She attended Henager’s Business College in Ogden, Utah. She married Gilbert Bockmeyer on March 17, 1962, in Lewiston, Utah. From this union they had three children, Tracie, Tyler, and Krista. Gilbert and Pam were later divorced, but still remain as friends. Pam married Farrell LaVoy Miles on July 14, 1989 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Joining their families together has been one of the greatest blessings. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She dedicated her life to serving others.
