Andrew Bauer -1934
from the Burlington Call
Mr. Andrew Bauer was born in "Old Alf" Russia, on Nov. 30,
1864, and came to the U. S. at the age of 25 years to North Dakota, and three
was married in 1893 to Katharine Stahlecker and in the same year came to
Bethune, Colo. Five children were born to this union, one dying in
infancy. His wife died in 1901. In 1903 he was married to Mrs.,
Beats Betcher Hayne and to this union six children were born.
He was 69 years, 10 months and 1 day old when he died. He
was in ill health for the last four years. Four weeks ago his condition
became worse and last Friday he took seriously ill and his children were called.
On September 29, he felt his end nearing and called for the
pastor of Immanuel's Church to give him the Lord's Supper. In humble
contrition he confessed his unworthiness and asked the Lord for pardon and
grace. Upon receiving Holy communion he said that now he was feeling much
better and felt at peace with his God. The following visit by the pastor
found no change in his state and always found him willing to go home.
He leaves to mourn, his widow, Mrs. Beata Bauer and fourteen
children; Mrs. Wm. Adolf Jr., Martin Bauer, Mrs. David Schlichenmayer and Fred
Bauer, all of Bethune; August Bauer of Norwood, Albert Bauer at home; Anna
M Bauer of Kansas City; Mrs. Truman L. Hooker at home; Edward H. Bauer of
Bethune and Theodore G. Bauer at home; and this step-children, Mrs. Mary
Degerling of Bethune, Andrew Hayne of Twin City Falls, Idaho; Mrs. J. A.
Mitchell of Kansas City and Fred Hayne of Spokane, Wash.; two brothers, Gottleib
and Phillip Bauer, both at Torrington, Canada, and one sister, Mrs., Carline
Boufering in Russia; nine grandchildren and two great grand-children.
His remains were laid to rest on the cemetery of the Lutheran
Church in the Settlement, north of Bethune, Oct. 5. The funeral service
was conducted by the pastor, H. L. Woelber. The Call extends its deep
sympathy to all who mourn his death.
