Baker, Elsie - Yellow Springs  
YELLOW SPRINGS — Elsie K. Baker, 85, of Yellow Springs, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Monday, November 17, 2014. She was born on February 25, 1929, in Clark County, the daughter of the late Christopher and Nancy (Gibson) Knox. To Elsie, family was the most important part of her life. She was raised in foster care and was separated from her siblings for her entire childhood before reuniting with them as adults. After graduating from South Charleston High School, she started nursing school in Springfield and met her beloved soul mate, Oliver. After dating for around a year, they married on February 10, 1949. In 1950, she had her first son, Daryl and over the next 18 years, Oliver gave her the big family she always wanted, 5 more children, Kathryn, Janet, Denise, Brian and Maria. While her husband worked at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Elsie took care of the home and her children. She was a dedicated and strong wife and mother who always put her family's needs before her own. Not having much of a family life as a child, she made sure her family had the best care she could provide. Everyone knew Elsie and she knew everyone. Through her adult life, after her children were gone from home, she made sure to take care of her neighbors and community friends and touched every life who met her. Her life was as beautiful as she, and her long 85 years could not be summed up in words, but her love and dedication to her family and friends is the legacy she leaves behind. She is preceded in death by her husband, Oliver; daughter, Kathy Baker; 2 brothers and 1 sister. She is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, Daryl (Jenna) Baker and Brian (Carol) Baker; daughters and sons-in-law, Janet Ramsey, Denise Baker and Maria (Chuck) Eltman; 10 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; half-sister, Phyllis Myers; and numerous nieces, nephews and many special friends. Viewing will be held on Friday, November 21, 2014 from 5-7 p.m. at Jackson Lytle & Lewis Funeral Home - Yellow Springs. Service will be held on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 10a.m. at the Yellow Springs United Methodist Church with Pastor Sherri Blackwell officiating. Burial to follow at Glen Forest Cemetery.
