Marilyn is daughter of the late Albert and Ruth Baker. She has two brothers, the late Gene Baker and Dr. Raymond Baker, and one sister, Sharon Bloom. She passed away peacefully Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at 82. Marilyn was born in Logan County, Ohio at home on October 25, 1938. She graduated from Indian Lake High School in 1956. She was a retired registered nurse at University Hospital of Cincinnati. She met her husband on a blind date, while in college in Columbus. They were married 48 years. Whenever she could, she loved to travel. They visited Europe on their 25th Anniversary. Upon retirement, together they visited many places across the United States including Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. She was most fascinated learning about Native American cultures. She loved sewing, quilting, gardening, reading, and "most of all," her family. She loved being independent and could not live without joy in her life. Her mind was always “thinking.” Being happy and passionate about life defined whatever she did: nursing, sewing, and learning. Marilyn enjoyed being part of “Ladies who Lunch.” Going out and having fun made her happy. She leaves behind a family who will cherish and miss her forever. Visitation will be Friday, November 20, from 12-2 p.m., at the Spring Grove Funeral Home, 4389 Spring Grove Ave. A brief funeral service will begin at 2 p.m., followed immediately by a graveside service at Spring Grove Cemetery.
