Our very solemn condolences for your loss. Mrs. Baker will truly be fondly remembered and missed. She will always and forever be fondly thought of as one of the original founders of the Wharton Avenue family of neighbors. I personally will always keep her in my thoughts as a family friend and someone who even included me, the youngest in my family, not of the same age as her own children, yet still a part of the “home pack” of children.
