With deep regret the Nauset Light Preservation Society announces the death of Pam Nobili of Eastham, Mass. on May 31, 2011.
Nearly 20 years ago, Pam Nobili and her husband, Conrad, were deeply involved in the effort to save Nauset Lighthouse, which was endangered by severe erosion of the nearby coastal bank. Through their actions, along with other concerned citizens of Eastham and Cape Cod, the Nauset Light Preservation Society was formed, and sufficient funds were collected to pay to move the Lighthouse, Keeper's House, and Oil House to a safer location from 1996 to 1998. The Nauset Light Preservation Society has operated and maintained the lighthouse since the move, and Pam continued to play a significant role: for many years Pam operated NLPS' extremely successful gift shop, which provided a large share of the funds collected for the move and for future operations and maintenance; she served as the Society's President for several years and most recently she was the Society's Treasurer. Pam came to be known as "Mrs. Lighthouse" for all her efforts and for her constant presence at the light.
We shall all miss Pam Nobili's charm and good humor and her devotion to the cause of the Nauset Light Preservation Society.
Visiting hours will be at the Nickerson Funeral Home, 77 Eldredge Park Way in Orleans on Wednesday, June 15, 2011, from 3 to 6 p.m. Remembrances will begin at 4:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Nauset Light Preservation Society, P.O. Box 941, Eastham, MA 02642.
