Zona M. Bauer, 75, Mission, KS, passed away Tuesday, May 30, 2006 at Shawnee Mission Medical Center. All services will be private. Zona was born January 21, 1931. She worked the last 15 years of her career at LaHood & Associates where she was Vice-President and supervised all operations. For the last 53 years of her life, the most important career for her though was that of mother. It can be honestly said that she loved her children more than herself. Her husband, Robert M. Bauer, preceded her in death, as well as her parents, William and Mary Hutcherson. Survivors include sons David (Jeannette), Michael, and Patrick (Nancy); grandchildren Alisha, Amber, and Robert; and great-grandson, Nathan. She is also survived by her aunts, Mrs. Ruby Stroup and Mrs. Violet Bliss. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the American Heart Association or the American Lung Association.
