Pamela Ann (Ilg) Harring, 74, of Fairfield, OH, passed away Thursday, July 22, 2021, at the Hospice of Blue Ash. She was born on January 15, 1947, in Greenville, OH, to Henry L. and Margaret A. (Eller) Ilg.
Pamela received her undergraduate and later her Master's from Miami University of Ohio. She met Keith Harring in West Hartford, CT, when they were both beginning their teaching careers. They married in Greenville, OH, on July 11, 1970.
Pamela was a life-long learner and loved teaching. After retirement, she continued to mentor student teachers at Miami University. She also enjoyed biking, swimming, gardening, and watching her children and grandchildren participate in their sports and activities.
An active member of the Trinity Presbyterian Church, Pamela sung in the choir and served as an Elder. Her love of dogs was apparent throughout her life. During her retirement, Pamela, along with her husband Keith, enjoyed bike trips throughout the country and traveling the world. But most of all, she loved being Grammy and playing an active part in her grandchildren's lives. She had a big heart and cared deeply for her family and friends. Her infectious smile will never be forgotten.
She will be deeply missed by her husband of 51 years; children Gwen (Kevin) Mantel of Zionsville, IN, and Amanda "Mandy" (Andrew) Abbott of Boston, MA; grandchildren Morgan and Nathan Mantel, and Annika Abbott; brother William Ilg; her dog Annie; and numerous nieces and nephews.
