Walnut Township lost one of its beloved and exemplary women at 8:30 Thursday morning in the passing of Mrs. Sarah Sallie Elizabeth Baker, wife of Joseph Baker. She had been ill about two weeks, having suffered a stroke of paralysis on Easter and there was little hope of a recovery thereafter. Mrs. Baker was the daughter of Lewis and Mary E. Straight who survives her. She was born and reared in the community of Flag Springs where she died and was esteemed by all who knew her as a kind and devoted wife and mother and a considerate and generous neighbor. She was 61 years old on Nov. 27, last. She is survived by her husband who is remembered as a teacher in the schools of Lawrence and Gallia for many years and by these seven children; Mrs. (Chloe) Will Corbin of Springfield Ohio; Mrs. (Mary Lona)Elmer Mossbarger and Mrs.(Helen) William Evans of Gallia; Mrs.(Lora Tressie) Evan Green of Gage; John, Ernest, and Edward Baker all of Waterloo.
