Pamela Sanford

November 25, 1968 — February 27, 2015

Pamela Denise Sanford, age 46, of Oak Ridge went home to be with her Savior Friday February 27, 2015.
Pam was born November 25, 1968 in Sweetwater, Tennessee. She was a 1987 graduate of Powell High School and received her Associates Degree in Accounting from Hiwassee College. Pam was a member of the Oak Ridge Family Bible Church and enjoyed roller skating, swimming, basketball, dancing, music, and a love for animals. She sang in the choir at Powell High School. She and her husband had a favorite song which they would sing to one another. She was a do-it - yourselfer having done many remodeling projects. Pamela's passion was accounting. She had such a talent and attention to detail to her craft that she often found mistakes made by CPA's, previous employees, etc. As a result her employers were able to recoup funds due to them. She was a great asset to all her employers and clients and continually found ways to save them money. She was the founder and owner of LeBooks and had many clients in the Oak Ridge and Knoxville area some of which are Realty Center, Dean's Restaurant, Creative Carpet and Tile, National Electronics, and Ms. Betty Beard.
