OBITUARY

Pamela Ann Fitzpatrick

March 8, 1947July 31, 2018

Pam Fitzpatrick, a native of Southern California, settled in Monrovia in 1987 with three of her four children. In 1994 Pam adopted her one and only daughter, Katie Anne, and the family was complete.

By the summer of 1991 sisters Cindy and Jennifer had talked Pam into opening a retail store in Old Town Monrovia. After spending twenty-three years in the communications industry, the career change from General Manager to entrepreneur was to be a semi-retirement for Pam; but it was soon clear that was not to be.

During the next decade Pam served as both the President of the Monrovia Chamber of Commerce and the Monrovia Old Town Merchants' Association (1997); as a Community Services Commissioner, and as co-chair of the Foothill Unity Center Auxiliary. She is currently the President of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Foothills.

In 1994 and again in 1995, Pam traveled with other community volunteers and city staff to Oakland, and then on to Cleveland to help Monrovia win the title of "All America City".

As an active member of the City-Chamber sponsored Economic Development Committee, Pam has worked to find ways to revitalize Monrovia's Old Town district, while making sure that the changes did not diminish downtown's old-time charm.

During her "spare" time, Pam is a guest lecturer at Pasadena City College's Business Lecture Series. She also volunteers her time to speak at Andrew Jackson School every year to the Best Friends Program, a national program inspired by Barbara Bush.

Pam is a recipient of the Dick Lord Award, and was honored last year by State Senator Jack Scott and Assemblymembers Carol Liu and Dario Frommer as an outstanding community volunteer.

An accomplished commercial artist, Pam has appeared on both CNN and the E!Channel as an authority in the collectible gift market. She divides her leisure time between her four grown children and her two grandsons.

The moment you think of the person that just past away your heart hurts, you fine your self breathing hard, and confuse. When I think of Pam, I remember all the wonderful memories that rush back to me and warms my heart. She was wonderful person and I wish was able to tell her more often, for everything she did for me.
I remember serving in Iraq, working hard, making it day by day, and staying focus on my mission. Day's blended to each other till I received a wonderful care package from a wonderful woman name Pam. I got all choke up. As my eyes got blurry and the tears ran down my face as I read her letter. Her kind words would warm my heart and comfort me in does dark days. She always knew what to say and what to do. My condolence to Pamela family and friends. She was truly one of a kind and I will truly miss Pam.

Pam served as the President of the Board of Directors of Santa Anita Family Service for the last three years through some very difficult times. Pam was a steady influence through thick and thin as we traversed those difficult waters together. The bottom line was always the same: we are here to help those who need the help. The focus was always on our clients and how we can better serve them. Thank-you Pam for everything, your guidance, wisdom, compassion, and most of all your friendship.
