Of Saugus. A lifetime resident of Saugus, MA, passed away surrounded by loved ones on December 15th, 2022, she was 79. She was the beloved wife of 64 years to Carl B. Strout of Saugus. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her three children: Lorna Cerbone of Boxford, Carl Strout and his wife, Judi, of Saugus, and Bonnie Zackular and her husband, Gary, of Saugus. She is the first daughter of the late Leo and Lorna (MacOrquodale) Landry of Saugus, and sister of the late Penny (Landry) and her surviving husband, Fred McGarry. Being the grandmother, “nanny,” to her 7 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren was the highlight of her life.
Pam had many talents including sewing, quilting, and rug hooking. She enjoyed sharing her skills with others by teaching classes for many years at Saugus High School. When she wasn’t acting as the family seamstress, you could find her in the kitchen baking sweet treats. From homemade bread to her cinnamon “sticky buns,” there was nothing she couldn’t make from scratch. She was always doing for others, but when she did take time for herself, she was curled up with a cup of tea and a Debbie Macomber book. Pam’s memory will continue to live on in the hearts of those who were lucky enough to have known her, and the family she created will remain her greatest legacy. Her beautiful soul, warm smile, and bright blue eyes will never fade.
In lieu of flowers or donations, Pam’s wishes were that you honor her by making memories with your own families.
