August 20, 1959 – March 18, 2020
Ballinger, Pamela, 60, of Belle Plaine, Kansas passed away on Wednesday March 18, 2020 in Dallas, TX. Pam was born the daughter of Gerald and Dora Fraizer on August 20, 1959 in Wichita, Kansas. Pam and John Ballinger were united in marriage on August 6, 1977 in Wichita, Kansas.
Pam Ballinger suffered a pulmonary embolism in Dallas, TX on February 29th after attending the Eagles concert with her beloved husband. She fought hard the last few weeks but there was too much damage to her brain. She went to Heaven yesterday to be with Johnny, Shawn and her parents.
If you didn't know Pam, we'd like to share a little about her. Pam was married to John Ballinger. They met at age 16, fell in love, and married at age 17. Pam gave John three sons, Johnny, Chris and Shawn. Shawn went to Heaven shortly after being born. Johnny and Chris were the light of their parents life. They eagerly attended all events for their sons, with a special love watching the boys play baseball, football and wrestling. Pam was very competitive and loved to watch her boys win!
Chris gave Pam her first grand baby, Rylee. She was so proud to finally be a Grandma and she didn't take this job lightly. She loved every moment she spent with Rylee. After Rylee, Johnny and Chris gave Pam more grand babies to be excited about over the next few years. Angel, Taelynn, Braeden, Korbin and Chloe. There wasn't anything Pam wouldn't do for her grand babies! She somehow managed to make it to all school events, sporting events, birthday parties and more! If her grandsons were playing baseball at the same time, she would bounce from one field to the other. She loved baseball and softball so much! Before attending the Eagles concert with John in Dallas, she traveled to Ft. Worth to watch the last games she would get to see to watch Taelynn play in a tournament. We know she will still be cheering for her precious grand babies from the sidelines in Heaven!
She preceded in death by her parents; sons; Shawn Michael and John Michael. Survivors include her loving husband; John Ballinger; son; Christopher (Brandi) Ballinger, daughter-in-law; Renee, sisters; Candace (Darin) Brown, Penny (Greg) Seiwert, brother; Michael (Gerri) Fraizer, 7 grandbabies and many extended family.
Due to gathering restrictions private family service will be held. A public celebration of life service will be announced at a later date. Burial will be held at Greenwood Cemetery, Wichita, Kansas.
In lieu of flowers memorials can be made to the Pam Ballinger Funeral Fund c/o GoFundMe.

Pam was a very loving person ,her family was her world. She worked for me for 10 years, she done her job and she done it well. Like every job she ever had. She was very good with people.
I went with Pam and John for about 12 years to the thunder game. We would go early and take a walk around the building before the game she loved hockey,
Wichita thunder and Dallas stars. We became very close at that time. She was just like one of my daughters, we talked on the phone a lot.
Pam you will be missed by all of this large family but God wanted another angel .
I will see you again , love you Aunt Phyllis 😇

We met at 15, married at 17 and started a family. Our first was Johnny then Christopher, I remember coming home from a long day of testing concrete and I could not wait to hold them. They would fall asleep on my chest every night, then Shawn who we unfortunately lost at birth. The life I had with you is unforgettable, you cared for me when I was sick and took care of everything. The joy I had with you is unbelievable, no one can ever replace my Pam. The last few days with you were rough, but I know you are in a great place with Johnny and Shawn. I love you forever babe

My greatest memories were spent during our childhood, we all grew up celebrating birthdays and holidays with all our cousins, parents and grandparents. Days spent playing in the sprinklers when visiting or at one of the parks playing on the equipment, I was asked to babysit a few times for Pam, Mike, Candy and Penny when I was a little older and my aunt and uncle had a datenight. Later I worked with Pam cleaning office buildings when I first moved back from Massachusetts and Pam babysat with my son Mark John when he was little. Present time we still enjoyed each other's company at family get togethers, just lately painting parties and family dinners. Pam was usually quiet and reserved but always laughing at something it was so catching, she will be so missed. Heaven just received a blessing. I will miss you, Love your cousin Julie

Thank you for all the love that you have spread , and letting me ripe your love for others.
I remember a time when you were soap opera queen!
Wow what a soap opera we’re living now, covid - 19 , shut downs, nasty germs killing people. 2.5 million people signed up for unemployment within a week.People ask to stay at home, no schools.
My friend you are dancing in the streets of gold, not worried one bit.
Pam had one of the best smiles ever.🙂 and Pam always laughed at my jokes. Bye-bye Pam thank you for being my family. See you again love Nan🙏
