SOUTH CASCO — Pamela Vivian Deschambeault earned her angel wings on Saturday, Oct. 21, after a courageous battle with cancer. Her final days were spent at her home on Sebago Lake surrounded by her loving family and friends. Pam was the devoted wife of David J Deschambeault, and the loving mother of six beautiful children along with multiple “fur babies.”

Born in Lewiston on March 6, 1944, Pam was the daughter of Edward and Mariette (Chaput) Bikulcius. A graduate of Lewiston High School, she spent her early life working as a cosmetologist at American Hair Fashion. Eventually she transitioned to full-time “Boss” of the Deschambeault household, while simultaneously helping her husband run a successful business, serving as chief CFO of Games Inc. Pam (a.k.a., Mad-Damn-P) was a woman of conviction, known for her candid sharp tongue and wit, along with her tenacious and vivacious personality. Known to be tough as nails, she was easily recognizable by her vibrant hair and sparkling adornment of jewelry. She was a phenomenal cook and quite crafty; especially talented at stained glass and sewing. She enjoyed building with Legos and playing bingo, but especially enjoyed Sebago Lake boat rides, sunsets and social gatherings. In addition to her husband of 51 years, Pam is survived by her children, Andrea and husband, Mark Schnobrich Jr. of Amherst, N.Y., Amanda Deschambeault and husband, Rick Mailhiot of Lewiston, Keith Deschambeault of Rangeley, Kevin Deschambeault of Lewiston, Gary and wife, Melanie Deschambeault of Leeds and Melissa Paquette of Biddeford. Pam also leaves behind her two sisters, Karen Bikulcius of Yarmouth and Linda and husband, Richard Matthews of Greene, along with two grandchildren. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her two aunts, Henrietta Dascanio and Amy Picard, along with a niece and nephew, Mandy and Brent Matthews.

The family would like to thank the entire staff at New England Cancer Specialists, especially Pam’s oncologist Dr. Tracey Weisberg, for their exquisite care over the eight years of her battle with cancer. Thank you also to Southern Maine Hospice for the loving care they provided in her final days. Condolences, donations, and a video tribute may be accessed online at
