Pearl Josephine Bauman was born on December 29, 1924 in Ward, SD to parents, Paul Sr. and Josephine (Lamp) Carpenter. She was raised on the family farm near Lake Benton, MN and she graduated from Lake Benton High School. Pearl went to teachers training and then taught country school near Arco and Lake Benton.

On April 19, 1949 Pearl was united in Holy matrimony to Kenneth Bauman at the St. Genevieve Catholic Church in Lake Benton, MN. They were blessed with eight children. In 1951, they relocated to a farm south of Gary, SD near Lake Cochrane. She worked side by side with her husband raising children, chickens and cattle. In 1979, Pearl and Kenneth moved off the farm into Astoria. Kenneth died in 1996 after 47 years of marriage. In 2005, Pearl moved to the Lincoln Lane Villa in Hendricks.

Pearl enjoyed gardening, baking, bird watching and writing poetry. She also enjoyed doing crafts, needlework, jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles and reading. She was known for sending cards for every occasion to all her family and friends. Family gatherings were especially important to Pearl as she loved her time spent with her grandchildren.

She was a faithful member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church where she served on the Altar Society. She was also a member of the Ladies American Legion Auxiliary in Astoria and a member of the Prairie Neighbors Extension Club.

Grateful for having shared Pearl’s life are her eight children: Ron (Sandy) Bauman, Hendricks, Darlene Theisen, Altamont, Myrna (Richard) Shum, Wamego, KS, Darald (Peggy) Bauman, Gary, Marlin Bauman, Gary, Charles (Melanie) Bauman, Lebanon, MO, Joanne (Darryl) Mauseth, Clear Lake, Teresa (Steve) Bourassa, Sioux Falls; 29 grandchildren, 63 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild; siblings: William (Darlene) Carpenter, Lois Zimmer and Ardith Larson all of Lake Benton, Conrad (Connie) Carpenter, College Station, TX and Danny (Judy) Carpenter, LeMars, IA; sisters-in-law: Joyce Carpenter, Gladys Riesgard and Joyce Broderson; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
