Pamela Rae (Evans) Caddell

Evansville - Pamela Rae (Evans) Caddell 71, of Evansville, Indiana passed away on Friday, November 27, 2020 at Gateway Hospital.

Pam was born in Princeton, Indiana on February 20, 1949 at Gibson General Hospital to the late Ida Aileen Evans Wade. She graduated from Princeton High School in 1968 and retired from Deaconess Hospital as a Registered Nurse after many satisfying years of service to the patients she loved so much. There was nothing Pam loved more than being a nurse. She was devoted to each and every patient she cared for and received many thanks from those patients and relatives alike. Pam was described by many of her friends and relatives as a "Giver." She never took away from people and her greatest satisfaction was helping people. She was happiest when she saw the smiles from all the people in her life. She was selfless with her time and talents. Pam was a loving mother, grandmother and wife.

Pam is survived by her husband of 52 years Richard (Rick) Caddell, her daughter Christina Malvern and son Richard William Caddell, grandsons Joshua and Jamey Malvern, Ryan Caddell, and granddaughter Kaylee Ann Grant, and her parents Donna and Robert Grant, all of Evansville, brother Ronald Evans (Rebecca) of Boonville, Indiana, and niece Eva (Mike) Payne of Princeton, Indiana, Sisters Patricia Reinhart and Debra Mabe preceded Pam in death recently.

Pam died of Covid-19. It was her fervent wish that everyone take this horrible disease seriously. This was her last wish to all people.

Because of the danger to people who could contract Covid in a group setting, there will be a celebration of Pam's life at a later date.

Pam was such a loving, kind hearted friend who was taken one year ago today from this earth, way too soon by the horrible virus, Covid. Pam may be gone but will never be forgotten. Miss seeing you and think of you often.

I would like to first offer my heartfelt condolences to all of you family surviving Pamela's untimely passing by way of this pandemic and appreciate her heroic efforts to comfort those for whom her service left her tragically yet valiantly susceptible in the end herself. I am of the same age and although not working as she did in the front lines as she bravely did in service to others - am thankful to have heard about your family's loss on national media. God Bless

Richard-just read the article about the passing of your beloved wife, Pamela. I identified with your loss, not because she died of covid, but because of your history with your wife. I lost my wife, Donna, on November 9, 2018 to pancreatic cancer. We were married 52 wonderful years and met when we were in kindergarten. She was the most wonderful person I have ever known. I, also, never lived alone. Time heals all. The sadness and grief never goes away, but lessens in time. Our wives want us to keep living. My sincere condolences to you and your family, Larry Cohen.

Rick, I was sorry to read about the passing of you wife, Pamela. My wife being a retired Nurse, I can understand Pamela's pride in Nursing. Rick, I still have the picture of our 1960 Princeton American Legion State Champion Baseball Team with your picture featured in it.

With sympathy,

My deepest sympathy to Pam's family. Pam and I were in the PHS Class of 1968 together. She was a dear friend who always had a smile and was such a kind soul. Taken too soon before her time.
