Pam passed away suddenly on September 9, 2022 in Vancouver, B.C., at the age of 74. Pamela (Pam) Susanne Infanti née Wormald was proud to be from the Kootenays. Born in Nelson and raised in Trail, Pam was brought up by her parents Jack and Marjorie. She grew up very active in sports. In the summers, she would swim at Christina Lake or float down the Columbia River; in the winter she would spend her days on the slopes of Red Mountain.
Pam attended Selkirk College in Castlegar and then after graduating from St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, Pam became an extraordinary nurse, recognized for helping countless patients and their families. She was an inspiration to many when she went back to school in her later years, obtaining her Nursing degree and graduating with honours from UBC. Her career included work at Lions Gate Hospital in Post-Surgical and Emergency care, and in the Vancouver community, where she was a fierce advocate for her patients and their families.
Pam loved to garden; indeed, her garden was worthy of being in any gardening magazine. In addition, she challenged herself with creating countless gorgeous quilts, created projects using wool and intricate stiches, and brought images to life with rug hooking. Her garden and crafts brought her peace, joy, and pride. She was a lifelong learner, avid reader and loved music.
Pam and Renato shared 52 loving years of marriage together. Notably, they enjoyed many memorable road trips within Canada. Their love for one another never wavered and they provided endless support for each other over the years.
She was most certainly a dog lover, growing up with Boston Terriers and passing that love for Bostons to her husband, kids and now grandchildren.
Pam is survived by her loving husband Renato Infanti, her son Gordon (Cat) Infanti, her daughter Linda (Richard) Bailey, and her three grandchildren Lucas and Nicolas (Linda) and Maliya (Gordon).
Pam will be deeply missed by many dear friends, neighbours, and work colleagues.
Renato would like to acknowledge the excellent care provided for Pam by the healthcare team during her short stay at VGH.
A celebration of life will be held in the spring, Pam’s favourite season.
