Obituary of Natalie Baker

Natalie Sara Baker, passed  away  8/11/18 in her long time Lawrenceville home just days before her 94th birthday.

Born in Belle Meade NJ, Natalie grew up on a farm in Hopewell.  After marrying Jess Baker (now deceased), they built their dream house in which Natalie devoted her life to proudly caring for her home and being a loving mother and Mommom to her family. 

Natalie devoted her time and kindness to care for those who could not do for themselves.                                                        In earlier years, she was employed at St Lawrence Rehab as a nurse's assistant and in later years she was recognized as an outstanding volunteer at Morris Hall.

Natalie was a beloved friend to many and until recent years, she enjoyed being an active member of the Lawrence Senior Club One.

She is survived by her daughters, Sharon Chadwick and Rhonda Stoveken, their spouses Chris Chadwick and Ken Stoveken, grandchildren, Jennifer and Josh Stoveken, Jess and Cullen Chadwick, whose spouses are Leah Chadwick and Zara Williams-Bardorff  and 5 great-grandchildren: Allie, Nora, Claire, Avalon and Emily.

Also surviving are sisters Harriet Novak and Florence Rogers, numerous in-laws, nieces and nephews and her devoted caregiver Maria Priputnikova.


Natalie was predeceased by sisters Lottie Ploski, Jean Witkowski, Caroline Wenski,  and brother Stanley Ploski.
