Jane Siepert Bayer departed this life to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014. Funeral services were held Friday, Jan. 31, in the chapel of Clifton Funeral Home, followed by a graveside service at Fairview Cemetery. Born Nov. 7, 1934, to Mack and Lillian Siepert, she grew up in the Fairview community. A fun loving and confident young lady, she was a good friend to all who knew her. She remained lifelong friends with many of her schoolmates and nursing school classmates. A 1952 graduate of Clifton High School, she attended Baylor and became a technical nurse. She married Joe Bayer in 1959 and was a devoted mother to her two daughters, Stephanie Jan and Leslie Jo. She was a loving daughter, wife, mother, sister, grandmother and great-grandmother. Never to be without a pet, she relished always having a pet, most recently her beloved Shitzu, Gizmo. Traveling was one of her favorite things. She went on several crusies and she appreciated seeing God’s beauty throughout the land and jumped at any chance to take a trip. She enjoyed mapping out trips, making reservations, along any designated route. Also, because she tended toward feeding her dogs “people food,” the standing joke in the family was that her dogs recognized the Kentucky Fried Chicken buildings by their red stripes. Janie Bayer was an excellent cook and her family was fortunate to always enjoy incredibly well cooked food. Besides her unfailing love and support, of all the things that her family will greatly miss, her cooking is at the top of the list. Her greatest joys were times when the whole family was at her house cooking and eating together; whether it be Sunday dinner, a birthday, Thanksgiving or Christmas. She spent her adult life getting back to Fairview, Clifton and the Coon Creek Singin’ at every opportunity because she always knew that that part of the country was where her heart and home were. She always spoke lovingly of her lifelong friends in Bosque County. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Survivors include a sister, Kathleen Hodnett of Fort Worth; children, Stephanie Sims and husband, Jerry of Lubbock, and Leslie Nunn and husband, Bill of Hiram GA; grandchildren, Chandi Taylor and husband, Drew of Wellington TX, Christopher Simms of Lubbock, Caitlin Howard and husband, Chase of Lubbock, and Conner Sims of Lubbock; and great-grandchildren Kenzlea Brooke Taylor and Addilyn Grace Howard. In lieu of flowers, the family requested donations be made to the American Heart Association or American Diabetes Association.
