradfield. A Celebration of Pam's life will be held at the Green Valley Mortuary, 610 Coloma Street, Folsom, on Friday, March 27, 2015 at 2:00 p.m.
