Blacksburg, Va. – Positive Alternative Radio President, Edward Baker has lost his wife, Judi, following a long battle with cancer. Services for her are planned for 2 p.m. on Friday, December 16th, at McCoy Funeral Home in Blacksburg, Virginia.
“Judi was a gracious, kind woman who loved Jesus and the mission of PAR,” said Brian Sanders, Executive Vice President. “Our President has lost his lifelong companion and we have lost part of our family. We ask for everyone’s prayers for Eddie and his family during this difficult time.”
Judi was known as an accomplished writer, master gardener, creative quilter/seamstress, and equine (dressage) enthusiast. Her reserved manner was often offset by an entertaining, wry sense of humor to those who knew her. She was a loving mom and adoring, supportive partner to Eddie. She was most recently living her dream of building her horse boarding business on the family farm in Riner, Virginia.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks for memorial donations to the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance at https://www.ocrahope.org
