She is preceded in death by her father William M. Steen, her mother Barbara J. Steen, and her eldest brother William M. Steen Jr.
Pam was born on February 29, 1964, in Sacramento, California to Bill and Barbara Steen. She graduated from Kirksville High School in 1982 and received her associates degree from Northeast Missouri State University in the same year. Growing up in Queen City Missouri, Pam moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in 1982, where she met her soulmate, Ron, whom she married in Salt Lake City, February 12th, 1990. She started work at American Testing Services, Inc in 1985, purchasing the company in 1993.
Pam was an accomplished businesswoman who not only owned with her husband American Testing; but was the owner of Excel Academy and Quail Park Daycare Centers. She worked hard her entire life and instilled that same work ethic into her four daughters who she loved with her entire heart. Though Pam suffered from health conditions throughout the last twenty years; she was always full of life and love. Pam loved Lay's potato chips, Mountain Dew (ice cold and in a can) and the occasional cigarette. More than that she loved her grandchildren, who brought her great joy.
Her love, generosity and stubbornness will be missed more than words could ever say.
