PAMELA L. PICK (NEE TAINTER), 69, passed away at home on Friday, September 25, 2015, after a long battle with Lupus and AL Amyloidosis. She was born on February 11, 1946 to Robert Stevenson Tainter and Leona E. (Peltier) Tainter in Los Angeles, California. Pam graduated from Eagle Rock High School, Winter 1963. On July 17, 1965 she married Robert O. Pick in Pacific Palisades, California and they had 50 wonderful years together, celebrating their golden anniversary with their children and grandchildren.

Pam was a homemaker, volunteer, and an army wife. Her gregarious nature helped her to fit in well with the Army Wives Clubs at various assignments and support to the unofficial communications system that the husbands didn't have. In addition to people, she loved animals; cats, dogs, bats and horses--even to the point of playing midwife to a mare in difficulty when no one else was around to help. She enjoyed learning new things, playing cards, gardening, riding, and quilting. The latter she made for friends and relatives as well as to give away--over 300 of them to a Juarez orphanage, the Linus project, police, fire, and sheriff's department, Wounded Warriors program, and La Casa. She was proud to receive her BS with High Honors in Geography (hence her license plate GEOGR4) from NMSU in 2003. Pam is survived by her husband, Bob; a daughter, Terri; a son, Brian as well as four grandchildren, Margo, Mallory, Michael, and Myles Pick. Her parents and one granddaughter, Madison, predeceased her. -
