Pamela Jarvie


Pamela Jarvie, life-long resident of Washam, passed away peacefully at her brother, Alonzo Jarvie’s home Dec. 24, 2015.

She was born on April 12, 1921 at home on the family ranch near Linwood, Utah.

She was the second of six children born to Thomas B. and Alice Finch Jarvie.

Jarvie attended schools in Washam and Manila, Utah.

She graduated from the Manila High School in 1940 and attended the University of Utah for two years.

She lived in the two-story wooden framed home that she was born in until it burned to the ground in 2006.

She and her sister, Ruth, lived in an assisted living apartment in Green River until they moved back to the ranch in 2008.

Jarvie was a sweet and very private lady, an avid sports fan, baseball in particular, and she loved taking pictures.

She was seldom seen without her small Brownie camera.

She only watched Channel 5 and asked for the Denver Post every week.

Survivors include two brothers Douglas C. (Eutana) Jarvie of Green River and Alonzo (Lunk) Jarvie of McKinnon; four nephews and two nieces and one special friend, Nola Ettleman.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother Archie Jarvice; two sisters, Ruth Jarvie and Nellie Nelson; brother-in-law Harold Nelson; sister-in-law Betty Lorraine Jarvie; two nephews, Gaylen Jarvie and Craig Jarvie; and niece Diane Nelson.

Cremation has taken place and the family will hold a simple graveside service in her and Ruth Jarvie’s memory at a later date.
