Beth Anne Baker

Beth Anne Baker

December 1960 ~ October 2021

Beth was born in Waukegan, Illinois to Benjamin and Barbara Shlemon. She passed away at the
age of 60 after a long battle with cancer. She lived in Florida for a large portion of her life where
she obtained a degree in Business Management and pursued a profession in restaurant
management before settling on a career in probation. She served in law enforcement for
approximately 23 years working in Polk County, Florida, Tuolumne County, California, and
finally Stanislaus County, California where she retired in 2013.
Beth was a big supporter of her children and family. She had no trouble making friends with her
optimistic and magnetic personality—she was a person loved by all. Beth loved her dogs Keno
and Little Dog. She enjoyed spending her free time gambling, gardening, travelling, and
watching sports, especially her Chicago Cubs and Oakland A’s.
She is survived by her husband Brian Baker; children Haley Baker and Joseph Baker; siblings
Steve Shlemon, Chris Shlemon, David Shlemon, and Amy Schafer. Beth was preceded in death
by her parents.
A celebration of life service will be held at Allen Mortuary on Saturday, November 6, 2021, at
10:00 AM.

    I have so many great memories of our time together at fIU. We got into some stuff together and we always came out of it laughing! Here’s to you my dear friend, my life is much richer for having you in it.
