Pamela (Pam) Coggin, 69, of New London, NC passed away peacefully at home June 2nd, 2020. Born March 14th, 1951 to Dodson and Rachel Lowder of Stanly County, NC she graduated from Albemarle High School in 1969 and attended the University of North Carolina Charlotte, graduating in 1975 with a BA in Early Childhood Education.
Pam worked at Millingport Elementary School until the family opened Custom Creations, Inc. of which she was the Secretary-Treasurer until her passing. Though she genuinely enjoyed helping her husband Charles develop, plan and build custom homes – her pride and joy was opening Custom Cruises and Travel. Pam loved traveling and as a result provided wonderful experiences for her clients.
When not in the office, she could be found working outside in the yard which gave her great pleasure. Pam took care of any stray cats that found their way to her door – they were never stray for long after dining at Casa Pamela! The most recent additions to the furry family were Sadie and Jazzie, her two playful and rambunctious Jack Russells.
Pam is survived by the love of her life Charles whom she married on September 26th, 1970. Inseparable until her passing, they would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year.
She is also survived by brothers William E. Calloway, Sherrill D. Lowder and wife Olga, Gregory A. Lowder and wife Mistie as well as a host of nieces, nephews and in-laws that will dearly miss her presence at family gatherings.
The celebration of Pam’s life will be held at a later time and in lieu of flowers the family has requested that donations be made to Samaritan’s Purse or the Charity of choice in Pam’s name.
