Most importantly, she is survived by the many children she led to Christ through her ministry. She was a pastor's wife. A job she cherished. She helped her husband through evangelism. They held many revivals together. She was a Sunday school teacher, children's church leader, Missionette leader, a Women's Ministries leader, a song leader, and a church camp leader. The most fun a child could have was attending Vacation Bible School with the Bakers. They loved children and they loved it when a child accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
