Ann Cleveland Baker Scarborough of Silver Lake, New Hampshire and Hilton Head, South Carolina died peacefully after a long journey with Alzheimer's disease on February 22, 2018 at her home in Hilton Head in the loving company of her three children. Mrs. Scarborough, the daughter of Captain Roland Henry Baker Sr. and Dorothy Cleveland Baker, was born in Boston, Massachusetts on September 23, 1932. After graduating from The Beaver Country Day school in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts she attended Garland College in Boston where she earned a degree in Art and Design. Ann was an active member of the First Congregational Church in Scituate Massachusetts, a member of the Topsfield, Massachusetts Congregational Church and the Madison Church in Madison, New Hampshire. Her faith, which she wore lightly, was deep and sustaining. A gentlewoman's grace and courtesy, and a New Englander's common sense, grit, and ready sense of humor informed all that Ann did. Beautiful inside and out, she maintained her youthful countenance and sense of fun throughout her life; her Alzheimer's never altered the fundamental sweetness and loving kindness of her nature but instead released her to be her most joyful and loving self. Anyone who met 'Miss Ann' came away feeling the better for it. Her ways of saying "I love you" were boundless and were her parting words. Ann was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 58 years, Collin Wesley Scarborough, to whom she was a supportive and devoted partner in all ventures and successes, and her brother-in-law Richard Holmes Scarborough. She is survived by her sister-in-law Patricia Scarborough of Exeter, New Hampshire; daughter Robin Palomares and son-in-law Carlos Palomares of Miami, Florida, daughter Gail Scarborough of Bluffton, South Carolina, son David Scarborough and daughter-in-law, Tracy Scarborough of Hood River, Oregon; six grandchildren, one great grandchild, 3 nieces, a grandniece and five grandnephews. Her family will always cherish the care given to her over the course of her illness, first by her loving husband and then for almost seven years by her devoted caregivers in South Carolina, Luenetta Grayson, Justine Brantley, Habibah Ismael and Sara Hazel. A memorial service will be held at the Madison Church, 53 Conway Road in Madison New Hampshire on August 6, 11:00 a.m. with a reception to follow at the home of David and Tracy Scarborough. Memorial donations may be made to the MassGeneral Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases in Boston, Massachusetts c/o Krista McCabe, Massachusetts General Hospital, Development Office - Suite 540, 125 Nashua Street, Boston, MA 02114.
