Condolences Left For Jeannette Bauer

Jeanne was one of the Sweetest persons I have ever known. A true friend and joy to be around. She rarely complained about her problems because she always knew there were many others who were in worse shape than she was. She Loved going to the Zoo, down to Hermann and just getting out to be with family. She had a Huge love for dogs and Colby, Daisy Mae and Murphy were her favorites although she never met a dog she didn’t fall in Love with. About 20 years ago when she was in better health, she did a great job helping raise her sisters dog, CuJo (aka Blackie dog). I could not have found a more down to earth family when I married Jeanne’s sister, Mary. You don’t have any idea what “close” is until you meet this family. Every sibling was involved in Jeanne’s care over the many years she needed help. Jeanne’s pain and struggles have ended and she is now enjoying what we ALL Hope to experience some day. Jeanne will be sorely missed by everyone she ever met, GOD Bless Jeanne and the entire Bauer Family. Sincerely, Ken Schaper
