  • BAKER, VIRGINIA H. Age 96, passed peacefully from this world on July 5, 2014. She was born September 24, 1917 near Mount Pleasant, IA to Warren and Verna (Westfall) Hall. She was preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Mary Jane and Carolyn. She is survived by her beloved husband of nearly 72 years, Chester B.

Ginny was a hard worker as a child, often reminiscing about how she helped her father plow the fields behind a mule. She attended a one-room school house in rural southeastern Iowa and went on to high school and attended Iowa Wesleyan College. After their marriage and some time in Ames, Iowa, she and Chet moved to California where he was stationed during World War II. After the war, they began a long and interesting life together as Chet became involved in academics. They lived for several years in Bozeman, Montana, and then Urbana, Illinois, where they spent 47 years. Chet's work also took them all over the world. No matter where they lived, Ginny made their house a home, warm and welcoming to any guest. She volunteered at church and in the community as well. During her long and loving life, she taught Sunday school, read to the blind in the Champaign County Nursing Home, volunteered at the local hospital and worked with underprivileged children in church day care. She always had time to listen and to comfort any and all who needed help. She developed deep and enduring friendships. Family was the most important thing to Virginia. She was one of those wonderful stay-at-home mothers who was always there for her husband and her children. There was always a place at Ginny's table, whether for a bridge party, dinner or coffee in the afternoon; for a chat or for a marathon up until 3 am with a grandchild. They loved the talks. Ginny loved them. Ginny and Chet moved from Urbana to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2005 to be with their 3 children and grandchildren, who were so grateful to have Ginny nearby for the remaining years.
