Pamela Galbreath


Pamela Galbreath, a woman of many hats and a life-long resident of Texas, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 63 in her home in Kyle, Texas on March 25, 2020.
Pam was born in Montgomery, Alabama on July 13, 1956 to Margaret and James Reeder. She graduated from Crockett High School and earned her cosmetology license in 1974, which she maintained as a side business. Pam spent many years processing mortgage loans for various companies.  Eventually, she slowed down and spent her days making long-lasting friends while working at Walmart. After retiring, she embarked on her favorite journey and fulfilled her days making memories keeping her grandkids. 
Pam was devoted beyond belief to her family. On a rainy day, she was the sunshine. No matter the situation, she could bring a smile to your face.  Family was monumental to her; she savored every moment that she spent and every memory that she made with her family and friends. Family gatherings lit up every time she walked through the door excitedly asking for hugs from everyone, regardless of whether you wanted one or not. If you needed help, she was first in line to your aid. Pam, her sister Debbie, and mother Margaret, were three peas in a pod. Nonstop laughter echoed through the room when they were together.   Spending time with her grandkids were the moments she cherished the most. She loved that they were just as sassy and opinionated as she was. Pam was a loving and devoted mother to not only her two beautiful kids, but many others who looked to her as a mom and a role model. Her voice was sweeter than you could imagine and put a smile on your face even when she was livid with you.  Her passions were evident as an avid Elvis Presley lover and the many gambling trips she enjoyed with her mom. She will be dearly missed by so many on this Earth but we look forward to the day where we will laugh and cry with her again on the other side of the gates of Heaven. 
Pam is survived by her mother Margaret Reeder, sister Debbie Vogel and her husband Bobby, brother James Reeder and his wife Susan; daughter Carla Olivarez and her husband Cesar;  son Donald Pannell (DC); Stepson Kevin Pannell and his wife Jenny; grandchildren Cameron Pannell, Adrian Olivarez, Kylie Olivarez and Kolton Pannell; her many nieces and nephews and the special person in her life, Len Galbreath. She is preceded in death by her father James Donald Reeder. 
Pam was laid to rest next to her father at the Lockhart City Cemetery. You may sign the guestbook or leave a condolence at Services were under the care of McCurdy Funeral Home.
