Pam’s wishes were to donate her heart and lungs to the University Of Iowa School Of Medicine as medical research because of her rare congenital heart condition.

Pam was a very sociable lady. She loved talking with friends and family, was a Disney enthusiast, and loved country music, going to many concerts and shows. As a younger girl she enjoyed riding horses and showing at the fair.

Pam is survived by her son Jeremy Manser of Des Moines, her father Jerry and his wife Patty Nichol of Knoxville, one sister, Julie Minnihan of Knoxville, and one brother, Andrew Nichol of Knoxville. She is also survived by her aunts, uncles, cousins, and many dear friends.
