West, Pamela Groscost  
Pamela Groscost West NORFOLK, VA: Pamela Kay Groscost West, 56, clicked the heels of her red ruby slippers three times and went home to Heaven on December 13, 2014. The last 20 months of Pam's life showed us all what it means to display great bravery, earning a well-deserved badge of courage in the face of her ongoing battle with cancer. Pam is survived by a large and loving family who are going to miss the beautiful deep dimples that formed when she smiled, and the way that tears of laughter so easily flowed while in her company. Her four children are Michael Burns of Pooler, GA, and Ryan Finnegan, Courtney Finnegan and Bryce West, all of Norfolk, VA.; she cherished the company of her three grandchildren, Mikey, Hunter and Riley; Pam is also survived by her mom and dad, John and Dorothy Kasper of Mansfield, OH; as well as two brothers and three sisters, David Groscost and Summer Hunsinger of Mansfield, OH, Sean Kasper of San Antonio, TX, as well as Kristine Kasper and Kimberly Bork of Phoenix, AZ. Her mother Dorothy lovingly and devotedly cared for her in her last few weeks of life. She was preceded in death by her father, Calvin Groscost. While we take comfort in Pam's place now amongst the angels, flying overhead is not where we will find her. "It's a little too much like parasailing," she said, "and that's just not for me. I want to stay on the ground." So to our angel with two feet planted firmly in the warm beach sand, we love you, we miss you and we'll 'see ya' later. A celebration of Pam's life will be held at Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home, Tidewater Drive Chapel, in Norfolk on Wednesday, December 17th at 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you perform a random act of holiday kindness for a stranger in Pam's honor. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.hollomon-brown.com
