Cook Southland Funeral Chapel - Bauer(2019)

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Shirley Ann Bauer, beloved wife, mother and grandmother at St. Joseph’s Home - Carmel Hospice in Medicine Hat, on Wednesday, July 3, 2019, at the age of 69 years. Shirley was born on April 28, 1950, at the Medicine Hat General Hospital. She was raised in Schuler on the family farm before her marriage to Melvin Bauer on November 8, 1968. They moved and lived on another farm in Saskatchewan where they raised their three children, Tina, Wanetta and Melvin Jr. They moved to Alberta and bought a farm on the outskirts of Medicine Hat where they built a new home. She retired in Medicine Hat with her partner, Paul Johnston and occasionally worked at her daughter’s store during her retirement. Shirley loved spending time with her family and always had her dogs, Cindy and Molly by her side. From farming to floral design and her fondness for gardening, Shirley’s beautiful flowers were always the topic of discussion. A special thank you to all the caregivers who helped her fight her cancer and especially for their support throughout this difficult time. Shirley will forever be remembered in the hearts of her family; her partner of 18 years, Paul Johnston; her mother, Helen Aberle; her children, daughter, Tina Bauer and her children, Erika (Ken) Morrison their children Alexis & Ryker , Kendra (Stetson) Schlosser; son, Melvin (Jenny) Bauer and his children, Mason & Greyson , Caitlyn Bauer and her children, Jaxson & Elaina; Nicola (Tyler ) Bauer, their children Alec & Aithen; daughter, Wanetta Biggs (Darcy) and her children, Danielle Biggs (Spencer) and their son, Nolan Carr; Madison Biggs (Brandon); Paul’s children, Rebecca Johnston (Ashley), her children, Jhanna & Brooklyn; and Rodney Johnston (Ashley) and his son, Dainen. Shirley will be remembered by her siblings, Dennis (Carol), Eddie (Judy), Jerry (Brenda), Ross (Cindy), Tracy as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Shirley was predeceased by her father, Kasper Aberle and son-in-law, Daniel Biggs Jr., and two grandchildren, Diana and Maximus. The family will celebrate Shirley’s life with a time of silent reflection.

    I was shocked to hear of Shirley's passing. I have fond memories of the time spent together during our childhood. I regret that due to life circumstances and geographic distance we did not maintain contact. We last talked before the 2016 Aberle reunion. Even though we had not talked for years the connection that had been developed in our youth was very evident. I wish her entire family much comfort during this difficult time and in the future.
