On October 3, 1965, Pam was united in marriage to Dean Spooner. Together they raised 5 children and numerous foster children.
Pam, along with her husband Dean owned and operated The Village Dry Cleaners. She also worked at Peerless Dry Cleaning for several years. Prior to Pam’s retirement due to health issues, she also worked at Nutting Co, Benchmark Foam and Moffett Industries.
Pam was a creative person who enjoyed teaching people how to make ceramic art in her shop, Tin Roof Ceramics. She also created several oil paintings.
Ever the outdoors woman, Pam was an avid hunter and fisherman. She was active in the local trap and skeet club for many years. Not many could out shoot her (maybe Annie Oakley). Pam enjoyed being out in the boat, tending her flower garden and most of all raising her children and spending time with her grandchildren and extended family. Pam was known for her welcoming smile and never ending abundance of love for family and friends.
Pam was a member of the Presbyterian Church in Watertown, SD, serving as treasurer for several years.
