Obituaries are so much more than a public notice that a friend or loved one has passed away.

Pamela E. Litchfield

5/3/1960 - 6/27/2018

PEORIA ~ Pamela Ellen Litchfield, 58, of Peoria, passed away at 3:40 a.m. Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at her home.
 
Born May 3, 1960 in Santa Rosa, California to John Charles and Margaret Ann (Weitzel) Thebert, she married Larry Litchfield on November 29, 1989 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  He survives.
 
Also surviving are her children, Ryan Litchfield of Peoria, Scott (Ashley Mowder) Litchfield of Bartonville, Tanya (Rob Schaefer) Witte of Pekin and Shaun (James) Rickey of Dunlap; three grandchildren, Nolan Schaefer and Paxton Schaefer, both of Pekin and Kaleb Litchfield of Bartonville; and two brothers, John Thebert of Creve Coeur and Craig (Nilda) Thebert of Ewa Beach, Hawaii.
 
She was preceded in death by her parents; her infant daughter, Margaret "Margie" Thebert; and one brother, Steven William Thebert.
 
Pam had worked for OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Medicare follow-up for the last three years.  She previously did the same job for UnityPoint Health~Methodist for twenty nine years.
 
Pam was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend.  She loved her life and got along with everyone.  She was a happy-go-lucky person and she rarely complained.  She loved to travel with her husband, Larry.  They made lots of happy memories on their trips together.  Perhaps her greatest joy in life was her grandchildren.  She cherished them and spent time with them whenever she could.  She loved to snuggle with them, play with them, keep them entertained, and rarely missed a baseball game.  She was a very special lady and will be sadly missed by all who knew her. 
 
Pam's final wishes were to be cremated, and her family is honoring her request.  There will be no visitation or services.  Preston-Hanley Funeral Homes & Crematory in Pekin is assisting the family with arrangements.
 
Memorial contributions in her memory may be given to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital at 530 NE Glen Oak Dr. Peoria, IL 61603.
