Pamela Jean Mueller

Pam was born October 26, 1960 in Ripon, WI, the youngest of four children of Kenneth and Jeanette (Butzlaff) Mueller. She was much younger than her siblings and they liked to tease her that the police brought her and they can come and take her away. Pam was active in 4-H for many years, showing cattle at the county fair. Her pride was having the Reserved Grand Champion cow in her last year of 4-H. She and her sister used to coach girls’ Little League softball for many years. She also liked to play games/cards with family and friends, of which she had many. Pam enjoyed all things family related, especially her grandchildren. She truly loved being a grandmother and spent as much time with them as possible.

Survivors include her son, Matthew (Sam Palacios) Mueller and his three children, Ayreanna, Jaxson and Madison of Neenah, WI; sister, Vicki (Allan) Burr of AZ; and brother, Jeff (Sandy) Mueller of Ripon, WI. She leaves behind many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Pam was preceded in death by her parents, Kenneth and Jeanette Mueller; brother, DeWayne Mueller; and nephew, Jeffery Mueller, Jr.
