Baehr Family (Reunites - 28 July 2012)

The descendants of the George and Alma Baehr family held a reunion on July 28, 2012, in the area. The out-of-town crowd gathered in Thorp that morning and visited some of the local sites, including visits, to local cheese factories. Later, all gathered at the Meadowview Country Club for socializing, a meal and pictures. Following everyone was invited to the home of Dave and Gayle Baehr and family for bonfire and fireworks, enjoyed by all.

Many of those attending also stayed for the funeral services of Anita Petrulis Baehr, held on Monday, July 30, at Thorp. Anita was married to Vernon Baehr, one of the six children of George and Alma. She passed away Friday evening July 27th, just having celebrated her 90th birthday on Wednesday.

Those attending from the Anita Baehr Nevala branch were Don and Audrey Nevala of Fond du Lac, and Merlin and Pat Nevala of Menomonie.
