Shirley M. Baker, 83, of Bristolville, passed away surrounded by her loving family, Monday morning, July 1, 2019, at her residence.

She was born June 20, 1936 in Warren, a daughter of Alphonse and Ada (Calkins) Novicki.

Shirley was a 1954 graduate of Bristol High School, and then went on to achieve a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education degree from Kent State University. She was employed as a teacher in the Bristol and Farmington Schools for 25 years, retiring in 1994.

She married Donald D. Baker on December 1, 1956. They shared almost 63 years of marriage and many happy memories together. He survives her.

Shirley attended the Bristolville United Methodist Church. She enjoyed flowers and gardening, reading, and doing needlework. She also enjoyed all of the fun times and memories she shared with her husband's sister, Marlene McKimmy, with whom she grew up. They truly were sisters at heart. Shirley's family was her greatest priority and joy. She was a loving, nurturing wife and mother and will be sadly missed by all those who knew and loved her.

Besides her husband, Shirley is survived by two children; Anna Marie Baker, and Donald D. (Cherie) Baker, Jr., both of Bristolville; a sister, Alice Campbell, of Bristolville; three grandchildren; Hailey and Michael Baker, and Jennifer (Chad) Thresher; and her sister-in-law, Marlene (Paul) McKimmy, of Kinsman.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
