Pamela E. Thompson, 74, daughter of the late Bill and Phoebe Thompson III, passed away unexpectedly February 13th, 2021. Pam was born May 14th, 1946 and was a lifelong resident of Jacksonville and the local beaches.
Pam always loved helping others. She graduated from Florida State University and was a High School teacher in Duval County until her 1st retirement. She went back to college and earned her Master's Degree from the University of North Florida. She then started her second career as a Senior Librarian for the City of Jacksonville where she worked until her 2nd retirement in 2015.
Pam was a passionate reader and shared her love of books with her family and friends. She loved walking, talking with neighbors, and making friends with every dog she met. Pam is survived by her loving family: sisters: Beth Kirby and Toni Smith; nieces: Angelique Kirby, Danielle Thompson and Mel Smith (Robin); nephews: Bill Thompson V (Catie), John Kirby and Michael Kirby: her precious Grand Niece, Quinn Thompson: and her dear, faithful dog Poppi.

I worked with Pamela at Regency Library, and she never had a bad word to say about anyone. She was a kind and thoughtful person, a joy to work with! My thoughts and prayers for her family during this difficult time.

I am so sorry to hear this sad news. Pam and I were colleagues at the Regency Square Library many years ago. As others have said, the words kindness and generosity spring to mind when remembering her. Her quiet compassion for others also contained a very funny sense of humor that often delighted me. I believe her dear dog then was Toby, and we enjoyed sharing stories of our pets. I have moved from Jacksonville but I am so grateful for a chance encounter with Pam at a grocery store on my last visit almost two years ago. We caught up our news and it was lovely seeing Pam. Such a special lady. My heart goes out to all her family and loved ones. Wishing them comfort and peace.

I'm so sorry to hear of Pam's passing. I worked with her at the San Marco Library. She was a kind and generous person who tried to help as many as she could. A kindness that won't be forgotten. Many prayers for the Thompson family during this time.

I fondly remember Pam from working with her at San Marco. I regret losing touch with her. She was a kind and generous person. She will be missed.
