Obituary for Pamela "Pam" DiVanna

Pamela “Pam” DiVanna was the youngest of two daughters born to George Blair and Ethel Blair Reilly (who preceded her in death) on March 24, 1963 in Queens, NY. From a toddler, she affectionately called her doting big sister, the late Sondra Elaine, “Sa Ta”.

A quiet person who walked in sweet humility, Pamela always shined in her engagement with people, places, and in project management. It was with these competencies that Pamela enlisted in the United States Army as a young woman. Throughout her enlistment, Pamela demonstrated excellence in her nine military assignments. Pamela served her country well in places such as Fort Jackson, South Carolina, Fort Benning, Georgia, Camp Edwards, Korea, 97th General Hospital in Frankfort, Germany, and Fort Sam Houston, Texas.

During and after active duty, Pamela flourished in her studies in nursing and military science. Pamela earned her Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in Nursing; and her Master’s Degree in Military History. During her tenure in civil service, Pamela was instrumental in making essential improvements regarding supplies, equipment, and protocols for portable military hospitals. It was under Pamela’s leadership that military hospitals were able to greatly improve the quality of service they provided for our military service people domestically and abroad.

Being such a blessing to others, the Lord provided Pamela to be blessed with meeting and marrying the love of her life Michael DiVanna. They were married on June 15, 2012. Pam and Mike shared a love that could clearly be seen and appreciated. Together they laughed, enjoyed music, and being best friends. They traveled the world and were able to visit the places Pam loved to read about. Together, they joined and enjoyed the fellowship of the Lower Marsh Creek Presbyterian Church under the leadership of Pastor Dr. Mark Englund-Kieger. Together they fought a good fight, kept their faith, and were ready to be transitioned.

Although Michael preceded Pamela in death, their love and passion for one another never died. In like manner, we, Pam’s family, will continue to embrace the life and legacy of our beloved Pamela. Online obituary and condolences available at monahanfuneralhome.com.
