Audrey JoAnne York Kuehl, the ninth child of Mabel and Carl York, was born on February 2, 1930. JoAnne passed away on April 1, 2021, at the age of 91 in Dallas Center, Iowa. She lived all of her life in Dallas County, Iowa and graduated from Dallas Center High School in 1947. While at school, she met her husband, Kenneth Kuehl, and they were married on November 15, 1947, in Des Moines, Iowa. They had five children to this union. JoBeth (Dan) Wiese, Leslie Kuehl, Judy (David) Cravens, Jane Kuehl and Kent Kuehl (Shari). After JoAnne and Kenny raised their five children, she went to work at Parker Brothers, Inc., retiring after 15 years. You could tell her love of gardening from their home on Hatton Street. The garden would change colors throughout the summer. She liked antiques and spent time at auctions and decorated her home with some beautiful pieces she purchased. The home on Hatton Street was beautifully decorated at Christmas time and for several years was on the Christmas walk in Dallas Center. JoAnne also enjoyed her volunteer work at Spurgeon Manor and working elections for many years. She was a long-time member of the Questers Club. Her family meant a lot to her and continues to grow.

Left to cherish her are 5 children, 8 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and one on the way, and one great, great-grandchild and one on the way, one sister, Imo McKenzie and one brother, Allen (Gus) York, and countless nieces, nephews, and friends. Her husband Kenny, preceded her in death in 2009, as well as her 3 brothers, 5 sisters, and one great-grandson Davis James Gear.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Dallas Center Public Library of which she was a past board member.

A celebration of life is being planned for later this year.
