Please Check Back Soon To Watch Pam’s Tribute Video!!


Pamela Sue (McMullen) Beachler, 74, of Loudonville passed away unexpectedly in the early morning hours of Saturday, February 20, 2021 at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital. Pam was born November 19, 1946 to Charles and Genevieve (Strutt) McMullen.

Pam grew up traveling with her family due to her late father’s role as a physician in the US Air Force – a love that continued throughout her life as she enjoyed traveling with her late husband, William “Bill” Beachler. Pam and Bill met at Loudonville High School where she graduated in 1964. After Marrying on September 20, 1965 she attended Ashland College where she earned both her Bachelor of Science in English Education and later her Master of Education in 1986. Pam utilized these degrees to teach reading recovery at McMullen Elementary School as well as English and Creative Writing at Loudonville High School for over 20 years. In addition to Pam’s many teaching accomplishments, she was especially proud of advising and naming the LHS yearbook -“The Crimson Caper”. Pam also directed several Junior and Senior class plays, as well as advised the Varsity and Junior Varsity Cheerleading squads.

Raising their two sons, Charles Xenophon Beachler and Chad William Beachler, Pam and Bill were adamant supporters of all things Loudonville Redbirds. The pair could often be seen cheering on their beloved Redbirds at football games as well as wrestling matches – a program which they were proud to have helped establish at LHS. Their support reached into the interests of their grandchildren, often attending swim meets, softball games, gymnastics meets and wrestling matches in their free time. A supportive wife, Pam helped to establish the family business, Beachler Trucking Inc. where she also assisted with daily operations. Following retirement, Pam enjoyed traveling the US with her husband, often spending winters in Florida and even visiting Alaska in their RV.

Pam is survived by her son and daughter-in-law Chad and Lin Beachler; daughter-in-law Heidi Beachler; sister Cindy (Lou) Gallardo and Brother John (Mona) McMullen; grandchildren Shai, Brooke, Ashlynn, and Cade Beachler, and Jarrod Strine; as well as many dear nieces and nephews.

Pam was preceded in death by her parents Charles McMullen and Genevieve (Strutt) McMullen; husband Bill Beachler; and son Charles Xenophon Beachler.

Pam’s family will receive friends on Wednesday, February 24, 2021 from 1-3 p.m. in the New Hope Community Church, 637 N. Market Street, Loudonville, OH with a funeral service beginning at 3 p.m. Pastor Rob Paterson will be officiating and burial will follow in Greenlawn Cemetery, Perrysville.

  • Chad, I am so sorry you lost your mom. I know how tight you original four Beachlers always were & how hard to be the final one. My heart goes out to you & all the family, especially the grandchildren because I know Pam would’ve reveled in the role of grandmother.

    Now I know she won’t read this, but I’m speaking to Pam & believe she’ll “see” this anyway.

    Oh, Pam! What fun we had for the six years we were teaching colleagues & friends who shared their day-to-day lives. You turned me on to wrestling meets & I introduced you to some wonderful mystery authors. We went out after school so many Fridays where we (over)ate & laughed away the stresses of the week. And what a laugh you had! You always knew how to tap into joy, even when life was presenting you with challenges & worries. You were the family caretaker who took on others’ burdens & fears & found some way to deal with them. I know you leave a gap in the family that no one else will fill with the same love & grace & effort. Bless you, my friend.

  • Dear Family,
    Pam was a special lady. We are so sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts & prayers.
    Peace Be With You.
    Jim & Andi Arnholt

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. We are sorry for your loss. Cherish the wonderful memories. Remember she loved you and knew you loved her, too.

  • I remember Pam best as a college student back at the Ohio State–Mansfield Campus. I was a very green freshman and she a seasoned junior English major taking an English lit course on James Joyce.
    For those unfamiliar with James Joyce, he was the author of the most complicated books that I think we’re ever written. She told me she loved them, and I thought she was the smartest person in the world.

  • Sadden to read about her death. Prayers to Chad and his family. From Chuck to now his mom. Nothing but prayers for the Beachler family.
    God bless

  • What an incredible person Pam was, so unique and helped make the World a better place. She will always be a great memory . My deepest sympathy to the family , especially to Cindy and John that are a part of my childhood memories

  • So sorry for your l0ss. Pam and I were friends since High School. Lots of good memories. Our children were friends too. Sorry I am unable to attend the services but my thoughts are with you all. Bonnie and Scott Weirick.

  • Dear Cindy, John and family,

    I was saddened to hear of Pam’s passing and Paulette and I offer our sincerest condolences to the family. Either Pam was too young for this or life is just moving way too fast.

    Pam and I met in journalism class at LHS. In that class, Mrs. Robinson assigned groups to do practice layout pages for the student newspaper. I was fortunate to be grouped with Pam, who volunteered her house as a place for us to meet and tackle this project. Our finished assignment was well received but, needless to say, whenever we met for this project, hilarity ensued.

    From Pam’s positive, encouraging, and humor-filled approach, I’m sure that her many students came to realize that life on this planet is not just to be enjoyed but it is there to be savored.

    Pam McMullen.

  • Cindy, John, and Chad.
    My condolences to you and the whole family. We enjoyed irritating each other. It was a joy and made the day go better.

  • Mrs Beachler was one of a kind. I enjoyed working the LHS Yearbook under her tutelage and she was a joy to learn from 79’- 82’. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her. Awesome role model. RIP Pam.
