Pamela Arbaugh Carney Obituary

Pamela A. Carney, 75, of Hamilton, Ohio, and long-time resident of Bay Village, Ohio, passed away peacefully with her children by her side on the morning of August 22, 2023. She was born on December 31, 1947 in Steubenville, OH to Arthur and Bettie Arbaugh (nee Harris). 

Pam is survived by her children Erin Grindstaff (Chad), Megan Pacione (Nick) and Patrick Carney (Marli); brother Jeff Arbaugh; brother-in-law Robert Carney (Janellen), and sister-in-law Karen D’Imperio (Jim); grandchildren Reed, Meredith, Anna and Nicholas Grindstaff; nieces and nephews Nicole McCormack (Trav), Kyle Arbaugh (Ruth), Halle Arbaugh, Hannah Arbaugh, Lynn Guerrieri and Michael Carney (Ingrid). Pam was also a great aunt to Tessa, Cannon, Ben, Edie, and Grayson. 

Pam was preceded in death by George, her loving husband of 43 years, her parents, and her beloved Aunt Mildred. 

Pam grew up in Steubenville, OH, attending Wintersville High School and Bowling Green State University where she and George met and fell in love. Pam and George raised their children in Bay Village, where she was an avid fan of all the major Cleveland sports teams, enjoying many games with friends and family. She loved animals especially their family dogs and her many grand-doggies. Along with her career work as an administrative assistant, Pam was involved in several charitable organizations throughout the Cleveland area. She was able to use her warm personality and organizational skills to raise thousands of dollars on behalf of worthy causes. Pam was also very involved with the Bay Soccer Club throughout the years, helping to ensure that hundreds of young players from Bay were able to participate in a quality soccer club. She served on the Bay Challenge Cup committee and was instrumental in helping Bay Village host a top-notch tournament for players and families from multiple states and Canada. Pam was also integral to the original creation of the Bay High School girls’ varsity soccer team. She worked tirelessly to ensure that girls in Bay Village were able to have the same varsity level sports experience as other larger school districts.
