Pamela Michelle Mennie
Pamela Michelle Mennie, 54, of Fannett, died Friday, September 8, 2023. She was born on November 4, 1968, in Sulphur, Louisiana, to Charlene Benoit.
Pam’s unwavering faith in Jesus Christ was the cornerstone of her existence. Pam was a devoted wife, loving mother, cherished daughter, sister, friend and so much more to all those whose lives she touched. Pam grew up in a large family in which she developed her strong sense of compassion and empathy.
Her selflessness and dedication were evident in her role as a mother, raising two beautiful boys, Dominic and Donovan, who meant the world to her. She instilled in them the values of kindness, compassion, resilience, and most importantly family. Dominic and Donovan were her pride and joy. She was a devoted wife to Gary. Together, they created a home filled with love, laughter and warmth, that will undoubtedly shape their son’s future.
She was the shining light to her family and friends spreading love, kindness and compassion throughout her life. Pam’s love and devotion did not stop with her immediate family but extended to her mother, her husband’s parents, her aunts’ uncles and cousins. She cherished her relationship with her three sisters, always ready with an open heart and listening ear. Her ability to empathize and understand others made her a trusted confidant and source of support for her loved ones. She never judged, but she would just listen with a loving heart and give them that big, beautiful smile. Pam’s smile would light up the room. She never met a stranger. Her servant heart knew no end, as she selflessly extended her love and support to those in need, becoming a beacon of hope for many. She found love and solace in her relationship with the Lord and actively served Him through her involvement in her church. Her love knew no bounds for Second Sunday Serve Ministry at her church.
Professionally, Pam excelled as a dedicated healthcare professional. She was a respiratory therapist. She had a positive impact and touched so many people’s lives during her career as a respiratory therapist. She left healthcare after having her boys to become as we would joking say to each other the Chief Family Officer.
Pam had a zest for life that was contagious. She loved to cruise. Pam’s adventurous spirit knew no bounds, She loved to travel with her family and friends and embraced new experiences. She sought to make the most of every moment. She loved cooking, spending time bonding with her family while making meals. Pam’s generous heart extended to her community, where she was actively involved in various charitable endeavors. Whether it was volunteering or helping out with her son’s school, or cooking for the teachers and staff just because she wanted them to feel loved. Helping at local shelters or food kitchens or helping to raise funds for an important cause, Pam’s generosity knew no bounds. Her commitment to making the world a better place was an inspiration to all that knew her.
Pam was the rock and glue of this family. While we mourn the loss of Pamela, we can rejoice in knowing she is with her Lord and Savior. Her caring nature will continue to inspire all those whose lives she touched. Her light shined brightly for Jesus Christ. Her last act of kindness was organ donation, giving the gift of life to others. We can certainly smile knowing that her spirit lives on. Her selfless acts of service to others will remain indelible reminders of the beautiful daughter of Christ she was. Let us not be sad as we mourn the loss of Pam, let us instead celebrate the impact Pam had on all our lives. She will forever remain in our hearts, guiding us with her warm smile and legacy of love as she looks down upon us from Heaven.
