Mrs. Baker was the daughter of the late Henry Person Barefoot and Myrtle Thompson Barefoot. Her career as a teacher-guidance counselor, mainly in Tabor City Schools, spanned 38 years. Having grown up on her family homestead farm in Hallsboro, she carried high values and standards, dedicating herself to family, church, community and profession. As a seventh-grade teacher and later a high school guidance counselor in Tabor City, she helped form and direct many young lives. Many of her former students have gone on to distinguish themselves in vast areas of service and leadership. She taught home economics during the early days of her educational career in Apex and Hallsboro. She also served as a Dietician for the State of North Carolina while living in Apex and at Columbus County Hospital after returning to Hallsboro. She faithfully served Tabor City Baptist Church as a longtime Sunday School teacher and in several other capacities. She was a graduate of Hallsboro High School and N.C. Woman's College in Greensboro (now UNC-Greensboro). She earned her masters degree from East Carolina University. Iris and Bryant Baker were married for 58 years. They met in his native Apex, shortly after his return from military service in World War II. Mrs. Baker died in Loris Community Hospital at age 79.
