Pamela Joice Montgomery, age 64 passed away at home in Madison on Tuesday, April 30th. Born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Pamela graduated from Tremper High School. She went on to attend the University of Wisconsin-Parkside extension and ultimately received her Bachelor of Arts in History from Madison.

During the 20-plus years she lived in New England, Pamela received her Master of Counseling and Psychology from Lesley University.

Pamela returned to Wisconsin in 1990. She was the Executive Director of the Wisconsin Tibetan Relocation Project where she assisted Tibetan refugees acclimate and establish new lives in America. As a result of her work, she was invited to an audience and received a personal blessing from the Dalai Lama, Tibetan Leader in exile.
