Travis Ann Baker, went to be with the Lord on April 22, 2020. in Anchorage, Alaska
She will be laid to rest at Angelus Memorial Park in Anchorage, Alaska but due to COVID-19 directives, the family has decided to postpone a celebration of her amazing life until mandates are lifted.
Travis was born in International Falls, Minnesota on May 27, 1939 to Edwin F. Dahl and Alice True (Larson) Dahl. She attended Falls High School and later graduated from Littlefork High School in 1957. She moved to Alaska on February 27, 1964, exactly one month before the '64 quake. She worked as a waitress at Bernice's Cafe, The D&D, and The Cheechako. In 1967, she married Richard Wayne Baker and they moved to Eagle River. In 1983, they moved to Sterling, Alaska and she has resided in the Longmere Lake area for the past 37 years.
Without a doubt her heart revolved around her family. Everything she did was to make life better for those she loved. Even her hobbies were ultimately done for them. Working on her flowers in the greenhouse and time she spent working in her yard meant a nice place for the grandkids to play. The time she enjoyed quilting turned into a chance to make loved ones a special gift. And one and all benefited from her love of cooking and baking! When anyone stopped by for a visit there was a cup of coffee and a plate of cookies on the table before you could even sit down. She opened her house to loved ones and strangers and made each person feel they were special. There was no question about her gift from the Lord...hospitality...and you only had to go to her house one time, and you would feel it!
You could open her freezer and see gallon jars filled to the brim with every cookie imaginable! And New Year's Eve would start the year over again with polish sausage and sauerkraut. Traditions we have all come to love!
"Most importantly, was her belief that the only thing that really matters in this world is a relationship with the Lord and the salvation of her children, grandchildren and those she loved. Mom was the definition of what a mother should be, with her example of unwavering support, self-sacrificing actions, and unconditional love. She showed the love of Christ, not just in words but in deeds.
