Surrounded by her children and family, Shirley [Segal] Baker passed quietly away at home on October 8, 2018.
Born and raised in Brookline, MA, Shirley married her high school sweetheart, Steven (Suttie) Baker, with whom she shared a wonderful life for sixty-one years until his passing in March of 2006.
There is so much to tell about this beautiful, intelligent, clear thinking, strong, and open-minded woman, but most significantly is how we, her children, daughters-in-law, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren respected, loved, and cared for her, exactly as she did, us.
Shirley is survived by her son, Neil Baker and his wife, Gail Stickland; her son, Michael Baker and his wife, Deena Baker; her daughter, Joanne Baker, grandchildren Chris and Maisy Baker, Allison Baker Cohen, Samuel Baker and his fiancée, Katie Leighton, Gabe and Lindsey Grossman; and two beloved great-grandchildren, Dylan and Marley Cohen.
