Barbara Ellen Bauman Obituary
BARBARA ELLEN BAUMAN Barbara Ellen "Barbie" Bauman passed from this life on the morning of December 14th, 2016 at Riverside's Community Hospital. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, May 28th, 1943 to Howard and Margaret Kirk, Barbie graduated from San Bernardino's Pacific High School in 1961 and worked for Allstate Insurance Company where she was first introduced to Ronnie Bauman - her beloved partner in life who she married in 1969. Apart from child-raising and later multi-tasking at the Bauman family business, Barbie excelled artistically at ceramics and easel painting. Barbie was a generous giver - particularly of love. She loved animals more than most, but she loved people most of all. With abounding motherly love, she was "Mom", even to kids other than her own. Barbie's parents Howard and Margaret Kirk; brother Bill Kirk and first-born daughter Janet Barnes have preceded her in passing. Barbie is survived by her husband Ronnie Bauman and sister Suzette Willhite. She is also survived by her daughter Sherri Barnes, bonus-children Rodney and Diana Bauman who've also called her "Mom", granddaughter Tawny Cothran, grandson Rory Bauman and six-year-old great granddaughter Ruby Cothran, who've all called her "Grandma Barbie." Funeral arrangements have been made through Acheson and Graham Garden of Prayer. Services for Barbie will be held on Saturday, January 7th, 2017 at 10:00 AM, with reception to follow at Canyon Crest Country Club.
