Pam Lind Obituary
PAMELA ANN THATCHER-LIND Commissioner of the Superior Court County of Riverside On October 13, 1959, a blessed girl was born to William Frank Thatcher and Edith Theresa Thatcher (n‚e Roasio) in the city of Los Angeles. She attended St. Christopher's Elementary school in West Covina and Walnut Elementary School in Walnut. Other than having her knuckles rapped for talking too much in class, she was a model student. She attended Walnut High School and was always the top of her class. In high school, she was the president of Girls League and received several commendations for her work within the school and the community. She attended the University of La Verne earning a Bachelor of Arts, Magna cum Laude with a double major in History and Political Science in three years. Pam then earned her J.D. degree at Loyola Law School, working on law review and as a law clerk at American Title Company. Pam was hired by a large law firm in Los Angeles and was trained in civil law. Soon she was ready to open her own partnership and created a well-respected firm in Orange County. Never one to sit still, she formed her own firm in 1992 and maintained offices in Orange and Riverside Counties. She became an expert in mental health law, wrote numerous articles, and lectured to colleges and professional organizations throughout her career. In 2005, the Judges of Riverside County appointed her to the Office of Commissioner of the Superior Court. She had several assignments during her judicial career culminating in her dream assignment, presiding over a civil department in the Historic Courthouse in Riverside. She married the love of her life, Robert L. Lind, in 1989. They had a son, Lucas William Lind, who pursued a higher education thanks to her encouragement and unwavering support. He continues Pam's pattern of doing his best at whatever he attempts. Pam fought and beat breast cancer from 20012003. In 2012 a new, unrelated cancer struck, and the doctors gave her six months to live. Our Pam was a fighter. There were extensive surgeries, intense chemotherapy and prayer that extended that prognosis substantially. She passed to her Lord's caress on December 11, 2015. She attended New Beginnings Community Church in Norco where her true joy was caring for babies. Pam was a member of a wonderful family. She leaves behind her mother, Edith, husband Robert, son Lucas, brother Matthew Thatcher (Anna), and several nieces and nephews. An 11 a.m. viewing will be held at Queen of Heaven Cemetery on December 18th, followed by a service at 12:30 p.m. and a graveside ceremony. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Convoy of Hope at convoyofhope.org.
