She was born to George and Clara Palmer Baker on May 31, 1916. She attended the Dugout Schools and other school and graduated from Culbertson High School.

She enjoyed many years ranching and farming in the Andes area with her husband, Fred. She was a substitute postmistress at the Andes Post Office. She was happiest when she was cooking and canning for her family and friends. Her chokecherry syrup will be greatly missed.
