Pamela Joy Battersby ( nee Carr)
May 6 1947- December 23 2023
Surrounded by her family, Pam passed peacefully. Pam was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and
was a proud Maritimer. She was the beloved wife of the late Edwin Battersby, proud mother to
Andrea (Geoff), Sean (Janine) and Drew (Jill). Loving Nany to Madeline, Rosslyn and Emma.
Pam will be missed by her brothers Darrell (Sharon) , Ian (Barb), nephews, nieces, and friends
Susan, and Patti.
Pam had a lifelong passion for the care of others, especially children. She trained as a nurse at
the Halifax Children’s Hospital and worked in pediatrics at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hamilton.
Pam found her true calling as an educational assistant at Glenwood Special Day School, retiring
after 27 years of service.
Pam was a devout member of the Anglican church, a long time parishioner of St. John’s (the
Rock) on Locke Street. She freely shared her wisdom, love and devotion with her community,
mentoring the youth group for many years.
We would like to thank all the staff at St Joseph’s Villa. We would like to extend a special
thanks to Diane, Devy and all the staff in Birch Trail for their incredible care of Mum over the
last 18 months.
In keeping with her wishes a celebration of life will occur at a later date.
In lieu of flowers the family ask that donations be made to St. Joseph’s Villa, St. Matthews
House or The Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.
