Dr. Baker was a beloved professor of mine while at the Ville 80-84. She also was a prayer warrior for both me and my son when he was born in 2004. She was always happy to see me on my occasional visits with my Aunt Toi to her home. She was a wonderful friend, and I will miss her always. My heart goes out to her entire family especially Nancy and Drew who were college friends. Hugs and prayers for comfort.

Sue Baker was a mentor, confidant, advisor, and role model for me during the 13 years I was at Cedarville University. She had a big influence on me professionally, personally, and spiritually and I am so thankful for her life.

Sue’s life was an example of love, perseverance, and consistency through difficult times and without wavering. She put the needs of others first. She is one of the most unselfish people I’ve ever known.

I’m so very sad that she is gone so soon. I’m so thankful she was my friend.
