Maxine Elizabeth (Carter) Baker

March 3, 1941 — July 23, 2023


On a serene Sunday, July 23, 2023, at Georgetown Hospital, the world bid farewell to the remarkable soul that was Maxine Baker. She was 82 years old. Although her battle with breast cancer was arduous, it would be unjust to say that she lost the fight, for she epitomized a spirit that refused to surrender. Through her journey, she revealed the true essence of bravery, resilience, and perseverance, leaving an indelible impression on those who witnessed her unwavering courage.

Affectionately known as Nana to many, Maxine possessed a love for her grandchildren that knew no bounds. Her heart swelled with joy at the prospect of spending time with them and the entire family at her cherished cottage on Brydon's Bay, Muskoka. Every moment shared with her grandchildren was treasured, and nothing brought her greater joy than seeing her entire family come together, basking in the warmth of love and togetherness.

Maxine's world was one enriched by the written word. A voracious reader, she embarked on countless literary journeys, exploring the depths of imagination and wisdom through the pages of books. Her passion for reading was matched only by her eagerness to share her latest literary discoveries. In moments of solitude, she found solace and reflection, cherishing the tranquility that accompanied her literary explorations.

A legendary matriarch, Maxine had been preceded in death by her beloved husband, Dr. Anthony Baker, who departed from this world in 2010. Her legacy lives on through her devoted children, Chris and his wife Lynne and Kimberley and her husband Paul, who carry the torch of her love and strength. Maxine's presence will forever be felt in the hearts of her cherished grandchildren: Carter, Liam, Keith, Kelly, Maddie, and Andrew, whose lives were forever touched by her unwavering affection.

In accordance with the family's wishes, there shall be no formal visitation or funeral service. Instead, Maxine's journey reaches its culmination through cremation. Maxine Baker's life was a symphony of love, wisdom, and strength—a radiant legacy that will continue to echo through the hearts of her loved ones, inspiring and uplifting them for generations to come.

In accordance with the family's wishes, there shall be no formal visitation or funeral service.
