Pamela Evans Howell, 70, of Brandon, Mississippi, passed away Tuesday, June 4, 2024. She was born September 18, 1953 to Jim and Eloise Evans in Jasper County, Mississippi.

After graduating from Bay Springs High School, she attended Jones County Junior College and then the University of Southern Mississippi, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in clothing merchandising and a minor in home economics in 1975.

She leaves behind her husband of 35 years, Aaron Howell; son, Evans Howell; step-sons, Bryan Howell (Pamela), Jeff Howell, and David Howell; 8 grandchildren; 5 great grandchildren; a dear friend, Kathy Dongieux; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins, with whom she had very close relationships.
