Eva Elizabeth Baker, 100, of Whaleyville, Maryland, passed away on Thursday, March 22, 2018 at the home of her granddaughter, Carolyn Suttmiller (Bob).

Born in Fenwick Island on Nov. 18, 1917, Mrs. Baker’s most important role was that of a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great grandmother.

Mrs. Baker and her husband owned and operated the Pine Cone Inn restaurant in Whaleyville, Maryland. She was an active member of Whaleyville United Methodist Church and the United Methodist Ladies Society.

In her spare time she loved visitors to chat, play cards with, and cook for. Her family said a person could not enter her home without being fed, hungry or not.

Mrs. Baker was an inspiration to both family and friends. Her kind heart and loving personality will be missed by all.
