Pam’s final journey

Hello, all. Pam’s boyfriend Mark, here to share with you Pam’s final journey.

Pam passed away suddenly on May 18, 2022 at her home. She was 70.

She was born August 11, 1951, in Port Chester NY to the late Janet Isabell (Jarvis) Houck and Gladden Bishop Houck. A graduate of Port Chester High School, she attended Pace University, earning her Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. She worked as a Software Engineer with Dynamics Research Corporation.

Pam’s love for running and triathlons helped reinvent her career during her late 30’s, becoming a running/triathlon coach and personal trainer. She held numerous certifications in Personal Fitness and was selected as the USA Triathlon Coach by Reebok to train participants for the Boston Triathlon.

She competed in over one hundred events, including the New York Marathon, multiple Boston marathons, multiple Mount Washington Road Races, and many shorter runs and events throughout New England. She was a spirited competitor in – and passionate supporter of – the local Amesbury tri community and took great satisfaction from the personal successes of her friends and clients. Your words, emails, and posts are the gifts she cherished on every day, every group activity, and at every event.

Pam is survived by her brother, Thomas Gladden Houck of Claymont DE, her boyfriend Mark, her many nieces and nephews, as well as you – her running and triathlon friends who kept her grounded and motivated. Pam will be truly missed.

Join in the celebration of her life on Saturday, June 4th at 5PM at the Glen Devin Boathouse and beach (off Whitehall Road) in Amesbury, MA.

Work in the health industry as personal trainer, running and multi-sport coach. As an athlete with celiac disease and asthma, I don't let it limit me to compete in road races and triathlons.
