RENA LOU BAKER was one of Gods special Angels who taught us about Life, Family and Love.
Rena Lou Baker was the daughter of the late James B and Myrtle E. Logan Baker. At 67 yrs old, she was the last of a long line of women in her family to carry the name “Rena”.
Rena lived with her parents at the family homestead in Monmouth Jct section of South Brunswick until 2000. She then relocated to Spotswood to live with her sister Fay and “Brother –in- law ” Luke Knox. In 2006 she moved back to South Brunswick to live independently at CIL (Citizens for Independent Living). Rena enjoyed 11 years with many wonderful friends there. Especially her dear friend, David Bogoloff and her roommate, Sue Heinz. She worked at the Raritan Valley Workshop in North Brunswick for over 30 years. She attended night school program in East Brunswick for many years, was a member of the Pioneer Club in South Brunswick, attended Camp Robin in Old Bridge. She was a proud member of the Six Mile Run Reformed Church, attending Sunday School, singing in the choir and was Confirmed.
