Carolyn Wilson Baer passed away on Monday, October 22, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas at the age of 80. Carolyn, also known as, “Pud’n,” was born in Elgin, Texas on February 8, 1938. She grew up in Austin, Texas, which she always thought of as Home. Carolyn graduated from Travis High School and the University of Texas, where she earned a degree in Fashion Merchandising.

Carolyn married Charles E. “Charlie” Baer, Jr. and together they have two children, Trey Baer and Molly Baer Holub.

Carolyn moved with her family to Galveston, Texas in 1979, where she worked as an administrator at Trinity Episcopal School for 18 years. In 1997, Carolyn and Charlie retired to a home they built in the Texas Hill County, where she lived out her life as a ferocious fan of Texas Longhorn football, a volunteer at the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture and an amazing wife, mom and grandmother.

She is predeceased by her parents: Frances Ford Wilson and Dennis Dean Wilson, and brother: Curtis Dean Wilson.

Survivors include her husband of 54 years: Charlie “Boo” Baer of Spring Branch; children: Trey Baer of Huntsville and Molly Holub and husband Karl of Houston, grandchildren: Zan Baer, Zachary Baer, Zoey Baer, Chanse Holub, Caroline Holub and Charlie Holub; sister: Jonnye Wilson Dickard and husband Paul of Colorado Springs, niece: Denise Wilson Oliver (Jeff), nephews: David Dickard (Marja) and Brian Dickard (Trivian), along with grand-nieces and nephews and many cousins.

A Graveside Service, for the family, will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2018 at the San Geronimo Cemetery, with a Memorial Service and reception to follow at the St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church (201 E. Nolte St., Seguin, TX 78155) at 11:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture (1370 Churchill Dr., New Braunfels, TX 78130).

    Charlie and family, I just learned about Carolyn. I was so lucky that she volunteered at the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture. She was so bright and interested in the collection that guests who toured with her routinely complimented her work. She's a shining star and I miss her tremendously.

    Carolyn and I were best friends in Fulmore Jr. High School and Wm. B. Travis High School, graduating together in 1956. She was a dear friend and she, Nancy Hill Benner, Pat Volz and I were best friends. We all reconnected back in the summer through the wonders of social media. One luncheon was held and another one was in the works. I have sweet, precious memories of Carolyn. Rest in Peace Dear One

    We have so many fond memories of sweet Carolyn, especially in her roll as Mom to Molly and then in her roll as an administrator at Trinity School in Galveston. Those were exciting busy days and Carolyn always seemed so kind and calm through all the chaos. Heartfelt sympathies.
