Birth: Oct. 7, 1907
Kings County (Brooklyn)
New York, USA
Death: Apr. 10, 2002
Far Rockaway
Queens County
New York, USA

Daughter of Henry C. and Anna (Zitzmann)Bauer of Queens, NY, Lydia was the eldest of two children and the "guardian" to little brother, Henry, Jr.

Lydia never married, rather worked her entire life and spent time with family and friends. As I began my journey researching the Bauer Family, I came across Lydia's death certificate and anxiously started the tedious research of tracking down any living relatives she may have. I was able to find her CPA who had known both she and her brother; he said his father had done her parent's taxes as well so there was a very long history with the family in general. He shared with me Lydia's long life story and how she had become a part of his own family, attending many holiday dinners at his home and how she adored his children, watching them grow. She relished time spent with them but eventually became too old to leave her own apartment, choosing to spent her later years with her long-time caregiver who doted on her.

He mentioned, as we ended our call, that she often wondered if there were any living relatives left, and how she wished she had gotten the chance to know them. Not that she regretted any of the life that she lived, nor would she change a minute of what she had been given. She just "wondered." She died not knowing of all of the family she did have a mere a hour away, and the one person - me - who was especially anxious to know more about the Bauer Family and also wondered "who was out there."

So, for you, Cousin Lydia, until we meet again, I will continue the search in your memory and when we do meet, I will be the one lugging the huge scrapbook full of photos and memories saved just for you.

Love, Barbie
