She was born July 2, 1944 in Kansas, the daughter of George Albert and Leta M. (Hand) Pitts. She came with her family out west in 1947. She attended schools in Foster and Crawfordsville.

Pat married young and raised three children while living in Crawfordsvile. That marriage ended later in divorce. Pat has been married the last 20 years to Donald Baker, living in Albany seventeen of those years.

Pat enjoyed garage sale-ing and getting out. Don deeply loved her and pushed her wheelchair anywhere she and he wanted to go. Pat also enjoyed getting her family together and was a great cook. She loved jewelry and the little things in life. Her last days were spent as trips to and from dialysis with her husband Don. Pat’s greatest joys came from spending time with her granddaughter, Shannon Patricia.
