Pamela Mintzer

In loving memory of our mom, Pamela Jean Mintzer, who was born in Warren, Pa., on March 10, 1950, and joined her family in heaven on Jan. 28.

She is survived by her mother, Marjorie Mintzer; daughters: Kimberly Courtemanche (granddaughters Molly and Miranda) and Rebecca Berninger (son-in-law Brandon and granddaughter Keely Joy); brothers: Tommy, Johnny and Charles Mintzer; niece Diana Marie Knepp and her mother, Beverly Pittock; as well as many faithful friends including: Fran Leto, Linda Knapp, Frankie Johnson, Bonnie Woods and Pam’s extended family at The Resource Center and Golden Living.

Pamela was predeceased by her father, James Mintzer; daughter. Rhonda; and loving companion Bob Peters.

Pam was an exemplary source of inspiration, strength, unconditional love, unending joy, genuine kindness and graciousness, and more than we could ever have asked for. Everyone who knew her loving, generous character will forever remember her exuberant, irrepressible spirit which will forever be part of us. Thank you for having been our mom. We love you always and forever and are so truly proud to be called your own.

A celebration of Pam’s life will be held at the Interfaith Chapel on the Warren State Hospital campus on Saturday, Feb. 1 at 11 a.m. with visitation from 9:30-11 a.m.
