Jennifer Bauer Miller, age 60, of Marshall, WI passed away peacefully on January 7, 2023, surrounded by her family.
Jennifer was born on December 10, 1962 in Beaver Dam, WI to Richard “Ken” and Eileen (Uselmann) Bauer. She was united in marriage to Dean Miller in Beaver Dam on September 13, 1986. Together, they built their first home in Minnesota and welcomed their daughter Kara while Jen worked as a surgical tech at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. After relocating back to Wisconsin, Jen went back to school and became a dental hygienist. She worked as a hygienist at Door Creek Dental for over 20 years and gained a loving group of friends, dubbed the “Hygenies.”
Jen loved to travel, and her sense of adventure took her on many backpacking trips, motorcycle tours, and to shooting competitions throughout the U.S. She also enjoyed trips with her sister to Paris and Rome. Her adrenaline need was filled through many years of competing in cowboy mounted shooting on her three horses she trained and worked her way to a lady’s Level 5. Jen loved mentoring new shooters but especially enjoyed the camaraderie that came with her Mounted Justice family. An avid outdoorswoman, Jen loved movement and anything to feel fresh air on her face including hiking with her dog Ranger, operating her tractor, ATV, motorcycle, riding horses, and most recently her E-Bike. Spending time with her husband, Dean; daughter, Kara; grandson, Kyler; son-in-law, Nick; other family, friends, and being outside in nature filled her soul.
Jennifer is survived by her husband of 36 years, Dean Miller; daughter, Kara (Nick); grandson, Kyler; brother, John; sisters, Jill (Dave) and Joy; her Meadows family; the Hygienes; and other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Janeen; father-in-law, Dave; and other relatives.
