Pamela Fahnel

Pamela Jean Fahnel, age 63, of Mondovi, passed away on Saturday, January 14, 2017, at Lake Hallie Memory Care, Chippewa Falls. She was born on July 29, 1953, in Mondovi, one of four children born to Darrell and Bonita (Fedie) Dregney. Pam attended Mondovi Schools, graduating Valedictorian of the Mondovi High School Class of 1971. On August 25, 1972, Pam married Rick Fahnel. To this union two daughters were born. They later divorced in 2012. Pam began a career as a pharmacy tech at the Medicine Chest in White Bear Lake, MN. When she moved back to the Mondovi area, Pam worked as a bank teller at Durand Federal and later became the Mondovi High School secretary, a position she held until 2001. Pam was a longtime member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and enjoyed helping in the planning of the Parish Fall Festival. Pam had an appreciation of the book/movie “Gone With The wind,” which was apparent in her large memorabilia collection. She will be remembered for her ability to make one laugh—even if she didn’t know why—and for being an independent lady with impeccable organizational skills. She was a beloved friend by many and left a lasting impression on those fortunate to have known her. Pam’s greatest joy was her grandchildren, evident by attending as many of their activities as possible. Pam will be sadly missed by her daughters, Kim (Brian) Traun and Katie (Duncan Metzger) Fahnel; grandchildren, Paige, Parker, and Lucas Traun; sister, Joann (Mark) Hendrickson; brother, Jon (Jo) Dregney; also by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends. Besides her parents, her brother, Doug Dregney, preceded Pam in death. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday, January 20, 2017, at 2:00 PM at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in Mondovi. Burial will follow at the Sacred Heart Cemetery, Mondovi. Visitation will be held on Thursday, January 19 from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM at the Talbot Family Funeral Home, Mondovi Chapel, and again at the church on Friday from 1:00 PM until the hour of the Mass.
