Dorothy Baumer passed peacefully at Havasu Regional Medical Center with
her daughter by her side.

Dorothy was born to John and Mary Brayer in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Being
the baby of nine children on a farm, she was always reminded by her
siblings that she was the only baby to be born with a doctor present.
Her older sister Peggy who was 8-years-old shared the same birthday.
When she asked for a Dolly for her birthday little did she know what she
would be presented with. She married Joe Baumer in 1951. They later
moved from Marshfield to LaCrosse to start their restaurant business.
They were married for 47 years until Joe passed in Feb 1998.

In 1964, they ventured west to California. They were always happy to
entertain in their home. Dorothy was quite the cook and loved hosting
holiday dinners or even just having family and neighbors over for card
games or poker. She also won a few trophies in her bowling league.

They retired to Lake Havasu City in 1989. They enjoyed their new found
friends here too. Dort enjoyed her trips to the BlueWater Casino where
she was very lucky at the video poker machine. Dorothy was a devoted
mother and grammy to her girls. The last two and a half years of her
life were spent at GEMS Assisted Living. She always enjoyed an outing to
Juicy's Restaurant for a Morning Glory!

She is preceded in death by her husband Joe, her parents John and Mary
Brayer and her eight siblings, Mary, Ralph, John, Joe, Ann, Rose, Peggy
and Fran - aka Linda. Another sibling Louis who died shortly after

She is survived by her daughters Barbara Bradley of Indio California,
Kathy Jo Baumer of Lake Havasu City and her granddaughter Erin Bradley
of Indio, California.

Rest in peace Mom! You are loved and missed!
