Pam Myer (Rains)

Pam Myer (Rains)



Pamela Myer Harris Rains went home to be with Jesus on March 23, 2023 at age 72. Pamela was born to Joseph and Freda Myer on July 18, 1950 in Houston. She was a spunky little girl who grew into an outgoing teenager. She had many friends, and a smile that would light up a room. At a young age, she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior. She worked diligently the rest of her life growing in that personal relationship and openly living it for others to see. Pamela was a scholar in school, and also enjoyed being a member of the Scottish Brigade during her high school years. While in the brigade, she developed lifelong friendships. Family was very important to Pamela. She looked up to and admired her older brother, Joey, and thought the world of her parents. Make no bones about it, she was definitely a “daddy’s girl” through and through. Pamela graduated from high school and went straight into the working world. She was always one of the very best paraprofessionals. She worked in downtown Houston for an oil and gas company for several years before meeting James Donald (J.D.) Harris, a Houston K-9 Police Officer. They married in January of 1977 and began their life together in Pearland. They welcomed their two daughters, Rebecca Brooke in 1978, and Megan Annette in 1980. In 1982, J.D. was tragically shot and killed in the line of duty. As a young widow, Pamela devoted her every moment to raising Brooke and Megan, and did so with complete grace. She and the two girls continued to attend Faith Baptist Church of Pearland as they had done while J.D. was living.

Pamela was introduced to A. C. Rains by a mutual friend in 1988. She began her journey as A. C.’s faithful and loving wife of 33 years on March 17, 1990. Pamela and the girls moved from Pearland and began their new life in Crockett as the “Rains Family on Briar Lane.” They were immediately welcomed by relatives and friends. In 1996, Pamela began her service, of 27 years, to the Lord through First Baptist Church as a pastoral administrative assistant. Pamela enjoyed the fellowship with fellow staff members, and considered it a blessing to become a part of many families through her unselfish Christlike concern. Throughout her life, she held an unwavering faith in God, which she unashamedly shared with those who surrounded her. Her lifelong goal was to lead as many people to Jesus as she possibly could. Pamela took an honorable amount of pride and joy in being “Gigi” to her three grandchildren, Jace Robert, Gage Ashton, and Lace Rianne. Every chance she had to support them in their activities, or to just love on them for a weekend or an extended time in the summer months, she most definitely did. Pamela has joined her parents, Joseph and Freda Myer; infant sisters, Donna Lynn and Mickey Ellen; husband, J.D. Harris; brother, Joey Myer; mother-in-law, Marguerite Rains; and sister-in-law, Beverly Chiavara in heaven. Pamela was a faithful servant to her Lord and her race is finally won!

She is survived by her dedicated and loving husband, A.C. Rains of Crockett; daughters, Brooke Marshall and husband, Wayne of McGregor, Megan Walber and husband, Shannon of Harper; grandsons, Jace and Gage Walber; granddaughter, Lace Walber, all of Harper; as well as numerous relatives and countless friends.
