Ask a Nurse: In memory of Nurse Pam’s Aunt Jean

Pamela is an RN, MSN/Ed.

Pamela is a mother of 6 amazing children ages 11 to 24. She is a nurse educator and loves to travel overseas to work in medical clinics and teach health-related topics to schools and communities. She has been married to her best friend, Steve, for 29 years. She has many different interests including reading, writing (NOT arithmetic!), baking, teaching, and spending time with her family. She lives in central Pennsylvania with her husband and two youngest daughters.

Today in place of ask a nurse we would like to honor Pam’s aunt who passed. Pam took care of her aunt at their home so her last days were as pleasant as possible.

We at the Madame Deal family send our love and thoughts to Pam and her family. We sent you a special gift to remind you that every day of life should be celebrated.
