Debra Carroll Baker

The family of Debra Carroll Baker (nee Robertson), born August 27, 1955 is extremely sad to announce her passing on December 13, 2009 after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Deb passed away peacefully in the care of family and friends at the Royal Jubilee Hospice.

She is survived by her beloved husband Cory, mother Lil, brother Terry, daughters Shawna Beaupre (Patrick), Megan Schultz, step sons Jody Baker and Lindsay Baker and 4 treasured grandchildren Ben, Noah, Abby (Shawna), and Hayden (Megan). She is predeceased by her father Ervin Robertson. Deb was born in Calgary and moved around before eventually settling in greater Victoria.

Deb was the “best daughter and mother ever and was very much loved”. She enjoyed walking her dog Buster, traveling especially trips to Las Vegas and Mexico, spending time at her beautiful house and garden, being with family, and having fun with family and friends. Deb touched the lives of many people with her smile, laughter, sly jokes, unconditional love, generosity, and maintained her trademark sense of humor throughout her ordeal. She worked at Sullivan’s Barber shop in Langford for many years and made many very close friends who have supported her unconditionally to the end.

There will be a celebration of Debs life at the family house in Langford on January 16, 2010, 1pm to 5pm. Please phone (250) 744 5416 or email dcbaker@shaw.ca for details on the celebration.

The family requests in lieu of flowers that donations be made to SPCA, where Deb found Buster. The family would also like to thank the many people, especially the community care providers and those at hospice, for their support and comfort.
