Helen Jane Baker – devoted mother, grandmother, sister and servant — went home to her eternal home on Friday, Dec. 27, at the age of 81.
She was born on April 29, 1938, to the late Charles B. and Marion Still. She was raised in Lambertville, where she spent most of her adult life. She worked as an aide at West Amwell School for over 20 years where she also drove a school bus.
Helen Jane was preceded in death by her late husband C. Wayne Baker. She is survived by her son Christopher W. Baker and his wife Beverly of Doylestown, and son Curtis W. Baker and Pam Stoy of Ewing, N.J.; grandchildren Bryant and his wife Hannah, Carissa, Kyle and Katelyn and her fiancée George; great grandchildren Malachi, Drayson and Mia; sister Sue McCusker and her husband Tom of Levittown, and many nieces, cousins, and friends.
Helen Jane was a great friend to many, and was always willing to serve any and all in need. She loved to spend time with her family and friends, and enjoyed traveling to various places, many times to serve others. She was a volunteer at the Hunterdon Medical Center for many years, served on an advisory board for Philips-Barber, was involved with International Students Inc. at Princeton University, volunteered for Meals on Wheels, as well as serving with the Interfaith Hospitality Network. She thoroughly enjoyed sitting on her porch in Lambertville greeting anyone who walked past.

Her family will receive guests and visitors at the church on 31 N. Union St. from 9 to 10:45 a.m.. with the memorial service to follow at 11.
