Pamela M. Heberton

Pam Heberton passed away quietly at home in the loving arms of her husband, daughter, and son on Sunday evening, March 6th, 2022.  This ended her long battle with lung cancer, which she fought with her typical inner strength and determination. Born in New York City in 1958, Pam was the loving only child of Harold and Alice Martin.  Pam grew up in the shadow of the George Washington Bridge on Cabrini Boulevard until she moved to Darien, CT in the early 1970’s.  Her mother’s family were longtime residents of Norwalk and Pam often recounted visiting her grandmother’s small farm there and gathering eggs for the family. Pam attended both Middlesex Middle School and Darien High School and graduated in the bicentennial year of 1976.  During her time at DHS, she was heavily involved with staging plays put on by the school’s Theatre 308 company.  That was an early use of her artistic creativity that was ever-present throughout her life. Pam was exceptionally intelligent and used that to propel herself through a successful academic and legal career.  It started at Sarah Lawrence University, but she transferred to Colgate University for her final two years.  This was a blessing to her future husband Dick Heberton, for that is where they met when they worked as photographers for the school newspaper.  Pam and Dick both went on to Indiana University, where Pam graduated magna cum laude from the School of Law in 1984.  She passed the California State Bar in 1984 and began a career as a litigator, initially in private practice, but ultimately as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Central District of California.  

Pam filled her life with an amazing array of adventures together with her adoring husband.  They were married for forty wonderful years and had two cherished children, Jen and Eric.  Pam and Dick moved back to Darien in 1992 to be closer to her parents.  Pam focused on raising the children and being involved in the community.  She was especially active at St.
