1946 - 2021
Las Cruces - Born on December 31st 1946 in Los Angeles, CA, Pamela Joe Mackey died peacefully at home at the age of 74 on January 23rd 2021.
Pam was such a vivacious spirit with a loud and happy personality. She was known as a compassionate and friendly person, and also driven and independent. She could be the "life of the party", and anyone and everyone who met her on a personal level can recall fun and fond memories involving her. Pam's passions included singing, fishing, camping, spending time with her friends and family, and was also an avid animal lover who loved her dogs.
Pam lived her younger years in California training horses and working in the Hollywood movie business for a time. In 1980 she moved to Las Cruces with her son, Jeff Bittle, to operate a dairy farm. She met her husband, Wyatt Mackey, in 1982 and they were together for years before finally marrying 1996. Pam was a member and a past Madame President (2000-2001) of the Eagles Club F.O.E. 4038.
She is survived by her husband Wyatt Mackey; son Jeff Bittle; 3 siblings: Bob Long, Johnny Angel, and Paula Napper; 3 grandchildren: Brayden Bittle, Maddie Bittle, and Bobby Bittle. Also survived by numerous other family members and friends, along with her beloved Boston Terrier, Rigby.
Pam is preceded in death by parents: Betty Long and Donny Long (step-father), and Paul Angel and Smokey Angel (step-mother).
Pam has chosen to be cremated in death and no services are going to be held at this time, but the family would like to hold a celebration of life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family would ask for donations to the Jimmy Durante Fund, which held a special place in Pam's heart. Donations can made to the Lady's Aux 4038.
