Pamela Strode was the mother (adoptive mother in all timelines that consider Halloween 2 canon) of Laurie Strode and the wife of Morgan Strode.

Halloween 2 continuity

At some point when Laurie was young, Pamela possibly revealed to her that she was not her real mother. It does seem that Laurie forgot about this information as she became older and only re-remembered it in a shock-induced dream following the events of the October 31st, 1978.


On October 31, 1978, Pamela and Morgan went to a Halloween party and left late into the night. It is unknown at what time they got home as the hospital kept trying to call them as their daughter had been hospitalized there.[1]

Halloween 2 timelines

Pamela and her husband were forced to tell Laurie of her true lineage and this caused a strain between them and their daughter. On Laurie's birthday, Morgan had bought her a new car but she did not accept their gift and only wanted for them to leave her alone. Pamela tried to tell her husband to give their daughter more time as Laurie was still angry over the lies.[2]

When Laurie's graduation came, the relationship was still strained as they attended her graduation but she still did not want them there.[3]

It is currently unknown what had happened to Pamela and her husband as neither of them have made an appearance or mention after the graduation incident. She and her husband lived in the same house for a long time and they never moved from it.
