Marius Joseph Baumert was born on March 21, 1933, on the family farm near Aloys, NE to Frank and Katherine (Schrage) Baumert. Growing up on the farm, he attended St. Aloysius Catholic School, where he completed his education up to the 8th grade. He earned his high school diploma many years later as an adult. Even from a young age, Marius exhibited a strong work ethic and a passion for helping others.

In his early years, Marius taught himself the art of welding and used his skills to assist neighbors. In 1953, he enlisted in the United States Army, serving his country with honor and dedication. During his service, Marius was stationed in California, Germany, and France, and he was honorably discharged in 1955. On September 17, 1957, Marius married Mary Miller at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Dodge. The couple farmed on the Baumert home place near Aloys. Marius continued farming until his retirement at the remarkable age of 88.

Marius’s commitment to his community extended beyond the farm. For 25 years, he served as a school bus driver for Pebble Valley School and West Point Public School. His proficiency in woodworking and furniture restoration was well-known, showcasing his talents and craftsmanship.

A man of deep faith, Marius was a lifelong member of St. Aloysius Catholic Church. His devotion to the church was further exemplified by his 71 years as a member of the church choir. Additionally, Marius was a proud member of the Cuming Choraliers for decades, sharing his love for music with the community. Marius enjoyed good health and this allowed him to donate many gallons of blood at the local blood mobile over the course of 65 years. Marius was also a member of American Legion Post #70.
