Pamela Tighe Obituary

Pamela Kay Tighe, 74 of Champaign and formerly of Homer, passed this life to the next on Tuesday, November 21, 2023 at her home, surrounded by her family. Visitation will be from 4-7pm on Monday, November 27th at Kruger Funeral Home, 10 E. Williams Street in Danville. Mass will be at 10:30am on Tuesday, November 28th at Holy Family Catholic Church, 444 E. Main Street in Danville with Father Loftus officiating. Following services Pamela will be laid to rest at Resurrection Cemetery.

   Pamela was the youngest of three born December 30, 1948 in Danville to Clifford and Violet “Lucille” (Smith) Hoag. She attended Jamaica area schools, graduating in 1967 and going on to Western Illinois University where she graduated with a Bachelors in Education in 1971.  Throughout the years Pamela taught at Homer and Heritage school districts, retiring after nearly thirty years.

   Pamela enjoyed raising her family and making their house a home. She enjoyed spending time on the lake in their boat, spending their winters in Florida, and a good water aerobics class. Pamela never missed her grandchildren’s plays and football games, and was their biggest fan. She attended St. Patrick’s Church, as well as St. Charles Borromeo Church of Homer, and was a member of Sigma Sigma Sigma, where she developed friendships that she carries through to this day.

   On December 18, 1971, Pamela married Tim Tighe at St. Patrick’s Church and the two have shared just shy of fifty-two years by one another’s sides.  She leaves behind her loving husband Tim; her daughter: Tara (Jim) Chandler; son: Timothy (Amy) Tighe Jr; five grandchildren: Elizabeth, Nathan, and Jacob Tighe, Carly and Cassidy Chandler; a brother: Clifford “Clint” Hoag Jr; and a sister-in-law: Norma Hoag. Pamela was preceded in death by her parents, a brother Terry Hoag, and a sister in law Sharon Hoag.
