She was born to Robert Galbraith and Ruth Rodriguez on January 9, 1956 in Hillsboro, OR. Pam grew up in Boise, ID attending Capital High School.

The family moved back to Boise, ID where daughter Tyra was born. Pam stayed home to take care of her children.
In the fall of 1986, the family moved to St. Maries, ID. Once Pam’s children were graduated, she went to work for the Coeur d’ Alene Tribal Casino in housekeeping. After 13 years of service, she ended her career as the Manager of housekeeping.
Pam was very artistic and enjoyed crocheting, knitting, and painting. She loved entertaining her family on holidays, specifically Thanksgiving, and went all out with food and drinks.
