I had the pleasure of meeting Pam Through a college friend who worked with her. We had a blast on a trip to Mexico. She also visited me in Maine once. Truly a lovely person. My condolences to her family and friends.

Pammie was my beloved step-sister from the time I was 8 years old. We went to Yarmouth Elementary and later D-Y. We reconnected in 2014 and we became so, so close. I could not have imagined it would be so short a time. I adored Pammie and she will forever be in my heart. I am sure she is a bright star in the cosmos. She was a wonderful woman. She is also survived by her brothers Peter and John Canning, her sisters Margaret Canning English and Barbara Canning Lagana of Roveredo, Italy and her brother Robert Wilkinson Canning of Wilmington, Mass. She will be forever missed by all who knew her. I will miss her immensely.
