Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

1949-2008 PRICE-Shawna Carol Baker, was released from her earthly bonds on Christmas Eve, 2008. Shawna was born April 26, 1949 in Dragerton, Utah to John Carroll and Eva Seeronen Askern.

She married her teenage sweetheart, Lyle Baker, on March 8, 1968 in Honolulu, Hawaii; together they raised three children.

Lyle remained a devoted and loving husband throughout their 40 years of marriage, and stood by Shawna's side throughout her life, her illnesses, and her death.

She will be remembered for her joy of camping in Huntington Canyon, Dutch oven cooking, taking rides with Ginger her beloved boxer, playing with her goats, shopping for bargains (we are still finding her 10 cent Woolworth specials throughout the house), and the compassion she showed elderly people when she worked as a home health care aide. Most of all she will be remembered for her generous heart and lifelong devotion to her family.

She is survived by her husband; mother, Eva Sampi; children, Jody (Matt) Wenner, Sandi (Mark) Fisher, Billy Baker and her four grandchildren, Lakota, Corbin, Jimmie Dallon, and Caine; surviving family member Kyle Fisher.

She is preceded in death by her father John Carroll Askern, step-father, Theodore Sampi; and her uncle Nelo Seeronen.

Shawna's family would like to thank the staff at Castle Country Care Center, and all the friends and extended family members that supported her throughout her final years. Special thanks to her two best friends, Jeanie Bentley and Pat Harward, for their continued support. Her children would like to express their gratitude to their parents for showing them the meaning of true love through sickness and health, and the tender way their daddy tucked in their mother every night.

All who knew and loved Shawna can find comfort in the faith that she is in a better place, where tranquility reigns and pain is no more.

Funeral service was held Saturday, Dec. 27, 2008, 3 p.m., Mitchell Funeral Home, Price, Utah. Interment, Price City Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home.
