Pam Muirbrook
Pam Muirbrook passed away Thursday, March 31, 2011 in her home. She was born on Dec. 5, 1950 to Elda Voth and Kenneth Schroeder. On Aug. 19, 1968 she was adopted by Roger Maisch. She grew up in the Aberdeen/American Falls area and graduated from Aberdeen High School. She attended the University of Idaho and received a BS degree in Social Work (A career she never relinquished).
While at the university, she married Paul Muirbrook on Aug. 19, 1972. Pam and Paul raised two children, Tanya Muirbrook (Ray) of Portland, OR, and Zack (Jamie) Muirbrook of Idaho Falls.
Pam started her career in Malad, ID, by opening the first Health and Welfare office in Malad and Preston. When they decided to raise their children on the farm, Pam and Paul moved back to Aberdeen where Pam opened the American Falls Health and Welfare office. When their children were young she spent her time with the farm bailing hay, working ground and chasing cows. She raised hundreds of bottle calves, kept an immaculate yard, built a home and attended every function of her children. As the children grew, she went to work as a bookkeeper at the University of Idaho Experiment Station. She then became Executive Secretary of the Aberdeen-Springfield Canal Company for years and at the time of her death she served as Business Manager of the Aberdeen School District.
Pam’s work ethic and commitment to tasks did not go unnoticed at the workplace. She always challenged herself to develop more efficient protocols and technologies for the betterment of her clients. She loved her work, especially the last 10 + years at the school district. She truly believed that society’s best investment is the education of children.
Pam spent many years as a Sunday School teacher and also as the President of St Paul’s Lutheran Church in Aberdeen. She served over 20 years in planning and zoning for the county and city of Aberdeen. She served on city council and was active in the League of Women Voters. Those whom she worked with knew where she stood on issues as she spent countless hours researching the subject matter.
Pam loved to read and discuss books at book club and even with her treatment nurses. She studied current events because she loved a good political debate. She held the passion for gardening and watercolor painting. Her house was always open to others and she loved being an aunt and the adoptive mother to many. And in the last few years she loved being a grandma to her two beloved grandsons.
She is survived by her husband of 38 years, Paul Muirbrook; daughter Tanya Muirbrook (Ray) of Portland, OR; son Zack and daughter-in-law Jamie Muirbrook of Idaho Falls; grandsons Gavin and Waylon; brothers John Schroeder and Jason (Misti) Maisch; sister Gwen (Lonny) Kiggins; dad Roger Maisch; mother-in-law Marie (Orville) Mathewson; sisters-in-law Peg (Dave) Baine and Gail (Rich) Wallace; the cousins; and The Portland Girls.
