Obituary for Ella (Lakes) Baker

Ella Lakes Baker of Berea, Kentucky departed this life on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at Baptist Health Richmond at the age of 89.
Ella was born in Jackson Co., Kentucky on September 4, 1929 to Harvey and Anna Lakes. She joined Jesse Baker of Jackson Co. in marriage on July 11 of 1964 and their union was blessed with four daughters. Ella was baptized at Kerby Knob Baptist Church and a longtime member of the church.
Ella was a lifelong homemaker and is lovingly referred to as “Eller” by close friends and family. She enjoyed bluegrass and gospel music, watching Beattyville Church on TV, and was renowned for her sweet tooth. Her silly faces and offers of nourishment and love, and sometimes of jokes and choice words, brought joy and laughter to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Ella was preceded in death by her husband Jesse, her mother and father, her siblings Sid, Della, Alvin, Vernon, and Millard and her daughter, Ida Mae Powell.
Ella is survived by daughters Gracie Mills of Berea, KY; Eddie Belle Miller (and husband Ricky) of Kerby Knob, KY; and Betty Jo Davis (and husband Dave) of Richmond, Ind.; five grandchildren, Janice Powell of Louisville, Ky; Cheyenne Mills (and partner Zach) of Lexington, Ky; Jason Powell (and partner Jenny) of Berea, Ky; Katie Powell of Beltsville, MD; and Ashley Mills of Berea, Ky.
Visitation will be held on Saturday, March 2nd from 1:00 - 3:00 pm at Kerby Knob Baptist Church with funeral services immediately following at 3:00 pm. Brother Eugene Gentry will be officiating.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made at the church to the family
to help with offset expenses.
