Robert Louis Baker

In Loving Memory

Robert Louis Baker

12/13/1936 - 12/22/2014

Robert Louis Baker, 78, of Friendswood passed away suddenly on December 22, 2014 in Plano following a massive heart attack while visiting relatives.

 

Born December 13, 1936 in Taylor to Howard O. “Pat” Baker and Rosalie Melasky Baker, Bob graduated from Taylor High School in 1955.  He served in the U.S. Army and graduated in 1964 from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in math.  In college, he met Grace while both worked at the state mental hospital.  They married in 1964 in Austin, and moved to Friendswood in 1967.

 

Specializing in control systems, Bob spent his career as a computer programmer working in the Houston area at General Electric, TRW, Ferranti International and Triconex.

 

He was an active member at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, serving on the vestry as senior and junior warden, and with the Brotherhood of St. Andrew.  He could be seen changing the air conditioning filters, organizing a poker fund-raiser, or years ago mowing the church lawn and making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday.  He was a youth group sponsor and active in the early Cursillo movement.  In Friendswood, Bob was a reliable Community Prayer Breakfast volunteer and attendee, and also was involved with Meals on Wheels.  In the 1970’s, Bob and Grace enjoyed square dancing.

 

Bob loved retirement, often saying how much he liked getting up late, not doing much and compensating for it by quitting early.  He had a green thumb and could be seen driving his 1988 red Toyota pickup to the nursery, and to weekly bridge and poker games.  He was a conflicted Astros fan and a lifelong Longhorn fan.

 

Going out to eat was a frequent pastime for Bob.  He saved his cholesterol points for Saturday morning breakfasts and never deviated from a strongly held opinion that Louie Mueller Barbecue in Taylor is still the world’s best.  He also enjoyed planning itineraries and traveling, especially going on 20 plus cruises with friends Joan and Jerry Gilson of Kansas City.

 

Bob was a true liberal, open-minded about other positions, accepting and quick to respect others.  He was considerate, wise and believed in leaving things better than you found them.  Bob was a role model for what it means to be a real man: a great soul mate to his wife, much-loved grandpa and a wonderful parent to his children and adopted daughter Laura Borda and husband Guillermo of Malibu, CA and their sons Julian and Sebastian.

 

His legacy is one of humility, humor, reliability and authenticity.

 

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother David.

 

Bob is survived by his wife of 50 years, Grace Newell Baker; daughter Leah Jones and husband Sid of Friendswood; son Aaron Baker and wife Lori of Plano, and four grandchildren: Elizabeth Baker, Kyle Jones, Catherine Baker and David Jones.  He also leaves a brother, Howard and wife Vanette of Round Rock, and many beloved nephews, niece and cousins.

 

The Rev. Geoffrey Gwynne will lead a memorial service on Friday, January 2, 2015 at 11:00 A.M. at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, 1207 W. Winding Way in Friendswood.  Innichment will take place at a later date; meanwhile, memorial donations to the church columbarium project would be appreciated instead of flowers.

​Ruth Esther Mitchell Cox

In Loving Memory

​Ruth Esther Mitchell Cox

5/6/1933 - 12/18/2014

Ruth Esther Mitchell Cox, 81 of Pearland, TX passed away on December 18, 2014. She was born on May 6, 1933 in El Campo, TX to Dock Mitchell and Ivy Barnett Mitchell.

To previous marriages, she had two children Gerald Wayne Roberts and Cathy Beck. Due to a car accident, she was forced to live with a prosthetic device for most of her adult years. Being a strong person, she fought to regain her active life. She proved people were wrong about her working as a car hop again when she accepted the challenge to work at Princess Drive Inn in Houston. Her customers were amazed.

As a responsible care giver, she cared for many of the children in her church and neighborhood. They are adults today but still remember being at her house and the things they did.

The last few months, after the death of her husband of fifty one years, Lige Cox, she has lived at the Windsong Village. After the initial adjustment, she fit in and was known as the lady in the dress. She loved to wear pretty clothes and usually had a pin or flower to match. The last week of her life, she seemed to be the happiest and most content. She shopped for a Christmas gift for Gerald and bought decorations for her room. She had a basket of cookies and candies on her desk for the help at Windsong. She would say “They are so good to me”. She even adored her therapists who put the through her exercises.

This past Sunday at 2:00 P. M., she kept reminding everyone, there would be a Christmas party at Windsong and we must all come. Some of her friends did attend. She was so happy that Gerald came in for the occasion. She was dressed in a red and black Christmas looking dress and had been to the beauty shop to have her hair done. She said she slept with her hands folded on her face so her hair would not get messed up. “Santa sang Christmas songs and she sang along. The highlight of the party was when she opened her present, a pair of pajamas that sad “More Coffee” on the front.

At 6:00 P. M. was the Christmas dinner for her church, The First Church of Pearland. How she loved going to church. She was waiting by the door for someone to get her at least an hour early. She ate the delicious food until she was full and then decided the banana pudding would taste really good, so she had some. When it was time to go, she stated that she was not tired, and it would have been nice to have stayed longer.

The “Going Home” week was a very happy time for Ruth.

Friends are cordially invited to the visitation with the family on Monday, December 22, 2014 at 12:00 P. M. with the funeral service to follow at 1:00 P. M. at the Jeter Memorial Funeral Home Chapel, 311 N. Friendswood Dr., Friendswood, TX 77546 with Rev. Ken Gurley officiating. Interment will follow at a later date at the Houston National Cemetery in Houston, TX., where she will be laid to rest next to her husband.
