Pamela J. (Tweddale) Fairfield, 81, a longtime resident of Brockton, died peacefully at home on Saturday, December 17, 2022 surrounded by her loving family. She was the adoring wife of the late Winston L. Fairfield, Jr. for 53 years. Pamela was the daughter of the late James E. and Ruth G. (Banta) Tweddale. She was born in Peoria, IL and raised in Lowpoint, IL. Pamela was a graduate of Lowpoint-Washburn High School, Class of 1959 and earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Indiana University as part of the Class of 1963. She was also a member of the National Student Nursing Association.
Pamela was a committed and compassionate registered nurse for more than 20 years. She started her career in the operating room at Milton Hospital and moved into the emergency room and intensive care unit at Goddard Memorial Hospital in Stoughton. She then worked at E.N.T. Specialists in Norwood until her retirement.
Pamela is survived by her children, Kelly A. Leonard and her husband John of Duxbury, Kim S. Kelley and her husband Charles of Dorchester and Craig M. Fairfield of Boston, as well as her grandchildren, Matthew, Ryan and Sarah Leonard and Devin, Rylie and Casey Kelley to whom she was lovingly known as “Nannie”. She was the sister of the late James D. Tweddale of Alameda, CA and is also survived by several nieces.
After marrying her college sweetheart and moving to Brockton, her passion and purpose was her family. Spending time at the beach in Newport, Cape Cod or Nantucket, watching college basketball, and any family gatherings, especially those with her grandchildren brought her the most joy.
