Linda Swanson Baker
December 1, 1943- December 17, 2018
Linda Baker, 75, of Flagstaff, AZ passed away on December 17, 2018 at the Olivia White Hospice House. Linda was born and raised in southern California. As a child she spent time on her family’s farm in the Palouse country of Washington State. She enjoyed the Palouse so much that she graduated from Washington State University (Go Cougs!) where she made lifelong friends.
Linda lived in Flagstaff for almost 50 years as a homemaker and raised three children. She thoroughly enjoyed traveling, watching college football and reading. She was a member of Eastern Star.
Linda is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 32 years Dr. Malchus Baker, Jr., son Raymond Baker, parents, brother Bruce Swanson, and in-laws. She is survived by her daughters Anne Marie Reed (Wade) and Erika Baker, nephew Blake Swanson of Portland Oregon, sister-in law Beverly Baker of Lake Montezuma, brother-in-law Larry Baker of Carol Stream, IL, and numerous family and friends.
At Linda’s request, there will be no church services. However, there will be a graveside service at Calvary Cemetery on January 14, 2019 at 10:00AM. Her daughters would like to especially thank Northland Hospice, Wadhams Apothecary, cousin Steve Allen, Eleanor Onsae of Avenues of the World, Inc., and Eliza Daley Read for their support during her last years.
