Pamela Lynn Brickweg was born on April 22, 1973, in Melrose, MN, to Jim and Joni ”Gerads” Brickweg. She graduated high school from Holdingford in 1991. Pam married Jay Lehnen on July 31, 1999, they later divorced but remained lifelong friends. Pam’s love for people found her working for various hospitality businesses: Bo Diddley’s, The Creamery, Jordie’s Trail Side Café, and Cornerstone. Pam’s love for the elderly took her to her final job at the Country Manor. Pam enjoyed any type of board game she could get you to play with her, ice fishing, her Snoopy collection, the color pink and soaking up the sun rays, making gingerbread houses with her nieces & nephew, and Christmas was always a special season for her. Pam was very thoughtful and kind with a soft spot for the elderly and animals. She will be remembered for her beautiful smile and for the kindness she showed for others.
Pam is survived by her son, Tate Lehnen of Rice, MN; former husband, Jay Lehnen, Rice, MN; parents Jim and Joni Brickweg of Backus, MN; brother, Randy (Angie) Brickweg of Pine River, MN; her nieces, Elsie and Nola; and nephew Eli; and many dear relatives and friends.
