Palma Louise “Pam” Schneider


Palma Louise (Pam) Brown Schneider, 80, of Reynoldsburg, Ohio passed away peacefully on July 25, 2020, with family by her side.  Palma was born on October 3, 1939 in Dayton, Ohio to Joseph and Marcene (Forkner) Brown.  She was a graduate of Tecumseh High School.

Pam became a military wife in 1958 and was able to travel to many places in the world.  She had two children, Craig and Kelley, and she was a wonderful, devoted mother to the end. Settling in central Ohio she later met and married Dick Schneider. They loved boating, fishing and traveling together.  She is retired from the State of Ohio BMV. Pam enjoyed gardening, puttering around the house, sewing, hanging out with her favorite neighbor Linda, visits with her wonderful sister Maryjo, her yearly garage sale, lunches with her girlfriends, a good thrift store and hosting the annual Christmas luncheon for the Ya Ya’s.  She always kept in touch with her many friends from New Carlisle and continued friendships with them throughout her life.  Pam was a friend to everyone she met and was always willing to lend an ear.

Pam is survived by her son Craig (Sarah) Sargent and daughter Kelley (Christy) Sargent; granddaughters Nicole, Natalie and Jessica Sargent; sister Mary Jo (David) Hayes; brother Bill (Debbie) Brown; mother-in-law Agrafjana Farringer; and former spouse and friend Robert Sargent.   She has many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Dick.

Due to the current Covid 19 health situation, a celebration of her life will be held at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to either the Peace River Wildlife Center in Punta Gorda, FL (prwildlife.org) or the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.  Please visit www.OhioCremation.org to leave her family an online condolence.

    Craig and Kelley,

    We are saddened to hear of your loss. We know what a wonderful person your mother was. Whether is was as a neighbor/friend for Joanna and Annie or a co-worker such as Tom, Pam’s warm heart shown through every encounter. We feel a great loss so we can only imagine how difficult this time is for you. Please remember that your mom touched a lot of people in her life and those touches go on in others and will for generations to come. Thank you for sharing her with us.

  • Susie and Gordon says:

    Deepest sympathy to the family. Pam was a very sweet, kind, gentle and thoughtful lady. I cherish all the handmade gifts she made for me (earrings, potholders, scarves and her special Christmas chex mix). Gordon loved to visit her and have long chats that took them down memory lane. It has been a pleasure knowing her for the past 13 years and she will be forever missed.

  • Bill and Glenda says:

    Rest in peace Pam. You touch so many peoples lives with your smile and laughter. You will be missed.

  • Deb says:

    Such a sweet, kind and thoughtful person and wonderful neighbor. We will miss you in our community.

  • Dave and Pam says:

    Heaven is an even better place now that Pam is there. Such a nice lady. She was the first person we met when we moved into Farmington Meadows. She had a great way of making you feel welcome. She will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Pam.

  • Annette Hudson says:

    Pam was a ray of sunshine and added the warmth of friendship to every resident she met at Farmington Meadows. I will miss the casual conversations we had on her porch and mine, mostly on the topic of what we were making on our sewing machines. Pam cared about everyone. May God continue to keep you as you learn to live without her.

  • K D Thompson says:

    Pam was a beautiful woman. Her kindness and love knew no bounds. Rest in Peace Pam.
    Deepest sympathies to Kelley and Craig and their families.

  • Linda Bond says:

    Dear Kelley and Craig, I loved your Mother. She was a beautiful lady and very special friend. I would call her and say “I need my Pam fix!” and we would get together. She will be greatly missed by many friends and I cherish our friendship over the years. Rest In Peace, dear Pam. My deepest condolences to you for your loss. She loved you both so much.

  • Jan Alban says:

    I’m thinking of the family with caring thoughts and deepest sympathy. Pam will be missed by so many of us living here in Farmington Meadows. We all loved her so much.

  • Diana Stout says:

    Pam was such a good neighbor and friend to everyone. I will miss her sweet laugh. She was so dedicated and did so much for our community. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

  • Dotti Vance says:

    To the family of Pam Schneider we send our most sincere condolences for the passing of Pam. Although it is only a temporary separation because you will see her again, we know you will miss her presence here until then. We have certainly missed worshipping with her at church for sometime now, but she has vividly remained in our hearts and prayers.

    What a lovely and loving and caring person we were privileged to share our faith and friendship with! I particularly admired her artistic talent with her sewing and jewelry-making creativity. I personally treasure two necklaces she made and gave to me. And her pot holders grace my kitchen and those of friends I patronized Pam for at the many craft events where she was a sought-after vendor.

    Although our conversations eventually became far too few, I remember how happy-making and helpful she told me her family had been to her and how much she loved you all.

    Blessings to each of you. May God’s peace soon replace your grief.

    In Christ’s Love and with ours,
    Dotti and Jack Vance
