From Slade O'Donnell Funeral Home, Leon, Iowa

Marjorie Mae Baker, daughter of Elmer Allen and Mabel (Kinch) Ackerman, was born November 30, 1924 in Glendive, Montana and passed from this life, May, 21, 2022 at Southern Hills Specialty Care in Osceola, Iowa at 97 years of age. Mabel passed away when Marjorie was only a few weeks old. Elmer remarried, and his second wife, Ida May Parker, became Marjorie’s mother.

Marjorie graduated from high school in Mountain Grove, Missouri, on May 16, 1941.

Marjorie was united in marriage to Dennis Hubert Baker on September 5, 1947 in Kansas City, Missouri. They were the parents of two children, Ida Ann and Ray Dean. Marjorie was baptized into the Van Wert Christian Church on April 11, 1954 in Van Wert, Iowa.

Marjorie worked at a shoe factory in Kansas City, Missouri, and later at Snowden’s in Osceola, Iowa. Her favorite career, however, was working alongside her husband on their farm outside of Weldon, Iowa. Marjorie loved animals, especially their cattle herd.

Over the years she had many interests including crocheting, gardening, helping others, sending cards to friends & family, and watching baseball. Marjorie loved watching almost any kind of sport. She also enjoyed a good cup of coffee.

Marjorie was a loyal supporter of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She showed that support by attending 4-H activities, little league ball games, band concerts, and scouting ceremonies, to name a few.

Marjorie was truly one of a kind. Although she was petite in size, her determination was boundless and unstoppable. One never had to guess what was on Marjorie’s mind, which made conversations with her very entertaining. Marjorie was extremely loving and partial to those she loved. She will be missed by many.

Marjorie was preceded in death by her parents, Elmer and Mabel Kinch Ackerman and Ida May Ackerman; husband, Dennis Baker; daughter, Ida West; son-in-law, Wayne West; and her sisters and their husbands, Evelyn & Roy Garcie, Ella & John Johnson, and Beverly Ruth & John Hollman.

Marjorie is survived by son, Ray Baker (Carla) of Osceola; grandchildren, Mickey West, Lorie (Scott) Kent, Johnny (Ashley) Richardson, Billy (Andrea) Baker and Sean Baker; great-grandchildren, Augustus Sherry (Jenna), Austin West (Alexis), Dannelle West, Timber Kent, Julie West, Billy Ray Baker, and Becky Baker; great-great grandson, Ledger West; nieces and nephews; and other relatives and friends.
