Matushka Pamela Ann Micek, 71 of West Scranton, fell asleep in the Lord on Tuesday, October 8 at Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore. She is survived by her devoted husband of 46 years, Mitered Archpriest Basil Micek.
Born in Passaic, New Jersey, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Jean McGuggart Paison. Very active in the church and community, Pamela was the president of the PTA at Lincoln Jackson School. A devout parishioner of Saints Peter and Paul Russian Orthodox Church, where she was the president of Saints Martha and Mary Sisterhood, a choir member, and also a member of the Bishop's council. Pamela worked as a medical assistant at Nabi Bio Medical for several years, before moving to Northeast Pediatrics and the office of Dr. Vincent Ross, where she worked for 20 years. Being a Matushka, she was always ready to entertain at a moment's notice. Pamela cherished her family, who she held at the center of her life. She loved her husband, children, and grandchildren all very deeply. When she wasn't at the church or spending time with her family, she was likely watching her favorite show, Days of our Lives, of which she never missed an episode. Pamela was a kind and gentle lady, and she made it her goal to never cause hardship to anyone she encountered.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by three sons: Joseph Micek and wife Kelly of Old Forge, Nicholas Micek of Scranton, and Timothy Micek and wife Kathy of Archbald; two grandchildren: Mylei and Natalei Micek; and her step mother, Helen Paison.
She was preceded in death by her brother Joseph David Paison.
