Obituary for Feb. 25, 2013

Marne Baines

Baker City, 1949-2013

Marne Baines, 64, of Baker City, died where she had wished, at her home, on Feb. 20, 2013.

Her memorial service will be Thursday, Feb. 28, at 10 a.m. at the Missouri Flat Grange at Cedar Street and Hughes Lane in Baker City. Friends are invited to join the family for a reception to be held immediately after the service at the Missouri Flat Grange.

Diagnosed with fourth-stage cancer on Nov. 9, 2012, Marne had gone under the care of  Heart and Home Hospice soon after her diagnosis. Marne was totally at peace. She had no fear of death. She saw death as an open door one went through and that door closed behind you. A devout Christian, Marne passed serenely into a joyous afterlife where there is no more sickness and death.

Born Feb. 19, 1949, at St.  Petersburg, Fla.,  Marne grew up in the South. Most of her life was spent as a caregiver. In her early 20s Marne went on an adventure from Alabama to Nevada. She moved to Baker City from Gardnerville, Nev., in 2002.

Survivors include her husband, Tom Baines of Baker City; her oldest son, Ronald Skipper of Baker City; her youngest son, Wade Skipper of Reno, Nev.; a granddaughter, Haley Skipper of Sparks, Nev.; a grandson, Elijah Skipper of Reno; and a sister, Jeanne Kirkland and family of Raleigh, N.C.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Elizabeth Solomon, a nurse; and her father, Roy Solomon, a World War II veteran.

Memorial contributions may be made to Heart and Home Hospice through Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home, P.O. Box 543, Halfway, OR 97834.
