She grew to womanhood at Coon Rapids, Iowa, and moved with her parents to Spirit Lake about sixteen years ago.

She later was united in marriage to Charles Parr of Coon Rapids to which union was born one child, Novella Lucille, now 15 years of age.

On April 8, 1922, she was reunited in marriage to Charles Parr. And on January 1st. of this last year, a little daughter was born. Mother and child seemed to be getting along niecly until after several days, complications set in, from which the mother's death resulted. The love and sympathy of a host of friends goes out to the bereft husband and little folk and other dear ones in this unexpected sad hour.

Besides her husband and six children, she leaves to mourn her decease, her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Baker, Sr,; four sisters, Mrs. Katheryn Browning, Mrs. Neil Nelson, Mrs. Viola George of Spirit Lake, and Mrs. Mildred Droll of Spencer, Iowa; four brothers, Albert S. of Glenwood City, Wisc,; Edward B., John, Jr., and Wilson O., of Spirit Lake.
