Shirley Bauman gently passed away January 19, 2022. She spent her last few days at Ames Family Hospice Home in Westlake, OH. All of her doctors, nurses and caregivers were loving and sensitive to her needs every moment. The same is true for everyone at The Cleveland Clinic, Avon, Lakeside Assisted Living in Rocky River and Danbury Senior Living in Broadview Heights. So many folks showed their kindness to her in her last days. We are so grateful to all of them for helping her to pass so peacefully and gracefully.
