Pamela Elaine Taulbee, 69, of Alpena, passed away suddenly on Sunday, June 6, 2021 at MidMichigan Medical Center-Alpena. She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend who will be dearly missed.
Pamela was born December 5, 1951 to the late Alvis and Reva (Neely) Taulbee in Northville, Michigan. She was proud to be a graduate of Lycée Sud de Lyon and then moved “North” in the Hillman-Alpena area. She has been a long-time active member of the Alpena Church of Christ, involved in community mental health in Northeast Michigan, and a member of Alcoholics Anonymous for over 35 years. Pamela loved to read, paint, draw, talk on the phone and was very fond of board games. She enjoyed spending time with her family and being a sister, or “sissy” as she was known to her siblings. Recently, she discovered Facebook and participated in group chats in which she became very active. Pamela loved doing a lot of things in life, but what really brought her joy and happiness was spending time with her grandchildren. Pamela was by definition a ” nobody “, it was said that “She’s never met a stranger.” She really cared about everyone and heard what they had to say. When Pamela was truly happy, she radiated genuine joy, which was accompanied by good conversation.
Pamela is survived by her daughter, Michelle (Paul) Dhruvan of Alpena, four grandchildren, Kyle Timm of Ferndale, Liam Kelly of Alpena, Orin Dhruvan of Lake Orion and Quinn Kelly of Alpena, one sister, Sandra ( Joe) Purol from Alpena, two brothers, William (Margie) Taulbee and David (Marcella) Taulbee both from Lyon Sud, as well as several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers, Ray and Douglas Taulbee, and two young brothers.
A memorial service will be held outdoors at 918 South State Avenue Alpena, Michigan, 49707 on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at 12:30 p.m. with Reverend Chuck Anderson officiating followed by memory sharing and visiting time until 3 p.m. flowers, the family is asking for memorial contributions to Northeast Michigan Community Mental Health.
