Pam Littrell went to be with her Lord, Savior, and best friend, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, May 20th, 2023. She was 75 years old. Funeral services will be at Waco Memorial Funeral Home on Wednesday, May 24th at 10:30 am with burial to follow at Waco Memorial Park.
Pamela was born January 5, 1948, in Mesa, Arizona, to Eugene John and Betty Marie Mincks. At an early age her family moved to Houston where she spent her formative years. She grew up in loving, middle-class home with her parents and three brothers. By age nine, she discovered she was blessed with an exceptionally, gifted singing voice and so started a lifelong love affair with music.
Pam graduated from Waltrip High School in Houston where she received many honors as a talented musician and vocalist. Her successes resulted in receiving a full music scholarship from Sam Houston State University where she attended college. This is where Pam met her future husband and the love of her life, Scott Littrell. Pam and Scott married on May 18, 1968. Shortly after their marriage, they moved to San Francisco so Scott could continue his education in podiatric medicine. While there, they joyfully welcomed their first daughter, Michelle. It was not easy for a couple of Texans to become hippies, but they embraced the hip huggers, bellbottom pants, sandals, and long hair. Pamela and Scott had many adventures hiking and biking around the Bay Area. Upon completing his degree, the couple returned to Waco so Scott could join his father’s podiatry practice.
Six years later, Pam and Scott welcome their second daughter, Sarah. At the age of 28, Pam was diagnosed with stage IV Melanoma and given one year to live. Pam received a miraculous healing from the Lord Jesus Christ. She never had Melanoma again. This became her testimony and foundation for her healing and prayer ministry.
Despite being told not to have any more children, four years later they welcomed their son, David. Pam possessed boundless energy and as a stay-at-home mom displayed her skills as an accomplished seamstress, creating beautiful garments for herself and her daughters. She immersed herself in her spiritual growth with the Lord through bible study, prayer meetings, and church gatherings. She furthered her education by completing her bachelor’s degree in psychology and earning a master’s degree in Christian counseling eventually becoming an ordained minister.
As her children grew more independent, she started Pam Littrell Ministries, a ministry for prayer and healing. This ministry gave her the format to share her music, her testimony, and her passion for a meaningful relationship with Lord Jesus Christ. Pam used her spiritual gifts and talents as a pianist, singer, and songwriter to minister to others. Over the years, she taught bible and music courses, organized prayer events, recorded podcasts, and produced and performed six original CDs. Above all she was a people person with a loving and generous spirit. She valued all her relationships with an enthusiasm for leading people to Jesus Christ.
Pam’s life was not just work and no play. She enjoyed reading, sewing, crocheting, talking with friends and family, swimming, riding her bike, and most of all a good walk in the park. From sunrises on Cadillac Mountain in Maine, to sunsets on the beaches of San Diego, they visited every state and national park they could find in search of an outstanding hike and good scoop of ice cream. For their 50th wedding anniversary, Pam was able to fulfil one of her life-long dreams to visit the Holy Land.
In addition to all her engagements and accomplishments, she always made time to be a loving and supportive wife, mother, and grandmother. She had a meaningful and intentional life. Her infectious smile, tenacious spirit, easy laugh, strong character, and wise council influenced many lives. However, nothing touched others more than her angelic voice. Look out heaven, here she comes.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Brigadier General Gene and Betty Mincks, and her older brother John Mincks.
