Pamela Renee Steveson (Mills) was Born in Newcastle Wyoming on July 27, 1961.  Passed away unexpectantly at Plains Regional Hospital on 19th June, 2022.

Pam was born to Vernard and Juanita Mills  of Newcastle, Wyoming.  Pam graduated from Newcastle High School in 1980 and went on to study at  

Casper College.  She met James Steveson and they were married on 9 March 1981 to this marriage 3  

wonderful children Zac, James, and Amanda were born. She is now an Army soldiers wife which would  

take her on many different journeys of travel as her husband received numerous assignment  

locations.  They recently celebrated their 41st Anniversary together with 3 wonderful children by the  

names of James Steveson Jr., (Zac) Zachary Steveson, and Amanda Steveson (Downing).   

During their first 19 years of marriage she traveled the world with her husband as he received numerous  

assignment orders.  She really enjoyed her time in Germany visiting the many different towns,  

especially excited when the wine festivals were in season to sample, October Fest activities, and Volks  

Marches.  Alaska brought the nice summers to fish for King Salmon and salt water for Halibut.  She was  

not too fond of the winters and short daylight, but the long daylight summers made up for it.  Louisiana,  

and Texas brought excitement to go down to the gulf coast to fish for shrimp, red drum, and the blue  

crabs. This required skill fishing from shore. She would tie a piece of chicken neck 

to a piece of string, throw it into the water and wait for it to get tight then slowly drag it in. 

Later on in life after her husband retired from the service they settled down in Rapid City, South Dakota,  

and bought a camper.  She loved to just stay in the Black Hills of South Dakota.   

There was so much to do with family and grandchildren, along with our adopted children. Pam loved  

fishing, and ATV’ing on the Black Hills Trail system during our camping outings. Pam over the years just  

loved spoiling our 7 grandchildren along with our many adopted children who called her mom.  

Pam enjoyed many different hobbies in her life.  Earlier in life she loved crocheting, knitting, and 

canning that she learned from her mother.  Later on in her life she began to get more involved in  

canning during the summertime. The thanksgiving and Christmas season was her favorite time for she  

would do so much baking of goodies. She just had to share with family and friends around her locally. 

Pam is preceded in death by her son (Zac), father, mother, sister, grandparents, and  father-in-law. 

She is survived by her husband James Steveson, Son-James Jr (Becky) Steveson, daughter
