christensenPamela Sue Bryan Christensen, 62, of Duncanville TX, died on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 at her home in Duncanville after a battle with aspiration pneumonia. She was born March 27, 1954 to Jesse James Bryan and Florence Edith Locke of Paris, TX. She was the youngest of 8 children and their second daughter. She grew up with nephews her age and older.

She had a passion for serving others, she loved children, and she was an excellent cook. As a young woman, she trained at Paris Junior College to work as a nurse’s assistant, a job she reluctantly left after her second daughter was born. She then joined the Parent-Teacher Association and assisted with fund-raising efforts. They honored her service with a lifetime membership to the PTA. After her children were old enough to look after themselves, she returned to the workforce again as a cafeteria worker for Duncanville Independent School District. She was given an award for Best Part-Time Employee.

Pamela was preceded in death by her husband, David, her parents, and six of her siblings.

Pamela is survived by her children, Amy and Sarah, her brother, Joe Bryan and her sister, Patsy Hooks.
