Pamela Anne Susan Marquardt (née: Kalanuk), beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt and grandmother, passed away on Thursday, June 20th, 2024, at the age of 74 years, with her family by her side.  She was predeceased by her parents, Vera Kalanuk (1932- 1983) and William Kalanuk (1923 - 1985), whom she cherished deeply. 

Pam dedicated 42 years of her life to teaching, leaving an impact on the countless students whose lives she touched.  Her passion for education and nurturing young minds defined her career and left a legacy that will endure for generations to come.  Beyond her professional accomplishments, Pam was a woman of many passions and interests.  She found joy in crafts such as crochet, knitting, and sewing, using her creativity to bring beauty and warmth into the world.  She loved to swim, finding peace in the water, and enjoyed scouring garage sales for hidden treasures. 

Yet, above all, her greatest joy came from spending time with her friends and family, whose love and companionship meant everything to her.  Watching her children grow into adults was her greatest fulfillment.  She supported them through all endeavors and will forever be remembered for never missing a sports game - rain or shine.  Described by those who knew her as compassionate, loving, and caring, Pam's kindness knew no bounds.  Her capacity for empathy and understanding touched the lives of all who knew her, leaving a lifelong impact on those fortunate enough to call her a friend or family. 

Pam is survived by her devoted husband of 44 years, Dennis Marquardt; children: Christopher Marquardt (Dakota Brown), Patricia (Jeremy) Niklas, and Richard Marquardt (Whitney Rippel); sister, Trina (Gerry) Sippola; three grandchildren; as well as her nieces and nephews who will forever cherish her memory.  In her passing, Pam leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, and warmth that will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to know her.  Her presence will be deeply missed, but her spirit will live on in the hearts of all who were touched by her grace and compassion.  May she rest in eternal peace, knowing that she was loved and cherished by all who had the privilege of knowing her. 

A Graveside Service will be held on Friday, June 28th, 2024 at 9:00 a.m. at Rosedale Cemetery in Moose Jaw, SK.
