Pamela Margaret Daniels Dattilo

December 14, 1949 — May 30, 2024


Pamela Margaret Daniels Dattilo died peacefully at her home in Gautier, MS.


A lover of books, she was a teacher at Escatawpa Elementary and a substitute teacher throughout the Moss Point system. The mother of two daughters, Pam loved horses and made sure her girls had plenty of lessons and time with horses at Singing River Ranch, where their horses, Toby and Munchkin, were boarded.


Kindness was always her go-to attitude, even when a friend’s horse jumped over her car and dragged a hoof over the roof. No complaints—just concern that the horse wasn’t hurt. (She wasn’t.)


A native of Dallas County, Alabama, she graduated from Orrville High School and George C. Wallace Community College.


She met her husband, Phillip, though mutual friends when she was seventeen. He was the love of her life, and they married April 26, 1969. When they first married, they moved to California, but a job at Ingall’s Shipbuilding brought them back to the South where they built a home in Gautier, MS.


Pam is survived by her husband, Phillip; and her two daughters, Dee Dattilo Hearndon (Dennis) and Annie Dattilo Tanner; four grandsons, Cameron (Anna Kate) Boney, Tyler Boney, Aaiden Hearndon, and Baelyn Hearndon; and a brother, Phillip Daniels (Robin) of Valley Grande, AL, and a host of friends who loved her.


She was preceded in death by her parents, Percy and Maybelle Daniels of Orville, AL; and her sister, Marsha Zeller of Flagler Beach, FL.


In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis.


Bradford O’Keefe Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of Pamela Dattilo.
