JANESVILLE/BELOIT— Blanche I. Baker, 87, of Janesville and formerly of Beloit, WI, died on Tuesday morning, Aug. 3, 2004, at Mercy Hospital. She was born in Buffalo County, near Mondovi, WI, on Dec. 21, 1916, daughter of the late Edward and Theresa (Senn) Moy. Blanche graduated salutatorian from Mondovi High School, class of 1933, and later graduated from UW Stout in 1943 with a BS degree in Home Economics and Science. Blanche continued her education and received her Master's Degree in Education in 1960. In 1979 she moved to Janesville from Beloit, where she lived for many years. Blanche was a member of Trinity Episcopal Church, where she was active in the Altar Guild and SOS group. She married Wilber C. Baker on Jan. 24, 1947, in Mt.
