Pamela Tackett, 72, passed away peacefully on April 6, 2022. She was born June 20, 1949, in Akron, the youngest of three children born to the late Elton and Addie Smith. We take solace in knowing family & friends who have died before her were there to welcome her home.
Pamela was a 1967 graduate of Garfield High School where she was a majorette. She worked at The University of Akron as a keypunching clerk, Akron Children’s Hospital as a data processing clerk, and Smith Electric as a secretary.
Pamela bowled in many local area bowling leagues for many years and that tradition carried down to her grandson Tommy. She truly enjoyed spending her vacations listening to and watching the ocean waves and catching the sunrise over the water. Her favorite vacation spot was The Outer Banks, North Carolina. She found joy in her grand-dogs and great grand-dogs. She will forever hold a special place in so many hearts!
