Obituary - Christine Baker

Christine Baker, 61, passed away on Sunday, May 16, 2021 at her home in Sheldon, MO. She was born October 13, 1959 in Vernal, UT to Weldon E. and Delores (Robbins) Wooley. She was united in marriage to Tim Baker on September 1, 1979 in Nevada, MO and he survives of the home.

Christine had many jobs in her life, but one of the last jobs she had was being the manager of McDonald’s in El Dorado Springs. She worked there for many years and retired about eight years ago. She was like a mother to many that worked with her. She was a hunter and loved to catfish and set lines with her husband Tim and family every summer. She was the glue to almost every family gathering that was had. The family would always laugh at countless text messages they would receive to make sure they would be on time for family dinners. She made the best potato salad, and her sweet tea was always a hot commodity. She was the best mom, wife, sister, aunt, grandma, and friend to so many people.

In addition to her husband Tim, she is survived by two sons; Randy Baker (Bobbie), El Dorado Springs, MO and Corey Baker (Stacey) of Nevada, Mo; One daughter, Bambi Waggoner (Bill), El Dorado Springs, MO; eight grandchildren, Brayden Baker of the home, Harmon Baker, Corissa Baker, Randy Baker, Jr., Rebecca Jackson (Levi), Gabriella, Sieleman, Zachary Waggoner, and Valerie Waggoner; two great-grandchildren, Killian Jackson, and Kennedy Jackson; siblings, Arlinda Van, Vickie Williams (John), Barbara Stavropoulos, Claudia Stacy (Steve), Wade Wooley, Joseph Lewis (Shelia); many nieces, nephews, extended family and special friends, as well as three other special family members; Allisa Baker, Daniel and Kimberly Long and family. She was preceded in death by her mother Delores Lewis; one brother, Conway Lewis; brother-in-law Charlie Van; mother-in-law, Virginia Baker, and her father-in-law, Jesse Baker.
