Pamela J. "Penny" Batka

Pamela J. "Penny" Batka; loving daughter of William J. and Susanne, nee Schank; cherished sister of Carolyn (Robert) Repa, Denise (Darren) Makowski, Kathleen (Chuck) Saldana and William C. Batka; devoted aunt of Amber, Kathleen, Christopher, Samantha and William M.; dear niece, cousin and friend of many. Pam’s true love in life was children! Her nieces and nephews being the ones she was most proud of. But teaching was her calling. She touched the minds and hearts of so many children. She never wanted to take a day off because she loved the kids so much. When she did take time off, she was always sure to call and check in. For 25 years she shared her generous and kind heart with the many children she taught. She loved to tell them stories, she would open an empty notebook and pretend there were words and pictures in it. She would tell the most amazing stories, the children were mesmerized by the anticipation of what was coming next Pam was the life of the party! She is the best friend a person can ask for! Pam loved with all heart. She would give anything to make you smile and assure you everything will be ok. Dancing and singing to “Knock Three Times”, BBQ’s with family and friends, Christmas in July, Toys for Tots Fundraisers, block parties or just a night at the bar, you would find Pam lighting up a room. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic services will be held privately at this time. Penny will be laid to rest at Maryhill Cemetery, in Niles. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations to All Aboard Learning, 4008 W. Rosemont Ave., Chicago, 60646 or Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (fredhutch.org) Info 773-774-0366
