Brenda Sue Baker

Brenda Sue Baker, born on December 9, 1946, in Cincinnati, Ohio, passed away on Wednesday, May 8, 2024. Brenda, a devoted mother to Jennifer ‘Jen’ Bryan and James ‘Jimmy’ Baker and was a loving grandmother and great-grandmother.

Brenda led a life filled with love and laughter, cherishing moments spent with her family. She was a dedicated Purchasing Agent for over 40 years at OKI, where she made many life-long friends.

Her inherent talent for creativity shone through her love for sewing, especially after attending a quilting class in order to make a t-shirt quilt for her daughter Jen. Brenda delighted in spending quality time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, often preparing a suitcase full of activities for their time together. Her love extended to her hobbies, including casino visits, shopping sprees, and a keen eye for savings through couponing.

The memory of Brenda will forever bring warmth to the hearts of those who knew her best. She leaves behind her daughter Jennifer ‘Jen’ Bryan; son James ‘Jimmy’ (Kristian) Baker; grandchildren Caitlin (Jacob) Burton, Madalynn Baker, Alyssa Baker, Joshua Bryan, and Jonathan Baker; great-grandchildren Jackson Burton, Braxton Burton, and Dayton Burton; goddaughter, Shannon Carter; and many extended relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents Cecil and Edna (Phelps) Carter, and brothers, Gene Carter and Cecil Carter.
