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 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.
