Obituary for Helen Bernice Baker

Helen Bernice Baker
Helen Bernice Baker
January 19th,1919 - June 19th, 2017

Helen was born Helen Bernice Bell to Edwin Stephen Washington Bell and Henrietta Bell (Dorn) on January 19, 1919. She was the youngest of four girls, her sisters being Hazel, Muriel and Mildred. She grew up on a farm on Major Mackenzie Drive just east of Ninth Line of Stouffville. She attended a one room public school locally and drove a horse and buggy or a cutter in the winter to Markham for High School. She married Merlyn Baker on May 19th 1941. They had 4 children, Gertrude, Morgan, John and Peter. She has been blessed with 10 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren to date. She actively followed their activities, accomplishments and academic endeavors. She and Merlyn farmed on Hwy 48 north of Ringwood for 36 years, then moved to a house near Goodwood, where they lived in retirement from farming for 15 years. They then relocated to an apartment in Stouffville in 1992. Merlyn died in 1994 and Helen continued in the apartment until 2009 when she moved to a care facility. They worshipped, served and fellowshipped at Baker Hill Baptist Church for many decades. Helen was a quiet, modest and humble lady with a loving and giving heart. She adapted to many changes through the years and was an example of a person content under any circumstances in which she found herself.

She will be missed by a grateful family.
