Louise Baker Obituary
Louise Baker

Ithaca, NY - Louise Hicks Baker, 91, formerly of York, died December 5, 2017, having lived each day of her life with optimism and grace.

Always a lover of the outdoors, her life had many wonderful chapters: childhood summers on Mount Desert Island, skiing in the Alps while working in Munich for Radio Free Europe in the early 50's, vacations in New England with her children and second husband Bert Smith, travels around the world with third husband Van Baker, walks and swimming in Cayuga Lake in her last years in Ithaca.

She was for many years a librarian in the Dover School District, sharing her love of books with countless children. She inspired by quiet example and had a gift for appreciating life.

Predeceased by husbands, Bert and Van; she is survived by her children, Doug, Sue, and Libby Smith (John Larsen); step children, Eric Baker and Molly Blankenstein (Ed); grandchildren, Nathan, Steven, Troy, Katie, Will, Abigail, and Owen; and great-grandson Wyatt.

Family and friends are invited to gather to remember Louise on Saturday, June 23, 2 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of York, 925 S. George St., York, PA 17403. Memorial contributions can be made to UUCY.
