Mar 13, 1954 - Jan 10, 2018
Pamela Jayne Williamson, age 63 of Tulsa, OK. passed away on Wednesday,
January 10, 2018. She was born to Malcolm Avert Ashford and Martha Jayne
Ashford on March 13, 1954 in Bowie, TX. At the age of 17, she married
Billy Shipman in Nuevo Laredo, MX. After graduating Richland High School
in 1972, she moved to Houston, TX. She had her first child, Heather Nicole
Squires (Shipman), born in 1975. Pam and Bill divorced in 1980 and Pam
returned to Ft. Worth, TX with her daughter. She later met her 2nd husband,
Craig Williamson, in 1986. They had their son, Daniel Craig Williamson
in 1987, then married the following year. They had their daughter, Sarah
Whitney Williamson in 1993. They relocated to Bartlesville, OK in 1994.
Pam and Craig’s divorce was final in 1998. Pam then married Marvin
Warehime in 2003 and they divorced in 2005. Pam began painting at a young
age and was an amazing artist. Her paintings would range anywhere from
landscapes, wildlife, to mystical creatures and clowns. She was an avid
reader and could read an entire book in a couple of days. She loved gardening,
music, dancing, cooking, watching Jeopardy, and especially loved her dogs,
Harley and Jazmine. Pam was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer July 2016 following
a trip to Colorado to attend her daughter Heather’s wedding. She
received immunotherapy treatment with very little need for radiation and
showed signs of improvement. Unfortunately, she had to discontinue the
treatment due a battle with pneumonia (a side effect of the medication).
This enabled the cancer to progress and eventually led to her hospitalization.
She later moved to hospice care in Bartlesville (to be close to family).
During this time, her daughter, Heather, came to Oklahoma to be with her
mom. Sarah previously lived with Pam in Tulsa, but relocated to Bartlesville
to live with her dad. While in hospice care, Pam’s children were
able to spend time with her, which provided closure for them, as well
as bringing them closer together as a family. Pam is survived by her children,
Heather Squires, Daniel Williamson, Sarah Williamson, grandchildren, Lydia
Williamson and Levi Williamson, mother, Martha Ashford, her siblings,
Mark Ashford and Lisa Ashford-Hoote, along with cousins and other family
members. The memorial will be held Saturday @2pm, January 27, 2018 at
