The Pamela Maiorino Memorial Fund

The Pamela Maiorino Memorial Fund

Pamela passed away on Wednesday, August 8, 2012, after a two-year battle with leiomyosarcoma. She was born on November 5, 1957, and lived her life in Firebaugh, Ca.

From her earliest days, Pamela was thought of as a social butterfly who never met a stranger in her life. Even during her most difficult times, she went out of her way to show kindness to others. Despite the physical pain she felt during her illness, she never missed an opportunity to phone a friend, admire a baby, or simply make someone smile. The strength and courage Pamela showed during her illness amazed and inspired her family and friends. Cancer may have taken her life but it never broke her spirit. Pamela had a lifelong passion for the Sierra Mountains, children, country music, and good times.

Pamela is survived by her parents, Jim and Annette Maiorino of Firebaugh; Jack Lancaster of Firebaugh, her boyfriend of 21 years; her sister, Michaele Maiorino of Firebaugh; her brother, Brian Maiorino of Fresno; her sister, Kristin Cardoza of Plano, Texas; her brother, Trace Maiorino of San Francisco; many nieces and nephews; and too many friends to list.
