Pamela M. Vander Loop, 64, Green Bay resident, passed away on Monday, May 8, 2023, at the Meng Residence from aggressive brain cancer. She was born on April 1, 1959, in Green Bay, to Allen Malcore and the late Elizabeth (Allen) Malcore. Pam graduated from Green Bay Preble High School in 1977. On September 23, 1983, she married Daniel Vander Loop at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church.
Pam was employed at Pauly Cheese from 1977 until 1987, at which time she chose to retire and concentrate on raising her family. Pam was involved in all aspects of parish life. She was active in Holy Martyrs School as a tutor, lunchroom monitor and was instrumental in starting the parish script program. She continued volunteering at Prince of Peace for just about any event where help was needed. She had a passion for flower gardening that was evident to all who saw her yard. Pam cherished her time with family and friends at the cabin in Townsend, making memories that will be told to future generations. When someone mentioned Rice Krispie Squares, they were really talking about Pam, who was the queen of Rice Krispie treats, making them the size of bricks. She was a known “Hugger” and seemed to know when someone needed a hug. She was also a second mother to most. Pam was proud of her family and loved being a wife, mother and especially a grandmother.
She is survived by her husband Dan and their two children, Kyle (Abby) Vander Loop, De Pere and Jill Vander Loop, Green Bay; three grandchildren, Charles, Philip and Louis Vander Loop; her father, Allen Malcore; one brother, Scott (Dana) Malcore; two sisters, Marcy (Larry) Van Rite and Shelly (Tom) Ebeling; sister-in-law, Peggy Malcore; her in-laws: Dorothy (Don) Konop; Ken (Suzy) Vander Loop; Harold (Joann) Vander Loop; Cy (Marg) Vander Loop; Ed (Sally) Vander Loop; Ralph (Lynn) Vander Loop and Mary (Mark) Treichel; many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by a brother, Randy Malcore; grandparents, Gus and Grace Malcore; father-in-law and mother-in-law, George and Antoinette Vander Loop; sisters-in-law, Sister George Antoinette and Diane Vander Loop; aunts, uncles and a niece, Erin Vander Loop.
