Obituary of Pamela Sue Kremnetz

Please share a memory of Pamela to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Pamela Sue Goodale was born July 24, 1955, in Toledo, Ohio. She was one of four children and the only daughter born to the union of Robert John and Janet Marie (Sherman) Goodale. Pamela attended Erie-Mason High School, graduating with the class of 1973.

On March 5, 1979, in Florida, Pamela married the love of her life, Mr. Jerome “Jerry” Kremnetz and together the couple would be blessed with a beautiful daughter, Tammi.  Pamela and Jerry were parishioners of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Erie, Michigan. For more than fifteen years, Pamela served as a prep cook at Tony Packo’s restaurant in Toledo, Ohio. She loved to cook and was an amazing baker. Pamela was known for her delicious banana cream, coconut cream, and lemon meringue pies. Many people said that her pies were so good that you wouldn’t be able to find a better tasting pie even at a bakery! Pamela also enjoyed baking a variety of Christmas cookies for the holidays. When she wasn’t in the kitchen baking one of her famous pies, Pamela would spend time outdoors gardening, tending to her flowers and mowing the lawn. She loved spending time with her two fur babies: “Pandy Bear”, a Shih Tzu, and “Scruffy”, a Wire Hair Terrier who never left Pamela’s side. A kind-hearted person, she never hesitated to help everyone and anyone she could.

Pamela Sue Kremnetz, age 68, passed away on Thursday, December 28, 2023, at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio. Her passing was preceded by her parents: Robert and Janet Goodale and her three brothers: John, Russell and Willie Goodale.

To cherish Pamela’s memory, she leaves behind her loving husband of forty-four years: Jerome “Jerry” Kremnetz of Erie, Michigan; her daughter: Tammi Kremnetz of Erie, Michigan; and several nieces and nephews.
