Pamela Maddox

February 14, 1952 — October 23, 2022

Birmingham, AL

Pamela Joan Terry Maddox, 70, of Birmingham, Alabama, took her last earthly breath and her first breath in Heaven on October 23, 2022, with her family by her side.  Pam fought a very courageous battle with pancreatic cancer over the last six months.

Pam was born in Decatur, Alabama on February 14, 1952. She graduated from Athens High School in 1970 and graduated from Auburn University where she received a Bachelor of Education in 1974. Pam touched many lives while teaching at St. Peter’s Catholic School and later at Briarwood Christian School.

Pam was a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. She treasured her children and embraced every moment raising them. She especially loved her role as Grammy. She had a vivacious personality and always made people around her laugh and was a ray of light. She also loved Auburn University and she provided strong leadership to the Greater Birmingham Auburn Club. Pam was especially proud to have helped create the first GBAC Distinguished Awards Dinner for the club. Her talents were evident in the many details she lead for the event.

Pam had a solid faith that could not be shaken. She continued to praise Jesus through her illness; specifically praying for all to receive the peace that only He can provide. She will be missed by many but there is peace and joy that surpasses all, in the love and presence of the Almighty God our Father. “For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.” Psalm 36:9.

Pam is survived by her loving husband of 51 years, Elon W. Maddox, Jr., son, Elon W. (Jacqueline) Maddox III, mother, Winnie Murl Terry, sisters, Belinda Terry, and Angie (Robin) Christopher, brother, Kenny Ray Terry and grandson, Elon W. Maddox, IV, and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.

Pam is preceded in death by her daughter, Meredith LeAnn Maddox, her father, Ray Gene Terry and her grandson, Deacon Wesley Maddox.

The Celebration of Life Service will be held at Mountain Brook Community Church on Thursday, October 27, 2022, at 2:00pm, with Family Pastor Skot Montgomery of Mountain Brook Community Church and Pastor Rick Ousley of Grace Point officiating.  An internment will be immediately following the Celebration of Life Service at Jefferson Memorial Gardens on Highway 11 in Trussville.  All arrangements are being handled by Jefferson Memorial Gardens, Trussville, AL.
