Eleanor L. Baker
Eleanor L. Baker, 97, a resident of Bokeelia, FL, formerly of Lima, OH, passed on peacefully with a sweet smile on her beautiful face, Saturday, June 12, 2021 at her daughter Beth’s home in Bokeelia. She was born May 18, 1924 in Cleveland, OH to Vid and Josephine Jansik.
Eleanor was of the “invincible” World War II generation; stoic, strong, hardworking, and fun loving. Those who knew her, held her class and grace in high esteem. She will be remembered for the beauty she always saw in God’s world about her.
She is survived by her loving children, Greg Baker of Lima, OH, Lori Askins of Fort Wayne, IN, Gary Baker (Linda) of Worthington, OH, and Elizabeth Johns (Dan) of Bokeelia, FL; nephew, George Ketvertis (Chris) of Strongsville, OH; as well as eight grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren. Special thanks to her granddaughter Jessica, who was a tireless caregiver.
Eleanor was preceded in death by husband, George Baker in 1977; sister, Dolly Ketvertis; as well as grandson Nicholas Taflinger.
Private family services will be held at a later date in Lima, OH, when she is brought “home” for burial in Gethsemani Cemetery.
Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
