AGE: 89 • Wilmington

Anna P. Baker, age 89, of Wilmington, DE, passed away peacefully on April 18, 2016. Born in Wilmington, she was the daughter of the late Walter and Anna Alfonsus Powell.

Anna was a graduate of P.S. DuPont High School. After graduating, she worked at Wilmington Trust until she married her husband, Evan, and started her family. From 1981 until retiring in 1992, Anna worked as a secretary at Wilmington Finishing Co. (Bancroft Mills). She was a longtime parishioner at Christ Our King Church, where she was involved in many activities involving the church and school. For the past 15 years, she was a parishioner at St. Elizabeth's Church.

Anna's family and her faith were the most important parts of her life. She cherished spending time with her family and loved family parties and get-togethers. Anna enjoyed spending time at her beach house in Lewes, where she loved playing cards with her longtime friends. In her spare time, she enjoyed crocheting, sewing, gardening and baking. Anna's family and friends will miss her infectious laugh that she was known for.

Anna was predeceased by her husband, Evan D. Baker Sr., as well as her parents, and siblings George, Walter, Rae, and Marie. She is survived by her sons, Evan D. Baker, Jr. (Donna), Richard Baker (Brooke), John Baker and Gregory Baker; her daughters, Patricia Sarro (the late Paul), Diane Butler, and Marie Merrill (Paul); her brothers, Paul Powell (Arlene), Joseph Powell (Rose) and William Powell (Peggy); her sister, Lucille Dickerson (Jerry); as well as 14 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.
