She is survived by her husband, Doug Parsells, son and daughter-in-law, Chad and Amy Raunborg, son, Connor Parsells, daughter, Cailey Parsells and grandchildren Castle, Mazzy, and Felix Raunborg. She was preceded in death by her parents, Mary and Wayne Laird and two twin infant brothers. Pam grew up with her brother and graduated from Putnam City High School, Class of 1977 and graduated Draughon School of Business as a Business Machines Specialist in 1979.
Doug and Pam became best friends in 1986. That friendship blossomed into love and appropriate to their lives together, in January 1989 they were married on Friday the 13th in Las Vegas at the Chapel of the Fountains in Circus Circus! When Doug married Pam, she came as a package deal with her son Chad. Together, they gave Chad a wonderful brother and sister. Pam was a devoted wife and mother, always selflessly putting her family’s happiness before her own. She worked as a legal secretary while simultaneously raising her family. Pam / Pamah found unbelievable joy in being a grandmother. She was hands on every day and loved every single minute of it.
Pam brought her smile and easy going nature to all she met. Nothing made her happier than bringing her family and friends together. Her beautiful smile and wonderful laugh brought laughter and happiness to all that knew her. Pam took great pride in all of her family’s accomplishments and loved nothing more than attending the sporting events of her children and grandchildren. Pam was an active participant in church all of her life.
The best gift she gave her family… Her love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus. We rejoice in knowing that she is now in Heaven with her very biggest smile!
Pam cherished every friendship with all her heart. Pam met Cheryl at 16 and it didn’t take long for them to become best friends. So much so that Pam considered Cheryl as a sister. Cheryl Prickett married Phillip Penrod and they were given the precious duty of becoming her children’s godparents. Pam could always count on Cheryl for her to be there through good times and bad. They loved each other’s company and this past year Cheryl and Pam enjoy lunch together often. Pam’s family was not an obligation, they were her friends. Pam had a special connection, friendship, with her cousin Pat. Although Pat lived in California, her friendship with him came easily and continues to be a blessing to her family.
