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.

I think of what Elder/President Hugh B. Brown said, "The candle has gone out because the dawn has come." I watched the funeral online and really miss my dear friend Pam.
With the deepest sympathy to the entire family. We had a great love for Pam and all of the wonderful experiences we shared with the family while we were raising our families in SLC. Pam, please know that we believe you are in God's good hands.

She was such an amazing person has helped me throughout my life when I needed a place to stay, a friend, a listening ear, she introduced me to dark patties See's candies, loved seeing her goose and all the outfits! I shared so many smiles and laughter with this woman, she was truly amazing!

Our love to the family
To Pam’s family,
I first met Pam in our home in Ft Wayne IN while she had just come from France she stayed in our home till her and companion could get an apartment. We got to know each other very well I was out in the kitchen when she said to me “I have been divorced three times” I said “Jim is my fourth husband keep going” we looked at each other laughed and hugged” that day and for many to come it was a hoot. Every Tuesday her Pday my mom and I would take her out for steak lunch. After we would take mother back to the house and Pam & I would go to Grabil a small town east of Ft WYN. We would shop, get home made fudge. It is an Amish community it was fun seeing them with their horse and buggies. For her one year being out on her mission she asked me to have a get together with some of the sister from church. What we were going to do was up to me. I wanted to be different than what any thing she would have thought might happened. A pajama party sent out little invites, please bring a dish to pass for lunch and wear your pjs there was popcorn, candy and pop (soda). We had so much fun. Pam loved Christmas her big tree and all the tiny ornaments with their little vignettes I was able to see it one year. There are so many more good times. May you all be comforted knowing this isn’t the end it another beginning. Love to you all
Pam was one of my best friends. I felt so badly when she moved from being my next-door neighbor several years ago. She truly was a caring and wonderful person. I pray that her family will be comforted knowing that she is out of her suffering and pain.
michelle and family—
my heart is with you in this time of grief and transition.
Went to school with Pam and I have kept in touch ever since. Very saddened by her death. My sincere condolences to the the family.
