Pamela Jean Atwood

NEW PORTLAND – It is with great sadness that we write the passing of Pamela Jean Atwood on May 13, 2022. Pam was born on Sept. 7, 1955 to Chandler and Ruth Cates of Anson.

On Dec. 31, 1971, she married Lindy Atwood and they had four children; Cynthia, Michael, Joshua and Jon. Pam enjoyed her life to the fullest by spending time with family and friends, horseback riding, and riding her Harley. She especially enjoyed the past 11 summers spent on Cupsuptic Lake camping and jeeping and this is where she met new friends from across the state and beyond. All through life, Pam put others before herself.
