Pamela Anne Ratchford
1948 – 2019

We regret to report the death, aged 70, of Pamela Anne Ratchford, who lost a brave battle with cancer on 20th August 2019. Pam joined John Swire & Sons Limited in 1980, as Personal Assistant to the group's Chairman, Sir John Swire, and she continued to be Sir John's right-hand when he subsequently became Honorary and then Life President of the Swire group. Pam was a member of the JS&S staff for almost 40 years, which is a testament to her consummate professionalism in this role, to which she also brought great personal charm and humour.
