Anna Mae "Pinky" Baldwin passed away peacefully in her sleep at 6:30 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 29, 2012. She was the seventh child of Edward and Annie Zugelder, born on Oct. 22, 1926, in Greentown. She was the last surviving child in a family of eight children. Pinky married Charles J. Baldwin in April 1946, and they were happily married for nearly 42 years when he died in April 1988.
Pinky graduated from Kokomo High School in 1945 and worked in the accounting department of Cabot Corp. (previously Haynes Stellite) until she retired in December 1985.
Pinky was very active in Main Street United Methodist Church and was particularly fond of helping with the annual bazaar "attic treasures" and noodle making. She was always trying to help someone or at least to incite a laugh or a giggle. Pinky loved being a clown and clowned around most of her life before and after joining the clown ministry at Main Street United Methodist Church. She spread joy among her friends, family, caregivers and others that she met along her journey through her wonderful life. Pinky was a fun loving, peaceful, caring and generous person.
Pinky valued her family most of anything in her life. She gave her time and energy and anything else she could manage whenever she saw a need or whenever she was asked, whether it was to help someone in her family of origin or her family of friends.
Pinky's children Gail Baldwin (Bruce Jessen), Joe Baldwin (Carrie Kinsey) and Karen Cushman (David Powell); her grandson, Matt Cushman; great-grandson, Adam Cushman; and many nieces and nephews survive her. Her family and friends will sorely miss her gentle nature, sweet giggle and wonderful wit.
Pinky was preceded in death by her husband; her grandson, Gabriel; her parents; her siblings, William Henry Zugelder, Ida Marguerite Pettay, Helen Schawitsch, Catherine Smith, Dorothy Pettay, Esther Louise Baldwin and Fines Zugelder.
Services to remember and honor Pinky are 11 a.m. Thursday at Main Street United Methodist Church, 830 S. Main St., Kokomo, with a visitation beginning at 10:30 a.m. Inurnment will be in Sunset Memory Garden
