MELANIE BAUER July 1, 1932 - June 14, 2018 After a valiant battle with a lengthy illness, surrounded by her family, Melanie peacefully left her earthly home in the early hours of June 14, 2018 at Middlechurch Home of Winnipeg. Born July 1, 1932 in Mierzno, Poland, Melanie immigrated to Canada in June 1957, residing in Winnipeg. On October 5, 1957 she married Ernst Bauer and they were blessed with three daughters. She worked as a seamstress in a sewing factory before becoming a full time homemaker and mother. Spending time with family, music, gardening, yoga, shopping and holidays to tropical destinations were some of the things she enjoyed most. She had a great love for all animals, especially cats and dogs, and enjoyed special times with many pets throughout the years. Melanie's faith was extremely important to her and she spent countless hours involved in the church community at Grace Lutheran Church. She was predeceased by her husband Ernst (1996), father Adolf, mother Emma and brother Bruno. She is survived by her daughters, Karin (Brian), Evelyn (Rob), Doreen (Frank); grandchildren, Alyssa (Alex), Kelsey (Devon), Kelly (Evan), James, Stefanie, Michael (Kiana); great-grandchildren, Xander and Kaden. A celebration of Melanie's life will be held at Grace Lutheran Church, 211 Kimberly Avenue at 10:00 am on Wednesday, June 20. A private family interment will take place at Glen Eden Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to Alzheimers Society of Manitoba, 120 Donald St., Winnipeg, MB R3C 4G2 or Winnipeg Humane Society, 45 Hurst Way, Winnipeg, MB R3T 0R3.
