It is with great sadness that the family of Aura Baker announces her passing on March 19, 2023, at the age of 107.
Aura Marguerite Baker was born on May 3, 1915, in the farmhouse of her parent's 100-acre farm in Victoria Square, Ontario, just north of Toronto.
When Aura was six, she began attending school in nearby Markham township and attended High School in Richmond Hill.
She enjoyed playing baseball and was a member of the "Canadian Girls in Training" and the "Junior Farmers of Ontario." She also enjoyed singing and playing piano.
On August 31, 1935, she married Harold Murray Baker. They lived as a married couple for sixty-six wonderful years, and the pair shared their love with four children, Norma, Shirley, Bruce, and Beverley, until Murray's death on February 10, 2002.

She is survived by her children, Norma (Don) Clayton, Shirley (Duane) Mullen, Bruce (Carol) Baker, and Beverley (David) Deeks, and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and even great-great-grandchildren.
