Born in North Carolina and raised in Richmond, Virginia, she graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in Richmond and obtained her bachelorís degree in elementary education from Madison College. She taught elementary school in Richmond and after her marriage to Sidney Jackson Baker, taught elementary students at Eastern State Hospital. Annís heart was in Williamsburg, where she resided for over 55 years, and was a charter member of the Williamsburg Community Hospital Auxiliary. She was a dedicated library assistant at the College of William and Mary and the Williamsburg Regional Library for many years until her retirement.
Ann was the kindest person one could ever meet, and never met a stranger. She was intelligent, easy-going, and had a great sense of humor. She allowed her children and grandchildren to follow their own paths without judgment, always celebrating their joys and accomplishments. Her favorite activities were reading, enjoying lunch with her friends and family, and spending holidays and special times with her children and grandchildren. She loved her grandchildren dearly and reveled in their accomplishments: ìNonnieî was a special part of their lives.
Ann maintained her wit and concern for others until her final moments. She spent her final hours with daughter Holly and her friends Polly and Charlotte before she quietly went to heaven. Ann will surely be embraced by angels, because she was an angel herself and will be missed dearly by all who knew and loved her.
