Obituary of Pamela Kay Stiverson

Pamela Kay Stiverson (Pam) was born in Iowa city on April 6th, 1959, to Donald and Joan (Ware) Stiverson, along with siblings Tammy and Eldon. Donald and Joan divorced and later he married Annette (Ann) bringing Carroll and Donna from her previous marriage. Donald and Ann together had Michael. She entered into peace at her home surrounded by friends & family on July 18th, 2020. Pam was raised by her grandparents due to Don being in the service. Pam was a fun-loving child, who would tease and fun around with her siblings. She started school in New Market Iowa until transferring to Clarinda Iowa for extra help in Special Education. Pam never knew an enemy she loved everyone and wanted to be friends. She helped her grandmother in the kitchen with the meals, cleaning and helping prepare food from the garden. One of Pam’s favorite things to make was apple dumplings, and another was making gravy. Her grandmother also taught her how to make granny squares for an Afghan. She loved several small handcrafts to help pass her time. Adult coloring was one of those as well as playing cards and dominoes. Pam loved going to the football games but hated picking up things after the games. Cleaning up the football field area was something they did every game night with their grandfather. She loved being able to go to her Dad and Moms home during the summer, and spending time with her brother Mike. Mike was her joy, and she loved helping him do things and always held his hand even when he may not have needed it. Her favorite hobbies were, collecting anything Elvis Presley, dancing and singing in the choir. Since coming back home to Clarinda in 2017 Pam became an active member of the Shambaugh Church Of God where she insisted on cleaning the Church (because she said “I know how to do that very well Pastor Willy!”) She also took part in Christmas programs, teaching the little children, working in the kitchen at youth camp for both the children and teen camp, and was a part of the S.C.O.G. Women’s Ministries. Her main goal and the love of her life was being Aunt Pam to all the children. Never having any of her own she became Aunt Pam to all the children around. They were her pride and joy. She is preceded in death by her parents, grandparents, sister Donna, Brother Carroll and many other family members. Left to cherish her are her brother Eldon & wife Brenda of Red Oak IA., sister Tammy of Shenandoah IA., brother Michael & wife Kim of Texas. Many other family members and friends.
