Tribute & Message From The Family


Mary Grace Allen shed her body and returned home to the universe at age 95 on March 11, 2020 at Abington, PA. She was born Mary Grace Wolfe at home in Royersford, PA on September 2, 1924. She is predeceased by her two husbands, Frank H. Baker, Jr. and John F. Allen, one son, Don Baker, one daughter, Allison McCool, and most of her friends and family.

Widowed the first time at age 38 with four young children, she went back to college, received a Master's Degree from Temple University, and taught elementary school for 20 years in the Philadelphia school system.

She is survived by her son Chuck Baker, daughter Katie Alt, daughter-in-law Esther Baker, sister Jean Good, grandchildren Ryan Biederman and Raquel Alt, and numerous nieces and nephews.

She pursued many interests in her long life, including quilting, travel, and volunteering in her senior years, and was known for her desire to help and support others, whether family or friends.

According to her wishes she has been cremated and no services will be held, but a memorial gathering is expected to be held at a later date. Family services are entrusted under the care of Craft-Givnish of Abington, Inc., 215-659-2000.
