Noreen Baker, beloved wife of the late Fred Baker, passed away peacefully while surrounded by her family at the Haven Care Centre in Medicine Hat on Monday, July 1, 2019, at the age of 90 years. Left to cherish her memory are her children, Jim (Dorothy) Baker, Linda (Randy) Lehr, Tom (Darlene) Baker and daughter-in-law, Andrea Baker; grandchildren, Julie (Derek) Burns (Emily and Troy); Angela (Tyler) Grafftas (Noelle, Nathan, Riley and Tracy); Mona Baker and Owen Baker; Scott (Mandy) Lehr (Meranda, Niklas and Markus); Craig (Nicole) Lehr (Cash and Maddison); Rochelle (Tommy) Dickie (Jaxon, Justin and Jared) and Shelley (Ross) Weimer (Heidi); sister, Toni Frieburg (Jim Luco) as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Noreen was predeceased by her husband, Fred; parents, Joe and Clara Hurst; son, Rick Baker as well as her sister, Audrey Anderson. Noreen was raised on the family farm in the Piapot area. While there she fell in love and married Fred. His work took them on the road with a seismic truck and trailer. Having four children in their travels. They eventually settled in Calgary for school. Later they moved to Medicine Hat and from there to a farm on highway #3. Noreen loved it there! Always baking for family and friends... the coffee was always hot. So Fred could retire, Noreen went to college renewing her secretarial schooling from years before and then took a job at a trailer sales. Her greatest love was her grand and great-grandchildren as they brought such joy to her. Noreen moved to South Country and then to Haven Care Centre where she became very close to the nurses. They were like family to her and they treated her like family. Noreen always put family first and she will be forever missed. A private time of remembrance will be held.
We are so sorry to hear of Noreen's passing. I will always remember her smile and good heart. She made everyone feel welcome when you stopped in. I hope your good memories will help you in the coming days. We are thinking of you all.
Linda, Randy and family. Our deepest condolences to you all at this very difficult time. It is sad to see a family go, but to know she was well loved and cared for brings great comfort to all. Life will never be the same. Knowing she is at peace and reunited with your father and brother with help ease the sadness. Thinking of you all.

Heartfelt sympathy to all. I always enjoyed Noreen and Audrey’s visits when they had a girls day out...and “not shopping”! Always a genuine smile and giving heart.
