Marlene Julia Bauer was born December 19, 1952 in Sterling, Illinois, a daughter of Phillip and Mildred (Fitzpatrick) Bauer. She proudly worked in the Credit Department at Von Maur for 22 years where she had more friends than co-workers. Molly enjoyed gardening, crafting, walks with her pets, cooking, and watching her grandchildren grow. She also loved shopping and traveling the United States with her best friends and family members. Sitting still while Molly was around was not an option; a trait she passed on to her children.
Those left to honor her memory include her children: Matthew Osterhaus, Davenport; Nicholas (Danielle) Osterhaus, Milan, Illinois; Julia (Mike) Jones, Davenport; and Andrew (Casey) Osterhaus, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa; 13 grandchildren; siblings: Gary (Marilyn) Bauer, Sterling, Illinois; Mark (Barbara) Bauer, Geneseo; MaryBeth (Richard) Dombroski, Morrison and Patricia (Wilbert) Vetch, Eau Claire, Wisconsin. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Phillip Bauer, Jr.
