Jean was a 1950 graduate of Calvert High School and a 1954 graduate of Heidelberg College where she received a BA in Communications.  She was a member of both Calvert High School and Heidelberg’s marching bands and music was for Jean, a lifelong source of inspiration.  She played the trumpet and sang alongside her sister Pat in her father’s, Bernie Bauer’s All Girl Orchestra of the 1940’s. She remembered fondly, family gatherings with the Bauer clan in Green Springs which were always filled with music and laughter.  Jean worked as a legal secretary for her husband, Arthur, she also taught speech at Calvert High School and was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church.

All Saints Day is a fitting day for Jean to die, the gift of life she gave is a hallmark of her character as she was first and foremost a giver.
