Obituary

Linda K. Baker, 67, of Independence, MO, passed away Thursday, June 6, 2019. A visitation will be held from 6-8:00pm, Wednesday, June 12th with a funeral service at 10:00am on Thursday, June 13th, both at Speaks Suburban Chapel, 18020 E 39th St., Independence, MO 64055. Interment will follow at Mound Grove Cemetery.

Linda was born November 23, 1951 in Maryville, MO to Kenneth R. and Anna A. (Rodrick) Williams. In July of 1972, she caught the eye of a young Larry Baker, newly home from serving in the Navy. By December of 1972, they were married.

Linda was also a member of the Restoration Branch Church of the RLDS. She loved her days of gardening, sewing and crafting, reading and working at the public library.

Linda’s life was about connecting with people and serving them. She did it well and with all she had. But nothing compared to her time as wife, mom, and “Nana”. Her family was her greatest joy.

Linda is preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband of 47 years, Lawrence W. Baker, Jr.; her children, Lawrence III (Laura) of Lee’s Summit and Christine (Daniel) Tate of Independence; grandchildren, Lana Baker, Connor Baker, Graham Baker, Owen Tate, and 2 more on the way; as well as, her brother, Kenneth Jr., of Maryville, MO; other extended family and many dearly loved friends. Flowers or contributions to the family are welcome.

I am writing to give your family comfort from the scriptures. I promise you, the scriptures say YOU WILL SEE LINDA BAKER AGAIN ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES.

God has resurrected humans in the past
John 11:39-44
39 Jesus said: “Take the stone away.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to him: “Lord, by now he must smell, for it has been four days.” 40 Jesus said to her: “Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”t 41 So they took the stone away. Then Jesus raised his eyes heavenwardu and said: “Father, I thank you that you have heard me.42 True, I knew that you always hear me; but I spoke on account of the crowd standing around, so that they may believe that you sent me.”v 43 When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: “Lazʹa·rus, come out!”w 44 The man who had been dead came out with his feet and hands bound with wrappings, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them: “Free him and let him go.”

God is eager to do it again
1 Corinthians 15:26
26 And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.b

Job 14: 14,15
14 If a man dies, can he live again?n I will wait all the days of my compulsory service Until my relief comes.o15 You will call, and I will answer you.p You will long* for the work of your hands.


Sincerely,

Jeanne Strange

My heart just broke. Deepest sympathy to Larry and kids. I remember spending the night with her and keeping her up half the night trying to convince her Tinker Bell was in the room. She will be missed.
