Surviving is one son Logan Walter of Fairview, significant other Don Taylor of Fairview, sister Linda Rosecrans of Maquon, three step children; Aaron (Leslie) Taylor of Maquon, Neil (Susie) Taylor of Maquon and Don (Tiffany Willams) Taylor Jr. of Fairview, six grandchildren; Ivory Walter, Austin Taylor, Mattie Taylor, Courtney Taylor, Devin Stowe and Drew Martin, four great-grandchildren; Rhett Stowe, Waylon McDaniel, Ames Laird and Branley Laird, nephew Dylan (Zoe) Rosecrans and two nieces; Kylie Rosecrans and Jennifer (Alex Spencer) Rosecrans and great-nephew Hunter Spencer.

Pam worked for many years at the Canton Daily Ledger and was currently the marketing director for Renaissance Care Center in Canton. She was a member of the Maquon Methodist Church.
Pam was a beacon of light and love. She knew no stranger and touched the lives of so many. Her free spirit, kindness and joy radiated through every room that she entered. Her love for her son never went unnoticed. She has left a lasting impact on all of her friends and family and had fond memories of watching her grandchildren grow into young adults. Most recently, she enjoyed creating memories and forming a bond that her youngest granddaughter Ivory will cherish for a lifetime. Her heart was filled with nothing but joy and love. To say she was a proud mother and grandmother would be an understatement, as they were the center of her world.
Services will be 11 am Thursday, September 16, 2021 at Oaks-Hines Funeral Home and Crematory in Canton where visitation will be from 5-7 pm on Wednesday. Cremation rites have been accorded. Burial will follow services at Maquon Cemetery in Maquon. Memorials can be made to either St. Jude Children's Hospital or the Maquon Methodist Church.

So heartbroken to hear of Pam's passing. I worked with her at the Ledger.. She would always go out of the way to help anyone anyway she could. She would beam talking about her family. I always enjoyed our conversations and could talk to her about anything. I am blessed to have called her my friend. Sending heartfelt condolences to her family. RIP beautiful lady!
RIP Pam , you will be missed ....... Thoughts & Prayers to her family & friends
One of the kindest women I have ever met. Her family and friends are on my heart. I am so sorry :(
My heartfelt sympathy and prayers to the family, May the God of all comfort and tender mercies comfort and strengthen you through this difficult time of mourning. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4
Nanny Pam was like a grandma to me. My first memory of her was sitting up in her office, on her giant iMac, while burning songs to CD’s. My favorite song that she ever played was, Swiddily Bop; she most likely put that song on a 100 different CDs for me. I can remember times when I would walk over to her house, and ask if we could for a ride in her little red BMW. Other times, I would walk over to her house, and we could make lemon cookies in her kitchen. It’s hard to believe that not even three weeks ago, I was sitting right next to her, talking about everyday life. You will be missed Nanny Pam.

So sad to hear about Pam's passing. She was such a genuinely giving person. She lit up the room when she entered. I worked with her at Heartland and considered her atrue friend. RIP.
She was so nice to me when I couldn't find my voice when my dad had passed away. She guided me through a difficult time she will be missed. Lynnette and Sonya

Pam was a Beautiful woman inside and out. She always had a smile on her face, and was so care free. My deepest condolences for her family.
RIP Pam 😪 You were a wonderful Person and I was truly blessed to have met and visited with you daily when I had the Bakery. All of the wonderful Ads you Created about the Bakery were truly amazing too! And even though I shut down the Bakery we kept up the connection when we ran into each other catching up on both out lives. I thank the Lord that I was the one that answered the phone when you called a few weeks ago and talk to you.
Seems I've known Bones my whole life. Only spoke or waved at Pam when leaving the cemetery on my daily walk. Has not been long ago as she was leaving for work, I told her about having my old dog Buckwheat euthanized because of cancer. For her compassion, I will love her IN the LORD forever.
I worked with Pam during my stint at the Ledger. She was so sweet and such beautiful person - inside and out. She will be very missed! My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
Pam was such a sweet lady when she was my sales rep for the ledger. There was never a day that I didn't see a smile on her face. She was full of laughter & joy. Ivory may you cherish all the memories you had with your grandma. My heart is with the family. RIP you will be missed by so many!! Cheryl with CJ Flowers
I had the pleasure of working with Pam briefly a few years ago. She lit a room up with just her beautiful smile. This world will not be the same without her. My sympathies to her family.
