Pamela Gayle Edgerton passed away on Friday, June 8, 2018, in McAlester, Oklahoma at the age of 64 years and seven months.

Pamela was born November 8, 1953, in Christopher, Illinois. She was the daughter of John and Dorothea (Coates) Hicks.

Edgerton on December 17, 1972. The couple made their home in Cleveland, Oklahoma for many years. Pamela attended TCC and received her nursing degree later finishing as a Registered Nurse. In 2000, Pam began working at St. John Hospital in the surgical intensive care unit. Following Brad's accident, Pam quit working to take care of him. Her experience as a nurse was very beneficial due to the fact of getting him back to a normal life. Pam and Don moved to McAlester where they have continued to reside. In 2006, Pam returned to work and accepted a position with McAlester Regional Hospital. In 2012, she retired due to medical reasons.
