Eva Rose Moss Bauer, 97, entered her eternal place of rest Thursday, October 25th 2018.

She was born January 2, 1921, to the late Evie Rena Steen and Lambuth Luther Moss and spent her childhood years growing up in the Griderville community and graduated from Hiseville High School in 1938. She met Bertrand Lewis Bauer, Jr. in 1947 and they were married in 1948 at St Helen Catholic Church in Glasgow. They resided in the same Griderville community in which they met for almost forty years and she continued to live on the family farm until her passing.

She attended and received her teaching certificate from Western Kentucky State Teachers College and later returned to receive her bachelor’s degree. She began her teaching career in Shelby County in 1941, where she taught until 1947.

In total her teaching career spanned thirty-seven and a half years.

Eva Rose was a faithful member of Hiseville United Methodist Church since childhood. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who cared deeply for others and was an influential figure in shaping many young lives in her community.

    I have so many fond memories of her while I was growing up in Griderville and she was always kind to me. She was a true lady in every sense of the word and a blessing to so many. I am so sorry for the loss I know her family is feeling and I send my best wishes and sympathy to all of you. May God comfort you in the void her passing leaves and wrap you in His love. I pray for peace to fill all your hearts. Lewis, thank you for your many kindnesses too and God bless you in Jesus’ Name. Phyllis Ann Western Hunt.

    I didn’t have mrs Bauer in first grade but my sisters did and I used to hear them talk about her and if there ever was a good teacher and a good person she was. I kinda grew up with them all a remember Scott and was his classmate until his passing and never forget that. Lewis I’m praying for comfort with your moms passing, was talking today about how time passes so fast and my parents passing and how much you miss them when they’re gone. We’ll meet them again someday is a comfort, and God bless the family.

    So sorry to read this. Mrs Bauer was much loved by the Barlows and was one of our best and dearest primary school teachers. She taught first grade for Gini Lin in 1980-81 and me 1981-82. God bless you, Mrs. Bauer, and make His face to shine upon you!
