Pamela Nadine Fisher
Pamela Nadine Fisher was born Sept. 06, 1953, in Beaumont, Texas to Ruth Mae Roberts (Kelly) and Ernest Roberts. Pamela was the youngest of 7; her 3 older sisters being Jo Beth Napier, Wanda Marie Roberts & Esther Ruth Roberts and her 3 older brothers being Ernest Benjamin Roberts, Jr., Kenneth Eugene Roberts, and Warren Edward Roberts.
As a child in Beaumont, Pam was playful and full of energy. She and Warren (her brother & running buddy) could always be found together laughing and playing in the front yard. Pam was a good child, but she did things as most children do. She was an annoyingly picky eater, it wasn’t unusual to hear her mother shouting from the kitchen, “who picked all the skin off the chicken?” She knew it was Pam, it was always Pam but her mother would ask just in case.
Some of her favorite TV shows back then were Lassie, Leave it to Beaver, The Addams Family, and Julia.
In Chicago, Pam attended Bond Upper Grade Center where she enrolled in a French class and her dream was born. Her plan was to attend college and go to France. Having her goals set, she took up sewing, began watching Julia Child and she modeled herself after Diahann Carroll and thus aimed to cultivate her beauty & intelligence to be glamorous just like her.
She dreamed of setting lavish tables, hosting and attending extravagant affairs, while dressed in the most envious attire. While doing homework or washing dishes after dinner, Pam would practice French by teaching other family members.
After moving to Denver, Pamela attended Manual High School and graduated in 1972.
While working at Children’s Hospital in Denver, Pamela met and married Donald Fisher on August 28, 1976 and gained a stepson, Don Fisher Jr. Born to this union were David Jermaine, Kelli Elizabeth and Guy Preston. Pamela and Donald valued traveling and would make yearly road trips with their children to Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas to visit family. Pamela loved working in her garden and tending to her flowers, and even raised a small plot of sunflowers that her kids eventually picked the seeds from to eat.
Pam worked dutifully for Kaiser Permanente for 25 years, starting as a pharmacy tech and ending as an admissions rep before retiring in 2016.
Pam was a member of Greater Faith Worship Center before falling ill in 2020. In her free time, she was always pursuing new interests; she’d even tried her hand at learning calligraphy like her mother.
She is survived by her sisters Jo Beth Napier & Wanda Roberts, her children David Fisher, Kelli Fisher and Guy Fisher, and her 5 grandchildren of which she was so proud;, David Jermaine Fisher Jr., Daron Raymond Jones, Shae Nicole Fisher, Shakti Simone Fisher, and Isis Meiko Morehead.
In the words of Pam, “Hey girly,” sleep well and be at peace. Because you were, we are and because we are, you will always be.
