Pamela Bradford

WATERTOWN, Mass. — Pamela Jean Vitale Bradford ended her 14-month battle with brain cancer, on Monday. She was 58.

She was born in Cambridge, Mass., May 25, 1955, to James and Sarah Vitale, the youngest of eight children. She was raised in Reading, Mass., and graduated in 1973. She attended the University of Massachusetts and was involved in a social justice program, providing diversity education to children through a University of Massachusetts grant. She had the position of Assistant Dean of Women at UMass, but later furthered her education in commercial banking. Pamela became a senior vice president at the Bank of America and held that position until her illness debilitated her.

She is survived by her husband of 23 years, Paul Bradford of Watertown; and her daughter Angelique Bradford, also of Watertown and a senior at Haverford College.

Pam spent her time with her family in reaching out to the needs of others. They spent their Thanksgivings and Christmases providing meals at a homeless shelter. She and her family took part in a mission trip to Honduras and continued reaching out to underprivileged people all her life. Her work through her parish also provided much comfort for those in need. She and her family were able to travel extensively and spend much quality time together. Pam is also survived by six siblings, Virginia Possidento of Wolcott, Conn., Fanny Arena of Belmont, Mass., Ann Jordan of Weymouth, Mass., James Vitale of Woburn, Mass., Julie Vitale Lancaster of Washington, and David Vitale of Winchester, Mass. She is the aunt and great-aunt to many nieces and nephews, and the friend to countless individuals who were part of her full life.

She is predeceased by her parents, Sarah and James Vitale, and brother, Frank Vitale.

Her funeral will take place at Sacred Heart Parish, Lexington, Mass., and she will be interred at Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Mass.
