Angeline Marie Baker
October 28, 1930 ‒ December 16, 2016
MANSFIELD: Marie Baker’s balanced holiday diet was a Christmas cookie in each hand! She filled everyone’s hands. She filled plates and she filled hearts with the little taste of comfort – a personal bite-size taste of sweet love. Each date-filled, iced cut-out, and peanut butter blossom cookie was an expression of the joy in her heart – joy she shared with those around her.
Baking is behind her now, as Marie passed into the Lord’s presence Friday evening, December 16, 2016 from OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital. She was 86.
Born Angeline Marie Sylvia Scott October 28, 1930 to parents Harry & Cecelia (Pesano) Scott in Mansfield, she was graduated from St. Peter’s High School. On December 19, 1949, she married Frank E. Baker and they shared 60 wonderful years of marriage until he passed away in 2008. They are now together again.
Marie took pride in creating a loving home for her husband and children. She was also a wonderful cook—famous for her fabulous homemade noodles—and every pie she made was delicious, but especially her homemade pumpkin and blueberry pies.
She was a faithful member of Community Bible Church in Mansfield, where she sang in the choir and formerly served as choir secretary.
She enjoyed creating porcelain dolls, painting figurines and anything Precious Moments. Marie was in the Word daily, and faithfully read The Daily Bread, and leaves her family a rich legacy of Christian faith.
She is survived by three children and their spouses: Marsha & Fritz Iceman of Ontario, Frank D. & Cathy Baker of Lexington, and Connie & Dale Rader of Mansfield; ten grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law Mary Wynn and Helen Shoemaker both of Mansfield; along with numerous extended family members and friends.
In addition to her loving husband and parents, she was preceded in death by a daughter and son-in-law Darlene & Tom Cox.
