Pamela Lee Frayer Pamela Lee Frayer
(December 16, 1955 - September 19, 2013)

Pamela Frayer, Bellevue, Michigan. Pamela (Howard) Frayer went home to be with her Lord and Savior on September 19, 2013 after a brave three year battle with cancer and leukemia. Pam loved farm life living on her Mom and Dad’s (Jean and Bud Howard) for eighteen years, then eventually moving to her own farm with her husband, Jeff Frayer, of 35 years. Besides loving the farm life, fresh air and the smell of hay, Pam loved to laugh with and tease her husband Jeff; they always felt blessed beyond measure. Pam also loved her two children, Sarah (Michael) Clift and Jessica (Ben) Tirrell, as well as the most beautiful granddaughters in the world, Reagan Lee and Amelia Rose Tirrell. Pam was especially fond of her miniature Schnauzers; Eddie, Gunner, and Izzy. As well, Pam enjoyed sewing, knitting, cooking and visiting with friends. Right out of high school, Pam became the youngest female store manager for the Joann Fabric chain working one year in Brighton. When Jeff and she decided to marry, Pam transferred to Battle Creek and managed the Battle Creek store for nearly five years. After their first child Sarah was born, she and Jeff decided the best job in the world would be a full time mom. Once Sarah and Jessy were in school full time, Pam took a job at Flexfab in Hastings then accepted a job at Olivet College. Pam did payroll for a few years at Olivet then started working in the development department. Pam is survived by her dad, Clarence “Bud” Howard, husband, Jeff Frayer, daughters Sarah and Jessica, many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Pam was preceded by her mom Marilyn “Jean” (Hutchins) Howard, brother Ronald Dean Howard and brother David Lloyd Howard.
