Carolyn Claire Baker, 54, of Houston, Texas, passed away Aug. 14, 2014. She was born March 1, 1960, in Midland, to Dr. Charles Baker and the late Lois (Leaver) Baker. Carolyn graduated from Midland High School in 1978, and attended Michigan State University
and Northwood Institute. She was an accomplished floral arranger and worked for several florists in Midland, and Lake Jackson, Texas. After raising her children, Carolyn attended the Culinary Institute LeNotre, and used her extraordinary cooking skills to launch her business Black Tie Cuisine as a personal chef. She was also a beloved volunteer in her daughter's 2nd grade class at Silverline Montessori School. However, it was her vocation as a loving mother and devoted "Soccer Mom" for which she will be most remembered. Carolyn was a loyal and generous friend to all those who were blessed to have known her. Her sassy sense of humor will be sorely missed.
She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her husband, John Eaton; daughter, Denae Moldovan of Houston; and son, Garrett Moldovan of Angleton, Texas; her father, Dr. Charles Baker of Midland; brothers, Carey (Gail) Baker of Highland, Kevin Baker of Bath and Curt (Lori) Baker of Midland; an aunt and uncle; and a host of cousins, nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her mother; sister, Kathryn Baker; and nephew, Aaron Smith.
Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m., Sept. 20, 2014, at Palms Funeral Home, Angleton, Texas. There will be no graveside services. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Carolyn's name to www.mdanderson.org/gifts
