LulaJean “Lu” Bausch, 80, of Springfield, met her precious Savior face to face on April 11, 2018 at 2:50 am. She was born July 23, 1937 in St. Louis, MO to Leonard and Genevieve Hoffman Higgins. She married David A. Bausch on November 17, 1956 and he preceded her in death on June 11, 2013. She was also preceded in death by her parents and brother, Leonard.
Surviving are her beloved children; one son, David A.

LulaJean attended West Side Christian Church. Every aspect of Lu’s life was dedicated to the love and care of her husband, parents, children, grandchildren, great-granddaughter, and extended family and friends. The most important thing in her life was Jesus Christ her Savior. She loved serving Him in every way possible at all churches she has attended.
The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to Dr. Nora MacZura, Jodi Bangert, PA-C and staff for their true compassion walking her through a six year hard fought battle. Thank you to Memorial Hospice Care for providing her comfort.
