Pamela A. Peardot-Czepiel (61) of Fort Pierce, FL and formerly of Tomah, died, Wednesday, May 30, 2012, after losing her battle with cancer. She was born on September 7, 1950 to Lloyd and Barbara Sheldon in Hillsboro, Wisconsin. She was a member of the 1968 High School Graduating Class of Cassville. In 1969, she was united in marriage to Gary Peardot. For many years, Pam worked at Mr. D’s bar and restaurant, drove school bus for the Tomah School District, and drove semi-truck for over 15 years for Schneider National. As a driver, she received an award for 1 million miles safe driving. She later was united in marriage to Stan Czepiel on March 1, 2010 at The Little White Chapel in Las Vegas. They relocated to the Fort Pierce, Florida area and have resided there since. Pam loved her family dearly, even if we did not deserve her love. She also enjoyed two other activities, NASCAR (#17 Matt Kenseth), and frequenting casinos. She attended many NASCAR races, usually with numerous family members. This leads us to believe she enjoyed the family time more than the actual race. When Pam played the slots, she seemed to always come out ahead. Pam will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
She is survived by her husband Stanley Czepiel of Fort Pierce, FL; 2 daughters, Renee and Michelle Peardot both of Tomah; a son-in-law, Jeff Heidemann of Tomah; grandchildren, Skylar Knight, John (Shade Garrett) Richard Dettinger, Brenna Knight, Brandon Knight and Reyanna Ludke; a brother, Rodney (Wanda) Sheldon of Tomah; a sister Brenda (Jon) Wehling of North Carolina; a brother-in-law, Larry Williams of Tomah; nieces and nephews, Michael (Sheri) Sheldon, Jill (Jeremy) Loendorf, Aaron (Danielle) Williams, Abbey (Matt) Honaker, Jennifer (Paul) Prissel, Bradley Williams, Melissa (Ben Smothers) Williams, Stefanie Wehling; numerous great nieces and nephews, many other relatives and dear friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lloyd and Barbara Sheldon, a brother Michael Sheldon, and a sister Donna Williams
