Obituary for Barbara Louise Baker

Barbara Louise   Baker
It is with great sadness that the family of Barbara Louise Baker, 83, of Lunenburg, announces her passing on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at the Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital, Lunenburg.

Born in Bridgewater, she was the daughter of the late Russell and Emily (Fraser) Hirtle.

Barbara started her working career in Lunenburg at MA Hatt Meat Market, Stedman’s and Eatons/Simpson’s Stores and then went on to work with Irving Oil for 28 years.

A faithful member of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, Lunenburg, Barbara had served over the years on church council and supported the many activities within the church.

She has been a life-time member of the IODE, served on the Martin’s Brook Cemetery Association and the Princess Inlet Property Owners Association.

Her greatest passions were spending time at home with her family, especially her adored grandchildren, and using her hands to create beautiful works of art, as a talented knitter, rug hooking, needle point, ceramics and pottery, or just having a good game of cards with her card club group.

Her love of life, family, friends and the community at large were so important to her.
Barbara’s quiet courage, strength of spirit, creativity and sense of humour will be carried forward by all those that knew and loved her.

Barbara is survived by her loving husband, Gilbert, daughter, Valerie (Paul) Burley, Guelph, Ontario; son, Peter (Paula), Sunny Brook; daughter-in-law, Cynthia Baker (Gary Moore), Mount Uniacke; grandchildren, Samantha, Alexander (Ceilagh MacDonald), Andrew and Stephen Baker, Matthew and Daniel Baker, Joshua (Chelsea Botsford) and Benjamin Burley and many nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her son, the former, Honourable Michael Baker.

Funeral service for Barbara will be held 11:00 a.m. Saturday, February 10, 2018, at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, Lunenburg, Rev. Rick Pryce, officiating. Interment will be in Hillcrest Cemetery, Lunenburg.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church or to the Lunenburg County VON.

Funeral Arrangements are under the direction of the Dana L. Sweeny Funeral Home, 11213 Hwy. # 3, Lunenburg.
