Mina Baker Obituary

Mina Marie Hatchell Baker of Rose Hill, NC, departed her earthly life on Wednesday, February 14, 2024.  Born on June 17, 1935, she is the daughter of the late John Bryant and Ruth Elizabeth Edwards Hatchell.  She is also preceded in death by her late husband Bennie Baker; siblings--Durwood Hatchell, Raeford Hatchell, Johnny Bryant Hatchell, Norman Hatchell, Ruth Phillips, Betty Starnes, Adell Hatchell Edwards, Ozell Wells, and Naomi Thompson.

Left to cherish her memory are her children-Benjie Malone and husband Tommy of Teachey and Benjamin Forest "Ben" Baker, Jr. and wife Sherri of Raleigh; grandson-Adam Forest Baker of Charlotte; and sister-Mary H. Finch of Wilmington.

Everyone remembers Mina Baker-maybe for different reasons, but she was a woman of character.  She served her community by contributing her talents in beauty.  Everyone emerged from her beauty shop looking fantastic.  As one of eleven siblings, she worked hard and dedicated all her love being a wife to Bennie Baker and raising her two children, Benjie and Ben.  In her 88 years of life, she served the Lord in her thoughts and actions.  In 2001, she became a grandma to Adam Forest Baker who was the beat in her heart.  We will all miss Mina in each of our own ways, but her memory will be kept alive through family sharing stories.  Let's all think of a few and share.

Family will greet friends at a visitation set for 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 18, 2024, with service to follow at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel of Padgett Funeral & Cremation Services in Wallace.  Inurnment will follow the service in the Rockfish Memorial Cemetery of Wallace.  Floral arrangements are welcome or please consider a contribution to North Chase Nursing and Rehabilitation Center--(Resident Council Fund) and address to Sarah Revis-Administrator, 3015 Enterprise Drive, Wilmington, NC 28405.
