Bahr, Maxine Dolan; fortified with the sacraments of Holy Mother Church, died Monday, September 17, 2007. Beloved wife of the late Francis Joseph Bahr; dearest mother of Anthony Bahr (Kathy Scherf), John (Vicki) Bahr, Susan Pingleton, and Michael (Christine) Bahr; loving grandmother of Christopher (Maureen) Bahr, Amy (Dave) Katz, Adam (Debby) Bahr, Julie (Andrew) Hume, Katherine (Tim) Moran, Rebecca Bahr, Jim Pingleton, and Justin, Joseph, Emily, and Ryan Bahr; cherished great-grandmother of Zach, Madison, David, Makena, Colin, Kaitlyn, and Mary Grace; dear sister-in-law, aunt, cousin, and friend. She has many family members in Dallas, TX, and Festus, MO. Maxine was born on January 9, 1921, in St. Louis. Her father, John Dolan, preceded her in death when she was just five. Her mother, Blanche Dolan, then moved with Maxine and her sister, Patricia, and her brother, John, to Dallas, TX. Maxine was raised in Dallas and possessed a strong affinity with the South throughout her life. She especially enjoyed yearly trips to Dallas to visit her Mother, whom she dearly loved and greatly admired. At the end of World War II, Maxine met Chief Petty Officer Francis Bahr, and they were married on May 17, 1947. Maxine and Francis relocated to St. Louis, where they spent their lives working and raising their family. Maxine worked as parish secretary at Holy Ghost Church, Berkeley, MO, for 34 years. Maxine lived with heart disease for 29 years, surviving two heart attacks and bypass surgery. Impatient with the limitations heart diseased imposed, Maxine chose to live her life fully, with courage and dignity. Always grateful to her doctors, Maxine donated her body to St. Louis University Medical School for research. Services: A Mass of Remembrance will be celebrated on Saturday, September 22, 10 a.m., at St. Sabina Church in Florissant. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her name to the American Heart Association.
