Pam Gaynor was born in Russellville, KY. She died at home in Hospice Care on
December 16, 2019 from kidney cancer. She was happily surprised to reach her 80th
year. As the smartest kid in her class she went on to receive a PhD in Psychology at the
University of Chicago and spent ten years in academia.

She taught at the University ofIllinois Medical Center; was an associate professor at
CSU where she started thePsych of Women class; and taught at an alternative
school, William James College in Michigan. Leaving academia, she founded the
Centennial Center for Human Services in Fort Collins where she had a successful
psychotherapy practice for many years.

Pam was an intrepid Colorado mountain woman. She loved her “magic land” in
Buckhorn Canyon where she slept in a tipi. Her cherished primary residence for 35
years was in beautiful Poudre Canyon. There she raised chickens, an abundant
vegetable garden and cultivated colorful flowers of all kinds. Her mountain life kept her
strong and offered ample inspiration for creative pursuits including gardening and
flower photography. Two of her photographs won national awards.

She will be greatly missed by her beloved partner of 38 years, Judy Underwood, her
step-daughter Danya Rivlin, Danya’s husband Eyal and their daughters Mia and Ella.

Pam was my teacher for a course in Personality Psychology at CSU (August 1972), and it is not too much to say she changed my life. The influence of her enthusiasm and willingness to engage in a dialog that helped me along my way could not easily be stated. Thank you, Pam. I am glad we have the brief email exchange in the spring of 2019, and wish so fervently we could have met, but that was not to be. Still, I will carry my memory of your spirit as long as I'm here.
