Pamela J. Frenia, 71, of Guideboard Road died at her home Wednesday May 31, 2023.
Pam was born on September 10, 1951 to Edmond & Martha Frenia. Pam was the 4th. of seven children.
Pam attended Peru Central School and graduated in 1969 and was a member of the Future Business Leaders of America and was inducted into the National Honor Society. Pam excelled in all she endeavored and had the ability to be a real "People Person" and would always be able to work with and guide anyone in being successful.
Pam relocated to Rhode Island for a short time and then returned home and had a career of over 25 years at Georgia-Pacific where she earned the respect of anyone she worked with. She excelled in her career as a Quality Supervisor and was dedicated to achieving the high work standards she had set for herself. Pam's career in quality control continued as she accepted a position at Nova Bus where she worked faithfully until her death. Pam once again gained the love and respect of management and employees as well. Everyone knew if you had a question or needed something, Pam was your go-to person. Her sense of humor and dedication was unique to her and everyone felt comfortable and enjoyed being near her. The past years, Pam was able to work at home and accomplish so many things and she would always work more than the normal workday. We cannot thank Nova Bus enough for their kindness and respect shown to Pam and her family in this time of sorrow.
Pam never married as she truly devoted her life to caring faithfully for her Dad, Mom and older Brother. We feel confident that Dad & Mom came to bring her home so they could once again be together. Pam chose to never marry but she was blessed with many nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews. She was always an easy touch when they needed something (again the go-to person). Andrea, Mandy, Brandon, Andrew, Kyra, Emma, Kaelyn, Randy (Bubba), Kevin, Shane, Scott, Dylan, Elizabeth, Henry, Hazel, Alek, Reese, Payton, Danielle, Kelly, Nikki, Afton, Vala and so many others were always in Pam's generous heart.
Pam had a great love for her sisters Pat, Debbie, Sherry and Brenda and knew they were there for each other. As sisters they would share books, stories and have an occasional lunch to catch up.
Pam formed a special bond with her brother Gary and her sister-in-law, Kathy. There wasn't a day that went by that they did not see or talk with one another. You could always count on Pam stopping by on her way home from work or a phone call when she worked at home. She looked forward to Sunday supper at Gary & Kathy's to be with the family.
Pam enjoyed her trips to the Casino with Gary & Kathy and her sisters. We never won much but had a great time. Pam's other passion (along with spending time with her nephews and nieces) was reading. Her and Pat and Debbie would exchange books to further their enjoyment.
Pam was predeceased by her dad & mom and her oldest brother Gordon along with many loving Aunts and Uncles.
