June Laverne Baker, 86, of New Braunfels, passed away in her home on Sunday, November 26, 2017. Born on November 10, 1931 in Lubbock, Texas, she was the daughter of the late Clyde O. Fawcett and Ida O'Veda Hogan Fawcett. June was preceded in death by her husband of 37 years, Kenneth Franklin Baker.
June is survived by sister Ida Dowell; her children, Deborah Baker and her husband Peter Aprias, Randy Baker and his wife, Suzanne, and Barry Baker and his wife Tracey; grandchildren, Scott Strawser (Natalie), Sean Strawser, Dusty Baker, Brad Baker (Meagan), Quinten Baker, and Kingsley Baker; step-grandchildren, Justin Aprias, Nicole Aprias, Janelle Aprias; great-grand Kids, Hope Strawser, Reed Strawser, Cade Strawser, Trent Strawser, Berlin Strawser, Presley Baker, Knox Baker, Bowen Baker, and one on the way; step-great grand Kids, Ethan Chernicke, Simon Chernicke, Nina Chernicke, Brittany Aprias, and Kayleigh Aprias; and numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.

June was one of 6 children and spent her childhood years growing up in Lubbock, TX. She was an excellent student and was advanced from 6th grade to 8th grade. After high school she married Ken and began her life as an Air Force wife. After their first child Debbie was born the family moved to Germany where Ken was stationed for 2 years. They returned to Lubbock, TX and welcomed their second child, Randy. Soon June and Ken were stationed at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, and the family settled in New Braunfels. June loved her children and was involved in their lives and schooling early on. She served as a Crossing Guard (Momma Patrol), PTA President, Girl Scout Leader and the Librarian at Carl Schurz Elementary. June and Ken completed their family with baby number three when Barry was born. Shortly after that the family moved to the Philippines and spent 2 years stationed there. After returning to the states and back to New Braunfels, June managed the Credit Bureau for 10 years. She then worked for San Antonio Savings Association until she retired.
June loved to travel and never missed an opportunity to take a trip with one or all of her siblings. She was an excellent bowler and she and Ken both bowled in numerous leagues. She enjoyed playing Bridge and Pinochle with friends. June loved the outdoors and spent hours working in her yard, gardening and taking walks. She spent time helping others and served as a volunteer with Hope Hospice 11th Hour Program.
Over the years June loved to watch her grandkids and great grandkids in whatever they were doing. She almost never missed a game or an event. In her later years she was an avid supporter of New Braunfels Christian Academy Athletics and Events. She was always on the sidelines or in the stands. A true #1 fan, she will be missed.
June was a wonderful, loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She loved spending time with her family. She was an excellent example of making the most of everyday and putting others before herself. June was loved and will be missed by all who knew her. What a privilege it was to call her our Mom and Mema.
