Pamela Baker Foote was born on August 27, 1942, in Salt Lake City, Utah to Kenneth John and Inez Allen Baker. Pam was a loving sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and dear friend to so many. She passed away peacefully among family on June 13, 2022.
Pam worked for 40 years in the medical field; first as a Medical Secretary at the Division of Artificial Organs and then as an Executive Assistant in Neurosurgery and Pediatric Neurosurgery. She found genuine joy in the little things like puzzles, Christmastime, reading, and being known as ‘the Grandma with treats’. She was fascinated by geology and astronomy and loved collecting rocks and observing the wonders of the night sky. As she was also a movie buff, it is not surprising that her all-time favorite movie series was Star Wars, which she had memorized from beginning to end.
Pam always had a love of music and shared her talent as an accomplished pianist and organist for decades. Pam had complete love, trust, and faith in Jesus Christ and was dedicated to serving Him, which included service as a full-time missionary and a temple worker in both the Jordan River and Oquirrh Mountain temple.
Pam had a way of genuinely and generously giving her love to everyone with whom she came in contact; which meant that there were no strangers in her life, only friends. Her family could count on a birthday song over the phone and a card in the mail for every important occasion because she truly enjoyed celebrating each and every one of them. Her greatest joy came from being a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother (GeGe).
She is survived by her children Michelle Miller, Tamera Brokaw (Gordon), Christopher Walls (Beth), and Kirk Foote (Penny); her sisters Patricia Farr, Shari Baker, and Marci Zufelt (Jack); twelve grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.

Life Story Info
Seeing Pam's obituary on KSL was a shock. I'm sorry I was not able to attend her viewing or funeral to express my sympathy in person to your family.
Pam was my visiting teacher when I lived in Draper, and she has stayed in touch with me even after I moved out of the ward in 2007. Pam is a sweetheart and an example of turning lives lemons into lemonade. I am a better person for being the recipient of her love, kindness and example.
I hope and pray that your family will be strengthened and comforted during this challenging time. All my love, Jenny Jacobson
