"Pam was a warm, thoughtful, gracious, outgoing, spirited, and fun-loving presence in the MBC community from the day she and Jim moved to Staunton in 1964. She had a knack for making everyone feel appreciated and befriended. All of us who had the good fortune to know her will miss her," said MBC President Pamela Fox.
