Gae Dawn Baker, age 67, of New Castle, DE, went home to be with her God on Wednesday, September 16, 2020, surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Morgantown, WV on November 5, 1952, she was a daughter of the late Clarence E. McIntyre and Betty L. (Guseman) McIntyre Ferriola. At the age of 10, Gae’s family moved to Delaware. She married the love of her life, Sidney Baker, Sr., on April 6, 1974. Gae was employed by PHI, Inc. as a Senior Billing Specialist, retiring after 43 years. She was always her family’s biggest supporter, from the football field to the wrestling mat to the ice rink. This continued with her grandchildren at dance recitals and hockey, baseball, field hockey and basketball games. Gae was a proud military mom. She was an avid Disney lover and enjoyed many trips with her family. Above all, Gae enjoyed spending time with family and friends, especially around the pool or at the beach.
In addition to her parents, Gae was preceded in death by her grandson, Robert Baker; father-and-mother-in-law, John and Helen Baker; and brother-in-law, Troy Baker. She is survived by her loving husband of 46 years, Sidney J. Baker, Sr.; children, Joe Baker (Heather) and Michael Baker (Juneann), both of New Castle; grandchildren, Kameryn, Brianna, Lottie, Kayla and Mikey; siblings, Mark McIntyre (Jackie) and Lori Powell, both of Smyrna; stepfather, Frank Ferriola of New Castle; brothers-in-law, John Dale (Pat) Baker, Jeff Baker, Bill Baker and Steve Baker; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends.
