FRANKFORT — Mildred A. (Littlefield) Baker has gone to her heavenly home on Jan. 13, 2023.

Born on Oct 27, 1933, in Searsport, Mildred was brought up in the Prospect area and met the love of her life, Earl Baker, at a baseball game in Winterport. They married just before Earl was sent overseas to Germany. Upon his return they built the home that they have lived in for the last 70 years.

Mildred was very proud of raising her two sons, Randy and Ronald, into wonderful adult men. Raising two boys certainly had challenges, such as finding dirt bikes in the living room being repaired on the carpet. After the boys were older, she went to work in Searsport at the Bayview Boarding Home, where she worked for 12 years. She also worked tirelessly beside her sister Ruth Stone helping to organize the West Frankfort Fire Department.

She was predeceased by her parents, Walter and Bessie (Seekins) Littlefield; her son Ronald Baker; her brothers, Albert, Hershel and Walter Jr.; and her sisters, Ruth Stone, Alice White, Ida Mitchell, Clara Hendricks and Lucretia Gamble.

She is survived by her older son, Randy Baker and wife Althea; grandson Brent Baker and wife Kristi and their children, Memphis and Declan, all from Frankfort; grandson Alex Baker and wife Susan and their children, Isaac, Ethan and Cassandra, all from Gray; a special sister-in-law, Judy Littlefield of Prospect; and many nieces and nephews who were all very dear to her heart.

A memorial service will be held for the family in the spring at the Pilgrims Home Cemetery in Monroe.
