Bauermeister,Jeannette Beloved wife of Paul for sixty years; beloved mother of Michael, Jo and Ben; beloved mother-in-law of Gloria, Rebecca and Erica; beloved grandmother of Ben, Caitlin, Zac and Rylan; beloved sister of Doris Wolff and David; loving daughter of Mike and Edna Voertman; passed into Bliss early in the morning of All Saints Day, November 2, 2014. Jeannette was born to be a Pastor, but the Lutheran Church of which she was a member did not ordain women, so she became a parochial school teacher for a number of years. Then she was invited to become an administrator at Concordia Seminary. She was instrumental in the founding of Christ Seminary Seminex, taking care of all of the details that no one else even thought of in St. Louis and at the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago. In 1984, she finally became an ordained pastor. When Seminex ended, she became an Area Representative of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America Foundation, covering Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas and Oklahoma. After eleven years of service, she retired to enjoy life with her husband and children and grandchildren, always making the places she lived in more beautiful. Services: A memorial service celebrating Jeannette's life will be held on December 6 at 1:00 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, 14088 Clayton Road, in Chesterfield, followed by a reception. Bauer,CaptainCarlT. (USN-Ret) Captain Carl T. Bauer (USN-Ret), a prominent St. Louis corporate lawyer and a naval aviator who was honored for heroism in the Vietnam War, died on Thursday, October 30 at St. Luke’s Hospital after a short illness. He was 68. A partner in Armstrong Teasdale’s International Practice Group since 2009, Mr. Bauer focused on corporate, international trade and antitrust law. Prior positions included Vice President, Associate General Counsel and Assistant Secretary at Emerson Electric Company from 1993-2009, where he was lead counsel for more than 50 successful domestic and international acquisitions and responsible for all international legal affairs in Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, Canada and Africa. While at Emerson, he created the International Trade Compliance Group where he developed specific compliance programs and training on import and export controls, anti-boycott regulations, and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and anticorruption regulations worldwide. Carl served as Assistant General Counsel at Energizer from 19881990, and as corporate attorney at Ralston Purina from 1981-1990. He was Legal Counsel to the St. Louis Blues Hockey Club from 1981-1983, when Ralston Purina owned the team, and Alternate Governor to the National Hockey League. Prior to and during his legal career, Carl Bauer served his country with distinction as a naval aviator (1968-1993). Among his multiple air medals, he earned a Distinguished Flying Cross for heroism in Vietnam while participating in aerial flight as a pilot of jet aircraft attached to Attack Squadron Thirty-Seven embarked in USS Saratoga (CV-60). On July 2, 1972, then-Lieutenant Bauer was an Element Leader in a coordinated, thirty-four plane air wing minefield replenishment mission in a heavily defended harbor in Southeast Asia. Through inclement weather, he led his section into a high-threat environment on a pre- strike reconnaissance flight to determine whether strike conditions were adequate for the mining operation. During the mission, he was required to expose his section for an extended period of time during which he successfully evaded several surface-to-air missiles while aggressively attacking the threatening sites with anti-radiation weapons. He then rejoined the group to provide guided surface-to-air missile suppression during the attack. As a result of his efforts, the mission was completed without loss or damage to a single aircraft and no loss of American lives. Carl was a graduate of Colgate University (Class of 1967) and received his Juris Doctorate from Washington University in St. Louis in 1980. He was an active board member at the USO of Missouri and the Algonquin Golf Club.€€ Carl Bauer was preceded in death by his father, Edmond S. Bauer (1982), his mother, Jean Louise Bauer Jones (2013) and stepfather, Otha Clyde Jones (2001).
