Mary M. Baker


AGE: 89 • Wilmington

Mary M. Baker, 89 of Wilmington, DE peacefully passed away on Sunday, April 13, 2014.

Peg was born in Zihlman, MD on September 28, 1924, daughter of the late Thomas and Laura (Blank) Armstrong. She was employed with the State of Delaware and retired as a school cafeteria manager in 1980 after many years of dedicated service. Peg was the epitome of a matriarch and her greatest source of joy was being surrounded by her beloved family.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 63 years, Bernard J. Baker in 2003; and her son, Thomas B. Baker, Sr. in 2012.

Peg will be lovingly remembered by her daughters, Laura J. Watkins and Rose A. Baker; her sister, Jeanne Rightley; her grandchildren, Maryann Giroso, Thomas B. Baker, Jr. and Kelly A. Watkins; and her great grandchildren, Jennifer Giroso, Brian Brzozowski and Hope Brzozowski.

The family would like to thank the staff of Weston Adult Day Care for the love, care and support given to Peg.
