Lowe Profile: Pamela Dayner, Legal SecretaryJune 30, 2021
In this month’s installment of the Lowe Profile, we’re getting to know Pamela Dayner, legal secretary and 35-year veteran of the firm. Pam has many interests and hobbies, so get ready to sit back and enjoy getting to know one of our longest standing staff members!
Tell us a little about your family and pets:
I am married to Sharon Bell, who I call my beautiful gypsy wife, (quoting Leonard Cohen) and have two wonderful sisters-in-law, two very helpful (also wonderful) “go-to” brothers-in-law, three outstanding nieces and two terrific nephews, thanks to her. She completes me.
We have two dogs, Gracie Lynn, a precocious (annoyingly smart) 3-year-old bea-bull (beagle and bully mix), with an insatiable desire to chase sticks and balls, and Tony Soprano, aka Tuck, her little brother, a 3-year-old, 11lb. chiweenie (chihuahua and wiener dog mix), rescued from a West Virginia kill shelter just a year ago.
What is your favorite hobby outside of work?
Entertaining, from start to finish; from planning an event, theme, menu, libations, music play list (Sharon builds it and I contribute ideas here and there). We also have a catering business on the side. We both love entertaining and make a really good team and it affords us the ability to continue renovating our home, which is a bank building built in 1918 and located in Cleveland’s Detroit-Shoreway/Gordon Square Arts District. Everyone refers to us as “The Girls at The Bank.” We are proud that friends have come to us and asked us to plan and cater fundraisers, as we have hosted many successful benefits for charities: women’s shelters, Wags for Warriors, and handicap assist dogs.
Describe a perfect day:
We are hosting an event at The Bank beginning at 6 p.m. – GO!
Wake at 6 a.m., walk our dogs at the beach and let Gracie Lynn swim and save sticks from the water. She’s not built for swimming, but she loves it and it’s great exercise – she’s all muscle. She loves her brother Tuck, though he is not a swimmer (he just runs along the shore and barks with unbridled joy.)
Multi-tasking: eat a light breakfast while standing at the kitchen island stuffing cucumbers, celery, and assembling appetizers, whatever needs to get done for the event, reviewing our to-do list of what we cook or do next as the day advances. Before we know it, it’s 3:00 p.m. Time to put up our feet for an hour, then get ready for our event. Our guests begin to arrive, music and laughter fill the air. We proudly show first-time guests around our building (we’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished), and absorb the happiness, good food, and friends all around us. That’s a perfect day.Back To Blog
