Pamela Leigh White Nelson Will Be Missed LAYTON - Pamela Leigh White Nelson of Layton, Utah lost her battle with cervical cancer in the early morning hours of Saturday, January 10, 2009; she was 38. Pam was an incredible mom to five amazing kids and wife to Ben Nelson, the love of her life. Pam was a bright star in a sometimes not-so-friendly world. People were drawn to Pam wherever she went. She was a best friend, great sister, loving daughter and just a joy to know. She was one of those people who made you feel special just because you are you. Her spirit was one of love, hope and absolute determination. Her positive, loving attitude was contagious and she always could make you laugh no matter the circumstances. She touched many and she will be sorely missed. She is survived by her husband Ben Nelson, her children: Austin, Torie, Dallen, and Masen Wake, and Ryker Nelson; her parents Ken and Sherry White, her sisters Barbara Hersh, and Robin Fluckinger, brothers David White and Mike White, her grandmother Geri Smith and Gram Little, many aunts, uncles, cousins and nieces and nephews, and her sidekick, her dog, Reload. She is also survived by a family she dearly loved, Ben's parents Kevin and Teri Sorensen and all of the Nelson and Sorensen families. Pam was a member of the Oak Hills 1st Ward. Funeral services will be held Wed., January 14, 2009 at 11 a.m. at the Oak Forest 1st Ward, 2250 North 2200 East, Layton.

Oh my gosh, when I heard this, my heart broke. I worked with Pam at Smith's and she was a loving and "one of a kind" person.. Always made you laugh and feel good. I lost touch with Pam over the years, but thought of her over the years, along with some of the wonderful people I worked with at Smith's. Ken & Sherry, I pray for your family at this solemn time and ask God to give you the strength you all need to get through this. She was truly a blessing.

Pam was a kind, good person. She was a joy to be around. She was one of the first people to introduce herself and be friendly to me when I first moved to Layton so many years ago.

Robyn, my heart is breaking for you and your family.

May the Lord bless and comfort you during this time...

The Isoms,
Jeff, Linda, & Jacob
