Pamela Scofic of Onondaga (formerly of Mason and Eaton Rapids) passed away on January 14, 2021 after a hard-fought battle with COVID.
Pam has been reunited with her son, Michael Scofic, who passed away in 2014. She is survived by her daughters Heidi Brininstool (Jesse) and Diane Nelson (Phillip) and her honorary daughter Deena Bunce. Pam was the loving grandmother (G-Ma) of Beth (Kevin), Steven, Justin, Emily (Dustin), Kaylee, Kyle and Jonah, and was the great-grandmother to Preston, Dustin, Lakyn and Bentley. She was the sister of Gay (Jack) and Dave (Cathy), and was the dear friend of Dorene, Pat and many, many, many others.
Pam was a gift to the world and spent her life doing good works. She cared for and treated thousands of children as a pediatric nurse in the Lasing area for nearly 50 years, and eventually retired as an immunizations nurse with the Ingham County Health Department. After retiring, Pam became an active and lively volunteer at City Rescue Mission in Lansing, where she cared for homeless guests by serving meals, cleaning, distributing supplies, and performing any other tasks that were asked of her.
She was an ardent MSU football and basketball fan, and lost her voice more than once yelling at or cheering for her teams. She was also an avid gardener and dedicated untold hours to her flower beds and garden. She loved knitting, playing cards, reading smutty books, eating at Cracker Barrel, socializing with friends and family, and making new friends.
Pam loved her family and friends fiercely and unconditionally. She was kind, generous, funny and thoughtful. Pam loved talking with everyone, even complete strangers! She had a great sense of humor and could take a joke just as good as she gave them. She loved being more-than-a-little naughty, had a mile-wide stubborn streak, and was beyond feisty. Pam was strong beyond measure, raising three kids completely on her own, and throughout her life, overcame obstacles that would have destroyed most others. She was also a safe space for anyone to turn to, and was always willing to provide support, guidance and a shoulder to lean on for anyone going through tough times. Her heart had no limits. Her love had no boundaries. Her loyalty was unbreakable. And her sass was untamable.
Pam’s passing has left a hole in the hearts of all that knew her. Her light and her love will be forever missed.
