Mary Frederika Bausman-Watkins

February 4, 1963 — May 8, 2022

St. Paul

Bausman-Watkins, Mary Frederika (Mary-Fred)

Age 59, of St. Paul, passed away on May 8, 2022, after living bravely and authentically through seven years of cancer.

Preceded in death by her parents, John and Evelyn; and sister, Jane.

She is survived by her loving husband, Peter; children, Andrew, Christopher, and Paul; and brothers, Charlie and John.

Mary-Fred loved her life: her family, Central High School students and colleagues, church community, pilgrimages, life-long friendships, creating Ukrainian Easter eggs and random acts of beauty.  Endlessly curious, she loved traveling, the arts, and, as with many life-long learners, was rarely without a book arms distance.

An accomplished German language teacher and educational leader, she was a passionate voice for justice and anti-racism work in her community and a founding co-director of the Twin Cities German Immersion School.

A memorial service for Mary-Fred will be held at 3PM, on Saturday, June 4, 2022, at St. Clement’s Episcopal Church (901 Portland Ave., St. Paul). Social hour to follow.

Memorials preferred and may be made in Mary-Fred’s memory to Twin Cities German Immersion School and St. Clement’s Episcopal Church.
