Pamela Jean Marsh, age 84, currently of Sackville, New Brunswick, formerly of Bonavista and St. John's, Newfoundland, passed peacefully away at her home on Tuesday, December 6, 2022 with her daughters Karen and Krista by her side after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease in 2009.
Born in Bonavista, Newfoundland, she was the daughter of the late Albert and Emily (Ford) Little.
Pam was a teacher, school principal, church organist, avid berry picker, accomplished baker and talented knitter and crocheter.  
Pam had an abundance of energy, walking fast wherever she went.  Pam loved company and prepared many delicious Jiggs Dinners for friends and family over the years, taking salt meat, split peas and spices with her on her travels.  She made the best tea buns, gingerbread cookies and lemon meringue pies. 
Pam had a great sense of humour and positive attitude.  She was an active member in her church and United Church Women her whole life long and enjoyed Salvation Army services on Sunday evenings.  
Pam lovingly cared for her husband and then her mother during their respective illnesses.
She loved the outdoors, traveling, playing games and ice cream.  Pam adored her daughters and grandson, and they loved her dearly in return.  Pam was an amazing aunt, sister and friend.
Pam will be greatly missed by her daughters Karen Marsh and Krista (Karl) Thompson, both of Sackville, New Brunswick; grandson Max; sisters Grace Hillier, Wolfville, Nova Scotia and Valerie Strickland, Bonavista, Newfoundland; sister-in-law Genny Little, Corner Brook, Newfoundland; as well as several nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews and her special friend Meta Bullen, St. John's, Newfoundland.
She was predeceased by her loving husband Max in 1994; brother Carl Little; brothers-in-law Charles Hillier and Douglas Strickland.
Special thank you to Dr. Véronique Robichaud and the nurses of the Sackville Extra-Mural Program for their care and support over the last eight years.
