The Daily Me


PITTSFIELD—Patricia A. Killam, 81, has gone to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on June 21, 2011. She was born July 25, 1929 in Danvers, MA, a daughter of William and Glenice (Avery) Lord. She graduated from Hartland Academy, Class of 1947.

She was a member of the St. Albans Union Church from childhood through high school and also attended Bible study. Pat was very active in school playing softball at second base and loving it. She also enjoyed Basketball, Glee Club, French Club, Dramatic Class, Student Council, Class Treasurer, Prize Speaking and the Senior Play. Her Senior Yearbook had this to say! "Pat loves everything but school. roller skating, ice skating, dancing, and basketball games all rate high on her list of activities. We all love to tease her about her red hair, and sometimes the temper that matches it arises. Pat also keeps us posted on all the local news. She cheerfully does everything we ask her to do. Good luck to a grand sport and classmate." (Actually she also did very well in school)

Soon after, she met, fell in love and married Ernest Killam. They had two children, Duane Lee and Cassie Lynn and made their home in Pittsfield.

Pat had many jobs throughout the years and was always a hard and earnest worker. She was a beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt, friend, gramma and great gramma (also known as GG). She was always full of life, loved to have fun and always enjoyed a good prank! In recent years, she loved family, playing games, was an avid bingo player and always enjoyed watching church services on television.

She is survived by her son, Duane of Pittsfield; her daughter, Cassie and husband Matthew Nichols of Freeland, WA; a brother, William and wife Catherine Lord of Pelham, NH; a sister, Grace Lary of Pittsfield; a sister-in-law, Meredith Hicks of Detroit; many special nieces and nephews, 8 grandchildren and families, Justin Nichols, Bryan Nichols, Amy Estelle Atwood, Victor Nichols, and George Nichols; Tammy Killam, Nickole Blake, Brandy Shea; and several great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Ernest in 1996.

A favorite poem:

I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave, when this life is done."

We rejoice with our beloved Pat today as she is now in the loving arms of her Heavenly Father.

Graveside services will be held 2 P.M. July 23rd at the Pittsfield Village Cemetery.

Arrangements are by Crosby & Neal, Newport.
