BAUER - Frances Gertrude (nee Aitken). With deepest sadness, we announce the unexpected passing of our mother. She was born June 2, 1915 at Macoun, SK. She was predeceased by her parents Andrew and Fanny, her husband Robert, her brother George, daughters Georgina and Roberta and granddaughter Teri Lin. Left to cherish her memory are: daughters Linda (Bernie), Brenda (Keith) and Shirley; sons, Chester (Joy), Bob (Diane), Ken (Amy), Don (Elaine), Lorne, Larry (Lynn); 20 grandchildren and ten great grandchildren (so far); and her sister Evelyn. Frances was employed in the early years of her marriage and before, at Revenue Canada, Census Canada and Canada Post. She was very family oriented and was the matriarch of the Bauer family. She had an indomitable spirit and was very much loved and respected by her family. Her other interests were knitting, crocheting, sewing, gardening, ceramics, and she loved to go shopping! We spent many hours playing her favorite game Yahtzee. She loved crosswords, and every other kind of puzzle. Her pets were very dear to her. She was filled with spunk and zest for family get togethers and had a great deal of talent for baking and cooking; especially butter tarts! Following her wishes, cremation and no funeral service. There will be a memorial gathering on Saturday, January 28 at 3:30 p.m. at the W.A. Edwards Family Centre 333 4th Ave. North (courtesy parking at Saskatoon Funeral Home).
