Pamela S Goode

March 9th, 1952 to January 17th, 2024

Pamela Sue (Boges) Goode, 71, passed away peacefully in Bonita Springs, Florida on Wednesday, January 17, 2024.

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 Randall Ray Goode through his sister Karen, a fellow teacher.

Pam and Randy were married on November 24, 1979. She was a wonderful wife, mother, and friend to all who knew her. She loved to laugh and her positivity was infectious. The beating heart of her family, Pam 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.

Pam 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 of 44 years, Randy; children, Whitney (Matt Anderson) Goode, Andrew (Angela Eick) Goode, and Tory (Tim) Goslee; step-daughter, Nicole Goode; grandchildren, William, Axel and Anneliese Anderson, Holden and Hadley Goslee; brother, Jack (Connie) Boges; sister, Valerie (Jim) Hornaday; as well as many beloved nieces, nephews and dear friends.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 6, 2024 in First Presbyterian Church of Port Huron with visitation beginning at 10:30 a.m. Dr. Roxie Davis will officiate.

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.
