Celebrating the life of

Pamela Sapp Sauers

May 28, 1955 - October 11, 2022

Pamela Sapp Sauers

Pamela Sapp Sauers, age 67, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday, October 11th at Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah. Pam was born May 28th, 1955, at the former Telfair Hospital in downtown Savannah. She attended Savannah Christian Preparatory School.

Pam never met a stranger and was always looking to help people. She grew up in Kensington Park and stayed in touch with her neighbors over the years. For the past 25 years, Pam lived on Wilmington Island. She loved the “island life.”

Her outgoing personality made her a perfect fit for her career as First Impression Specialist of Visit Savannah. Her love for the city of Savannah combined with her effervescent personality  was continuously acknowledged on online reviews and brought her great pride. “Ask for Pam Sauers!” is one review that can be seen on the web.

In addition to her people skills, Pam had a natural talent for drawing and was an avid reader of biographies and mysteries. She could be found every morning and night focused on her tablet reading the newest crime drama. 

Pam is predeceased by her parents, George and Edna Sapp; sister, George Ann Sapp Davis; and her niece, Darby Davis Sullivan. She is survived by her daughter, Brooker Forkin (Keith); son, Tommy Lodge (Betsy); grandchildren Cameron, Kayla and Ethan; sister, Donna Sapp Mobley; nephews, Carter and Clay Mobley; brother-in-law, Ronnie Davis; boyfriend, Don Hemmerle, and their dogs, River and Reef.

A memorial visitation will be held on Thursday, October 13, 2022, from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Islands Chapel.



A candle has been lit!

I am so saddened and heartbroken to hear of Pam passing…Pam had an effervescent personality and was Savannah’s ambassador of Goodwill and all things “Savannah.” She loved her City and sharing it with everyone. She was an incredible dear sweet friend with whom I shared many great times and she will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her. Prayers for all her Family and Friends as we mourn this great loss. Take care my friend and Rest In Heavenly Peace…

I was so shocked to hear of Pam’s passing. I have known Pam for years as she was friends with my sister, brother-in-law, and other family members. She was also currently my WITHA neighbor.

Pam never met a stranger, a trait I admire and would like to emulate. God bless you, Pam, and Rest In Peace.

Savannah lost a goodwill ambassador when Pam left this world, and if Heaven has a welcome center then it will surely be Pam at the main entrance, greeting the newcomers. She welcomed all whom she met and in some cases, made lasting impressions that garnered outstanding reviews online. Pam and I grew up a few blocks away from each other in midtown and attended junior high at the same time but never crossed paths until we began working in the city's tourism industry, and we share many mutual friends from way back. Pam brought so much love and energy to her position that I cannot recall ever seeing her without a smile and something good to say. Her weekly early morning photos of River Street which she posted on Facebook were something I looked forward to seeing as I worked a few blocks east and we shared that same view. Some mornings I would take a break and walk down to see her at the welcome center for a minute. It's these little things shared with a friend that make the most memorable impressions. Rest in peace, Pam.

I'm so sorry to hear of Pam's passing. I know she will be greatly missed. She was always smiling. We had some memorable times at Maggie's. She would end up cutting my hair. I think she carried her scissors everywhere with her. She was so much fun to be around. My prayers are with her family and friends. "The comfort of having a friend may be taken away, but not that of having had one."

- Valerie Mell Rogers, Savannah, Chatham

We are so sad to lose Pam and know she touched so many lives, bringing laughter and love along the way. Our hearts and prayers are with Don, Brooker, Tommy, and all who loved and cherished Pam’s light and love. We will miss having a glass of wine together, snuggling with our furry babies and living life to the fullest.

Your love of life, positive attitude and inherent beauty will give you strength in the days to come.
