Pam was born on May 7, 1967, in Evanston, Illinois to James and Patricia (Epp) Dolan. After graduating from The College of William and Mary with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, she began a career in training and management in the retail and finance industries. She obtained her MBA from Vanderbilt University and soon after moved to Evansville, Indiana. It was there that she met Lane E. Pille, whom she joined in marriage on September 25, 1999, in Evansville. The couple resided in Evansville and in Madison, Wisconsin prior to moving to Sartell, Minnesota in 2004.

Pam was a loving and devoted wife and mother. An active member of First United Methodist Church, she served as wedding coordinator and as a member of the bell choir. As a mom, she was deeply involved in her daughters’ schooling and activities; she volunteered at their elementary school and, as they became involved in dance, made many close friends as a proud “dance mom” cheering them on at recitals and competitions and watching their talents grow.

Pam loved the simple things in life. She treasured spending time with her family, whether exploring a new nature trail, traveling to a new town, or simply helping with homework. She was a passionate gardener and a skilled cook and baker. An avid reader, she devoured books on any subject; she enjoyed puzzles of all types and found great satisfaction in beating her brother at board games. Her family and friends valued her dedication, her intelligence, and her consummate organizational skills in whatever she undertook.

Pam is survived by her husband, Lane; daughters, Anna and Sarah; parents, James and Patricia Dolan of Portage, Michigan; brother, Bob Dolan (Mark Lacotta) of Seattle, Washington; mother-in-law, Beverly Pille of Plainview; and brothers- and sisters-in-law, Laura (Scott) Penn of Cisco, Texas, Luke Pille of Plainview, and Lenora Pille of Plainview.

She was preceded in death by her father-in-law, Reicher Pille.
