Pamela Jo was born November 10, 1957 to Robert R. and Katherine M. (Prozy) Garrison in Vermillion, South Dakota. Pam grew up and attended school in Ellendale, North Dakota, graduating from Ellendale High School in 1976. She attended Trinity Bible College in Ellendale where she was Social Committee chairman and traveled with the Troubadour Ministry; she also traveled with her parents for Evangelistic Ministry.

Pam was united in marriage with David Knudson on October 20, 1984 in Ellendale and Pam became a mother to Julie Jo. Pam and David were blessed with a set of twins, Travis and Tyler in 1986; and their daughter, Ashley in 1989. The family moved to Massachusetts in 1987 where Pam was employed at the Yankee Candle Company and also the South Shore Medical Center.

Pam was a loving and devoted Christian. She loved being a wife, mother and grandmother and enjoyed spending time with her family; she truly loved spending time with her grandchildren. She also took pride in her cat, Candy who was “A girl trapped in a cat’s body!”

Pam’s hobbies included collecting Beanie Babies, candles and Christmas villages. She loved the Christmas season from gift giving to decorating the tree and everything in between.

Pam is survived by her husband, David Knudson of Watertown; her sons, Travis Knudson of Watertown, Tyler (Renea) Knudson and children, Landen, Gavin and Brayden of Watertown, and her daughter, Ashley Knudson of Watertown; Julie (Christopher) Hayes and children, Frank, Joseph, Domonick, Hana, Jauquin and Anderson of Hopewell, VA; her sister, Kathi Garrison of Watertown; her brother-in-law, Hans Theerman of Berlin, Germany; numerous bothers-in-law and sisters-in-law; nieces and nephews; and a host of other relatives and friends.

The entire Garrison family was a part of our family. Bob and Kaye were "grandpa and grandma" to our kids. The girls were all "aunts" and we spent years together. Losing yet another family member is so hard, but what a reunion it will be when we all get to heaven. Both of my girls were in Pam and David's wedding...such stories we had. David, I am so sorry for your loss...boys...your mother loved you so much...Ashley, you have and are the most amazingly wonderful daughter ever...such a blessing to your precious mom. Keep the stories alive with her grandkids... Kathi, I love you so, and really think you need to head out here and spend some time together. Love you all! Kathy Carlin
