Gloria Baker

June 29, 1944 - September 14, 2018

Gloria Martin Baker, 74, peacefully entered Heaven Friday morning, September 14, 2018. 

A funeral service will be held at 2 PM on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at Fair Funeral Home Chapel with the Reverend Bobby Lawson officiating.  Interment will follow the service in Mountain View Cemetery in Ridgeway, VA.  The family will receive friends on Monday evening from 5 -7 PM at Fair Funeral Home and other times at the residence.

Mrs. Baker was born on June 29, 1944 to the late Crowsey Martin and Minnie Hancock Martin.  She was a faithful member of Temple of Faith in Ridgeway, VA.  Gloria was well loved by many nieces, nephews and dear friends as she was always willing to help others.  Passionate about shopping, cooking and gift giving for no other reason than to see a little smile on their face.  A new journey awaits her in Heaven where we will miss her dearly until we meet once again.  

Mrs.  Baker is survived by her husband, Sidney E. Baker of the home; son, Gregory Baker and wife, Joy; daughter, Robin Harris and husband, Dennis; grandchild, Rachel Honer and husband, Jacob; two great-grandchildren, Riley and Jordan of Irvin, California.  Also surviving are her sisters, Gladys Brown and Joy McDaniel.

Along with her parents she is preceded in death by her sisters, Madeline Vernon, Francis Vernon and Lucille Amos and brothers, John Martin and Morie Martin. 

Thank you all for sharing your support, condolences and precious memories with our Mom during this time.

My sweet Aunt Gloria you will be missed dearly. I will miss our phone calls, laughter, prayers, visiting you. Your wonderful homemade pound cakes that you seemed to make me every time I drove in from Knoxville. You fought the good fight, kept your courage, faith and love of God thru your long journey of sickness. You never complained or questioned your sickness always said that you asked God to use you. For whatever reason God choice not to heal you but take you home to be with Him and your love ones. But He did use you Gloria you empacted my life and so many more. I love you and look forward to the day I will see you again. ❤️

Heartfelt thoughts and prayers for peace and comfort for the family. I have fond memories of Gloria stopping by the nursery after a shopping trip and showing me her yreasures and for sharing her homemade goodies. Such a beautiful and sweet lady that will be missed by many but whose memory will last forever.
