BAKER, MARY ALICE
Age 73, passed away February 20, 2012 in Albuquerque. Mary was born in Owatonna, MN to Charles and Margie Bailey. She met and married her first husband, John Haigh and moved to Colorado Springs where they raised five children. She married her second husband, Eugene Baker in 1981 and relocated to Albuquerque, where she resided for 31 years. Together they lived a love story that we all should be so lucky to experience.

She is survived by her loving husband of 31 years, Gene; her wonderful sisters, Jean and husband Richard, Patsy and husband Gerald, Lois and husband Monte; and her five children, Lynn, Michael and wife Judy, Sandra, David and wife Debi, and Kathryn and husband Bradley. She is also survived by her husband's four sons, Gene and wife Christina, David and wife Kathryn, Mark, Matt and wife Jen; 14 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren, as well as many extended family and friends. A reception in Mary's honor will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer's Association at www.alz.org/join_the_cause_donate.asp
