Pamela Elaine Krajnik was born on August 20, 1951, in Anchorage, Alaska to Houston and Marion Hitt. After her father’s service in the U.S. Navy, Pamela moved with her family to Boise, Idaho at the age of 5. After graduating from Borah High School in 1969, Pamela married and was blessed with two daughters, Sara and Amy. She later divorced and went on to chase her dreams and graduated as valedictorian from the College of Southern Idaho with a bachelor’s degree in Nursing in 1976. In 1977, Pamela met the love of her life, Gary Krajnik, and his two children, Michael and Jodie. In June of 1981, Pamela and Gary were married and went on to raise their children together on their family farm in south Nampa. Pam and Gary enjoyed nearly 40 years of marriage on their farm together.
Pamela had a servant’s heart and dedicated over 40 years of her life to the nursing and healthcare profession. She served as the Director of Nursing at Mercy Medical Center in the 1980s and later owned the Wellness Connection before transitioning into the Outreach Coordinator position at Journeys Hospice. Pamela lived a full and beautiful life dedicated to volunteerism and helping others. Pamela was rooted deep in her faith and love for the Lord. At the age of 14, she became a Christian and spent most of her adult life involved in church. In 2015, Pamela and Gary served on a mission’s trip to Nepal. She was an active board member with the Salvation Army and Gala Coordinator for 20 years. Served on the Woman’s Century Club as a member and past President from 2019-2020, the Bennett Club, an Ambassador with the Nampa Chamber of Commerce, and the Mayors Election committee. Pamela lived life without boundaries and worked to make an impact outside of the Nampa community as well. For 19 years, Gary and Pamela spent the winter months volunteering in Death Valley National Park. When she wasn’t hiking mountains with Gary, Pamela loved to spend time at Silver Creek Plunge each summer with her family and close friends.
