Dorothy Gulak Baker passed away Monday March 23, 2020. She was born in Garnerville N.Y. January 30, 1936 to the late Andrew J. Gulak and the late Ilona Simkovic Gulak. She is preceded in death by her husband Robert A. Baker.
She is survived by her daughters, Kathleen Baker Coleman, Donna Baker and Susan Baker and sons, Andrew Baker and Peter Baker; Five Grandchildren; Amber Frieburger and husband John, Tyler Baker, Robert Coleman, Zachary Coleman and Samantha Coleman, Four Great Grandchildren; Levi Frieburger, Valirey Frieburger, Raylee Coleman and Natasha Coleman; Two brothers, Peter P. Gulak and Andrew J. Gulak, wife Linda and her sister Ilona B. Gulak McKeever.
Dorothy was widowed at a very young age with 4 small children and one on the way. She never remarried as Robert Baker was the love of her life. She devoted her entire life to raising all five of her children and was involved in each of their lives. She was ecstatic to be a Grandmother and when she became a GiGi she was delighted. She had nothing but love and kind words for everyone, even those who were not kind to her. As anyone who met her can attest, she was a true “saint and a beautiful soul”.
There will be a private mass at St. Thomas Moore Friday April 3, 2020 which will be televised on the St. Thomas More Facebook Page which can be accessed by visiting their website at https://www.stmva.org/. Her burial will immediately follow at Holy Cross Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to St. Jude’s Hospital or St. Thomas More as this was Dorothy’s charities of choice.
