CROSSLAKE — Mary Ellen Reynolds Baker, 67, Crosslake

After a brave battle with cancer Mary Ellen passed away peacefully Saturday, Jan. 7, 2012.

Mary Ellen loved living out her retirement in Crosslake; she loved gardening, cooking, boating and meat raffles with “the gang” on Sundays! Mary Ellen is survived by her husband, Gary Baker; daughter, Dena (Curt) Payonk; three stepchildren, Randy (Sarah) Baker, Minneapolis, Leslie (Ron) Renee, Pine Grove, Calif., Andrea Adams, Minneapolis; sister, Patricia (Norm) Kapcia, Houston; niece, Ruth Kapcia, Seattle; brother, John Reynolds, Tucson, Ariz.; great friend, Kathy Williams, Nisswa; 10 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. In lieu of a service, Mary Ellen requested a small party in her honor when the “snowbirds” come back, sometime in the spring/summer. Thanks everyone for all the support during this time.
