Gates, NY: Marguerite (Mickey) Baker, 74, passed peacefully on Saturday, January 2, 2021.
She was born on March 31, 1946 and graduated from Greece Olympia High School in 1964. She married Joseph Baker on September 4, 1965 in Rochester, NY.
Mickey found the most joy in taking care of her family. She never missed a sporting event or activity for her children and carried on that tradition with her grandchildren. Above all, she enjoyed being a wife, mother, and nana.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 53 years, Joseph; her father, Stanley Jerzak; and her brothers Frank Poulton and Charles Poulton.
She is survived by her mother, Edith Jerzak; children Lisa (Nick) DiFalco, Michael Baker, Kristine (John) Brennan, and Joseph (Gary) Baker; grandchildren McKenzie Baker (Matthew), Mikaela Baker, Thomas Couse, Ryan (Kelly) Couse, Kimberly Couse, Clare Brennan, and Catherine Brennan; great-grandson Grayson Couse, brothers Martin Jerzak and Peiter (Mary) Jerzak; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
A memorial is planned for Spring 2021. In lieu of flowers, kindly consider donations to the Joe and Mickey Baker Scholarship Fund to help support a graduate of Gates-Chili High School that pursues education in a skilled trade, to 402 Ransdall Court, Indianapolis, IN 46227.
