Pamela Lynn Breau, née Read, passed away peacefully with family by her side on August 31, 2022 at The Moncton Hospital. Pam was the daughter of the late George and Orrie (Adams) Read of Moncton, New Brunswick.

Pam attended Horton Academy in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. She worked at the Moncton Hospital in the pharmacy department as a certified clerk for many years, retiring in the mid 90’s. While raising her family, she was actively involved in Girl Guides with her daughters, and sports and activities with her sons. Pam was also an active member of the CWA for many years. Pam loved travelling with Mike and their friends down south and throughout Europe. She graciously hosted many big family dinners and made sure everyone was included. She was also an avid reader and enjoyed her weekly bridge club. Her love of gardening produced beautiful perennial beds that were expanded every year to the delight of all who saw them. Several years after her husband Mike’s passing in 2011, Pam felt like the luckiest girl in the world when she found love again with her partner for the past few years, Sid Smith. Together they travelled to many places, attended sports games, concerts and could always be found laughing and enjoying their retirement.

Pam will be forever missed by her loving partner, Sid; her children: Marc of Banff, AB, Lisa (Mike) of Cocagne, Danielle of Peterborough, ON, and Robert (Janic) of Kinnear Settlement; her nine grandchildren: Caitlin, Sean, Jesse, Adam, Nicholas, Renée, Lucinda, William and Anna; three great-grandchildren: Nora, Rhett and Calla; her siblings: David Read (Peggy) and Bruce Read, Rick Blank, Rodney Blank and Bobby Blank; her sisters and brothers-in-law: Simone and Don Lawrence, David and Angie Breau, Pauline Breau, Peter and Anne Breau, John and Barbara Breau and Frankie Breau; as well as many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, her step-father Jack Blank, her husband Mike and her sister Diane Geddes, Pam was predeceased by her beloved daughter, Suzie, whom she kept alive in memory every day of her life. 

The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude towards the doctors and nurses of The Moncton Hospital for their exceptional care provided to Pam.

A celebration of life will be held at Frenette Funeral and Cremation, 88 Church Street, Moncton (858-1900) on Wednesday October 5, 2022 from 10 am until 12 noon followed by a reception. Face covering is strongly recommended. Interment will be at Our Lady of Calvary cemetery in Dieppe. In memory of Pam, a contribution to the Friends of The Moncton Foundation or a charity of the donor’s choice would be appreciated.
