Pamela Fox Obituary

Pamela Sharon (Wolf) Fox, of Glen, New Hampshire, died on November 7, 2023, in Boston, Massachusetts. She was born on June 12, 1949, in Buffalo, New York, to Albert J. and Shirley H. (Patton) Wolf. She passed away after a short illness that followed her last trip with her beloved husband, I. Gary Fox, to Crete, which she remembered for its pink beaches, amazing salad, sweet cakes, kind people, and the inspiring ruins of Knossos. Pam was proud of her work in the anti-war and labor movements of the 1970s; her participation in care for people with HIV during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s; her commitment to scientific investigation, hospital safety, and infection control in nursing and leadership roles at Salem Hospital, Mass General Hospital, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. By the time of her retirement, she had more than 40 years of service to the Mass General Brigham system. Pam attended Boston University, received a BSN degree from Salem State University, and received master’s degrees from Lesley University and Boston University. Until the end of her life, she was active in service for her community and the world—whether that was volunteering at Memorial Hospital in North Conway, New Hampshire, or the Pope Memorial Library, marching for climate justice, or canvassing for the Democratic Party. She was completely committed to her family, including her three daughters, her stepchildren, and her many grandchildren. She made sure to support her children and grandchildren in all of their many passions, driving them to lessons and showing up to appreciate them, whether that was swimming meets, play performances, piano recitals, soccer games, flute lessons, or tuba marching band competitions. Shopping was one of her many love languages, and she loved to celebrate Christmas by getting the whole list. She shared a love for the outdoors with her family—whether that meant hiking in the Rocky Mountains and avoiding mountain lions; searching for waterfalls in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee; or getting bitten by black flies on Mount Washington. She and Gary were often found skiing, biking, or kayaking in Cape Cod, Nova Scotia, or close to home in the mountains, lakes, and rivers of New Hampshire. She was intensely brave and curious about the world. She was an avid reader and Netflix fan. While she did not travel overseas until she was 36, she never looked back. With her husband, Gary, she climbed the pyramids in Egypt, took water taxis in Venice, basked on the volcanic beaches of Guadeloupe, and traveled across Belize, the Caribbean, Costa Rica, England, France, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Portugal, Slovenia, and Spain. Pam will be remembered for her love, curiosity about the world, her dogged devotion to learning new things, her intensity and drive, her sense of responsibility to others, and her commitment to showing up for her children (and grandchildren), along with her perfect hair, her abiding ability to question authority, and love for a certain secret beach in New Hampshire. She was predeceased by her stepdaughter, Stacy Anne Fox, and both of her parents. She will be missed by her beloved husband, I. Gary Fox of Glen, New Hampshire, along with her daughters Elizabeth (Bayne) Stein (Samuel Stein) of Silver Spring, Maryland; Jessica Bayne of Rockland, Maine; and Robin Bayne of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and her stepson, Brian Fox (Kathleen Fox) of Wakefield, Massachusetts. She also leaves her two sisters, Sandra Wolf of Oakfield, New York, and Melissa Wolf (Paul Lamarre) of New York City. She will be remembered by her grandchildren Alice Morgan, Atlas Stein, Caleb Stein, Ella Ryan, Emily Quinn, Lincoln Fox, Nolan Fox, and Zachary Quinn.
