1920 - 2012 Obituary Condolences
Doris M. Baker, 91, a resident of Sugar Hill, passed away peacefully on May 6, 2012 at Berkshire Medical Center after a long battle with osteoporosis.
Born in Adams on November 21, 1920, daughter of Philia and Roy Desnoyers, she was a lifelong resident of Berkshire County. She attended the former Adams High School, graduating with the Class of 1938.
She was employed at Brightwater Paper Co. and retired from Waverly Fabrics in 1986.
In addition to being with her family, she was also an avid Red Sox, Patriots and Celtics fan. She loved bingo and would talk to anyone that would listen. Her love of knitting and crocheting resulted in many quilts, sweaters and a multitude of other items many of which she would give to friends or donate to local fundraisers. She enjoyed completing especially complicated designs.
Survivors include two sons: Thomas and his wife Patricia of Dalton, James and his wife Rebecca of Brownstown, Ind.; four grandchildren, Matthew and his wife Shelley, Marc and his fiancé Kristen, Christopher and Cassandra, one great granddaughter, Lauren and two step great granddaughters Kyra and Piper.
