Pam was born October 8, 1962, in Fruita, Colorado, to Roe and Sandra Willis. Pam was the much loved sister of Ted Willis (Longmont, Colorado) and Mindy Willis Schroyer (Anchorage, Alaska) and the loving mother of Matthew Hartman (Glenwood Springs, Colorado) and wife of Tom Regan (New Castle, Colorado).

She was the aunt of Brian Schroyer and Jamie Schroyer (Anchorage, Alaska) and dear friend to hundreds throughout the valley.
