August 5, 1923 - May 20, 2021
Our beloved mother Winnifred (Winnie) Marie Orr Bauman passed away after a brief acute illness on May 20 at age 97 years 9 months of age. Winnie was born in Cass City Michigan August 5,1923. She had one sibling, Margaret, who proceeded her in death. As a young woman she trained as a teacher and then attended Ferris State College where she majored in Pharmacy. She worked as a Pharmacist for many years, taking time off to have a family with husband of 46 years, Clement Charles Bauman who she married in 1951. Winnie was a long time resident of Pleasant Ridge and then Royal Oak in her later years. She was a devout Christian and member of Royal Oak's First Presbyterian Church. She is survived by daughter, Kathy Bauman Burck, son, Chris Bauman, grandchildren Jennifer and Charles, great grandchildren Makayla, Hannah, and Bryson. Winnie loved to travel and over the course of her long life was able to visit all 50 states and several foreign countries including Canada, Scandinavia, the Caribbean, Europe along the Rhine, Turkey, and South Africa. Winnie also enjoyed cruising in the family boat. She enjoyed taking people out for fun on the water. She also enjoyed camping in the motorhome she and Clem converted from a bus. One of Winnies favorite things was having people over for dinner. Winnie was very social and had good friends all over the country. She spent her last years at a wonderful assisted living, Young Home for the Elderly in Warren. Unfortunately the Covid epidemic prevented her devoted family and friends from visiting as much as they would have liked in her last year. She will be sorely missed. A memorial gathering will take place on Saturday June 19, from 12:00 p.m. until time of service, 1pm, at William Sullivan and Son, Funeral Home, 705 W. Eleven Mile Rd. (4 blocks east of Woodward), Royal Oak, Michigan. Share a memory at www.SullivanFuneralDirectors.com.
