Carol Ann Baker

Suddenly in hospital on 8th December 2022 Carol aged 73 years of Accrington. Mother of Victoria and Sharon, a proud grandma, dear sister of Colin and Linda and a loved auntie and relative to many.

Carol served in the Royal Navy and remained proud of her service throughout her life, it was during her service that she met the love of her life and soulmate Gerald. She later began working for Lancashire County Council as a domestic before moving in to the care sector working her way up to care home manager. Carol always had a love of the sea and over the years has enjoyed many wonderful cruises travelling around the world. Following the devastating loss of her beloved Gerald Carol developed a passion for line dancing and travelled around the country with her fellow dancers and even took a trip to the USA. Carol loved to chat and could talk to anyone about anything. She was an avid gardener and many happy hours were spent pottering around her garden and greenhouse and if you ever visited Carol you was sure to leave with a new bundle of plants.
