Shirley Lorene BAKER Sweetser was my maternal aunt. The funeral card says she died in Fayetteville, Arkansas but it was actually in Springdale, Arkansas. She was staying at Circle of Life Hospice.

From the first week of June to the last day of December in 2010 three Baker siblings passed away. There were fifteen of them altogether now eight remain. Death is a part of life, but when it comes one after another with barely a moment’s rest the grief can become overwhelming.
