Pamela Kay Billette

Pamela Kay Billette passed away on July 28, 2023, in White Salmon, Washington. She was born on December 13, 1958, in Yakima, Washington, to Ray Rogers and Nancy Rogers (McGraw). Pam was a beloved mother, grandmother, and homemaker who brought joy and laughter to those around her.

As a child and young adult, Pam had great spunk and a bit of a wild streak. She loved to make social connections with others, which was reflected in teachers' comments on her report cards, such as, "talks with friends" and "whispers to her neighbors."

In 1975, Pam married Mike Etcher and they had their first child, Sean in 1976. The small family set off for their next big adventure when they left Washington and moved to Petersburg, Alaska, where their second son Josh was born in 1979.

Her love and family grew when she married Stuart Conn Sr. and became a second mother to his children, Buddy, Stephanie, and Josh. In 1993, Stuart and Pam had a daughter, Lindsey. After many years of moving back and forth between Washington and Alaska while Stuart was logging, commercial fishing and trucking, they settled down in Washington so Pam could care for Stuart while they battled his cancer.

After the loss of her husband, she found love, comfort, and stability in Jeff Billette. They moved up into the mountains along the Snowden Road outside of White Salmon, Washington, and enjoyed many happy years there.

Pam had a good sense of humor and a great laugh. Her warm and caring personality endeared her to family and friends. As a devoted mother and homemaker, Pam dedicated herself to creating a loving and nurturing home for her children, children's friends, and her husband.

Pam had a green thumb and found solace in gardening. In her free time, she loved socializing or talking on the phone with friends and loved ones. She also had a keen eye for finding treasures at yard sales.

Pam was preceded in death by her grandmother, Mildred McGraw; her mother, Nancy Rogers; her husband, Stewart Conn; and her brother, Ray Rogers Jr.

Pam is survived by her father, Ray Rogers Sr., and his wife Nalani; her siblings, Vicki Main and Doug Rogers; her husband, Jeff Billette; her children, Sean and Josh Etcher, Stuart Jr. (Buddy), Stephanie, Josh, and Lindsey Conn; her stepson, Scott Billette; and her grandchildren, Noah, Isaiah, Nikkole, Jeremiah, Stewart, Kennedy, Hunter, Jaylonee, and Kurtis.

Pamela Kay Billette was cherished and will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. May her memory be a source of comfort and inspiration to those who mourn her loss.
