She was an amazing Mother, Grandmother, and friend, and will forever be remembered for her fun loving, caring, compassionate, and intelligent nature.

Mrs. Baierl moved to Lexington, SC with her family in 1961 and fell in love with the small-town atmosphere and friendly people. She was a member of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church.
She was a Christian woman who enjoyed entertaining family and friends. Affectionately known as “Grandma,” she especially cherished the special relationship she had with her family and friends.

She will be dearly missed by her husband, Robert Baierl of Lexington; sons, Paul Gregory Baierl (Sherry) of TN, Alan Joseph Baierl (Izzy Martinez-Aguilar) of Columbia; and her daughters, Sharon Baierl Riles (DuWayne) of West Columbia, and Julie Baierl Stanfield (Donald) of Lexington; grandsons, Joshua Baierl (Kaylee) of GA, Joseph Baierl of Charleston, Nicholas Baierl of Lexington; and granddaughters, Serah Thompson (Chandler) of Lexington, Kristen Riles of West Columbia, and Rachel Baierl of TN.
