Faith was born in Burlington, VT in 1941 to Forest and Ruth (Farnsworth) Baker. She graduated from Silverlake High School in Kingston, MA in 1959, where she was known for her dress making skills and beautiful smile.
Faith loved living in the countryside of Schuylerville, surrounded by mountains, fresh air, and green fields. She had a rich religious life, love for music, and enjoyed nature walks. She was “Mimi” to “her favorite Grandson”, Jackson. Together they spent invaluable quality time on backyard adventures, sandbox construction projects, and coloring masterpieces. Faith had a gentle and compassionate nature and made a point to extend kindness to everyone she met.
She was predeceased by her sister, Ann, of Vermont.

Her family would like to thank Dr. Valentine and her team, Dr. Rashid, Dr. Daraban, and the incredible staff at Saratoga Hospital and the Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center for their exceptional and compassionate care.
