I have many fond memories of Nancy Bauman. I remember her telling me how excited she was to be spending a few weeks of her summer vacation on a trip to South America to study a nocturnal rat in a jungle. I walked away thinking that only a science teacher could be looking forward to a vacation like that. I remember how one day there was a huge roar here on Connolly Street. Debbie Lindenlaub and I ran outside. I said something to Debbie about how loud the noise was. She said that what I had heard was nothing compared to what she heard in her living room. It was Tom Bauman on a large tractor tilling his backyard to replant it. Debbie found out the details and relayed them to me later. The Baumans were great neighbors. We miss them.

Maria Lúcia and I were very sorry to learn the death of Nancy Bauman. She was a great friend to us by the time we spent at Purdue University, working with her husband, Dr. Thomas Bauman. We will miss both. Maria Lúcia and João Baptista.

Bauman’s, I was so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. No words can express my sadness. I taught with Nancy at Tecumseh. Your Mom was a super teacher, counselor and friend!! Nancy was the BEST!! Nancy was a very close friend to me. Your Mom and Dad were such wonderful people. I just know Tom was there to escort Nancy to heaven. I will miss Nancy.

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Whenever we were in Lafayette we would call Tom and he would arrange a get-together with WLHS '57 classmates. After Tom passed we called on Nancy for the same favor. She was always so helpful. We have missed Tom over the years and now we will miss Nancy as well. We are so sad to lose both as they brightened our visits so much. Candie & Rae

i am very sorry to learn of Nancy's death. My first teaching job was at Tecumseh, and Nancy was very kind to me. I knew that I could ask her questions, and trust her. She was an excellent and respected teacher.

Team Bauman, This news rocked me. I am so sorry. I loved your mom. Last time I was in WL she and I went on a "date". Went to dinner and then off to the HS football game. Please take care. I wish I could be there physically on Saturday, as opposed to just spiritually. Love to all. RDP Curtis

Mary Beth, my heart and prayers go to you and your family. I thought your mother was an outstanding lady in every sense of the word. I admired her ability to say the right words in the most difficult of situations.

I am in total shock to learn that Nancy is gone, and I am too emotional to write very much at this time. What I do know is that she and Tom gave Merrill and I support during all the tough times as well as the good ones, and for that I will be forever grateful. I always figured that she and I would grow old (or older) together, and I will miss dinners with her at Westminster and learning about the latest achievements of her wonderful grandchildren. To Bob, Marybeth, John, and Sue, I am so sorry for your loss. She will be greatly missed, but the memories she leaves us with are priceless.

Dear Nancy: You left us so suddenly we could not say goodbye. You told me some time back that your departure would be sudden. You have been a very bright star in our lives as you were to so many others. We have had wonderful and enlightening visits for the past 50 years! You spoke intelligently on most any subject. My admiration for your boundless energy was surpassed only by your compassion for others. Now you are back together with your dear Tom! Our blessings to all the Bauman family. Barbara & J B Bachman.

Beth and I did not know Nancy long, but we found her delightful. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. She was so full of joy!!! Her grandchildren, Gretchen and Grant, are great young people and have been so wonderfully influenced by their grandmother Nancy. Blessings to you all. Nancy lived a great life on earth and will live on in the kingdom of heaven!
