My Grandfather simply called her Mae but to me she was: Grandma and I can remember her like it was yesterday.

She almost always had an apron on and whenever anyone came to the house there was always food to be given to guests such as apple pie, fresh bread and many other things that even children loved and looked forward to.

She was a pretty quiet women but then with my Grandpa, I can understand why. She loved her 7 kids and many grandchildren and I can remember when they lived deep deep in the woods in Misouri and there were times back then a car could not even get back to their house.

I remember looking for eggs one day that their many chickens layed in some of the strangest places and as a 6 year old I lifted an egg crate and under it were no eggs but there was a copperhead snake and yep, it bit me but my other grandfather (Grandpa Shepard) was there that day also
and he saw it happen. I remember he grabbed the snake by the tail, whipped it really fast and its head snapped and it was dead then he cut where I got bit and sucked the venom out. My ankle swelled a bit but I obviously survived.

My Grandma Baker was a kind women to me and for me as a child, that was all that counted.

She Married my Grandfather, Samuel Meriman Baker 02/Sep/1917 at Oregon Co., MO.

Member of Thayer Free Will Baptist Church.
