FAIRFIELD, ME--Pamela C. Dyer, 71, passed away on Thursday, November 12, 2015, with her beloved family by her side following a courageous battle with cancer. \r\n\r\nShe was born in Waterville, ME on August 11, 1944, the daughter of Elmer and Lena Pamphrey. \r\n\r\nPam attended Lawrence High School, where she made many lifelong friends. Growing up, she was a cheerleader, and had a love for dancing and teaching gymnastics. After high school, she graduated from the Burdette Business College in Boston, MA with a degree in legal secretary, after which she worked as a legal secretary in Portland, ME and Waterville, ME for many years. Pam worked at Maine Central Railroad for 13 years.\r\n\r\nPam was associated with the Unity Pond Lake Association for 20 years, including spending time as president, and starting the boat inspection system. Pam spent 54 years making memories with her family on Lake Winnecook. Pam enjoyed volunteer work at the Vassalboro Public Library\r\n\r\nPam married the love of her life, David Dyer, in 1986, and they had been together for 35 years. She and David shared a love unlike any other, and a bond that will never be broken or forgotten. \r\n\r\nPam had a sheer love for the ocean, and spent as much time as possible at Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Canada. She possessed an endless sense of adventure, traveling the United States with her husband, and was able to check off many boxes on her "bucket-list". Pam had a talent and a love for cooking, and gardening, and no meal was ever too challenging. \r\n\r\nPam is survived by her husband, David Dyer; as well as her four children, Sherie Cote-Hall, Melinda Nadeau, Michael Cote, and Andrew Genovese. Pam had seven grandchildren whom she has deeply cherished, Paige Cote, Devon Hall, Hannah and Travis Nadeau, Alex Cote, and Samual and Madison Genovese. Her grandchildren have been the light of her life. She is also survived by one sister, Joyce Decker; and one brother, Larry Pamphrey; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Pamela is also survived by her best friend of 42 years, Marsha Massey-Pelletier, who she shared endless laughs and memories with. \r\n\r\nPam never let her battle with cancer take away her strength, dignity, or personality; and if anything, it made her so much stronger. She was a self-less woman who cared so much about others, even when she was fighting such a difficult battle of her own. She had a true love for life, laughing, and enjoying every moment that life handed her. \r\n\r\nPamela and the family extend a very special thank you to the doctors and staff of the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa Florida. Sincere thanks to Dr. Pockinghorn and staff at the Alfond Cancer Center. Thank you to Linda at Maine General Hospice as well. \r\n\r\nServices will be held at the First Baptist Church in Fairfield, ME.

Burial will follow at 2 p.m. at Maplewood Cemetery in Fairfield, ME. \r\n\r\nIn lieu of flowers, donations in Pamela’s name may be made to The LifeFlight Foundation, PO Box 899 Camden Maine 04843 / www.lifeflightmaine.org.
