Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Jean Heinz Bachman


I moved to Decorah in 1960 from Wisconsin and completed my senior year at DHS. It was a wonderful but short year. I especially loved being in the band. I returned to Milwaukee, Wisconsin Columbia Hospital School of Nursing and received a diploma in nursing. I married my first husband Steve Smith in 1965. When he went to Vietnam, I returned to Decorah and worked at Decorah hospital in Obstetrics plus a small general patient area at the end of the second floor in the hospital. Steve was an Army helicopter pilot and was killed in action in 1966. This made headlines because he was the first KIA in Decorah. A bit lost for awhile, I then decided to join the Army Nurse Corps and was stationed in Wurzburg German, again working in labor and delivery. I met my second husband in labor and delivery, a very unlikely place! He was duty officer on a night when we lost a baby. We We had to comfort the mom and dad and then notify all military officials and grandparents plus fill out massive military paper work until 2:00 am. We were married in 1969, have two daughters who followed in there daddy's footsteps and are optometrists. We have three wonderful granddaughters and one wonderful grandson. We traveled the world in the Army, Germany, Thailand, San Francisco, Georgia, Alabama. During that time I continued my education at the University of San Francisco (BSN), Medical College of Georgia (MSN) and University of Alabama at Birmingham (PhD in Nursing). After Gary retired from the Army after 22 years, we moved to Chesterfield, MO. A dual career family, Gary taught Optometry and I taught nursing at the University of Missouri, St. Louis. My final position was Director of the PhD Program in nursing. We retired two years ago and wondered why we didn't retire sooner. See you at the reunion in September.
