Beth Tilton & Mike Castner

We were so devasted to hear of Pam's passing. She was one of the first neighbors we met when we moved here. After that it was all about drinking in our driveway on Halloween and getting those darn snakes out of her garage or garden. She was a beautiful person and quite an artist. We hope it will be an added source of comfort to you at this time of grief to know that all of us care. May you find comfort in your fondest memories.

Deidre and Thierry Carrell

The shock and sadness we feel for you at this time is immeasurable. I shall always regret not coming down last January to meet Pam. We are so sorry for your sadness and loss.

Our beloved sister Pam has untimely passed away and is in the benevolent hands of our Lord and Savior. Pam had so many friends on Amelia Island and surrounding areas. They are now saddened by not being able to see her wonderful smile or talk with her about her family, he meaningful hobbies such as her vivid appreciation of the arts,fantastic gardening and her beautiful antique restorations. We will miss Pam who was truly a dedicated wife to her husband Art, loving mother to her devoted and caring son Nate and to a host of family and affectionate friends. All were welcomed by her warm smile, kind words and affectionate personality. We will truly miss Pam knowing her dedicated Christian Faith will assure she in a better place with the angels,saints and almighty God in heaven. As a tribute to her life on Earth, we have donated in her name to Micahs Place

Thoughts and Prayers are with Art and his family.

"There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone the light remains" This is so true in speaking of Pam. She was very dear to my family (the Walkers) and to my husband's family (the Potters). She will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Pamela Newsome Messler


With extreme sadness, we announce Pamela Newsome Messler, of Fernandina Beach, Florida, who passed away on June 23, 2022, with her husband and son by her side.

Pam, as she was known to friends and family, spent her childhood in Kentucky, the youngest of seven children. She was born December 10, 1958, to Worlie and Dollie Newsome. Locally she was an accomplished hair stylist and small business owner known for her contagious smile, beautiful blue eyes, and the biggest heart which loved so many.

Those blessed to have loved her are too many to name. Pam is remembered by so many, and survived by her family, including her husband, Arthur Gunn; her beloved son Nathaniel Messler and his wife Kristin; her two brothers and four sisters – Worlie Newsome, Jr., Glenda Agonis, Linda Frasure, Dona Newsome, Donald Newsome, Dreama Newsome – and their families; many aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces; five grandchildren (Kamryn, Brittany, Kailyn, Dani and Riley); four greatgrandchildren (Lacey, Kaiden, Kennedy and Everett) and one on the way; and Terry Messler.

Pam expressed her creativeness through beautifully restored furniture and pieces, tending a gorgeous garden, avidly reading, and preparing delicious meals. She loved the beach, antiquing, and her garden. Everything Pam touched became more beautiful, from flowers to the people she knew.

Pam was a kind soul. And while she wanted nothing more than to more spend time with her family and friends, regrettably it was not able to happen one last time. A Celebration of her life will occur July 8, 2022, in the Burgess Chapel of Oxley-Heard Funeral Directors. The family will receive guests at 1:00 pm with the service to start at 2:00 pm. We invite you to celebrate the joy she brought to our lives.
