Dinah A. Baker
Date of Passing:
Dinah A. Baker, 78, of Barrington, RI died peacefully on January 11, 2023 at the Hope Health Hulitar Hospice Center in Providence.
Dinah was the eldest daughter of Herbert and Elizabeth Baker. She is survived by her sisters Mary and Martha, and her brother Kevin, as well as several nieces, nephews, and cousins whom she loved. Dinah was predeceased by her brother Butch.
Dinah graduated from Barrington High School in 1962 and subsequently Emmanuel College in Boston in 1966. She pursued her Master’s degree in social work from Boston University. Dinah went on to become a director of BU’s overseas graduate program in Heidelberg, Germany. While in Europe and vacationing in Greece, Dinah suffered a life-altering brain aneurysm. She returned to the States and fully recovered, only to suffer another aneurysm 2 years later. Never one to complain, despite being dealt a difﬁcult hand, she continued to lead a productive life, bringing absolute joy to anyone she met, while sharing her positive attitude and love of life freely. Dinah was a lover of music, art, dogs, and young children, but most of all her diverse group of loyal friends, who loved and cared for her dearly. We will miss her warm smile and uninhibited spirit.
A Celebration of her Life and her love of music will be held in late February.
