Pamela Ann Oram

Age 62 of Diamond, passed away Saturday, August 11, 2018 at Aperion Care in Wilmington.

Born September 9, 1955 in Joliet, Illinois, Pamela Ann was a daughter of William Robert and Constance Marie (Baudino) Frye. She was raised in Coal City and graduated with the Coal City High School Class of 1973. Pam’s employment entailed being an independent contracted courier of various news media publications locally, in the rural areas. She enjoyed playing the organ and ceramics in the years past, and loved bingo. Her schnauzer Charlie, was one of her pride and joys.

On April 13, 1991, Pam married Brad M. Oram in New Hope Presbyterian Church in Coal City. Together they shared 26 years of marriage until Brad’s unexpected passing earlier this year.

Pam leaves behind a wonderful legacy of being remembered as a truly nurturing and caring soul. She was a devoted mother, and there is no doubt that her presence among her family will be deeply missed and fondly remembered.

Survivors include her two sons: John, Jr. (Melissa) Harvey of Braidwood and Joseph (Beth) Harvey of Wilmington; one granddaughter, Ashley Nicole (Nate) Swatzell of Wisconsin; her sister, Wendy Huston of Coal City; brother, Robert Frye of Yorkville; one aunt, Marijayne Baudino of Kinsman, and her former daughter-in-law, Ami Finn of Wisconsin, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Pam was preceded in death by her parents, Bill and Connie Frye; her husband Brad Michael Oram on February 17, 2018; one son, William George Harvey on February 13, 2017; one grandson, John Patrick Harvey in infancy, and her brother-in-law, Kenny Huston.
