POCATELLO - DeVerl Bauman, 67, died November 17, 2011, at his home in Pocatello
with his loving wife at his side.
DeVerl was born May 4, 1944, in Montpelier, Idaho, to Woodruff Willard Bauman and
Gwendolyn Kathryn Hirschi Bauman, of Geneva, Idaho. DeVerl was raised on a large ranch in
Geneva, where he helped his father raise sheep and cattle, and where hay and grain were
also grown and harvested. His early years were busy and fulfilling. He was taught early in
life that hard work was the best thing in a man's life.
DeVerl married his high school sweetheart, Susan Mettea Aland, July 26, 1965, in the
Logan, Utah, LDS Temple. They went on to enjoy 46 years together.
After graduating from Idaho State University Technical School in 1965, DeVerl worked as
a printer for the Montpelier News Examiner, Star Valley Independent, Rexburg Standard and
Journal and Primbs Printing. DeVerl was instrumental in developing the concept of putting
pictures on checks and other forms. He also served as an instructor in the Graphic Arts
Department of the Idaho State University Technical School. Toward the end of his career,
DeVerl was a whole body and Lung Counting Technician Specialist at the INEL.
DeVerl retired in 2006 when he left the INEL to join Susan for what was to be a happy
time for both of them.
DeVerl was a happy, "go lucky" guy. He loved the great outdoors, including
hunting, fishing and horseback riding. He also enjoyed cooking and was an avid sports fan.
He enjoyed cheering for his beloved BYU Cougars and ISU Bengals.
DeVerl is survived by his wife, Susan, his children Anita of American Fork, Utah, Eric
(Melinda) of Twin Falls, Idaho, Chandra Wells (Chad) of Preston, Idaho, and Shane (Tara)
of Riverton, Utah. He is also survived by 12 grandchildren, who will miss him dearly, and
his sister JoAnn Davis (Lynn) of St. George, Utah. He was preceded in death by his
parents, his sister Heidi and brothers De Wayne and Bruce.
Funeral services for DeVerl will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, November 22, 2011, at the
Highland LDS Chapel, 2300 Butte (corner of Butte & Hiskey), with Bishop Rdale Price
conducting. A viewing will be held from 6-8 p.m., Monday, November 21, 2011, at Wilks
Funeral Home, 211 W. Chubbuck Road, and one hour prior to the services at the church on
