June 21, 1959 – April 19, 2022
Pamelia (Pam) Sue Landon Henry, 62, peacefully departed this life surrounded by family on April 19, 2022. Pam was born at Andrew’s Airforce Base, Maryland in June of 1959. Her father was career army, so she grew up in many different locations throughout the world. Her most vivid memory of returning from Germany, at five years old, was that she cried because there was no “good” bread here. Pam graduated from Prince George High School where she introduced her brother to his future wife. She completed her Bachelor’s degree at Virginia State University. After working in retail management, Pam pursued a career in social services. She worked with people she loved, both colleagues and clients, in Petersburg, Chesterfield, and Hopewell. Of all of the things Pam has done, her favorite life activities were being a wife, mother and Nana. She married the love of her life, David, in Prince George, Virginia on June 6, 1992. They raised four children and were raising their oldest grandson, Jason. Being a Nana to Jason, and then to her two granddaughters, was pure joy for Pam. She never tired of telling how smart they all are, how special they are, what a great artist Jason is, and what bundles of energy and happiness Isabella and Savannah are. It is hard to do justice with words to describe such a life. Pam was a dynamic person who enthusiastically took on every challenge she faced. She fiercely loved and lived life with a zest that endeared her to almost everyone who met her.
Pam was preceded in death by her father, Wayne Landon, and mother, Eva Landon. She leaves to cherish her memory the love of her life, husband, David Henry, Sr.: children, Jeremy Wayne Reiter, Jessica Reiter, David Henry, Jr. (Krista), and Angela Henry; much loved grandchildren, Jason White, Isabella Henry, and Savannah Henry; brothers, Fred Landon, Jr. (Connie), and Jimmy Henry (Emily); in addition to many loving nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life is planned on Saturday, April 30, 2022. A visitation will be held at 3:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church, Hopewell, Va., followed by a service at 4:00 p.m. The family invites you to join us to celebrate a life lived with love. In lieu of flowers, contributions in honor of Pamelia can be made to the American Cancer Society or the Hopewell First Baptist Church benevolence fund.
