Anna Bauer Schulz peacefully passed away at home during the morning of May 28, 2022, at the age of 96. She was born on September 5, 1925 to Philipp and Luise Wilhelmine Kuhn Bauer in the town of Rohrful-Glasow, Pomerania, Germany. Anna married Jurgen Schulz in Celle, Germany in 1947 and were married for 63 years when he passed away in 2010. They were blessed to have a son, Joerg, while they were living in Celle. Several years later, in 1958, they moved to Utah to join other family members who had relocated after the War. They lived for many years in Salt Lake City Avenues area, Holladay, and finally for the past 27 years in Sandy.
Although Anna struggled with many health concerns throughout her life - Parkinson's disease, two heart attacks by her 40s, colon cancer, and lung and heart problems - she continued living each day to its fullest. Throughout her life, Anna was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and truly loved the members of her ward. She loved spending her time gardening, cooking, entertaining friends and family, and traveling throughout the United States, Hawaii, Europe, Canada and Mexico. However, nothing brought her more joy than spending any time she could with her grandchildren, Kelby and Brieanna and also her great-grandchildren, Alta and Leon.
The past few years have been difficult for Anna's health. She mainly stayed home with her son Joerg and her grandson, Kelby, watching the Utah Jazz play along with endless re-runs of "Everybody Loves Raymond". During the last couple of weeks of Anna's life, her health rapidly declined and was on hospice care. Our family would like to thank Rocky Mountain Hospice for providing her with great care during this difficult time. Anna had a profound impact on the lives of everyone she knew - she will be greatly missed by all of those who were blessed to know her.
Anna is survived by her son, Joerg (York) Detlef Schulz; her grandchildren: Kelby York Schulz, Brieanna Jean Pixton (Lyle); Great-grandchildren: Alta Everly Pixton, Leon Harper Pixton. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Jurgen Hermann-Detlef Schulz (age 88); her brothers and sisters: Rosalie Bauer (age 2), Linda Bauer (age 1), Olga Bauer (age 4), Emma Bauer (age 83), Wanda Bauer (age 93), Philipp Johann Bauer (age 94), Luise Bauer (age 2), Otto Bauer (age 23), Marta Bauer (age79), Frida Bauer Kindt (age 89), Emma Irma Bauer (age 1), Gertrude Bauer (age 1), her parents: Philipp Bauer and Luise Wilhelmine Kuhn Bauer and her beloved dog, Mischief.

To Joerg and family.
I am so sorry to hear of Tante Anna's passing. I loved her so much. What a wonderful woman she was. Spent so many times at her homes in SLC, Holiday and Sandy. The breakfast was always my favorite, coldcuts and various cheeses. Such wonderful memories. Sending prayers for all.of you at this time. Love you.
I'm so grateful you were there for my mom when she lost her own mother. You have always been so kind and happy and leave a great legacy for your family. I'm so excited you are once again with your beloved family members and you finally get to meet your earthly mother. Tell Omi "hi" for me and that I miss her. Until we meet again....
I am so glad I know you Anna Bauer and her mischiev black dog ...she has been a great friend,lovely host with great life store to tell!
I met Anna a few years ago thru my friend Rosie who was friends with her Neighbor Gregg. I am German too. Native German. What an amazing Lady. When my Parents came to visit me, I took them over to meet Anna. I live pretty close. I wished I had gotten to see her one last time before she passed. Rosie & I were sure she'd turn 100! She was always so happy when we came over, always had a smile on her face and had a good sense of humor. My Parents too loved meeting her and getting to speak German with her. So sad to hear about her passing! She was truly an inspiration.
