Pam Batman Kuehl was born October 14, 1948, in Jewell, the daughter of Frank Allen and Olive Lucille (Johnson) Batman. She attended school in Roland-Story and Ames, graduating from Ames High School in 1966. She then attended Iowa State University, studying Fashion Merchandising and Design, where she met the love of her life, Dale Kuehl. They were united in marriage June 24, 1968, in Atlantic. To this union, two children were born, Joseph Dale (J.D.) and Danielle Suzanne.

Pam was well known as a quilt designer and instructor, teaching and marketing her quilts and patterns throughout the Midwest through her Patchworks company, while also working at Prairie Star Quilts in Elk Horn. She was a longtime instructor at Twin Lakes Bible Camp Quilt Retreats, one of her favorite places to teach. She co-founded and coordinated Cinnamon Season Boutiques and Heartwarmers Boutiques, semi-annual showcases in Atlantic and Omaha, where local craft and artisan talents displayed and sold their wares. Pam also served several years on the Atlantic Community School District School Board, including a stint as School Board President. She was active with PEO, was a strong supporter and volunteer with 4-H and a passionate volunteer for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, serving as an inspiration to others as a cancer survivor.

Pam’s love for Iowa State football and basketball was “Forever True.” As longtime season ticket holders, she and Dale enjoyed traveling to bowl games and post-season basketball games. Of course, she was always proudly decked out in Iowa State gear.

Pam’s zest for life and her fun-loving attitude were evident whether it was the Batman clothing she often wore head to toe or even the purple panties she and her family sported while she battled cancer and won. Her infectious smile and personality were always on display and will be missed by all.
