Mrs, Baker was a always my favorite teacher and a friend for many years. Her influence on my appreciation of art has lasted my whole life. I will never forget what a wonderful person she was.

Mrs. Baker was such a kind and accomplished teacher who touched the lives of so many of us from PHS. She will live on in our hearts. Condolences to her family.

Mrs Baker was such a warm comforting lady. She was as smart as a whip and funny and so kind. She has touched our lives and left us all better from it. We were so fortunate to have known her.

Sorry to see about Mrs. Baker's passing. She was my art teacher at Perry, and because of her encouragement, I majored in Fine Arts at Ohio State. After receiving a Masters in Education, I followed in her footsteps and became an art teacher. I enjoyed visiting with her last December. She will always hold a special place in my heart.❤

To Bob, Sherri, Terrie, so sorry to read of your Mompassing. Sending my sincere condolences to all of your family Remembering with fondness of our shared Camp Harknessdays. Take care during this difficult time. Sincerely,Donna M. Kidner (Latona)Painesville, Ohio.

She was an awesome women and teacher. She made us our best even when we had no artistic talent. Always pleasant and positive. What aa wonderful long life she had. May she rest in peace.

I can't even begin to describe the impact that dear woman had on my life and the way I look at life. She was the perfect role model; the more I got to know her, the more I aspired to be just like her. Now I realize how many students loved her as much as I did. My deepest sympathy to all of you.

Time spent in Mrs Baker's classroom was a joy as she encouraged, assisted and supported each student.
Her's was always my favorite class.
Because her attention was so focused on us, she rarely took up the tools of art and created herself but I vividly remember the shockwave of inspiration her beautiful pieces sent through me.
I stayed in touch with her for a time after high school and her friendship and support encouraged me to pursue and win my MFA.
Each day I still try...
