Pamela Hassell Cayton, 78, of Beaufort, passed away on Sunday, August 2, 2020 at Carteret Health Care in Morehead City.
Pamela loved being a member of the Ann Street United Methodist Church; and participating in activities there, especially the Wesleyan Circle. She loved her husband Bruce, and was right by his side during his time serving in the US Coast Guard. No matter where they were stationed, she created a home that was full of laughter and made sure their children had memorable experiences. Laughing often and not taking yourself seriously was kind of her motto. After returning to Beaufort that she loved so much, she worked for 35 years as the Assistant Clerk in the Clerk of Courts office. She enjoyed gardening, flowers, bridge club and no matter what activity she was doing, she was always dressed to the nines. Until the very end, manicures, pedicures, styled hair, and red lipstick were essential to her. But more than anything, her greatest love and joy was her family. She loved being a mom and a grandmom, also known as Bubba, and celebrating her family’s accomplishments. She was a wonderful woman with a heart of gold.
