Nancy Jane Heinze was born on April 14, 1934, in the town of Lynn, to Ralph and Selma (nee Reidel) Heinze. She attended grade school in Nasonville and high school in Marshfield. She was united in marriage to Gerald W. Bauer on March 31, 1951, at Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Bakerville. In Nancy’s early years, she was a very devoted bookkeeper to their various careers. She thoroughly enjoyed traveling, playing cards, gardening, and spending time with her family. Other interests were singing in St. John’s choir and volunteering at the former St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Nancy is survived by her children: Bill (Linda) Bauer of Spencer, Mike (Sandy) Bauer of Fond du Lac, Jeri (John) Weger of Elroy, Roger (Carolyn) Bauer of Black River Falls, Mary (Larry) Thompson of Tomah, Betty (Roger) Gorectke of Minocqua, Jim (Colleen) Bauer of Marshfield, and Dan Bauer of Marshfield; 39 grandchildren; 51 great-grandchildren; and two sisters-in-law: Eileen Weber and Joyce Bauer of Marshfield.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband in 2013; a son, Rick, in 1991; a grandson, Brad Bauer in 2002; and a granddaughter, Danielle Gorectke, in 2007.

The family would especially like to thank Ascension Hospice and Aster Assisted Living staff for their service and compassion.
