Pamela "None" (family nickname for No Middle Name) Carson, 68, passed away early Christmas morning at Pikes Peak Hospice in Penrose Hospital, Colorado Springs. She is now at peace after a brief but difficult battle with an acute form of leukemia.

Pam was preceded in death by her parents, Luther and Betty Carson. She is survived by her brother, Kent Carson, and nephews Travis and Matthew Carson.

Pam was born in Salina, Kansas on January 4, 1947. As an Air Force "brat" she moved with her family from base to base around the world. She graduated from Berlin American High School while at sea on the cruise ship SS United States returning to the U.S. from her dad's overseas tour. Pam then attended Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota as a music major, and went on to graduate from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor of Arts degree. She settled in Colorado Springs where she was married and divorced; and held a variety of jobs including tenured high school English teacher and administrative assistant positions in City government, at the Broadmoor golf course, and at USAA.

Pam was a gentle, considerate, and whimsically humorous soul, truly unique in her almost child-like and unassuming innocence. While suffering from a number of illnesses of her own, she sacrificed many years of her life to care for her aging mother. During that time Pam developed a special bond with her mom's Maltese dog, Prince, who remained her constant companion after her mom's passing.

A private service and interment will take place at Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs. In lieu of flowers Pam requested donations be made to the Humane Society of your choice.

Pam, you were truly one of a kind! We love you and will miss you always.
