Marilyn Bauman

March 9, 1937 ~ November 22, 2021 (age 84)


“Remember to tell your nearest and dearest how much they mean to you.”  Marilyn Bauman, 84, of Wausau, lived by these words.

Marilyn sadly passed away on November 22, 2021, after an ongoing struggle with Alzheimer’s. She was born to Albert and Pearl Bradford on March 9, 1937, in Marshfield, Wisconsin.

As a young lady, she met her future husband, Gordon Bauman while hanging out with friends at a local establishment. They were married at Trinity Lutheran Church in Wausau on May 9, 1959, and celebrated 62 years of marriage before her passing.

Marilyn enjoyed a long, satisfying career with Wausau Insurance Company. Her happiest moments were spent making memories with her family and friends, sometimes laughing until they cried. She had a sharp sense of humor as well as a fondness for all things related to words and language. Marilyn’s favorite pastimes included reading, bowling, sewing, and playing computer and card games.

Marilyn’s endeared family includes her husband, children, grandchildren, and other loved ones.

Private services will be held for Marilyn.
