Death of Mrs. D. S. Baker
After many months of patient suffering, death at last relieved Mrs. D. S. Baker of her earthly troubles, her spirit taking its flight on the night of December 12, 1905.
Mrs. Victoria Bohler Baker was born near St. Joseph, Missouri, on March 6, 1866, and was therefore aged 39 years, 8 months and 6 days. at the time of her demise.
When still a child, she came to Colusa county, where she has ever since made her home, and where she was beloved by all who knew her.
Mrs. Baker had been a sufferer for years from cancer and has been confined to her bed since last May. All that loving relatives and friends could do to allay her suffering was of no avail and death alone was her only relief. The fortitude and patience with which she bore the increasing pain was characteristic of the upright and religious life which she lived, believing always that "God's will, not mine, be done" was the lesson that all should learn while on this earth.
Mrs. Baker was kind and generous to a fault, was ever ready to lend a helping hand when called upon and she never faultered when duty showed her the way. Time or person was not the question with her and her many acts of kindness will be greatly missed by those to whom she ministered. She was a devout member of the Catholic church and the last sad rites of this world will be said over her body in the house of worship she loved so well.
Victoria Bohler was married 18 years ago to David S. Baker, and was always a loving and devoted wife. She was the daughter of the late Charles Bohler and leaves to mourn her loss her husband, two sisters, Mrs. Clara Gilmore and Mrs. H. D. Harlis of Sacramento, and one brother, John C. Bohler, of Williams.
The funeral will take place from the Catholic church Friday morning, at 9 o'clock. The family has the profound sympathy of the community in their bereavement.
Her sufferings were great, and while she will be missed, none wish her back to this world of sorrow and pain, for though death be poor, it ends a mortal woe.
"Thy day without a cloud hath passed,
And thou wert lovely to the last,
Extinguish'd, not decay'd!
As stars that shoot along the sky
Shine brighter when they fall from high,
And thou are dead."
David Sylvester Baker (1858 - 1926)*
