A Tribute to Pamela Jane Berry
March 28, 1947 - January 4, 2011
The Staff & Board of Ann’s Place honors the memory and celebrates the life of Pamela Berry, a beloved counselor, facilitator and colleague who died suddenly in January.
Pam was part of the fabric and the growth of Ann’s Place, from her arrival as a volunteer clinical staff professional in 1999 until her recent death. She was a woman of character and of quiet confidence. Pam always drew out the best in people and offered them her strength, her empathy and a gentle kindness. Her capacity for touching people’s lives was far-reaching.
Pam was employed as Family Relations counselor in the Superior Court System and in the evenings at Ann’s Place facilitated a bereavement group and a group for partners of prostate cancer patients. Her dedication to her clients was always a top priority and this work a source of satisfaction. In her own words: “I am energized by the group. It reminds me of the positive side of people – how helpful people can be to one another, even when they are going through some tough times themselves.”
We are grateful to have been part of Pam’s life for twelve years. We extend condolences to her devoted husband and life partner Harold Huberfeld, son Rev. Canon Aaron Huberfeld, daughter Kira Estrade and her husband Carl, and grandchildren Loic and Liane Estrade and to her sister Sandra Berry Gellert.
