Pamela was born on Easter Sunday April 5, 1953, in Coshocton to the late Harry Q. and Betty (Dulaney) Arnold; Her dad always said instead of passing out cigars, he passed out chocolate bunnies.

They married on September 3rd, 1971, recently celebrating 52 years of marriage.

Pam spent several years as a homemaker and mother after marriage before working in retail management in California at Wilson’s Suede and Leather and then settling back down in Coshocton to work at Bank One / Chase in West Lafayette for many years.

Pam’s love of her family was without bounds and her time with them was spent on family vacations, sporting events for her children & grandchildren, weekend trips and holiday gatherings. She never missed an opportunity to care for them in sickness, the birth of a grandchild or an excuse to give hugs to those who call her Nana. In her spare time, she loved to quilt with her friends, cross-stitch, reading and riding in her convertible with Ken.
