On a warm late-summer day in 1951, in Lebanon, Illinois, Pam leapt into the arms of her loving parents, John (Doc) Hill and Maureen (McWilliams) Hill. Too soon she leapt into the welcoming arms of her Savior, attended by her adoring son and dearest friend, Guy Morgan.
In between, Pam determined to set the world afire and make a difference. Doc was an Air Force physician and full colonel, so she found herself at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, attending Cabrillo High School, where her vivacity, intensity, beauty, and athleticism put her on the cheerleading squad for the Conquistadores.
She attended William Woods (nee Female Orphans College) in Fulton, Missouri, before coming to Colorado Springs, where she was a 1970 Debutante, catching the eyes and the hearts of a bevy of would-be beaux, but choosing a dashing USAFA cadet, Chester (Skip) Morgan, whom she married in June 1972, making him a lifetime winner.
Finishing her degree at Colorado State, Pam followed Skip to Maxwell Air Force Base, where she was the Squadron Officer School Sweetheart, then to Offutt AFB, NE, then to Austin, Texas. There she became the only woman in recorded history to be able to do the two-step to Orange Blossom Special through all four stanzas from 110 to 160 BPM. While there, Guy made his appearance, a son she wanted and loved with such intensity that there was room for no other.
It was at this point that Pam took off in her quest to put her considerable talents as an advocate to work for the nuclear power industry, landing a job as the PR chief for Energy Fuels Nuclear. Inside the Beltway, she resolutely braved the flood of political correctness throughout the ups and downs of fickle industry fashion. In no small measure her efforts helped to preserve a critical capability as the country she loved came to look increasingly to renewable power.
Along the way she made friends-lots of them-each of whom was made to feel their importance through the warmth of her incandescent smile. That smile shone through from her soul, projecting the joyful spirit that resided within. It had no equal on earth.
Pam leaves behind to cherish her memory, mourn her loss, and look forward to a glorious reunion in Heaven her brother Jay, son Guy, and three beautiful granddaughters, Brianna, Callie, and Maddie, who themselves are blessed to wear that unmistakable smile.
