Pam, daughter of Gene and Madonna (Steffen) Kopp, was born on May 9,1959 in Dubuque, Iowa. After graduating from Hempstead High School, she moved out West and had a successful sales career. She returned to Dubuque in 1988 and met her partner in life Terry Healy. The two have been together ever since. Pam has two daughters, Shannon and Sherri, who were the light of her life.
Pam will be forever remembered for her contagious smile that could light up a room and her ability to make conversation with just about anyone. She was very creative and loved making jewelry, crafting and taking on DIY projects. Pam was also a fantastic cook, famous for her German potato salad, chicken pot pies and festive enchiladas and margaritas. She enjoyed going out to eat with family, spending time at Eagle Point Park and taking drives down by the river.
As a two time cancer survivor, Pam was a fighter who always faced her health challenges head on. We are truly heartbroken losing Pam, but have peace knowing that she is no longer suffering.
