H. George Baker Memorial Fund for Epilepsy Support
Founded by wife Elizabeth K. Baker for programs for persons with epilepsy.
H. George Baker owned the Case Farm Machinery dealership in downtown Frederick. He changed careers in the early 1960s and went to work for the Frederick County Highway Department until his retirement in 1982. Mr. Baker had epilepsy at a time when the disease was widely misunderstood. When he was younger, his peers sadly did not wish to associate with him. To help others cope with the disease with which her husband lived, Mr. Baker’s widow created The H. George Baker Memorial Fund for Epilepsy Support. The fund supports Frederick County residents diagnosed with epilepsy and their families through The Monocacy Foundation.
Founded by parents David and Catherine Baker to provide grants and scholarships.
Emma Baker was a student at Catoctin High School, and an athlete who loved to play softball. She was also a lively fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and active in her church, St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in Westminster, Maryland. She liked to read, play games, and travel. Sadly, Emma passed away in late 2012 at age 14 after a battle with brain cancer. Emma’s parents, David and Catherine Baker, created the fund to create a legacy for Emma that reflects her activities and interests, and to share what a wonderful daughter she was and the impact she had on so many people in a short time.
