She was preceded in death by her son, Adrian Notti; and brother, Dana G. Notti. Pam received her Masters of Social Work from her Alma Mater, Oklahoma University; Boomer Sooner! There, she was an active member of The Anne and Henry Zarrow School of Social Work Club, Phi Alpha Honor Society and The American Indian Student Association.

Pam was the glue that kept our family together. She was fun-loving and had an adventurous spirit; Pam loved celebrating the accomplishments of friends and family alike. She was always throwing parties birthdays, weddings, shower or whatever the reason!

Pam loved to cook – especially Spanish, Italian and Dominican dishes. Her sweet potato pie was legendary. When asked how to make it, she always said, “Just keep adding sugar till your teeth feel like falling out!”

Pam was a Fashionista – she could walk into any store or garage sale and find the gems. She could dress anyone and make them feel like a million bucks! Pam had a way of always making everyone feel welcome, even if she just met you.

Pam is survived by her mother, Joan D. Notti; father, Frederick and stepmother, Gail Notti; brothers and sister-in-law, Dario and Cherry Notti, (Dana G) and Rose Notti; Dino and Jane Notti; sister, Kim Notti; 17 nieces and nephews; and 14 great-niece and great-nephews, including her very special great-niece, Kayanna Clark, who was like the daughter she never had: a little girl after her own heart and whom she FaceTimed every single night. A celebration of life for Pam was held on Oct. 27, 2016 in Anchorage.
