Pamela Archer is the widow of WWII hero and actor, Audie Murphy, She died peacefully at her home on April 8, 2010 at the age of 85. She died at her home, Canoga Park, Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California, United States. She was buried at Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California, United States.

Although Pamela Archer was the widow of the most decorated WWII hero and actor, Audie Murphy, she also established her own distinctive 35 year career working as a patient liaison at the Sepulveda Veterans Administration hospital, treating every veteran who visited the facility as if they were a VIP.

Pamela Archer was the second woman Audie got married to.  Audie was married to actress Wanda Hendrix in 1949. Their divorce became final two years later in 1951. Four days later, he married former airline stewardess Pamela Archer (7 October 1919/1920/1923 – 8 April 2010), with whom he had two sons: Terry Michael (born 14 March 1952), and James Shannon (born 1954).

Murphy bred quarter horses at the Audie Murphy Ranch in what is now Menifee, California, and the Murphy Ranch in Pima County, Arizona.

His horses raced at the Del Mar Racetrack, and he invested large sums of money in the hobby. Murphy’s gambling left his finances in a poor state. In 1968, he stated that he lost $260,000 in an Algerian oil deal and was dealing with the Internal Revenue Service over unpaid taxes. In spite of his financial difficulties, Murphy refused to appear in commercials for alcohol and cigarettes, mindful of the influence he would have on the youth market.

In May 1970, he was arrested in Burbank, California, charged with battery and assault with intent to commit murder in a dispute with a dog trainer. He was accused of firing a shot at the man, which he denied. Murphy was cleared of the charges.

On 28 May 1971, Pamela Archer’s husband, Murphy was killed when the private plane in which he was a passenger crashed into Brush Mountain, near Catawba, Virginia, 20 miles (32 km) west of Roanoke in conditions of rain, clouds, fog and zero visibility. The pilot and four other passengers were also killed.

The aircraft was a twin-engine Aero Commander 680 flown by a pilot who had a private-pilot license and a reported 8,000 hours of flying time, but who held no instrument rating. The aircraft was recovered on 31 May. After her husband’s death, Pamela Archer moved into a small apartment and got a clerk position at the Sepulveda Veterans Administration Hospital in Los Angeles, where she remained employed for 35 years.

In 1975, a court awarded Murphy’s widow, Pamela Archer , and their two children $2.5 million in damages because of the accident. On 7 June 1971, Pamela Archer’s husband was buried with military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. In attendance were Ambassador to the U.N. George H. W. Bush, Army Chief of Staff William Westmoreland, and many of the 3rd Infantry Division.
