Memories & Candles
Marlee was a true character and was sincerely one of a kind. But, she didn't know it. She was naturally glamorous and didn't accept the limitations put on her by society. She was kind and gracious to everyone. I don't think I ever heard her say an unkind word about another human being.
She will be sorely missed.

Parker and Gabe:
You probably do not remember me, but I met you both at some Baker reunions in Kemp, Texas, when we were all much younger. Your grandfather, my uncle Paul Baker brought you to Kemp for some of the family reunions at Aunt Alice's home. I read your mother's obituary. She sounded like a wonderful and extremely talented person. I wish I had had the opportunity to meet her. Please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss.

Parker and Gabe,
My condolences to you and your family.
Reading about your mother's long and interesting life and work makes me wish I had known her, and both of you as well. (I was at UT Law School 1976-1979, but we still missed each other, Parker.)
Although I never met your mother, I heard about her and Jan and Uncle Paul all my life from my own mother, Norma Gene Baker Ross (now 86 and living in a nursing home in Brownwood,

Parker and Gabe: I share your sadness at the loss of your mother. She was a remarkable person and a polymath who did so many things superbly , including raising you two -- and she did all that at time when opportunities for women were so much more limited than today.
I remember her many small kindnesses to me and my brother over the years, including letting us in the back room of Senator Jordan's office, which opened onto the vast Senate attic, which we used to explore on our lunch hours as pages.
I'll miss her too.
