Pamela Farr

Pamela Kay Farr, age 53 of Hudson, WI, passed away surrounded by family on April 12, 2022 at her home after several battles with breast cancer. Pam was born on December 1, 1968 in Long Prairie, MN, the youngest of ten children born to Robert “Bob” and Arlene (Kitzman) Bauer. She grew up in Long Prairie and graduated from Long Prairie High School with the class of 1987. Pam moved to the Twin Cities and attended tech school where she earned a certificate in Data Processing. Pam would eventually move to Hudson, and was blessed with two sons, Taylor and Quin. She was an irreplaceable and amazing mom to her boys, and she displayed to them her loving compassion and desires to help others. Pam met the love of her life Mike Plain, and they have been inseparable ever since. For many years, Pam worked as a web designer for Ameriprise Financial, and recently she took a job working with the Star Tribune Newspaper.

Pam loved animals and had huge spot in her heart for her dog Gracie, and all the other pets she had throughout her lifetime. She was fond of scrapbooking, completing puzzles, hanging out with friends, and riding on the back seat of Mike’s Harley Davidson motorcycle. She truly loved spending time with her family, and was affectionately called “Pam-cakes” by Mike’s nieces and nephews.

In 2012, Pam was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer. She endured her treatments and persevered as the cancer went into remission. Recently, the cancer returned as Stage 4 and had metastasized to other parts of her body.

Pam will remain in the hearts of her sons, Taylor and Quin Farr; her siblings, Allen (Nancy) Bauer, Lynn (James) Bundy, Barry (LaRae) Bauer, Cleo (Paul) Johnson, Colleen (Norman) Kleinschmidt, Colette (Kevin) Delsing, Cheryl (Tom) Petron, Richard “Rick” Bauer, and Ronald (Sonja) Bauer; her longtime significant other, Mike Plain; Mike’s children, Brittany and Brandon Plain; Mike’s father, Don Barrett; Mike’s siblings, Ken (Tina) Plain, Troy Barrett, Kim (Kevin) Colvard; father to her sons, Eric Farr; many nieces and nephews; other relatives and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents, Bob and Arlene Bauer; and grandparents, Peter and Loretta Bauer, and Charles and Edith Kitzman.
