Teddi Baker, 62, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by loved ones on Sunday, Aug. 4, 2019.
Teddi was born on August 23, 1956.
She resided with her loving life partner Les McLean in Eureka Township, St. Croix Falls. Teddi graduated from Spooner High School and then pursued her secondary education through WITC in Rice Lake and New Richmond. She was a valued employee at the 3M Company as a senior Engineering Aide for 29 years, additionally helping others by organizing multiple fund-raising events through the 3M Company. She commented often on the high regard and appreciation she felt for her coworkers and superiors during her tenure. She loved her job and will be greatly missed by many within the organization.
“From her mother Teddi inherited a wonderful artistic ability, a deep love of family, and unquestioned sense of honor,” her family said. “She had a soft spot for all our warm and fuzzy friends seen as she cared for her horse, cats, dog, and all the animals and birds surrounding her home.” Teddi was a lover of music, reading, gardening, and riding on her four-wheeler, “Tweety Bird.” When she wasn’t racing Les on her four-wheeler, she was cheering for the Minnesota Wild, going to games, and proudly displaying her Wild plaque signed by all the players.
Teddi was preceded in death by her father, William James Eary; her mother, Dolores Ann Johnson; her brother, William James Baker; and her stepfather, George (Russ) Baker.
Teddi is survived by the love of her life, Les McLean; her sisters, Cindy, Melissa, and Georgia; her stepchildren, Jody, Jon, and Mark; her stepgrandchildren, Cortney, Joel, and Jon Jr; her nieces and nephews, Sean, Shannon, Shane, Justin, Diana, Ben, Crystal, Jason, Jasmine, and Lea; several grand-nieces and grand-nephews; and many other extended family members. “Her warmth, compassion and love will be greatly missed by all,” her family said.
A celebration of life will be held at noon on Friday, Aug. 23, at Grandstrand Funeral Home in Osceola, with Dr. Kevin Schumann officiating.
Visitation will take place for one hour prior to the service.
