Sometime after 1980, Pamela was hired by Lionel Luthor to be his son Lex's nanny. In 1981, Pamela had an affair with Lionel, which resulted in a daughter that Lionel gave up for adoption. Around 1993, Pamela was forced by Lionel to leave after Lex's mother's death.
Lex initially spurned Pamela, until Lionel told him that he was afraid that Pamela would ask Lex for money as she was dying of cancer. Lex later visited Pamela at the hospital, bringing her a book she had admired earlier when visiting the mansion. Pamela explained that she is ashamed that it took her so long to come to see him. She was angry that she let Lionel scare her away. She expressed regret that she couldn't help him grow up and told him how proud she is of the man he has become. Pamela later died with Lex by her side, as he accepted her apology.
Years later, Tess had discovered that she was the daughter of Lionel and Pamela.
