Pamela Brasher Watson December 28, 1943 - November 12, 2021

Pamela Brasher Watson, wife, mother, and grandmother, returned home on Friday November 12, 2021, after several years of dementia. She was born on December 28, 1943, in Salt Lake City, to John Franklin and Esther Elizabeth Barber Brasher. She was the third child in a family of 4 girls and 2 boys: Pat Horne, Jay Brasher, Marge Nydegger, Larry Brasher, and Barbara Larson.

After marrying Brent Watson in the Salt Lake Temple on June 14, 1966, they spent over 54 years raising two sons, a daughter (all four of them), and welcoming 14 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren to their family. She and Brent loved spending time with their family including grandchildren events and reunions that they planned. Her favorite family reunion was an annual one in Bear Lake occurring over several years.

Pam enjoyed serving the Lord in church positions including several times as a ward and stake Relief Society and Young Women president. Perhaps one of her favorite church callings was serving a full-time proselyting mission with Brent in the Provo, Utah mission. She loved praying with people and trying to learn Spanish.

She loved being in business. Pam was successful in several ventures including auto finance flooring in California and her real estate developments while in Utah. Her proudest business achievement was her Rim Village multi-family real estate development in Moab, Utah. She loved to state she didn’t pay herself anything for the development until it was completed, and she saw how much was left over.

Pam was very competitive in sports (skiing, basketball, and softball) and almost any kind of game (including cards). She and Brent often developed many friendships with other couples over card games. She loved her cherished friendships that she picked up along the way as she and Brent lived in several places in Utah and California. She also enjoyed developing floor plans with builders for several homes she lived in.

Finally and most importantly, her testimony of Jesus Christ was unyielding, certain, and powerful. While not perfect, she was ever trying to follow the Lord’s example. In fact, her stated motto was: Just Love. She will be missed by family and many friends, but someday there will be many sweet reunions. We love you Momma!

    To Pam’s Family,
    We loved your mom so much. When we moved into Spanish Highlands Ward a few years ago, she and Brent made us feel so welcome and we quickly became the best of friends.
    We spent many great times together playing cards, going to dinner, spending time at our cabin and riding our side by sides plus many other fun stuff. What great memories we made together.
    We missed them when they went to live at the Ashford but didn’t forget the great friendship we had. Now, they are both gone and spending great times together without us.
    We want you to know what wonderful people your parents were and send our love and condolences to you all.
    Bob and Phyllis Brock

    Steve, Mike and Jenny,

    I’m so sorry you lost your cute mom. I remember her as a girl who was fun to be around, smiling and always taking care of others.

    I thought of your family all day today and regret I wasn’t able to make it to her funeral. I would have loved to have seen each of you. I’m grateful to call you my family and look forward to when I see you all again.

    I’m grateful your mom is free from life’s hardships and can be whole again with your dad.

    Love you all!!
