It is with broken hearts that the family of Pamela Frances Barnes of Topsail, NL announce her passing on July 2, 2020, surrounded by family.
Predeceased by her father Weston Barnes. Left to mourn are her mother Patricia Barnes, her dog Tessa, sister (and best friend) Janet Hamel(Wendell), brothers Russell Barnes(Bonnie), and Ralph Barnes (Chelan), nephew Ben Hamel, nieces Natasha Barnes, Brooke Hamel, Danielle Sullivan, and great nephew Weston. Also celebrating her life and mourning her loss are many close cousins, friends, and extended family.
Pam lived her life with a strong faith and humbly giving to others; suitably starting her career as a Registered Nurse, sharing her words of wisdom and love to all those who entered into her life. If you needed her for a great conversation, support through a difficult time, or a long strong hug she provided all of this and more.
Pam was a ray of sunshine to all those who had the pleasure of knowing her. We will remember her for her caring, loving ways, her soulful laugh, her healing presence, and genuine concern for your wellbeing. Words cannot express how deeply we will miss her, but her impact will be everlasting.
Expressing many thanks to our family for all of the meals and treats throughout these last few weeks, the loving, amazing staff of St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital. Beginning with Dr. Reddy and Dr.Butler, the loving Covid dancer Brenda, all of the 7 West staff; Ron Corcoran, the incredible nurses, respiratory therapists, housekeeping staff, food service workers, and Sister Betty who became like family when her family were not allowed hospital visits; covid screening staff, Father Keeping, porters, and St Luke’s staff for all of their help and compassion with her mother during this strict isolating time.
Due to Covid restrictions funeral service is postponed until a later date.
Expressions of sympathy may be made in the form of donations to St. John the Evangelist Church, Topsail.
Always loved, never forgotten.
