Biographical history

Pamela Johnson (nee Richards) was born to Norman and Pearl Richards of Salmon Arm at Hillcrest Poultry Farm November 3, 1920. She began school at Miss Codrington’s School for Young Ladies in Berkley, Gloucestershire England and then attended schools at Larch Hills and Salmon Arm.

Johnson furthered her education and trained at Royal Inland Hospital and Tranquille TB Sanatorium, graduating in 1943 as a Registered Nurse. Her career highlights include nursing at Royal Inland Hospital, crippled Children’s and Infant Hospitals and working for an armament company contracted with the British Admiralty as an Industrial Nurse during the WWII.

Johnson returned to Salmon Arm after the war before moving to Kelowna for work in 1945. She then worked in Dr. Cates’ office in Haney before starting a family with husband Robert Johnson, who she married August 22, 1950. They had three children together: Diane, Vivian and Doug. In 1962 the family relocated to Salmon Arm.

Johnson was an active member of the Anglican Women’s Guild and a founding member of the Church Thrift Shop in Salmon Arm. She enjoyed the outdoors and activities such as fishing, camping, dancing, tennis, curling, and golfing.
