Pamela Monica JACKSON

Pamela Monica Jackson

Dec 15, 1959 – Dec 4, 2016

Mother – Daughter – Friend

Pam passed away Dec 4th after living with the cancer leukemia for more than a year. She was at home with friends at her side as she’d wished. Although there is much sadness in her passing, this comes after what Pam felt was one of the best and most appreciated years of her life and that we should all take solace from that.

Pam is survived by her husband Ken, mother Gisela, aunt Ingrid, cousin Christopher, Ken’s father Ken and stepmother Lenore, brothers-in-law Michael and Patrick and their families, predeceased by her daughter Kimberley, father Wolfgang, uncle Heinz and cousin Roy.

Pam was born to German immigrants Wolfgang and Gisela Tandecki, growing up living in Vancouver. It wasn’t until her marriage to Ken that Pam became a true global traveler, starting with moves around Alberta before moving with Ken and Kimberley to the USA, China, England, Egypt and Russia, then eventually visiting all seven continents, including Antarctica. Those experiences shaped her views on the realities of our world and helped make her more truly appreciative of being able to settle and build a wonderful life here on Salt Spring Island.

Those global experiences also made her feel incredibly lucky this past year, even on the darkest and toughest days. Pam felt she was afforded some of the finest and most compassionate medical care that could be offered, from the BC cancer clinic to the Lady Minto Hospital and the extended support network beyond that. The family feels indebted on a very personal level for all those who helped support and care for Pam.

In her memory, Pam asked that you help the Salt Spring Library or your local library by making a donation of any kind. A celebration of Pam’s life is being planned for early in the New Year. Details of that gathering will be announced at a later time.
