Bretzke

Pamela Greer Bretzke – age 76, died on Friday, June 28th, 2019. She was a loving wife and mother of two, grandma of six children. She left behind her earthly tent and flew into the arms of Jesus. Pam was born on June 12, 1943 in Flint to Lester and Marjorie Lovegrove. Born a “middle” child between older sis, MaryLee Brotebeck and younger brother, Kurt Lovegrove, Pam was a spit-fire and full of shenanigans. She finished college and married Bruce Bretzke Sr. and together they raised Angie and Tal.  Pam completed nursing school and earned her LPN degree, working at McLaren Hospital.  Coming to know Christ at 32 years was the life-changing event that shaped Pam. She spent the next four decades walking with the Lord Jesus, teaching her children and grandchildren to do the same. She was an awesome cook, decorator, enjoyed studying the Bible and handwork, and most importantly was faithful to pray for whom the Lord put in her basket: her family, friends, and those who do not know Jesus. She encouraged us all, “to do the next right thing”. She was our godly rock and will be sorely missed. Pamela is survived by daughter, Angela Greer (Curt) Finch of Anthem, AZ; and son, Bruce Talmage (Kelli) Bretzke Jr. of Greenville; five grandchildren, Tre and Alyssa Finch, Taylor, Savannah, and Titus Bretzke; sister, MaryLee (Bob) Brotebeck of Roscommon;  and brother Kurt (Jeanne) Lovegrove of Fenton.  Also surviving are in-laws, Brian (Polly) Bretzke, and many loving nieces, nephews, and friends. Pamela was preceded in death by her parents, husband of 48 years Bruce Sr., and loving grandson, Bruce III to whom she is now reunited in Jesus. Private family service.
