Pamela Ann Peil

Pamela Ann Peil passed away peacefully on May 10, 2021 at St. Peter's Hospital in Helena surrounded by her family.

Pam was born in Detroit Michigan on Sept. 24, 1947 to Terry E. and Genevieve M. (Novak) Jenereaux. She was the oldest of four siblings and looked after and protected her sisters and brother. Her younger years were spent in the Seven Mile and Joy area of Detroit. She was proud to have been a singer in their church's choir. In 1960 her father accepted a position at the Fort Harrison VA Center in Helena. Being the oldest of four children (Paula L. Pomeroy, Dennis M. Jenereaux and Terri-Gene Fowler), Pam was responsible to help her mother move the family to Montana in a Station Wagon with visions of go to the 'Wild West'. She attended high school in Helena and graduated from Helena High in 1965.

Pam loved Montana and its people, and her love of people and their stories served her well while being a banquet waitress and bartender. Her work as a server included places like Jorgenson's, Montana Club, Frontier Town and the Helena Elks Lodge. She was generous of spirit and a fierce protector of family and people she chose as family.

Pam married Carl Peil on Feb. 21, 1970 in Helena. They were blessed with the arrival of daughter Kimberly a couple years later.

Pam was a Rainbow Girl, a Queen in Job's Daughters, and a member of the Oriental Band of the Daughters of the Nile, Sapphira Temple.

Pam joins her mother, father, and sister Paula with her passing. She is survived by her husband Carl, daughter Kimberly A. Warren (Jeff), brother Dennis, sister Terri-Gene; granddaughters Cassie Warren, Rylie Warren & Josie Warren; great granddaughter Mara Woslager; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Pam's passions included world traveling, deep sea fishing, animals, rock hunting, antiquing, bowling, camping and road trips. There are not a lot of roads in Montana, especially western Montana, that she hasn't been down with her husband and departed friends Dorothy and Jon. Her world travels included trips to France, Italy, Fiji, Tahiti, New Zealand, and Australia. Later with her sister Paula she invested in a Deep-Sea Fishing Boat in Mexico where they vacationed for many years.

Per Pam's request her body has been cremated and there will be no funeral. A celebration/reception/Lunch in Pam's honor will be held at Anderson Stevenson Wilke Funeral Home, 3750 N. Montana Ave., in the Social Hall beginning at 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, May 15th.

My heart goes out to Carl, Kim, and all of Pam's family and friends. Pam was my neighbor for my entire childhood and was like a 2nd mother to me in so many ways. She was always generous with her time, attention, and love. I will treasure those memories always.

Dear Carl, Kim and family. It was with shock and so much sadness that I read of Pam's passing. My heart goes out to all of your family for your loss. We loved Pam so much for what she did in her kindness and friendship to my mother Dorothy. They had so many laughs, cries and fun times together for years. The two of them even came to visit me in Canada one time. Mom loved traveling all the roads of Montana with Pam and Carl. Pam was a little stick of dynamite. She knew how to have fun and we loved all her ways to play dice and the many fun times we had with you and Pam, Carl. She will be remembered very close in our hearts forever. Love Bill and Marcia

Pam was more than my sister. She was my protector, leader of great adventures, musical muse. My being the only boy in the family is was also my big brother, neat trick. In later years, after moms and dads passing, she became head our family. See you down the road sis, I will bring some new tunes to dance to.
