Pam valued family above all else and was a loving mother, grandmother, and sister. She was a devoted friend to many and had a passion for reading, literature, and learning. Pam was a Scrabble enthusiast, dubbed “Sista Scrabble Queen” by her family and friends, known for vexing her opponents with uncommon words and her skill for capitalizing on triple word scores.
Pam was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Beverly Scott Sanders. Her passing was followed shortly after by that of her sister, Sharyn Scott Pierce. She is survived by her children, Erica and her husband, James, Derek and his wife, Cecilia, and Justin Shelton; grandchildren, Isabelle, Gaven, Sayge, Xander, and Evelyn; sisters, Caryn and her husband, Arnold, Connie, Patricia and her husband, Richard, Dawn, and Donna; and a brother, Leroy and his wife, Lorie; as well as several nieces and nephews. May her memory be eternal!
