Susan Baker

Susan Linnett Baker joined the Lord’s angels on Sunday, July 1st, 2018 at Mercy Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa.

Susan was born in Des Moines, Iowa on December 6th, 1967 to Darrell and Connie (Lankford) Baker. She lived on the southside where she raised two daughters, Linnette Johnson and Breanna Burgess. She was one of the most supportive people you could meet and there was never a time where you couldn’t count on her; through every situation she would be by your side. She enjoyed spending much of her time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Susan also made many of the family meals including her infamous chicken and noodles and enchiladas. There was not a family function where you wouldn’t find a Pepsi in hand and you could always catch her cracking jokes.

Susan is survived by her two daughters: Linnette (Tim) Johnson and Breanna Burgess, grandchildren: Acaja, Andre and Meila, siblings: Doug and Kristi Baker, in addition to many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her grandma Martha and parents Darrell and Connie.

There will be a Celebration of Life in memory of Susan for family and friends at Four Mile Community Center (3711 Easton Blvd., DSM, IA 50317) from 1:30 to 3:30pm on Sunday, July 15th, 2018.
