Pamela Diane (Riebel) Morren, born Aug. 5, 1971, in Chicago, Ill., has gone to be with her Saviour after a courageous battle with breast cancer. She passed away on Nov. 22, 2012, at The Washington Regional Hospital in Fayetteville, Ark.
Pam graduated from Rogers High School in 1989 after which she attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville until 1993. She worked for Sam's Club corporate office and then moved to Dallas, Texas, and worked in the sales division for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals. Then she started her own window treatment business, Sunsetter Blinds and Shutters. After having four children, her love and dedication to her family led her to become a school teacher. She became the head teacher of the sixth-grade class at Fayetteville Christian School where she taught until 2012.
Pam lost her firstborn son in December 1997 and received invitation to become a member of M.E.N.D., a Christian organization in Dallas, Texas, that counsels grieving parents who have lost a child to death. She loved M.E.N.D. and became very involved. She was elected to the board of directors, helping to open chapters in additional states. She assisted with opening the NWA M.E.N.D chapter in Springdale, Ark., where she served until 2010. She became a member of Mission Boulevard Baptist Church being baptized in 2007, followed by the baptism and membership of all her children there.
She was preceded in death by her beloved son, Timothy Schuyler Morren II and father Edward Joseph Riebel Jr.; grandparents, William N. Moore and Caroline of Rogers, Edward Joseph Riebel and Esther Kohlman of Chicago, Ill.
She is survived by her husband, Timothy; daughters, Ashton and Alexa; son, Benjamin; mother, Mary Lynn Riebel; her brother, Edward Joseph Riebel III and his wife, Tanya; and nieces, Jordan Jones and Avery Riebel; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
Pam was a devoted wife, mother, daughter and friend. Her kindness and loyalty to those close to her were most admired characteristics. The faith, love and strength she showed to those around her were such an inspiration and one you immediately sensed upon meeting her. She will be missed by all that knew her, a true, loyal, faithful wife, mother, daughter, and friend!
