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.
