Knoxville lawyer Pamela Gail Steele died yesterday at the age of 74. Born in Florida, she was raised in Knoxville and attended the University of Louisville School of Law and the Georgetwon University Law Center. She worked in Washington, D.C., for a time at the offices of the U.S. Small Business Administration and Economic Development Administration before returning to Knoxville in the 1980s. She joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and she eventually became civil chief in that office until her retirement in 2006. A funeral service will be held at 3 p.m. on March 26 at the First Presbyterian Church. The family will receive friends following the service in the Fellowship Hall. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial gifts be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation or to Planned Parenthood.
