I don't see it in my control panel, I don't see the uninstall in the start menu.
So I uninstalled my iTunes.  icloud is still there. (since I installed iTunes and icloud at the same time.)

A little clarification is needed here.  When you wrote that you didn't see it in your control panel, do you mean in the "Programs & Features" panel or as its own panel or both?  

Also, did you log out of the iCloud account before trying to remove anything?  It's always a good idea to disassociate one's computer from a service by logging out before removing the tools to access that service.

One option here is to re-install iCloud completely and then test your account.  If it works, then log out and try to remove it.

Should that fail, you might be faced with a manual removal, which can be arduous:
- Folders in the Program Files area to remove
- User preferences (appdata, ...) to remove
- Registry entries to remove  (careful with this one!!!)
- ...

Finally, remember to back up anything you want to keep prior to logging out and removing the service.

Install Revouninstaller and see if Revo finds iCloud.  Then uninstall iCloud from there.
