The family of a pensioner hit by a car as she crossed the road say the sunshine has gone out their lives since she died.

Pam Wilson, 67, of Two Mile Ash, was killed on the V4 Watling Street a fortnight ago, leaving behind her husband Ken and two children, Gordon and Hazel.

In a tribute to the 67-year-old, her family said: “Pam was a wonderful wife and mother. She loved good food, good wine and good company.

“Pam was always good company and would laugh and joke with everyone. Wherever she was the sun seemed to shine. “The sunshine has gone out of the lives of Ken, Gordon, Hazel and all her many friends.”

After moving to Milton Keynes in 1982, Pam worked as an estate agent and it was then she began selling houses on Two Mile Ash.

“Many residents still have fond memories of their first meeting with her. Pam’s smile and sense of humour would guide people through the paperwork.

“No more so than when, she was the front desk representative, at the Inland Revenue.

“She enjoyed working with the public and steering them through the minefield that is the UK tax system.

“Pam threw herself into voluntary work. When her children were young she helped at the school, canoe club and scouts, with fund raising and fetes.

“Lately she worked at the Willen Hospice warehouse sorting through donations sent to the charity. She also liked socialising where she could chat, laugh and joke.

“The Yoga class she attended regularly was always kept amused by her anecdotes. When attending the plot on her allotment she would spend more time chin wagging than weeding.”

Pam’s funeral will be held at Crownhill Crematorium on Thursday, May 29 at 12.15pm.
