Baker, John W. (1864? - 23 Feb. 1945)
John W. Baker, father of Mrs. Blucher Paulus of Neillsville, died at his home in Olney, Ill., on February 23, at the age of 81 years. Mr. and Mrs. Paulus and the latter’s daughter, Mrs. Bernice Knight, visited Mr. Baker at his home in Olney on Sunday, February 18, and found him apparently in his usual good health. On their way home they stopped in Chicago to visit at the home of Mrs. Paulus’ brother, and while there received the word that her father had suffered a stroke. Mr. Paulus and Mrs. Knight came on to Neillsville and Mrs. Paulus returned to her father’s home to assist in caring for him in his last hours. Following the funeral service she returned home, reaching here last Wednesday. Mr. Baker is survived by five daughters and one son.
