Pam Marks Bryan

Pamela Marks Bryan, loving wife, mother, grandma, sister, and friend, passed away Sunday, May 7, 2017. Pam was born October 25, 1958 in Spanish Fork, Utah to Earl D. and Rowane Good Marks.  She attended schools in Spanish Fork, graduating from Spanish Fork High School in 1976.  She continued her education at Weber State University receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.

Pam married Larry Phillips in 1976 and they were blessed with four children. They were later divorced.  She was married to Bruce Clark for 7 years before he was tragically killed in a plane crash.  On April 13, 2009, she married John McKay Bryan.  They were married and sealed for time and all eternity in the LDS Provo Temple on August 30, 2014.  She was a dedicated wife and mother and loved her family dearly.

Pam loved everything about being a nurse!   She loved caring for people and meeting new people wherever she worked.  She also loved the many patients, friends and coworkers she met over the years and they loved her in return.  She was very proud of the work she did as nurse and it made her very happy.  As a registered nurse, Pam worked for IHC for many years as well as Central Utah Clinic, Central Utah Surgical Center, Riverwoods Surgical Center as an Operating Room Recovery Nurse and Utah State Hospital.  Pam spent time in Kenya with the Doctors without Borders program.  She loved serving those in need throughout her career.

Pam enjoyed tole-painting and crafts, and was the best present wrapper because she loved to give. She also loved to keep her house clean and up to date.  She was proud of her remodeling and decorating style.  Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, and Country Music were some of her favorites, and she loved her Diet Coke.  The time she spent with friends, family, and especially her grandkids are treasured memories.

Pam is survived by her husband, John; children, Codey (Brooke) Phillips, Ashley Clarke, Jamey (Zane) Norris, Casey Phillips, Jason (Breeann) Bryan, Steven (Nicole) Bryan, Tyler (Sully) Bryan, Jennifer (Jarom) Durfey, and Christina (Skyler) Zobell; her mother, Rowane Marks; and two brothers, Gary Marks and Randy Marks. She also leaves behind 22 grandchildren who will never forget her. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bruce Clark; and her father, Earl D. Marks.

  3. I was shocked to hear of Pam’s passing. My wife and I have been serving in Japan for the last 3 years. But the last I knew she was serving as a dedicated, intelligent, hard working and compassionate nurse in the operating room. She will be sorely missed. Our condolences go to all who knew and loved her. We mourn with you and pray for Heavenly Father’s comforting spirit and choicest blessings to be yours at this time of great loss. She was truly amazing. God bless her posterity. May they never forget her love and kindness.
