Pamela Kaye “Pam” Harris 1954 - 2023
Pamela Kaye “Pam” Harris

Pamela Kaye “Pam” Harris, 69, passed away Dec. 6, 2023, at Azria Health Woodhaven, Great Bend, Kan. She was born on Jan. 7, 1954, in Shawnee, Okla., to Raymond and Betty (Whitaker) Harris.

Pam enjoyed sewing, embroidery, and canning. All of these talents were showcased greatly in December as she shined as a “gifter” – gifting these products to loved ones. Potholders, baby blankets, canned okra, and cinnamon candy were a few of the favorites that people “got from Grandma/Aunt Pam”. Pam was also engaged in assisting with her class reunions and was a doting “dog mom” to five chihuahuas. 

Survivors include a daughter, Denise Finlay and husband, Casey; four grandchildren, Lucas, Emily, Ashlyn, Liam; a great grandchild, Easton; a brother, Tim Harris and wife, Janett; nephew, Clint Harris and wife, Ashleigh; niece, Jamie Taylor, and husband, Straun; and great nephews and niece, Carter and Dahlia Harris and Creede Taylor. She is preceded in death by her parents.

Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials have been designated to the Golden Belt Humane Society, in care of Bryant Funeral Home. Condolences may be sent and notice viewed at
