Obituary of Pamela Parsons Collings
It is with heavy hearts and a deep sense of loss that we announce that Pamela Parsons Collings, age 70, passed away at Hospice House in Fredericton on Saturday, April 25, 2020 after a brief battle with cancer.
Pamela loved many well, and was well loved by many. Her smile, positive optimism, loving generosity, community mindedness, no nonsense take charge approach, energetic enthusiasm, and fun sense of humor will be remembered and missed. Whether excelling in her career, which for a season brought her from Fredericton to Calgary, or in being involved on boards or in volunteer activities after returning to New Brunswick, Pamela lived a full life. Pamela particularly enjoyed life amidst the Grand Lake community. She liked playing golf and Bridge, generously sharing a lobster and mussel meal with visiting family and friends, having fun with others and laughing lots, spending time with her dogs, and being involved with her church community in Minto. Her children consider themselves privileged to have been blessed with the God-given gift of such a wonderful mother (Psalm 139:13) who was a mom, a friend, a cheerleader, a teacher, a hero, and more.
Pamela was predeceased by her father Roger Webster, mother Francis Finnamore, brother David Webster, and husband David Collings.
She is survived by her partner, Dwaine Hargrove, who she loved dearly; by her children (with Trueman Parsons): Tamara Graham and Noah (Kim); by her stepchildren: Leann, Michelle Martin (Gerard), and by Heath (Pamela); by her grandchildren: Zachary, Jacob, Chloe, and Sarah, and Christopher, Diedre, Nicole, Kaitlynd, Courtney, and Ben; and by several great-grandchildren and other relatives.
Thank you to all the staff at Hospice House in Fredericton for the compassionate and loving care expressed toward Pam.
A grave-side service will take place 11:00AM Thursday, September 9th, 2021 from Saint Michael and All Angels Anglician Cemetery, 718 Pleasant Drive, Minto, NB.
