A special Homecoming─what a blessing. It is with great sorrow we share that Pamela Theresa Akɔosua Addo passed away peacefully at home in the presence of her family on the morning of December 23, 2020. She was the beloved daughter of Albertha Josephine Addo and Newton Kofi Addo and cherished sister of Kwame Addo (Madalena), Elizabeth Addo, Judith Addo Van Vliet (Mark) and Patience Addo.
Auntie/Tia Pamela was deeply loved by her nephews Theo, Kofi, Greyson, Ethan, Noah and niece Jordyn. She was loved by her many cousins both in Toronto and England.
For Pamela, her family was everything. Her unconditional love for her family was in abundance. For the Addo family, Pamela was everything. She was deeply loved by her family and friends and her physical presence will be greatly missed.
Pamela was a beautiful soul on the outside and her internal beauty radiated in and through all that she touched. Her strength, perseverance, brilliance, quick sense of humour and care for her family were ever present until God called her home.
Pamela was a creative soul and enjoyed the peace and beauty of nature, which closely resembled the beauty of Pamela herself. She enjoyed walking and cycling in the ravine near her home–always looking out for robins and cardinals. She was a water baby and never met a body of water that she didn’t enjoy. Her praise and worship to God was illuminated when she sang as part of her church choir.
Pamela was a skilled writer and worked in corporate communications at various organizations. Pamela was also a brilliant student and was pursuing her Master of Education with a focus in Social Justice Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto.
Pamela’s warm, generous and loving spirit will live on and through her family. A funeral will be held for Pamela on Tuesday, December 29, 2020. A link to the online service will be available on the morning of December 29, 2020, with a photo and music tribute starting at 9:30 a.m. The service will begin at 9:45 a.m.
