Dr. Pamela M. Foley

WILLSBORO — Dr. Pamela M. Foley died Nov. 8, 2013, peacefully at her home after a long illness. Born Oct. 7, 1948, in Plattsburgh, she was the daughter of the late Richard and Evelyn Foley.

Dr. Foley graduated from Willsboro High School in 1966 and from University of Rochester in 1970. At Rochester, Dr. Foley excelled academically and was recognized especially for her achievements as a student of biology and other natural sciences. She went on to medical school at Perelman School of Medicine at University of Pennsylvania, and trained as a resident in Internal Medicine at Boston University Medical Center, and as a resident in Emergency Medicine at San Francisco General Hospital. Dr. Foley was board certified in both internal medicine and emergency medicine. It was in emergency medicine particularly that Dr. Foley made great contributions, not only as a practitioner, but also as a national leader in the field. Dr. Foley served on the Hope Ship as a part of its medical team. She served as Medical Director for the Corte Madera Fire Department's Paramedic Program, and donated her time at Marin Abused Women Services (MAWS).

Dr. Foley will be remembered first and foremost as a highly skilled, compassionate, and dedicated doctor. She was also a hugely funny standup comic having performed at venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. She was a lover of San Francisco Bay and Lake Champlain, a sailor, and a devoted friend to many people from the east coast to the west.

Dr. Foley is survived by her sister, Carrie; her brothers, Dale (Gwen), Jeff (Lisa), Tim (Janice), and Rick (Nellie); her uncle, Francis Foley (Babe); several nieces and nephews; and will be deeply missed by the many friends and colleagues who are very grateful to have had the honor of knowing her.

A memorial service will be held in the summer of 2014.
