SOUTHWICK-On Saturday, February 29, 2020, Pamela F. Owens of Southwick MA, lost her battle with addiction and suffered a fatal heroin overdose. Her beautiful soul is now free from the gripping addictions and mental illness that shadowed her glowing light. Though our hearts are pained and our sorrow weighs heavy, we remember and celebrate this beautiful, vibrant, kindest-hearted, hilariously-funny human who loved us deeply and was a gift to the world.
Pam’s love of family always directed her path. She was a caretaker to us all - family, friends, animals, and plants. Pam loved to learn, cook, and do anything outdoors including camping, fishing with her nephews, kayaking with her brother, and creating legendary belly laugh moments at every holiday gathering.
Pam was at her happiest as a student, feeding her natural curiosity and her core desire to more deeply help others.
Pam is predeceased by her father Spencer E. Owens, her brother Frank Owens, and her grandmother Agnes Dominici.
She leaves her partner Kellie Wilbur-Lynch of Chicopee, her mother Barbara L. Mahoney of Southwick, MA, her sister Stacey Gravanis and her husband Dino of West Suffield, CT, her brother Michael Owens and his wife Antoinette of Monson, MA, her niece Justine Dominici and her fiancé Keith Crowling of Portland, Maine, her nephews Christopher Rubeus and his wife Danielle of Fitchburg, MA, and Paul Earnest of West Suffield, CT, her aunt Frances Dominici of West Suffield, CT, along with many other family members and friends.
A private family service to celebrate Pam’s life has been planned.
Avalon Life Celebration Center & Cremation Services, LLC 691 College Hwy., Southwick, MA is assisting the family with arrangements.
