Pamela Jane Fuller, mother, grandmother, artist and life-long resident of West Hartford, Connecticut, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, September 14th, at the age of 75. Pamela was born on January 27, 1945. She graduated from Rockford College, Rockford Illinois (1967) with a BA Major in Theater Arts/Early Childhood Development.
Pamela was preceded in death by her father, Dr. Loftus Walton, and her mother, Alice Fuller Walton, as well as by her beloved step-mother, Beverly Walton. She will forever be remembered by her children, Tamara Gresh (Noah), Aaron Rashaw (M’Leah) and Hannah Blaney (Jeff). Pamela will also be remembered lovingly by her grandchildren, Mason Rashaw, Liam Blaney and Noah Blaney, and by her brothers and sisters, Richard Walton, Sally Hills, Victoria Meany, Billy Walton and Steven Walton, and many adored nieces and nephews. Pamela will be missed by her cherished cat, Muriel, and most especially being Doggie Grandma to her daughter’s dogs.
Pamela loved to share her childhood stories about summers at the Fuller farm in Honaker, Virginia. As a “child of the 60s” Pam was fully engaged in the civil rights movement, performance art, and teaching. Pamela’s life work was painting and creating art in her home studio. Her pieces are about “meditation with color, shapes and direction, informed by translations of life experience.” Pamela also loved reading and gardening. Recently, Pamela has focused on her passion for art while plying her special talents as the best of all grandmothers. Pamela was a free spirit and loved her family dearly.
A celebration of life to honor Pamela is being planned for early Spring.
