Mrs. Hiram Baker Died In Missouri
Misses Letitia and Ella Day, of Corning, received word last week, of the death of their sister, Mrs. Hiram Baker, of Springfield, Missouri, on June 3, at 9:30 a. m. Even though Mrs. Baker had been ill for a long time with a heart ailment, her passing was a shock to her family.
Before moving to Springfield, the family were residents of Corning for many years, having built the home now occupied by Lonnie Ruben. There they made their home and raised a fine family. Mr. Baker traveled for the Sheridan and Clayton company, of St. Joe, Missouri, for many years. About the year 1912, Mrs. Baker and her younger son, Edwin, purchased an acreage near Springfield, and here the family resided until last year, when, due to ill health, they rented a house in town, living with a daughter and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bugg.
Mrs. Bugg will be remembered as Florence Baker, and has taught in the college there for a number of years. Another daughter, Mrs. Bloodgood, of California, had only returned home from a visit with her parents when she received word of her mother’s death. All the other children were able to be with their father, at the time of the funeral services.
Mrs. Baker was preceded in death by her parents, her mother passing away in 1915, at the age of 90 years. As sister, Miss Mary Golden, died in 1926.
Many friends will remember the family and mourn with those who are left.
