Mrs. Mary Lee Baker

Mrs. Mary Lee Roberts Baker, age 83 of Roopville, Georgia passed away at her home on Friday, September 11, 2015.

Funeral services for Mrs. Baker were conducted on Monday, September 14, 2015, 2:00 p.m. from the Stutts Funeral Home Chapel in Franklin, Georgia with the Reverend Mike Hornsby officiating.

Music was provided by Mrs. Baker’s grandson and his wife, Benjamin and Tammy Baldwin. The interment followed in the Unity Baptist Church Cemetery.

Those serving as pallbearers were Curtis Baker, Jr., Benjamin Baldwin, Joshua Baker, Lee Boone, Jimmy Starnes, Jacob Starnes, and Ronny Simpson.

Mrs. Baker was born in Douglasville, Georgia on October 28, 1931, the daughter of the late Alice Carrie Whitley Roberts and Thomas Benjamin Roberts. She was always a caring person, and that was reflected in her choice of careers as Registered Nurse. The loving and professional manner in which she cared for the sick eased the suffering that each of her patients experienced.

Never the slacker, she worked tirelessly in the business that she co-owned with her husband. J. C.’s Salvage was a blessing to all who were their customers, providing quality merchandise at a much lesser price. She was a gifted pianist and was accompanist at one time for Wendy Bagwell.

Even though her work ethic kept her busy she always made time for her family, preparing wonderful meals that would bring the family together. She was especially proud of her grandchildren and spent as much time as possible with each of them as she could. Even though there was never a lot of extra time, when time permitted she loved going to Biloxi, Mississippi to play the slot machines. She was a lovely lady who will be missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her beloved husband J C Baker of Roopville, GA.; two daughters, Karen Baker of Roopville, GA., and Carolyn Ann Delano (Frank) of Franklin, GA.; two sons, Billy and Jerry Baker both of Roopville, GA.; ten grandchildren; and fifteen great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by one son, Curtis Baker; two sisters, Annice Couch, and Nina Nellett; and four brothers, Bill, Red, Howard, and Thad Roberts.
