Pamela Elizabeth (Svatos) Schwind Obituary


Pamela Elizabeth (Svatos) Schwind, 60, of South Bend, Indiana passed away at 7:14 AM Thursday, March 7, 2024, in her home. Pamela was born on May 10, 1963, in South Bend, Indiana to Carl Svatos, Sr. and Elizabeth (Bukowski) Svatos, and was a lifelong resident. On July 26, 1986, in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart she married Bruce D. Schwind, who survives. Pamela is also survived by her daughter Kaley (Gabriel) King of New York, New York; three grandchildren, Liam Riegsecker, Kinsley Schwind and James King; two sisters, Carolyn (Rich) Karczewski of Grove City, Ohio and Susan (William) Ivy of Mishawaka, Indiana; and her brother Anthony (Tara) Svatos of Union, Michigan. Pamela was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Carl and her son Jordan. A Celebration of Life is planned for first weekend of June; please check back here for details, TBD. Pamela was a 1981 graduate of Clay High School and attended Ball State University. Pam (or Pammie to her family and friends) was an avid royal family enthusiast and for those who knew her you might agree the way she carried herself was much like her hero Princess Diana—elegant and graceful. She was feminine and beautiful and always smelled good and surrounded herself with beauty: flowers, paintings she created, and artwork created for her by her grandchildren and close friends’ kids. She was sassy, loving, and fun and her laughter lit up any space. Pamela loved her family, her grandchildren, and her dog, Buster. The family would like to thank the wonderful folks from Traditions Hospice for providing 24/7 care, love and personal support. Memorial contributions can be directed to River Bend Cancer Services or Traditions Health Hospice. Kaniewski Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
