  8. My heart was broken when I heard of Mother Baker’s passing. She was a gift to the Body of Christ and a wonderful ambassador for the Lord. She was full of life and amazed me when I saw her skating and bowling? She was also a faithful friend to my mother, Reverend Mable Holt-Hymes. She could make banana bread with extra nuts like no other!! You’ve gone from labor to reward and reunited with those who have gone before. Praise Jesus some for me! You will be sorely missed. God’s blessings and peace to the family. Rita Lawson

We spent many of years with Mother Baker at StrongTower and now Miracle Catherdal. She was one feisty lady, but love Christ with a pure heart. May she forever rest in peace, and Rejoice In Heaven, for a solider has made it home. God Bless you all.
