Pamela Rose Heaphy



June 17, 2022

Pamela Rose Connolly Heaphy went home to God on Friday, June 17, 2022 at the Abraham House of Rome. Pam was born to Mae and Thomas Connolly in West Babylon, NY on November 13,1953. She and her family moved to Wappinger Falls and it was there she attended school. In May of 1979, she married James Heaphy in Poughkeepsie NY. After the death of her husband, she resided in Hollywood FL before moving to Norwich NY.

The hospitality industry was a big draw to Pam and she held hotel management positions for years at various locations. Music was a big interest to her and that meant listening, singing solo or accompanying others. Family gatherings were looked forward to by her and others-her to sing and others to enjoy the music participation. Another of Pam’s strengths was her culinary skills. She learned from her mother and she was happy to repeat what she had learned as well as to add creativity to the recipes.

Pam is survived by her son James and her grandchildren Gavin and Alynn; also by her brothers Thomas (Cathleen) Connolly and Douglas (Rita) Connolly; her brother-in-law Michael (Pat) Heaphy. She will be missed by her many nieces and nephews as well as her great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins and friends. Pam was predeceased by her parents, her husband James, her brother Dennis and her sister-in-law Donna.

Internment will be set sometime in the future.

The family would like to thank the staff of Abraham House for making Pam’s final days comfortable. Donations in her memory can be made to Abraham House of Rome, 417 N Washington St, Rome,NY 13440.
