Dr. Bert Bauman
On November 18, 2008, our beloved Dr. & Rev. Wilbert G. Bauman, has gone home to see the Father, at the young age of 83. He waits with his son, Timothy (1953-1972), from heaven above, to some day reunite with his loved ones still living here on earth, who are his wife, Arlene (Morrill) Bauman of 62 years, and his children, Rebecca Ersfeld (Keith), Cynthia Jedlicki (Rudolph) and Corey Bauman (Gina). Dr. Bauman also has 11 grandchildren, Jody Myers (Randolph), Kerri Branson (Scott), James Hoskins, Sarah Samaraka (Troy), Nicole Johnson (Timothy), Jennifer Spies, Jesse Jedlicki (Charlene), Deanna Samaraka (Randolph), Toby Jedlicki, Brenda Jedlicki, Cassandra Bauman and 11 great-grandchildren that treasured him, and always will. One paragraph cannot give such a man justice to explain what he has contributed to our lives and so many others. His philanthropic lifestyle touched so many people that this world is sure to be affected without his physical existence; however, his impact will be held forever in our hearts. In WWII, he served as a Navy Sea Bee in the South Pacific. After the war, he and his wife, moved to Minneapolis where he became a commercial artist. At that crucial time, they were born from above and began to follow the Lord Jesus Christ. He was very active in the Lay Ministry and a few years later, gave up his career and stepped out in faith to full time ministry, giving up the little savings they had according to the Lord’s promise in Luke 12:33-34. “Sell your possessions and give to charity; make yourselves purses which do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near, nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” The result was a Charismatic Church with hundreds of attendees. Dr. Bert was directly instrumental in starting three other churches, which branched into more houses of worship. In addition to his Art School degree, Dr. Bert received his Doctorate in Philosophy from The Minnesota Graduate School of Theology. This phenomenal man has taught us that through Jesus Christ, we know someday we will be laughing with him again. Our Sufferings here on earth are temporary, we will persevere and live our lives to serve and love unconditionally. That is what he believed, and therefore, so do we. Please join us for his memorial service on Saturday, November 22, at 1p.m., at First Memorial Funeral Chapel, 7835 Brooklyn Blvd., Brooklyn Park, MN.
