Axon, Shirley  
Axon, Shirley 6/19/1929 - 7/13/2018 Ann Arbor Shirley Axon died on July 13, 2018. She was 89 years old. A modern dancer, Shirley was active in environmental and social issues her entire life and founded several Ann Arbor organizations. Shirley is survived by three children, Kyle, Mia and Jonathan, and six grandchildren. Don Axon, her husband for sixty years, passed away in 2015. Shirley grew up mostly in Kansas. She moved to Michigan shortly after her marriage and became enamored of the Great Lakes and the Huron River. In the late 70s she began participating in state, regional and local efforts to improve our waters and the environment. Governor Milliken appointed her to the Michigan Hazardous Waste Management Planning Committee. The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments asked her to join the Environmental Policy Advisory Committee. And locally she represented Ann Arbor on the Huron River Watershed Council, a post which lasted for 35 years until her retirement in 2013. She co-founded Huron River Day with a friend to help focus community awareness on the river; this event has been an annual summer celebration for 38 years since its founding.Shirley co-founded Friends of Dance for the University of Michigan Dance Department and chaired the group for many years. She founded International Neighbors, a group focused on befriending and providing support for the spouses of foreign students coming to study at the University. Early in the 1970s, when local nursery schools did not accept foreign children because they would absorb too much of the teacher's time due to language barriers, she founded the Friendship International Cooperative Nursery. The nursery is still going. She was also a local president of both the League of Women Voters and the American Association of University Women.Shirley received a Bachelor's degree from the University of Oklahoma and a Master's degree in Geography from the University of Michigan. Some of her other hobbies and interests included a short stint as importer of fine teas from India and China and international travel with family and close friends. And she taught and performed modern dance, a recreation that continued to be important to her until her death.Shirley was a prominent community leader, a wonderful friend to many, a loving mother and grandmother. She made the world a better place and will be missed.A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, August 5th at the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation located at 4001 Ann Arbor-Saline Road ( www.uuaa.org ). Her family has requested any memorials honoring Shirley be contributed to either the Huron Watershed Council at 1100 North Main Street #210, Ann Arbor MI 48104 or the Shirley and Donald Axon Dance Scholarship, University of Michigan's School of Music, Theatre & Dance, Office of Development, Stearns Building, 2005 Baits Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48109.

Baker, Sally  
Baker, Sally 2/3/1922 - 7/3/2018 Ann Arbor, Michigan Sally Baker passed away at St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital on July 3, 2018 after a short illness. She was born in Indian Village in Detroit on February 3, 1922, the daughter of Edith Riley and Raymond Baubie. She attended Liggett School. While there she began what was to be a life-long avocation of volunteer service at the Sigma Gamma Hospital, now the Detroit Orthopedic Clinic. She received her B.A. at the University of Michigan during World War II where she was a member of Collegiate Sorosis sorority. She then joined Chrysler's Special Adult Training Department for college graduates that aimed to prepare future management personnel. She married Lt. Luther Sandwick, Jr., a bombadier in B29s who predeceased her. She later moved to Ann Arbor and continued her volunteer work at the University Hospital, activity which turned into a permanent position. At that time, she remarried Sheridan Baker, a professor of English at the University of Michigan. They greatly enjoyed traveling and spent a year in Japan and another in England. Here at home they were avid readers and tennis players. Sally primarily devoted her volunteer work to the Ann Arbor Thrift Shop and Women's National Farm and Garden. She was also a long-time member of the Junior League, Ann Arbor City Club, Racquet Club, and the Huron Valley Tennis Club. When she stopped playing tennis, she poured that energy into bridge and spent many hours playing duplicate matches at the City Club, often winning honors for her play and attaining Golden Age Master status. In her last years, she devoted her volunteer hours to her friends, frequently taking them on errands and to appointments or driving them, of course, to bridge. As one friend said, she was "a natural-born caregiver, knowing the needs and pleasures of those on the receiving end." Sally Baker was predeceased by her husband, Sheridan Baker, and her brother, William E. Baubie of Grosse Pointe. She is survived by her daughters, Libby (James) Walton of Pinkney, MI and Elizabeth (Robert Abbe) Baker of Newton, MA, and her son, William S. Baker of Royal Oak, MI; her grandsons, Brian Lagler of Ann Arbor and Thomas Abbe of Cape Cod, MA, and granddaughters Krista Walton of Ypsilanti and Jamie W. Krinock of Howell, MI; her great grandchildren Lailah Monge, Lucas Lagler, Madison Krinock and Ellie Krinock; and her niece, Virginia Whitney of Grosse Pointe. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the charity of your choice. A private burial has taken place at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church. A memorial lunch will be served at the Ann Arbor City Club at noon on Wednesday, September 26, 2018.
