Pamela Athanas was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, on March 9, 1951. She graduated from Doherty Memorial High School in Worcester, Mass., and received her master's from Northeastern University. After high school Pam lived in Chicago, Boston, and Marblehead.
Pam spent over 40 years as a nurse. Working her way from a CNA as a teenager, to VP of clinical operations by the time she retired. She was a tireless worker because she truly cared for her patients. Pam cared equally about the people she worked with, if you could keep up. Helping the people around her do better for themselves and their patients was what made her special.
Pam loved sailing and being at the beach. Plum Island was her sanctuary and her dog Charlie was her companion. If Pam wasn't at home she was traveling all over the world having the time of her life with family and friends.
She leaves her two sons, Jason Athanas of Amesbury, and Andrew Athanas of Newburyport; and her grandson Nathan Edward Pajak-Athanas; and extended family in the U.S. and Canada.
