The Missouri Jaycees send our condolences to the Baldwin family.

I taught Junior High Sunday School with Carol at St. Mark many years ago. She was always a joy to be with and we shared many laughs. She and Kirby were always so pleased to have been Charter Members of St. Mark Presbyterian. We've missed both of them. Hugs and prayers of peace an comfort.

So sorry for the loss of your Mom. Prayers and caring thoughts to you and your family. She was a beautiful lady.

I remember Carol's laugh and beautiful eyes! We talked many times as we were both members at St. Mark Presbyterian Church, which is located in the Baldwins' neighborhood.

So sorry for your loss

My deepest condolences and prayers for you and your family. I first had Mrs. Baldwin as a teacher at PCJH. I later had the pleasure of serving with her at St. Mark’s as a Shepherd. She was a wonderful and sweet lady. ❤
