Inurnment will be at 4:30 pm, Saturday at Riverside Cemetery, Pierre, SD with Pastor Peggy Stempson officiating. Pamela died Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at ManorCare Health Services after a lengthy struggle with cancer.
Spitzer-Miller Funeral Home, 1111 S. Main St., Aberdeen is in charge of arrangements.
Pamela was born on January 6, 1963 in Tuscan, AZ to William and Robin Pinneo. Terry Premus married her mother on August 9, 1967 and adopted Pamela soon after. Terry and Robin raised her together with love and devotion.
Pam graduated from Winner High School in May 1981. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Northern State University in May 1985.
On April 12, 1986 Pam married Steven Haug of Aberdeen in the First United Methodist Church. To this union three children were born; Veronica Justine, Seth Harrison, and Rachel Elizabeth. Pamela dedicated her life to the betterment of children. She managed and cared for children in her home while her children were young so she could be with them. She worked as a paraprofessional in the Special Education Department at Central High school. She engaged in countless community events through the Boy and Girl Scouts of Aberdeen. She was a wonderful child advocate. Many of her former daycare children, students, and scouts still kept in contact with her.
Pam worked as an administrative assistant to Eide Bailly, LLP, as a membership specialist for Girl Scouts of Nyoda Council, as a program and learning specialist for Girl Scouts Dakota Horizon, and most recently as a community partnership manager for Salvation Army.
Pam served her community as the PTA Vice President for Central High School from 2001-2007; as the Girl Scout Troop Leader for Troop 115 and Troop 175 from 1999-2006; as a member of boy Scout committee from 1995-2006; and as a member of First United Methodist Church from 1985-the present.
Pam loved watching her children grow into compassionate and productive citizens. She supported all three children with their post-secondary education. Pam enjoyed traveling with her family to Mexico and Hawaii. She especially loved going with her girls on scouting trips to New York City and Disney World. Her passion for creating delicious meals and holiday treats will be long remembered.
Grateful for having shared Pamela's life are her children, Veronica Haug, Sioux City, IA, Seth Haug, Watertown and Rachel Haug, Aberdeen, her parents; Terry and Robin Premus, Mission, TX, sister, Nicole (Paul) Cruz, Mission TX, nieces, Samantha and Anastasia Cruz, aunts, Vicki Thronson, Mina, Bobbi (Scott) Berry, Spirit Lake, IA, uncles, Bill Palmer, Pierre, SD, Gary (Jean) Premus, Scottsbluff, NE, and numerous cousins and friends.
She is preceded in death by her grandparents; William and Helen Palmer and Berdean Widboom, her uncles; Brent Palmer and Jim Thronson and Great Aunt Eva (Louis) Roth.
In lieu of flowers the family prefers memorials to the Salvation Army, the Aberdeen Girl Scouts or the First United Methodist Church of Aberdeen.
