Pam was a vivacious, witty and fun loving person. Her greatest treasure in life was her family. Known as “Narnie” to her grandchildren, she loved to cook, bake, scrapbook, and enjoy coffee & laughs with friends.
Growing up in Holbrook, MA with her twin sister Priscilla & their 6 siblings, Pam graduated from Holbrook Highschool.
Her husband Don, was truly her best friend. They met and were married, raised their 3 children in Hanson, where they were active in the community for over 30 years. Together, they ran Weownit Restaurant in Pembroke MA; it was known for having “the best fishermen’s platter on the South Shore.” Pam served as a CCD teacher at St. Joseph the Worker Church of Hanson and pursued her passion for home building through a career as a local real estate agent, retiring with Preferred Properties of Norwell. In their recent years, Pam and Don enjoyed traveling across New England to Antique Car shows and walks on the beach on Cape Cod with their dog Max. Pam will be remembered for her boundless energy and her Irish “gift of gab.” She never met a friendly face she didn’t like and led her life devoted to family, spoiling her grandchildren, and spreading kindness and generosity.
