Pamala Ruth Newton was born December 1, 1955 in Fort Worth, Texas. The daughter of a career military man, she moved many times as a child and lived in various places all over the world.

Away from work, Pam enjoyed reading and working puzzles. She was a gifted artist who had recently started diamond art painting.
