Pamela Bell Scarola 1944 - 2019    

Pamela Ann Scarola, 74, of Gahanna, Ohio, passed away May 8, 2019.   She was born November 9, 1944, in Wadsworth, Ohio, to the late Edwin and Marion (Everhard) Bell. 

Pam graduated from Miami University of Oxford, Ohio, where she received a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and met her husband, Joseph Scarola.   After a short time teaching, she focused her energy on being a mother and fulfilling her role as a Navy officer's wife.   

Although Pam later returned to the school arena by working for the YWCA's Kidscape after school program at High Point Elementary, her family was always at the center of her world.  She loved family vacations to the beach and trips to Las Vegas with Joe. 

She leaves behind her husband of 53 years, Joe Scarola;  daughters Jennifer (John) Bradshaw and Stefanie (Tony) Lucas;  grandchildren Melanie and Matthew Shump;  sister Nancy (Charlie) Boos;  and numerous family and friends. 

A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held from 2-5 pm Sunday, May 26, 2019 at Stefanie and Tony's home, 1262 Venetian Ct., Gahanna, Ohio. 

In lieu of flowers, her family suggests donations to Nationwide Children's Hospital or the Stefanie Spielman Foundation in her memory.
