Virginia B. Baker
June 02, 1920 – May 15, 2010

Virginia B. Baker passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 15th 2010.
Originally she was schooling to become a Registered Nurse, and changed career paths working as a Bookkeeper for a period of time before becoming a full-time Homemaker.
As a homemaker she possessed a range of cooking, and baking skills from her famous biscuits, to the absolute best coconut cream pie. All cooking was based off with a Southern style. Kentucky Fried, or Popeye’s couldn’t hold a candle to her fried chicken. It was always guaranteed that if you came to visit you would never leave her table hungry.
She enjoyed sewing free hand or from patterns to make clothes, knitting, and crocheting but quilting was her true calling.
She had a love of nature that included the enjoyment of all plants, trees, and flowers. The different birds which were attracted to this environment were also a source of enjoyment for her. Though her greatest gift was just making some stick or seed grow into something beautiful.
Virginia was preceded in death by her husband James A. Baker Sr., sister Mildred Goodwin, and grandson H.B. Chapman III Barry. She is survived by her daughter Virginia D. Chapman of Mineral VA. , son James A. Baker Jr. of Fairfield CA. , grand daughter Karen L. Armstrong of Mineral VA. And also leaves behind a great granddaughter, and great-great grandchildren. Additionally she is survived by her two brothers Alonza G Badgett, and Ray C. Badgett of Louisa VA. , nephews, nieces, friends, and acquaintances in both California, and Virginia.
Per Virginia’s request, visitation will be held for family members on Friday May 21st from 10:00am to 11:00am at Woodward Funeral Home located at 200 Fredericksburg Avenue in Louisa VA 23093. Interment will follow at approximately 11:00am at the Hillcrest Cemetery located approximately 1.9 miles WNW of the town of Louisa.
