Angela Nichole Pasteur (Roberson)
of Bartlett, TN celebrated her "birthday" into eternal peace on April 17, 2021 after a courageous battle with metastatic breast cancer.
Nichole was born on March 6, 1972 in Asheville, NC. She attended Habersham Central High School and graduated from North Georgia Technical School. After moving to Columbus, GA for the first official job of her photography career, she met her future best friend and husband, E.J. Pasteur, and married him on July 12, 1997.
From Columbus, GA to East Lansing, MI to Fredericksburg, VA to Flint, MI to Atlanta, GA, then to Memphis, TN she was able to contribute her talents and passion through photography. In all the communities she lived, she was always focused on helping others and giving back. Nichole was an elder in her church and developed an after-school program for under-privileged youth. She volunteered as a leader of her son's youth and high school wrestling programs and was a troop leader for Boy Scouts of America. She had a passion for animals and always had at least one puppy from rescue whom she adored. Most recently, as she endured rigorous treatment, she nonetheless volunteered at the Memphis Museum of Science & History.
Nichole was an amazing wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and neighbor. She was known for her ability to make everyone feel special. Loved ones describe her as one of the kindest souls on earth. She had the vision to see things better and the determination to make it happen. Even while battling the difficult side-effects of treatment, she was always positive and never complained. She was a warrior as she faced down cancer with incredible strength and determination. Her life was driven by her faith and unshakable trust in God.
Nichole is survived by her devoted husband of 23 years, E. J. Pasteur, their son Tre' (19), her parents, Marguerite & Tony Roberson of Clayton, GA, her sister, Melisa (Mike) Cook, their children, Palmer & Phoebe, her sister, Debra (Stan) Clark, and their children Ava, Spencer, Oliver & Grayson, Aunt Linda Roberson, Uncle Scott Roberson, in-laws Micki & Ernie Pasteur, Tracy Pasteur, Jacob Zimmerman, and Nicole & Andre Dandridge and Indira Dandridge.
