Our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend passed away peacefully at her home on February 1, 2022, in Garden City, Idaho with her loved ones by her side.
Pamela will forever be remembered by those that knew her best for her kind heart, her gift of giving, and the direction and advice she gave so well in her quiet subtle ways. Her journey is complete. She will be missed by all.
Pamela (Pam) was born to Russell and Pearl Davies on December 4th, 1938, in Salt Lake City, Utah joining brothers Gordon, Norm and sister Elaine. Being the youngest growing up with three older siblings, Pam learned at an early age that they would take care of her, be her protectors and become her lifelong support. Pam instilled the importance of family into her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to always take care of each other and one another going forward.
Pam and Don Ivory were married in 1955 and into this union had three children, Lori, Danna, and Curt. The family moved to Boise, Idaho in 1973 for Don’s work. Pam worked for The Bazaar Department store in Boise for many years as a buyer, meeting many lifelong friends that have remained close to her heart throughout the years. Don and Pam went separate ways but always remained close friends.
Pam married Robert (Bob) Williams in January 1990. Pam and Bob loved life together and each other. They loved playing cards with friends and family and reminiscing about the crazy times had by all. They spent endless hours traveling the world with Bob’s work at Young Electric Sign Co. Retirement brought them both the things they so enjoyed together. Spending time in Port Townsend W.A, overlooking the bay in their condominium was a favorite for them. They loved the yearly travels to Cabo San Lucas with friends and family, where the stories will remain with us all forever.
Pam loved their home on the pond in Garden City, ID. She found solace after Bob’s passing in 2019 to plant the beautiful flowers and vegetable garden that they always spent time doing together.
After being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in early 2020, Pam continued her daily life, coffee with friends, book club, evenings on the patio, shopping with granddaughter Katie. She never once complained about what she was going through, whether it was Chemotherapy treatments, radiation, or all the pokes and prods. She endured more than most would and always had a good attitude. She lived the last couple of years spending time with those that meant most to her enjoying every second with them. We will all forever hold her commitment to family and friends, her dedication, her devotion, and mostly her love with us forever.
There are no words to express the gratitude the family has to granddaughter Katie for the help she provided to Pam these last couple of years. Our heartfelt thanks go out to Pam’s daughter Danna as well for caring for her and enabling her to remain at home during this “tough” last month.
Pam is survived by her daughter, Danna Ivory, son, Curt (Cheri) Ivory, her brother Norm (Carlene) Davies, her sister Elaine (Harry) Wilson, her stepchildren, Christy (Blake) Williams, Eric (Patsi) Williams, grandchildren, Alanna (Bret) Kimmel, Katie Ivory and Zachary Ivory, her step grandchildren, Jamie Williams, Mallory (Chris Poulson) Mower, Christian Mower, Abigail (Seth) Mower Rampton, Alex Mower, Landon (Nikki) Greenhalgh, Mitchell (Cristan) Greenhalgh as well as nine great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, daughter, Lori, husband, Bob, brother, Gordon, stepdaughter, Sheri Mower and step granddaughter, Kimberly Williams.
In honor of Pam’s life an open house gathering will be held between 2:00pm-5:00pm, Saturday, March 19, 2022, at Water’s Edge Event Center, 287 E. Shore Dr., Eagle, Idaho.
Please stop in and bring any memories you would like to share. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the Idaho Humane Society or St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

Pam was my Aunt. She was kind and always had such a welcoming smile. I was very young when my family lived in Idaho near Uncle Don and Aunt Pam but their house was always an adventure and Aunt Pam never had a cross word. I know how much she meant to Danna and her grandkids. My condolences go out to to her whole family and I send my love.
