Pamela Morris, Marian Frost
Pamela Dawn Morris, 44, of Baker City, died Oct. 3, 2010, at her home.
There will be a celebration of Pam’s life and a reception from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at the Baker Elks Lodge, 1896 Second St.
Pamela Dawn was born on Aug. 31, 1966, at Baker City to Ken and Carmen Griffith Hill. She was raised and educated in Baker City, graduating from Baker High School in 1985. Pam was well-known in the community as waitressing at the Sunridge Inn (formerly the Kopper Kitchen) and at the Oregon Trail Restaurant.
Pam enjoyed spending time with her family, enjoying the outdoors and hunting, and she loved to fish. She spent hours working in the yard, and she also had a talent for crocheting. She met Mark Linderman in 2001 and they married in 2006 at Las Vegas, Nev.
Pam loved to bake cookies and did so for everyone in town for Christmas. And she enjoyed all of those coffee times she spent with her family and friends.
Survivors include Mark Linderman; her children, Craig Hill, Andrea and her husband, Chris Soderholm, Traci Jorgensen and Brodie Linderman; grandchildren, Silas Gilda and Hunter Hill; her parents, Ken and Carmen Hill; and her brothers, Kurt and Chris Hill.
Her family wished to include this message: “What Cancer Cannot Do: Cancer is so limited, it cannot cripple love, it cannot shatter hope, it cannot corrode faith, it cannot destroy peace, it cannot kill friendship, it cannot suppress memories, it cannot silence courage, it cannot invade the soul, it cannot steal eternal life, it cannot conquer the spirit!”
The family suggests memorial contributions to the Ovarian Cancer Society or Mountain States Tumor Institute through Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home, P.O. Box 543 Halfway, OR 97834.
