Pamela Lee Wildman

Pamela Lee Wildman, 64, of Iowa City, passed away on April 5, 2021 due to a short battle with cancer.

Pamela was born on December 23, 1956 to Jay and Doris Wildman.  Pamela attended City High in Iowa City, and graduated in 1975.  In !976, she was married and later had two daughters, Melissa and Samantha. Melissa and her husband, Robert Kooyenga, reside in Kalona, and Samantha Oxley lives in Iowa City.  Pamela has four lovely grandchildren, Skylat Oxley, Adele Kooyenga, Jay Kooyenga, and Rylea White.  Pam has two sisters, Kay and Billie, along with three brothers, Jeffery, Doug and Greg.  She has nine nieces and nephews.  

Pam enjoyed playing cards, laying out next to the pool, visiting with friends and family and cooking for every holiday and special occasion.  Spoiling her grandkids is what she enjoyed the most.  Pam retired from the University of Iowa after 30 dedicated years.  

She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Jay and Doris Wildman, her granddaughter Vivian Kooygenya, and her dog Mojo.
