Aunt Nancy was one of the happiest people I ever met- she always had a smile, hug and kiss for everyone. Her face lit up whenever she spoke of her family. She will be greatly missed . God has truly gained an angel. Our condolences to all the Baker's and family for the loss of such a wonderful mother, friend, grandma and aunt. Wish we could be there to give you all a hug.
Love, Susie, Big Sal, Little Sal, and Johnny

Nancy was always such a joy to be around. Her kind heart was so special, as was her smile. I first met Nancy in the early days of Crossroads church. Every week her and her family would help us pack away the children's ministry department. Always, she'd be saying "Thank You!" to everyone for serving. Her heart was so huge. She'd always take you by the hand when she spoke her kindness's and as we'd share God's amazing grace. She so often brought joy to my heart. I loved and respected her so much! I praise God today for this dear saint who lived, just to give to others. What a beautiful reflection of Jesus she was. Rest in the arms of your dear Savior today my friend. We will all meet you at the finish line. You were a blessing to us in so many ways. We salute you today!

We have so many good memories of time with Nancy. She was such a dear, sweet person. I remember visiting with her and she would sometimes express concern that she had done enough, she wondered was she good enough? I would remind her of Gods Grace through Christ and, though she knew it, she loved to hear of it again and took comfort. We are praying for you as a family and love you all.
