Pamela Raye (Thatcher) McGinness

July 6,1955- October 24, 2017


"You are loved forever" Romans 8:38-39

Pamela is the daughter of the late Walter Thatcher. She is predeceased by her sister Debra. Pam is survived by her husband Donald McGinness, her  mother, Constance Thatcher, her 9 brothers and sisters, Steve(Aggie) Thatcher, Susan(The late Tom') Dorsett, Sharon (Daniel) LaFountain, Virginia (Bud) Barone, Vicki (Edward)Hanson, Lisa (Dan)Harrington, Walter (Marlene) Thatcher, Donald Thatcher, and Maureen (Greg) Morgan, her 4 children and 4 step children, Amy (Kirk) Roscoe, Jill (Wayne) Taylor, Johnny LaFountain, Jamie (Fred) Cutting, Debbie, Wanda, Beverly and Donald Jr. She is also survived by her 13 grandchildren who adored their Nonnie , Brendon and Bridget Crowningshield, Mylee and Samuel Roscoe, Caleb and Brittany Yelle, Sophia Taylor, Emily and Jaydon LaFountain, Hailee and Landon Cutting, Brennan Card and Kallie LaFountain.

Pam was a fighter and found hope in every hardship, her drive could move mountains. When Pam wasn't spending time with her grandchildren and family she was playing her guitar and singing with her soul mate, Donnie and their friends. Pamela could win over a room with just her beautiful smile and contagious laugh. Even when times were tough you would still find her smiling. "May the winds of Heaven blow softly and whisper in your ear how much we love you and wish that you were here."
