Pamela S Goode

March 9th, 1952 to January 17th, 2024

Pamela Sue Goode (Boges), 71, passed away peacefully in Bonita Springs, Florida on Wednesday, January 17, 2024. She was the devoted wife to Randall Ray Goode for 44 years. Born in Indianapolis to the late Jack and Betty Boges on March 9, 1952, she attended North Central High School followed by the University of Evansville. She then pursued her Master’s in Education at Indiana University, which sparked her love of teaching. She taught at Spring Mill Elementary School, where she met Randy through his sister Karen, a fellow teacher.

Pam and Randy were married on November 24, 1979. Pam was a wonderful mother, wife, and friend to all who knew her. She loved to laugh and her positivity was infectious. The beating heart of her family, she was unfaltering in love and kindness. Faith and family were the two cornerstones of her life. She dedicated many years of her life to her children, providing unwavering support and love through their growing years.

She spent her life traveling around the world, adventuring to six of the world’s continents. She was an avid skier and hiker and loved surrounding herself with the beauty of nature. An arts lover, she was very artistic herself. She first expressed her love of singing in the Counterpoint Choir at North Central High School. She continued her love of music throughout her entire life, including her involvement in The Port Huron Musicale and directing the children’s choirs at both First Methodist Church and First Presbyterian Church in Port Huron, Michigan. She also loved theater and was cast in many local productions. Her favorite role was playing Fräulein Schweiger in the Sound of Music. She took pride in her youthful beauty, and as a lifelong consumer of Mary Kay cosmetics, became a sales representative for the company when her children were older. Pam also found joy in playing cards and completing Sudoku puzzles, caring for the many pets she had throughout her life, and spending time on the water.

In the summer of 2007, her life forever changed when she and Randy were in a catastrophic automobile accident. She suffered major injuries that ultimately led to her dementia diagnosis. Facing tremendous adversity, she persevered - staying strong in her faith, loving those around her, and doing her best to enjoy life to its fullest.

This life well lived and well loved will always be remembered by her husband Randy; children, Whitney (Matt Anderson) Goode, Andrew (Angela Eick) Goode, and Tory (Tim) Goslee; grandchildren, William and Axel Anderson and Holden and Hadley Goslee; brother, Jack (Connie) Boges; and sister, Valerie (Jim) Hornaday; as well as many beloved nieces, nephews and dear friends. She is preceded in death by her parents, Jack and Betty Boges.

Even at the end she found a way to smile, laugh and sing. Pam will always be remembered by her infectious bright light and laugh. She will forever be one of the brightest stars in our lives.

In memory of Pam (and in lieu of flowers), donations can be made to the Dubin Center in Fort Myers or the music department of the First Presbyterian Church in Bonita Springs. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 20 at 11AM at the First Presbyterian Church of Bonita Springs. A celebration of life will be held at a later date in Port Huron.

Arrangements are being handled by Shikany's Bonita Funeral Home.
