Pamela Elizabeth Ward, (Pammy), age 60, of Mayhill, OH went into the arms of Jesus surrounded by her loving family, Saturday, March 20, 2021 at Adena Regional Medical Center after a hard fought battle with Covid-19.
Pammy was born March 10, 1961 in West Union, OH. She graduated from Peebles High School in 1979 and married the love of her life, Richard A. Ward (Ritchie) in 1980. She worked many years at Peebles Library where she loved her books and her “library ladies/co-workers.” Upon fulfilling her hope of becoming a mother, Pammy left the library to devote herself to caring for her family. Throughout the years, she had many fur-babies she loved dearly but she also had a special passion for providing shelter and care for countless kitties that “Jesus sent to her.” Pammy loved the Lord since she was a teenager and was a member of the West Union Southern Baptist Church where she served as Sunday School Director. She combined her love for her Savior and love for books to acquire a vast knowledge of God’s Word which she took every opportunity to share with her family.
Pammy is survived by her husband of 40 yrs., Ritchie, their three children, Alexander, Maeve, and Lukas, her mother Frances Brannan Ward, her brother Roger Ward, sisters Janette Fitzmaurice and Missy Parker. Pammy also leaves behind many precious nieces, nephews, much loved family members, and friends.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday, March 24, 2021 at Noon at the West Union Southern Baptist Church with Heath Huskey officiating. Burial will follow in the Dunkard Ridge Cemetery. Visitation will be held from 11:00 A.M. till Noon the day of the service.
