Pamela Jo McGhee, (Mimi, Mom, PJ, Pam), 59, of Rutledge went to be with the Lord on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at her home surrounded by her loved ones. She was a member of Flint Gap Baptist Church. She is preceded in death by her father, Thomas Joe McGhee, sister Lisa Renee McGhee, and grandson Caleb Adam Ridley. She is survived by her mother Carolyn Fields, sisters Linda (Greg) Stoffer, Lori (Danny) Frazier, sons Jason (Ashtyn) McGhee, Lucas (Danielle) Ridley, Joshua (Shauna) Ridley, daughter Jessica (Ramie) Williams. Grandchildren Austin, Jaedyn, and Malaki McGhee, Breanna, Whitney, Alyssa, Hannah, and Jacob Williams, Kelsie Sherwood, Logan, Calista, Caydin, and Mason Ridley, Dawson Stinnett, Alayna, Makenzie, and Isaiah Ridley, Joseph, Joshua, and Samantha Mitchell. Great Grandchildren Amira Ridley, Lakelee Ridley, Legend Ridley, Isabel Ridley, Taiden Williams, and Henslee and Neyland Mitchell. She was also very blessed to have several nieces and nephews that she loved and helped raise as her own.
She was a fighter and she fought a long hard battle with cancer for over 2 years. She always said, “Hey I’m ready because I’m a winner either way.” She has finally won her race and is rejoicing in Heaven. She has held many titles and jobs throughout her life and her absolute favorite of all was being a mom and mimi to her kids and grandkids. She loved her whole family with her whole heart and more than herself. She was the rock of the family. She never met a stranger; she could talk to anyone. Because of her love for people and love to talk then she really shined at her jobs in customer service, as a server and as a CNA. Everyone that met her loved her. She will be greatly missed by everyone, but we all know she is happy and finally free of all her pain and that’s all her family wanted for her.
We would like to give a special thanks to Amedisys Hospice Morristown for all their help for her and our family during this difficult time. They were wonderful with her and with us. We would also like to give a special thanks to her caregiver Candice Foster she may have been with us for a short period but had an instant bond with her and became part of the family and she was always willing to do whatever was needed to help out.
The family will receive friends Sunday, October 11, 2020 from 6-7 P.M. in the chapel of Stetzer-Bales Funeral Home. A memorial service will follow at 7:00 P.M. with Mickey Lusk officiating.
Arrangements by Stetzer-Bales Funeral Home.
