“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou

Pam’s gift to those who were blessed to have bumped into her on this trip around the sun was to make them feel completely supported. If she loved you she was your biggest advocate. Pam’s family was always first. She was unconventional, outspoken, bold and unapologetically authentic.

On Wednesday, June 9th, 2021 at 6:40pm Pam’s work here was done.

Born in East St Louis, Illinois on September 28,1945 Pamelia Anne Eaton has left her husband of 54 years, James “Doc” Eaton and her two daughters, Courtney Eaton and Cristina Eaton Welsh to carry on her legacy in Kennesaw, Georgia. She also leaves behind her seven grandchildren: Ashlin Brennan, Megan Brennan, Aiden Brennan, Grace Eaton, Dominick Eaton, Isabelle Welsh and Shelby Welsh. She is preceded by her son James Corey Eaton.

Her days in high school as the Lead Majorette set her up to inspire the Kennesaw community to come together. She was passionate about our youth and the community. Her involvements are too numerous to list. She left our community better than she found it and was aptly nicknamed the Godmother is Kennesaw.

Her heart was wide open and unfiltered. She always left a seat at the table for an uninvited friend she had yet to meet. Pam lived large, loved fiercely, and gave generously.

Without any gravitas she made her final goodbye and will continue to orchestrate great things for us from above.

The family will be taking visitors at Winkenhoffer on Cobb Parkway, Saturday June 26 from 4PM to 6 PM.

A celebration of her life will be held at the Southern Museum on Sunday, June 27 at 2 PM.

The family strongly requests no flowers. Donations in Pam’s name can be made to The Upstream Foundation 2847 South Main Street Kennesaw, GA 30144 Dr Cris Eaton Welsh
