Pamela Marie Pell-Gordon, 62, of Fredericktown, PA died peacefully in her sleep on Friday, December 17, 2021.

 She was born June 15, 1959, the daughter of the late Charles Daniel and Anne Marie (Narick) Pell.

 Pamela graduated from West Virginia University Law School in 1984, where she was a member of Moot Court.  She came from a family of lawyers, including her son, Jonathan Gordon, who graduated from George Washington University Law school, her niece Anne Marie, as well as two Uncles, Steve and Emil Narick.  Pamela practiced law in Marshall and Ohio County, W.Va.

She is survived by two children, Jonathan Gordon, of Wheeling, WV and Daniel Gordon, Myrtle Beach, SC; two sisters, Rebecca Schollenberger-Cherouny, of Virginia, and Cassandra L. Tominack, of South Carolina; her nephew, Charles M. Schollenberger and family; and niece, Anne Marie (Tominack) Sibal and family, as well as her cousins.

Pamela loved music, teaching herself how to play the guitar.  She frequently supported Mass both instrumentally and vocally. She was an athlete, cheerleading and running track at John Marshall High School.  Additionally, she was in the National Honor Society during high school, graduating Magna Cum Laude.

Pamela was also very compassionate, working as a counselor with underprivileged children. She also tirelessly served the Catholic Church in the diocese of Wheeling giving free legal aid and other assistance whenever called upon.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, December 29, 2021 at 10:00 AM at Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church, Mt. Olivet, Wheeling, WV 26003. Interment will follow at Mount Calvary Cemetery.

Sorry to hear of Pam’s passing. We were a tight knit class of 15-16 kids at our Lady of Peace. All very competitive. I remember Pam and the girls in the class being good at everything from singing, athletics and classwork. What fun times and great memories those were at Our Lady of Peace. May she rest in peace. I’m sure she is singing in heaven

I have so many great memories with Pam, as we were best friends from third grade through part of college. We spent a lot of time together while growing up: we played together, biked together, sang together (in church, 4-H and in a Croatian band!), were cheerleaders (OLP & JMHS) and on the track team; also roomed together for a while during college. We got into some mischief along the way, but nothing too crazy; we remained good students.
Pam was very intelligent and she had a great sense of humor, too. She was fun to be around.
Though I haven’t seen her for many years, I’ll always treasure the good times we had and the beautiful soul that she was.
My deepest sympathies to all of Pam’s family members. May you find comfort in knowing that she is at peace.
