Ms. Baer - The wonderful women who loved everyone. My friend Patty - to let you know I care.
I'll Always remember Ellen's sweet smile and the three years we traveled together to Monterey each month, as members of the Diocesan Educational Committee representing St. William's
Catholic Church. I became familiar with her kind heart and spirit. What a gift I have been given!
To the Baer family I want you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Your Mom was great lady.
To my best friends Mom (Mrs. Baer)thanks for allowing me to be part of your family. Love to all of you.
We delivered meals to Mrs. Baer. She was always so appreciative of us volunteers. We shall miss her bright smile, her friendliness, and most of all, her upbeat attitude. Blessings to the family.
Your mothers smile was so beautiful,heart warming. Wish we had known her longer. may God bring you all the comfort and strength you need.
Lovingly, Don and Joni Moe
Ellen Baer, my friend and fellow librarian, a truly great lady!
Our dear, Aunt Ellen . . . so sweet that she, like always, was grateful with what was right there in front of her, and continues to remind us all to do the same!
With love and many wonderful memories of a great lady,
What lovely and gracious woman. I remember her with endearment. My thoughts and prayers are with her family in this time of sorrow.
In lieu of flowers, Ellen's family will be grateful for donations to Friends of the Atascadero Library http://www.atascaderofriendsofthelibrary.org or to El Camino Homeless Organization http://www.echoshelter.net/
I like many others owe our love for reading to Mrs. Baer. May the love of those around you and the love of God, help you through the days ahead
Mrs. Baer, as I knew her, was such a gracious lady. Back in the 60's and 70's kids still called their friend's parents as Mr. or Mrs. And I would not be able to change that now. Her daughter, Celia and I spent so much time together, and I always got to see Mrs. Baer doing the many many things she did; taking care of her household, baking bread every Saturday, such a cool thing I thought, tending the garden, cooking, reading, going to work as the school librarian, and of course walking! She and Mr. Baer have been an inspiration. Mrs. Baer always had nice things to say to me. She was someone that would make you want to do your best. It is hard to believe that both Mr. and Mrs. Baer are gone. They will always be remembered with great appreciation and will continue to inspire me. I have added a beautiful picture of poppies, becauae I know Mrs. Baer so appreciated things of beauty and the outdoors.
Love to all of the Baer family.
Mrs. Baer gave me the lifelong love of reading. As a child, I loved it when she read stories to us. Such a sweet lady.

Ellen was a wonderful person who lived an exemplary life, raising 8 great children and serving her community in a multitude of ways. She was a person of great faith and courage. Ellen will be sorely missed by all of us who were fortunate enough to know her.
