Pamela Schaffner

March 08, 1940 ~ March 01, 2020

Pamela Ann Schaffner, a longtime Greenwich native, passed away peacefully on March 2nd, 2020 surrounded by her loving family.  Born March 8th, 1940 to Robert and Rose Demar of Greenwich, she graduated St. Mary High School as a member of their first graduating class.  In 1958 after meeting on a blind date, she married Robert “Bobby” Schaffner.  Pam & Bobby had four children that they joyfully raised in the home her father built for her in Cos Cob.  Pam was quiet, selfless, and fiercely resilient.  Her family was everything to her and she hosted many laughter filled days with both friends and family at her home.  One of her absolute favorite things to do was to plan the annual family vacation to Walt Disney World often taking many friends along for these memorable trips.

 

While raising her four children, Pam returned to work as a driver for ARC of Greenwich.  She later became the first executive director of TAG (the Transportation Association of Greenwich). Having a daughter with disabilities, she recognized the need for specialized transportation in town.  Pam dedicated many years to TAG before retirement.  After 77 years residing in Greenwich, CT she relocated with two of her daughters to Micco, FL in 2018.

 

Pam was predeceased by her husband of 54 years, Bobby Schaffner.  She is survived by her four children: Kelly, Suzanne Johnson (Eric), Christopher, Robin Prokopczyk (Matt), and five grandchildren: Kaitlin Barber (Matt), Hayden Johnson, Alex, Parker, and Aaron Prokopczyk.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to: TAG, 13 Riverside Ave., Riverside, CT 06878,  www.ridetag.org.

    • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

    • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
