Gay Pangburn



Gay Carole Fisher Pangburn of Greenfield, IN, went to her eternal home in Heaven on Feb. 28, 2024. Gay was born in Indianapolis on July 7, 1944, to the late Walter and Anita Wilhite Fisher. She spent her childhood in Cambridge City, IN. She graduated from Lincoln High School in 1962, and from Indiana University School of Nursing in 1967. She worked as a Registered Nurse at Coleman Hospital, Dr. Mark Knopp’s office and Hancock Regional Hospital.

On August 25, 1968, she married William Pangburn and he survives. They had 55 1/2 wonderful years together. They were blessed with three children who all survive, Dawn and her husband Charlie McAtee, Denise and her husband Tim Bingham, and Eric and his wife Tara Pangburn. Gay is also survived by her siblings Garth Fisher and Gleela Miracle.

When Gay became a grandmother, her grandchildren and family began lovingly calling her “G.G.” The name G.G. stuck and she was the best, most loving G.G. to all her grandchildren: Dawn and Charlie’s kids – Cory and Megan Poppelwell, and their sons Emmett and Oliver, Matt McAtee and his fiance Jessica Simpson, Andrew and Audrey McAtee; Denise and Tim’s kids: Megan and Garrett Day and their children Harley, Heidi, Ruby and Hank, Noah, Dalton and Devin Evanoff, Jackson and Alyssa Bingham; and Eric and Tara’s kids: Evan, Aslynn and Rex Pangburn.

Gay was a long time member of Post Road Christian Church and in recent years attended Park Chapel Christian Church. In retirement Gay loved volunteering at many places. She volunteered at Hancock Regional Hospital, for the Greenfield Read Up Program at Weston Elementary, at J.B. Stephens Elementary, Unraveled and MOPS at Park Chapel Christian Church. She also traveled on mission trips to Haiti and to House Edelweiss.

Anyone who knew GG knew that she was one of the kindest, most loving people. Her ability to

show love and kindness to others was unmatched. She was known to hug random Target cashiers and strike up conversations with strangers in the grocery store aisle. Her granddaughter once said, “There is sweet and then there is G.G. sweet”. That quote summed her up well.

A strong faith In Jesus, showing kindness and love to others, and loving her family so well were the hallmarks of her life. Memorial contributions can be made to FAME ( and TCM (, both groups that Gay had served on mission trips.

A Celebration of life will be held at a later date at Post Road Christian Church.

Funeral Directors, Greg Parks, Sheila Parks, Stuart Parks, and Darin Schutt are honored to serve Gay’s family.
