Doris Elizabeth Baumer, 92, of Paducah, passed away on Friday, January 28, 2022 at Baptist Health Paducah.
Mrs. Baumer was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on December 31, 1929 to the late Albert Alvin Zoller and Helen Doris Francis Burkart Zoller. She was a longtime member of St. Paul Lutheran Church where she was a member of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, Ruth Circle, Social Club and choir. She was a Precinct Election Officer for the Concord polling place for 20 years and an active member of the McCracken County Extension Homemaker Association for 50 years. Doris was very crafty, she enjoyed sewing and taught crocheting out of her home and for 25 years she would enter as many items that she could make in one year into the McCracken County Fair. There was a Paducah Sun article about it years ago about the crazy amount of entries each year. She also loved to bake and many enjoyed her homemade cinnamon rolls over the years.
Doris is survived by four sons, William Frank Baumer, Jr., of Paducah, David Scott Baumer and wife Tricia of Paducah, Robert Allan Baumer and wife Jennifer of Memphis, Tennessee and Mark Andrew Baumer and wife Jennifer of Louisville; seven grandchildren, Erin Baumer Hudson, Michael Baumer, Alan Baumer, Logan Baumer, Landon Baumer, Josiah Baumer, and Gavin Baumer; two great-grandchildren, Savannah Baumer and Lincoln Baumer.
Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, William Frank Baumer Sr.
