A gathering to celebrate the life of a stable girl from Newmarket who was found dead close to her home is to take place in the town next month.
Friends and colleagues of Pam Winterburn are being invited to join together at the Sports Pavilion on the Severals at 2pm on Saturday, September 6, to remember the 44-year old who was found hanged in a field in Clipsal Meadow on July 21.
Following her death, Pam was taken back to Yorkshire where she was cremated at Rawdon Crematorium near Leeds on August 6.
“I have had so many phone calls from people who knew Pam asking to arrange something like this in Newmarket,” said Lyn Marshall, Pam’s mother.
“There was lots of love, laughter and tears at the funeral and we want to try and recreate that down here.
“There will be no hymns but a selection of music that Pam loved played, while I will be doing a reading.
“If anybody wants to say a few words as there last respects to Pam then they are more than welcome to.
“Everybody is welcome to come and beside the tears we want to see lots of smiles, too.”
During her time working in the racing industry in Newmarket, Pam worked for the late Sir Henry Cecil, where she looked after 1999 Oaks heroine Ramruma, Darley’s pre-training operation, Hugo Palmer and most recently Ed Walker.
An inquest has been opened and adjourned into Pam’s death and a full hearing will take place in December.
