Licensed Funeral Director & Office Administrator
Pamela Barnard grew up in a small town where everyone knew everyone. People from all over were familiar with the term Wide Awake Wylie. Her family never moved and lived in the same home all of her upbringing.
Pamela loves Franklin County because it reminds her of her small-town roots in Wylie. She feels at home in Mount Vernon and proud to raise her girls in this community. The Barnards have lived in Franklin County for many years.
After graduating High School in Wylie, Texas, Pamela attended Ozark Bible Institute and College in Missouri, where she received her B.A. in Biblical Literature. She is a graduate of North Texas Community College and is a Licensed Funeral Director.
Pamela has worked many jobs: Her first job was picking okra, secretary to a hospital administrator, medical coder to numerous doctors, office administrator to the principal at a private school where she also taught the high school level for nine years and worked as a caregiver to several clients. She is a life insurance agent and has worked with medical and life insurance companies since the age of 17.
Pamela is married to Ronnie Barnard for almost twenty-three years. They have three daughters; they have raised a niece that they count as one of their own as well. They are faithful members of Lake Chapel House of Prayer church.
Pamela enjoys doing life with her husband, Ronnie, and the girls. Together they feel called into the funeral ministry as they serve families. They clean a business in town, work at the church, and visit the elderly. They have volunteered at the Bountiful House and the Lunches of Love program. She has volunteered as a church camp counselor and all activities her daughters are involved in. Pam is a proud member of the Mount Vernon Key Club and on the Mount Vernon Main Street Alliance. She attends the monthly meeting of the First Baptist Church Heart to Heart group and many other community events. On Friday nights you will find her family in the football stands cheering on the Mount Vernon Tigers.
The girls are Pamela’s greatest accomplishments. She teaches them to be kind and serve others as she homeschooled her children. The girls also love serving others in the community.
During her spare time, she sleeps and cleans the house.
