Pamela Clark (Fields)

July 2, 1953 — February 29, 2024

On the afternoon of February 29th, 2024, Pam passed away at her home in Millard, Nebraska of an apparent heart attack. She was 70 years old.

Pam was born in Council Bluffs, Iowa on July 2nd, 1953 at 11:32 AM. She was the second child and first daughter of Phillip Conrad and Wanda Joyce Fields.

Pam was the second oldest of 5 siblings, and by her brothers and sisters accounts, the smartest of the lot. She taught her little sister Sandi how to count to 10 in Spanish, which Sandi said served her well on trips to Mexico and allowed her to order the correct amount of tequila shots.

She had a voracious appetite for reading and always seemed to have at least one book going. When she and her first husband Kenny bought their first house, there was always a large bookshelf filled with books.

Pam loved to keep her mind active, she loved to play word and strategy games, and it has been said that she'd often call out her niece Jamie for cheating when they played online scrabble! But her active mind was not just busy at work with games, puzzles, and books, she tackled her work in the trucking industry with the same passion for life long learning.

She worked for years as a safety director, the co-owner of a small trucking company, and later even got her CDL and became a driver. Her ability to grasp the complexities of the industry and her "tough enough" which also happened to be her CB radio handle, but affable nature made her a fan of drivers and brokers alike.

The last twenty years of her life was spent in the companionship of her friend Tom. Together they ran Thomas Mitchell Trucking Company, traveled, and created a life long love.

What Pam will most be remembered for is her kindness and acceptance of everyone in her large circle. She was an exceptional listener, a gift she almost certainly got from her mom, and always listened without judgment, gave just enough advice to push people along to their own decision and enough space to be who they truly were. She was always willing to drop everything to come to a friend or family members rescue, offer assistance where needed, or just be a shoulder to cry on; never asking for anything in return.

Pam was preceded in death by her mother, Wanda Joyce Fields; her father, Phillip Conrad Fields, and nephew, Shawn Fields.

Pam is survived by her friend, Thomas Mitchell; (daughter Jessica and her husband Harley, grandkids Kaylee, Keden, Kasen, and Kali);sons Jason Talcott (Melissa, Madi, Hayden), Jacob Talcott (Wendy, Jonah, Anna, Caleb), Ricky Clark, Jr. (Korissa, Camdyn, Kylie, and expected baby Clark), and Tim Hill; brothers Doug Fields (Linda), Tim Fields, and Philip Fields; sister Sandi Sullivan (John); nieces; nephews; cousins; aunts; uncles and friends.
