Delores Imogene Baker
MILES CITY Ms. Delores Imogene Derden Baker, 67, from Miles City, a loving mother, daughter, teacher and friend, died of complication from diabetes Wednesday, April 10, in her Great Falls home.

A private memorial of her life has taken place. Schnider Funeral Home handled arrangements.

Born in March 1946, Imogene was an accomplished singer and pianist while attending Custer County High School. In 1965, she won the Miss Miles City pageant with her vocal rendition of "Carmenita" and went on to become a finalist in the Miss Montana pageant while attending the University of Montana in Missoula. Imogene's continued love of music created a desire for travel and teaching that would take her to Mexico, Canada, Spain and finally Rocky Boy where she taught music and art. As an entrepreneur, Imogene started various small businesses both in Montana and Canada in preceding years. A caring and compassionate person, Imogene's religious conviction of selfless service and small town Montana values would motivate her to become certified as a CNA in 2000. Her favorite pastimes were staying busy creating original artworks and being with her family, a trend that continued until her untimely death.

She is survived by her three children, Channing, Chanelle and Cory; and her nine grandchildren.
