Maria Pamela Copsis

May 28, 2019

CHARLOTTE – Maria Pamela Copsis went to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, May 28, 2019.  Pam, a native of Charlotte, born on November 8, 1960, was living in Charlotte at her passing.  A student at Providence Day School, Pam graduated from Myers Park High School in the class of 1979.

Pam owned and operated Pam-Ella’s Stylon in Charlotte for many years.  There, her creative flair was evident and exercised.  She had a loyal clientele who have missed her talents since she retired.  

A loving and caring person, Pam was a kind and gentle soul, whose lifelong care for animals and people alike was well known.  These sterling traits were most evident during the years that she served as caregiver to her aging mother.  

Pam was predeceased by her parents, Sam and Vickie Copsis.  She is survived by her brother, Chris S. Copsis and his wife, Lisa Stathakis Copsis; her loving nieces, Victoria and Nicole;  her sister-in-law, Debbie Stathakis also mourns her passing. 

Funeral Services will be held at 12:00 PM on Monday, June 3, 2019 at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral with Fr. Steve Dalber and Fr. Jonathan Mettasophia officiating.  The family will receive friends thirty minutes prior to the service.  Interment will follow at Evergreen Cemetery. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 600 East Blvd. Charlotte, NC 28203 or St. Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church, 5108 Kuykendall Rd., Charlotte, NC 28270. 

Her family extends love and thanks to all those who helped Pam throughout her life. May her memory be eternal. 

Arrangements are in the care of Kenneth Poe Funeral & Cremation Service, 1321 Berkeley Ave., Charlotte, NC 28204; (704) 641-7606. Online condolences can be shared at

    She will be dearly MISSED. She cut my family's hair and came to visit us in Phoenix Arizona many times. She took care of me when I came to Charlotte to help out her brother Chris at his restaurant. I still can't believe this. Hopefully God will take care of her. May her memory be eternal forever !

    Chris, my deepest condolences to you and your family. Many of my fondest teenage memories included your family. I loved Pam and Vicki and it makes me happy knowing they’ve got each other, again, watching over you. Pam, rest peacefully now. You are loved and will be missed.

  • John and Deborah Presson

    Chris, Lisa, Victoria and Nichole, we are so sorry to hear of your loss of sister and aunt Pam. It is so hard to lose precious family and friends, and our only comfort is that she is with other of her loved ones in heaven-and most of all-with our Lord. Our comfort is in God's many promises for those who love him-to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. We will keep you in our prayers.

    I loved her and she loved me and my family. I wish I could have done more for her. Rest In Peace precious friend.
    Deepest sympathy, love, and prayers to her devoted brother, Chris and his family, to Thea Haido, Uncle George, and family—especially Chris George, who tried so hard to help her.... to the many relatives, friends, and neighbors —like Walter and Irene—who patiently helped her.
    Our comfort is that she is with God, and her parents ,and that she is in peace.
