Our most beloved Pamela Andersen Jensen returned to heaven suddenly on February 20, 2022. Pam was born on July 8, 1943 to Van and Madge Andersen in Monroe, Utah. In 1966, she married her childhood sweetheart Scott Jensen who passed in 2007.
Pam graduated from Richfield High School from the infamous class of 1961. She continued her studies at Utah State University, graduating in 1964 with a degree in Physical Education, with an emphasis on Dance. At Utah State, she was a member of Delta Delta Delta.
Upon graduation she gained employment with Granite School District and her first job was at Skyline High School. Her vision was to create a championship drill team and she was the originator of the international prize winning dance drill team the LaNichees.
She went forward after reaching her goal and earned two Masters Degrees, one from Brigham Young University in Library Media Science and another in School Counseling from the University of Utah.
In 2011 Pam retired after 40 plus years in education. In her free time, she enjoyed traveling the world, spending time with friends and family and especially quality time with her grandchildren: Kylie, Austin, Jalyn, Shia, Micah and Luca whom she proudly doted over and spoiled every chance she got.
Pam or “Tutu” as she was affectionately known, unconditionally, unselfishly loved her children and supported them through the many highs and difficulties of their lives. To say that her family and friends will miss her greatly is an understatement. It was often said that Pam was unselfish to a fault, often neglecting the needs of herself for the needs of her close family and friends.
She is survived by her loving family: son, Brady Jensen and Angie Hadley - grandchildren Kylie, Austin, Jalyn and Jaxon; daughter Jade and Brian Dunseth - grandchildren Shia, Micah and Luca; sister, Vannene Partington, and nieces Lisa and Tiffany.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Scott; parents; daughter, Juel July Jensen Sears; and sister, Juel Ann Andersen.
