Pamela Susan Sherman, 56, of Overland Park, was born March 13, 1958, in Kansas City, Missouri, the daughter of Raymond and Jean (McMichael) Cardona. She peacefully departed this life Friday, December 19, 2014, at her home surrounded with love and family.
Pam was a 1976 Raytown South High School graduate and a 1980 University of Missouri graduate.
On May 28, 1983, she was united in marriage to James Elmore Sherman in Overland Park.
Pam first worked as a Software Developer for Professional Systems Corp., and finished her professional career 12 years later as the Manager of I.T. for Helzberg Jewelers. After the birth of her second daughter, her career transitioned to full-time Mom.
As a young girl, Pam was an avid swimmer and diver, competing in Nationals as a diver. She loved to read for both pleasure and knowledge. Her excellent memory made her a force to be reckoned with when it came to Jeopardy. She loved music and singing, being asked to perform solos in several weddings. The Christmas season, with all of Its music, was her favorite time of year. But for all of her life, her greatest pleasure was spending time at the beach. And the most important thing to Pam was her family, especially her girls!
Pam was preceded in death by her father.
She is survived by her husband, Jim, of the home; two daughters, Jennifer (and Eric) Errante of Oakville, Missouri, and Sarah Sherman of the home; two granddaughters, Evelyn Jean Errante and Violet Pamela Errante of Oakville; her mother and step-father, Jean and Harold Ticknor of Leawood, Kansas; three siblings, Diane (and Mike) Lampton of Leawood, Greg (and Debbie) Cardona of Raymore, Missouri, and Tim Cardona of Overland Park, Kansas; her nephews, great nephews, nieces, and great nieces.

"I'll be seeing you, In all the old familiar places, That this heart of mine embraces, I'll be seeing you, In every lovely summer's day, In everything that's light and gay, I'll always think of you that way. I'll find you in the morning sun, And when the night is new, I'll be looking at the moon, But I'll be seeing you."
