Pamela Diane Ammon passed away on June 6, 2018 in Wheat Ridge, Colorado surrounded by loved
ones. She was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer just a few months earlier and underwent three rounds of an aggressive chemotherapy treatment. She fought a hard battle, but her body was unable to withstand the toxicity and harshness of both the cancer and the chemo. She was married for 42 years and is survived by her husband Chris, her son Jason, and her daughter Kimberly.
Pam was born on August 4th , 1955 in Denver, Colorado to John Martinez and Angela Boccaccio. She grew up in northern Denver with her parents and her 6 siblings Valerie, Dolly, Norma Jean, Rebecca, John Jr., and Denell. She was raised in a Catholic household and remained strong in her faith throughout her adult years.
She was a selfless woman who was happiest when she was helping others. She dedicated so much of her life to teaching children. She spent the school year substituting at various Elementary schools in Jefferson County and spent her summer months turning her and her husband’s home into a tutoring center. She played an integral role in so many of her students’ lives and maintained a close relationship with them for many years.
In her free time, Pam enjoyed spending time with her family, especially with her three granddaughters Ansley, Kenzie, and MaeLeigh. She loved to garden and always felt at peace surrounded by flowers, birds, and her pets. She had a warm and positive demeanor that drew everyone in. She could find the good in every person and the positive in every situation even when the rest of us couldn’t.
Pam is deeply missed by so many. She had such a positive impact on so many people throughout her
life. She may be gone, but she will never be forgotten.
Services to celebrate Pam’s life will be Wednesday, June 20 th at 11 AM at Our Lady of Fatima Church preceded by a rosary at 10 AM.
