Pam Evenson Hepper


Pam Evenson Hepper BS ’70 was a childcare worker in residential and daycare settings after her graduation from Lewis & Clark. She married her husband, Rick, in March 1973. The couple, who live in the Sellwood area of Portland, will soon celebrate 50 years together. Pam and Rick have a daughter and a son, and each of them has given them two granddaughters. They recently moved into a tiny house in their backyard, passing the big house on to their daughter. Hepper worked at Laughing Horse Books for seven years. Then, from 1994 to 2014, she ran her own delivery business, Ambling Bear Delivery. Pam retired, in part, to backpack in the Eagle Cap Wilderness with her daughter and her two oldest granddaughters. During retirement, Hepper writes poetry (which she has been doing since 1972), exercises, and enjoys spending time with family and friends.
