Pamela was born April 1, 1954, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Delbert Boynton and Margaret Jensen. Pamela attended and graduated from South High School, where she was actively engaged in the Pep Club and served as the Yearbook Editor.

Pamela graduated from Utah State University as an Elementary Education Teacher and touched many lives during her 30+ years as a teacher in California and Virginia. Pamela also earned her required 5th Year in education at Brigham Young University and attended the University of Utah.
Pamela was known for her love of children. In fact, young children would often seek her out. One night at a drive-in movie, a young girl knocked on our car door and asked if Pamela could come out to play. Pamela loved music and particularly loved to go to musicals. She could often be heard singing popular Broadway musicals and children’s songs of her own creation around the home. She played the piano and guitar and shared her talents by teaching others how to play. Pamela was also known as a peacemaker and would work hard to help others come to agreements.

Pamela and Blake were married on November 22, 1974, in the Salt Lake City Temple and raised three wonderful children. They lived in Salt Lake City, Utah; Logan, Utah; Aloha, Oregon; San Jose, California; and South Riding, Virginia.

Pamela was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, holding various callings such as Primary Teacher, Stake Young Women’s President, Primary Chorister, and Relief Society President. Throughout her life she took time to emulate our Savior by loving individuals and making sure they knew they were loved and cared for. Pamela and Blake served a senior couple mission for the LDS Church in the Washington DC South Mission in 2019-2020 and worked with the young single adult congregations, where she continued to make a difference and touch hearts.

Pamela is survived by her husband (Blake Christie), children (Ryan Christie, Janalynne Wheeler, and Brett Christie); three wonderful in-laws (Jeff Wheeler, Jennifer Christie, and Jessica Christie); and 9 grandchildren (Krislynne Scholl, Madeline Christie, James Wheeler, Amelia Christie, Kate Wheeler, Zach Christie, Emmaline Wheeler, Lyla Christie, and Tyler Christie).

A funeral service will be held at 1:00 PM EST on August 16, 2021 in Virginia at the Tall Cedars LDS chapel (42530 Tall Cedars Pkwy, Chantilly, VA 20152) and she will be laid to rest in Lake Hills Memorial Park in Sandy, Utah (10055 S. State St.) on August 20, 2021 at 10:30 AM MDT.
Due to the Pandemic, the funeral service will require all attendees to wear masks and follow an every-other bench protocol.

Pam is going to be missed!  We had recently talked about our 50th Reunion and typical of Pam, she was excited to help but reminded me it would be long distance help. Pam has come to all of our Reunions even though she does not live in Utah...Her positive, happy, glad to see you attitude has been a big part of each one.  We WILL miss her there... Pam, may you rest in peace, and your Family and Friends find peace and comfort... Heidi Hilton Post

We are all saddened at the passing of Pam.  She had such a wonderful smile.  Her happy disposition always cheered us up.  She was always happy and willing to help. She will be missed.  We love you Pam!

Even though I did not know her well, I'm saddened each time one of my friends have passed, I know it's the inevitable, but I Love all of you. Knew many of you after South and, well you'll always be the greatest. On South High no matter where you are.

I echo Rudy’s well-expressed sentiments. As members of the class of ‘72, we are all a part of each other’s lives. The loss of any one of us diminishes us all. Rest in peace, Pam.

 I was sad to hear of the passing of Pam. We were in the same stake and went through school together. The only time I met her was on a primary parade float. We were chosen that year (because we had never missed a day of primary) to be the King and Queen on the float for Cannon Stake. I thought she was pretty cool. As our class mates leave us one by one I’m reminded that life is fragile, and our time here is short.  And although we know our time is running out, we are not sure just when the clock will stop. So it’s important to make the best use of the time we have left. We never know when we will be called home to that God who gave us live. RIP Pam.
