Pamela Louise Marie DeJohn (Olshack), 71, lost her battle with dementia on July 31, 2018 at Townview Health and Rehabilitation Center in Canonsburg, PA.
The daughter of the late Joseph “Red” A. Olshack and the late Josephine A. Olshack (Shankovich), she was born on November 4, 1946 in Canonsburg, PA and was a 1964 graduate of Canon-McMillan High School.
