Mary Clara Baker, 88, a longtime resident of Friendswood, TX passed away on Thursday, May 27, 2021.
Mary was a great nurturer who loved her family. The love and servant heart she had grew beyond her family to all she came in contact with.
She will be remembered for the joy she spread to others which was fueled by her relationship with Jesus.
