Obituary

Christine A. Baker, 70, of Waldoboro, passed away peacefully on July 27, 2019 at St. Andrew's Village after a period of declining health. Christine was born on October 25, 1948 in Rumford, Maine to the late Malcolm E. Stewart and Pauline (Perry) Stewart. She attended schools in Rumford, graduating in 1967 from Stephens High School. While attending school, Christine became a candy striper at Rumford Community Hospital, going on to study and obtain her CNA license. From there, she moved to Portland holding a few odd jobs before returning to the healthcare field at Portland City Hospital and several area nursing homes. Christine then moved to New Hampshire, studying at cosmetology school. After completing that, she returned to Portland where she met Robert L. Baker.

In 1970 Christine and Robert were married. Robert's work eventually lead them to Waldoboro where they made their home for over 30 years. They had one daughter together, Robyn L. (Baker) Sykes. Christine held several different jobs in the area before finally returning to her true calling in the home health field. Over a period of approximately 40 years Christine used her nursing skills to comfort and care for people whenever and wherever she could all over Maine. Christine will always be remembered for her energy, her generosity of spirit and time, her giving nature, and her unique sense of humor, and especially her unwavering commitment to doing whatever she wanted, whenever she wanted. Christine volunteered for the Channel 10 Auction for many years, was an avid reader, enjoyed music: particularly Elton John and ABBA. She enjoyed traveling having been to Florida visiting family and a special trip with her grandson, Wyatt and daughter Robyn to Disney World, and most recently Hawaii. She also traveled all over the United States including Alaska and Hawaii, all up and down the east coast and especially enjoyed her trip to France and England. There was certainly never a dull moment with Christine as you could certainly depend on her to liven any situation with laughter and quick witty banter. One of Christine;s favorite quotes is from Auntie Mame, "Live Live Live! Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!". She especially enjoyed her family, particularly watching her grandson, Wyatt, growing up in theater and being a central part of both his life as well as her other grandson, Israel Novak (Kevin).

Christine is survived by her mother, Pauline Davis of Waldoboro, Daughter Robyn L. Sykes her husband Michael and their son Wyatt all of Waldoboro, Foster daughter Patty F. Carriere and her son, Israel Novak (Kevin) of Waldoboro, step-brother Jeffery M. Davis and his wife June and their children of Gorham, her former husband, Robert L. Baker, of Windsor, and many other extended family members and friends who loved her dearly. She was predeceased by her father, Malcolm E. Stewart, her brother John M. Stewart, step-father Frederick C. Davis, and a dear friend, Susan DeCosta.

At Christine's request there will be no funeral services. A private memorial and remembrance of her life will be planned at a later date. The family also wishes to extend a special thank you to Comfort Keepers staff as well as staff at Zimmerli Pavilion at St. Andrew's Village, also those who cared for her privately Kay Carrothers, and Ellie Busby, for their dedication to her quality of life and with a loving touch.

I made sure to tell you what you meant to me before your mind began to wander. There were so many things that I wanted you to know before it was too late. Not that I knew ‘that’ time was coming, or at least so soon, but more because I didn’t know if you knew how important having you in my life was . The looks you gave, the things you said, how you said them and most importantly when you said them. God how I looked forward to spending time with you. You were the person in our family that made the world a magical place. Whether you were amusing me when my mother was sick by teaching me to cross stitch (a deer that i gave my mother), taking me to a zoo in Island Falls where llamas ate the grain filled ice cream cones I tried to hold above their heads, The Rockland Lobster Festival, camp, Duck Puddle, water fights with the garden hose throughout the house, teaching me to drive a stick shift despite my temper tantrums, or always welcoming me into your home no matter what when I just needed to be in that magical world you had always created. There will never be someone like you again. The world will never know what it is missing. However, I will.
