Pamela Kay Spaulding


Pamela Kay Spaulding (83) passed away in her home on Feb. 11, after a short and fierce battle with cancer. Her strength and positivity were amazing.

Born in Iowa to George and Eleanor Smith, Pam was an only child and loved her parents and her family very much. In the end, she was home and surrounded by family.

She will be greatly missed by her husband of 64 years, Bill Spaulding, and three children: Richard Spaulding, of Michigan; Sheri Smith, of Colorado; and Mark Spaulding, of Montana. Pam was a homemaker watching over three generations. She had nine grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

She also had the most amazing group of devoted and loving friends.

Pam enjoyed gardening, reading, playing cards, going to Margarita Mondays with “the Ladies,” all the holidays with family and her four-legged children.

There will be a celebration of her life at the Pagosa Lakes Clubhouse on Saturday, Feb. 24, from 5 to 7 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, please give a donation to your favorite animal charity in Pam’s name. She would have rescued them all if she could have.
