Ona Melissa Baker, lovingly known as "Granny", was born July 31, 1909 in a tent in Throckmorton, Texas. She passed away at the age of 89, july 12, 1999, just a few days short of her 90th birthday.

She is survived by 3 daughters, Maxine Yeatts, Nancy Henard and Sharon Dixon, many grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.
Funeral services were at Galbreath-Pickard Funeral Home in Weatherford, Texas with burial at Thomas Cemetery in Bridgeport, Texas.
Granny was a very sweet and kind woman. She found it difficult to lose so many children before her. Jesus Christ was her Lord and Saviour and she was not afraid to speak of her beliefs.
