Well, good evening everyone, or morning, or afternoon, honestly, who knows? This is Evelyn Baker speaking, or rather, writing to you from the great beyond. As you all may know, I am a proud Idahoan, born in Boise on a sunny day of July 20th, 1938. Since then, I embarked on a journey of love, laughter, and adventure. I moved to Sarasota, Florida, where I spent the last 30 years of my life bringing sunshine to every corner of the county. I was also known as Evie, the world's best grandmother, a title I wore with pride and a dash of humor.\n\nIn my life, I've been a lot of things. A loving wife to my dear Fred, a courageous medical doctor - yes, I've seen things you wouldn't believe, an ambitious marathon runner, even at the ripe age of 90! I was a funny woman, or so I've been told, who loved to knit, quilt, and occasionally sing in the choir. I even won multiple awards for my quilts, which I'm sure are now precious family heirlooms. I served others with a smile, after all, it's what mattered most to me. "Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms." (1 Peter 4:10)\n\nI was always helping people, whether it was in my profession, in my Sarasota Knitting Club, or simply by being a good neighbor. I loved my dogs, my family, and oh, I was a massive fan of Creedence Clearwater Revival - I've lost count of how many concerts I attended! I had a great smile, or so people told me, and I loved to spread that joy around. I was never just a resident of Sarasota, I was a part of its fabric.\n\nAll this to say, I lived a full and wonderful life. I leave behind my devoted husband Fred, my children Amy, Fred, and John, and my siblings, Sally and Bill. Not forgetting my precious granddaughter Mary, and the many family members that filled my life with joy. I was preceded in death by my loving parents, Billy and Sandra Baker. I hope they've kept a spot for me up there.\n\nServices under the direction of Your Funeral Home were held at Wood River Chapel, and I was laid to rest at the Meridian Cemetery. Although these events have occurred, I welcome you to visit the links provided and share your memories of our time together. Upload photos, write down your favorite "Evie" moment, and let's keep the laughter going. After all, I might be gone, but I'm still here in spirit, and that spirit loves a good chuckle.
