THE WESTERN STAR, 13 June 1891
Obituary of HELEN M. BAKER
Death has invaded another home in our county. Mrs. Helen M. Baker died at the residence of Jacob Kehl, on Mule Creek, on Wednesday of this week. Mrs. Baker has been ill several months with consumption, but it was not thought by her friends and relatives that she was so near death's door.

She was the wife of James M. Baker, who lately run a barbershop in our city, but who is now engaged on a cattle ranch in the county. The family consisted of husband, wife and a son about ten years old.

The deceased is a sister of G. W. Hollenback, representative elect of this county. Mrs. Baker left this city a short time before her death to visit with friends on Mule Creek, at which place death claimed her very suddenly.

In fact she did not think she was going to die when she did. When importuned to send for her husband, she said, "No, I will be better soon," but, she expired a few minutes later. The deceased was born in Sandwich, Ill., and was thirty-eight years of age at the time of her death.

Funeral services consisting of song, prayer and remarks, were conducted by Rev. J.G. Wilkinson at the family residence Thursday evening. The remains were taken to Hillsdale, Kansas on yesterday's train for burial. The husband and son have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.
