We Remember


With heartfelt sadness, we announce the passing of Edna Mae Elizabeth Baker (née Hughes) on May 4, 2022, at Kelowna General Hospital with her family by her side. Edna was predeceased by her son, Rob, and her loving husband, Art. She was loved and cherished by many people including her brothers Bob (Trudy) and Terry; her daughters Tammy (Collin) and Sandy; son Brian (Marlisse); and her grandchildren Desiree, Kate, Amelie, Cole, Chloe, and Eve Marie.

Edna was born January 8, 1939, in Berwyn, Alberta. She married the love of her life, Albert Arthur Baker, in 1957, and they started their family. They lived in several towns throughout Alberta before spending 15 years in Calgary from 1973 to 1988 when they ultimately relocated to West Kelowna, BC. Edna took great pride in her work as a Medical Office Assistant both during her time in Calgary and in Kelowna, where she spent over 20 years at Guisachan Family Medicine.

Edna was a devoted member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in West Kelowna.  She felt a great sense of community within the church and over the years volunteered with the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul delivering food aid to those in need. Edna was very social and was known to be the first to start up a conversation and meet new people. She will be greatly missed by all those who loved her.

In lieu of flowers, please donate on Edna’s behalf to COPD Canada, www.copdcanada.info.

    Lovely photo of Dear Edna and the comments so fitting of a Grand lady who made a difference in this world. Edna was a loving Aunty to Leanne and Karen from buying them snow suits to being the Friendly Pie Lady who sold her baking to guests at West Bay Beach. every summer. My heart goes out to all the Baker Family and Bob and especially Terry who was there for her as his sister’s health changed. You will miss her dearly. as she lived a full community and family life.
    Rest in Peace Dear Edna Mae Baker..Loving thoughts always, Judy . xo

    What a nice picture of Auntie Edna. A beautiful lady inside and out. Always so welcoming and so great full for her and Uncle Art allowing me to hide out at their motorhome when the boys were being mean and picking on me. She even hid my mom from my dad when she was having too much fun singing and dancing. She had a special place in my my moms life. Now they are dancing together again. So many fond childhood memories with the Baker family. Rest In Peace Auntie. Love always.
