Agi was born in Szarvas, Hungary, to Imre and Ilona Fleischer. As a child, she and her entire family were sent to Bergen Belsen Concentration Camp during the Holocaust. On April 13, 1945, she was liberated by a unit of the U.S. Army under the command of Lt. Carol Walsh. All in her family perished except her mother, sister and herself. Agi migrated to Israel where she served in the Israeli Army. She later worked for Sheraton Hotels where she met her husband Ronald Baker. In 1962, she moved to the U.S. and proudly became an American citizen. She and Ron raised two children while living in Trumbull and Monroe, CT, and later moved to Bradenton, FL. Agi was fond of wine spritzers, chicken katsu, Häagen-Dasz Rum Raisin Ice Cream, and Sunday morning political talk shows. She is survived by Ron, her beloved husband of 59 years; son David J. Baker of East Haven, CT; daughter Michelle J. Baker of Santa Rosa, CA: sister and brother-in-law Linda and Gary Brannigan of Plattsburgh, NY; special cousin Mary Lowe of Trumbull, CT; and several nieces and nephews.

Agi became my friend when I moved to the USA with my family 15 years ago. We had a special connection. She was an amazing friend and like a second mom. Agi had a great sense of humor and she loved Hungarian Teli salami. She will be greatly missed.
Ron, David and Michelle, please accept our sincere condolences.

Agi was one of the strongest women I have ever met. She endured more in her childhood than most of us do in a lifetime. Her family meant everything to her. She was very proud of her children, and the life she had with my brother brought her such happiness. She will be in my thoughts often, especially when eating Indian food and preparing my special house salad dressing. She honored me with the compliment "You make the best salad" and would proceed to go back for seconds and thirds! I will miss her.
