Pamela Gayle Feigenbaum

Pamela Gayle Feigenbaum, 59, passed away peacefully at her Town and Country home, amidst loving family, on October 28, 2021. Pam was the youngest of three daughters born to the late Sylvia and the late Morris Feigenbaum of West Hartford, CT. Pam was so much younger than her two older sisters that she was affectionately  referred to as the “baby sister” throughout her entire life.

Pam graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University with a B.A. degree in Journalism, embarking upon an illustrious career as a newspaper copy editor. Her first position was as a copy editor for Knight-Ridder’s Viewtron Service in Miami Beach, followed by stints at Westchester, NY’s Gannett Suburban Newspapers, the Winston-Salem Journal, and the Chicago Sun Times. She retired in 2018 after 18 years as a senior copy editor at The Washington Post.

Upon retirement, Pam and her dog, Zoey, moved to Town and Country to live with her older sister, Susan (Dr. Jay Pepose) Feigenbaum.  She was quickly embraced by the St. Louis Jewish Community, participating in holiday and Shabbat services, along with social activities, at NHBZ and Chabad of Chesterfield.  Her greatest joy came from serving as a volunteer in the K-1 classroom at Epstein Hebrew Academy, an opportunity that arose through the amazing chesed of Morah Roz Hirschhorn, Shiffy Landa and Itta Boyko.

In addition to her sister Susan, Pam leaves behind her oldest sister, Jane (the late Edward) Ellis of Glastonbury, CT.  Auntie Pam adored, and was equally adored by, her nieces and nephews, Brian and Karen Ilene Ellis, and David, Max, Sam and Morissa Pepose.

The family would like to thank Drs. George Grossberg, Patrick Oruwari and Hani Soudah for their compassion, responsiveness and professional expertise.

A graveside service was held in Hartford, CT.  Charitable contributions in Pam’s memory may be made to the “Auntie Pam Arts&Crafts Fund” at H.F. Epstein Academy, 8645 Old Bonhomme Rd, St. Louis, MO 63132, or to a charity of your choice.  Visit for more information.
