Pamela Reeves Obituary

Pamela Irene Reeves, 81, of Shelbyville, Illinois, affectionately known as Pam to her friends and family, passed away peacefully on December 16, 2023, in Shelbyville.  Born on October 28, 1942, in Decatur, the daughter of Forrest and Irene Ridgley.  Pam was a cherished daughter, loving mother, and doting grandmother whose warmth and kindness touched all who knew her.

She graduated from Cerro Gordo High School, fondly remembered by her classmates for her spirited nature and bright smile. Pam married, Robert "Bob" Reeves, who sadly preceded her in death on December 30, 2010.

Pam's entrepreneurial spirit shone brightly as she owned and operated Reeves Lure Company in Lovington from 1985 until her well-deserved retirement in 2019. Her dedication to her work and the community she served was evident in the success of her business and the esteem in which she was held by her colleagues and customers alike.

Her legacy is carried on by her son, Cody (Kelly) of Shelbyville, and her grandchildren, Cory Reeves of Brownsville, TN, Cale Reeves, and Madison Reeves, both of Macomb. Pam also leaves behind her brother, Bill (Connie) Ridgley of Panora, IA; brother-in-law, Terry (Mary Kay) Reeves of Oakley; daughter-in-law, Michelle Reeves of Macomb and two nephews, Trent (Tiffany) Reeves and Matthew Reeves, both of Decatur.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, son Clint, and a daughter in infancy.

She was a member of the Red Hat Society and the Crimestoppers, both in Decatur. Her love for reading provided her with a wealth of knowledge and a quiet refuge, which she treasured deeply.

Private family services will be held.  Lockart-Green Funeral Home in Shelbyville is assisting the family.
