June 27, 1955 – May 23, 2015
Deborah Baker passed away at Delta Hospital after a brief and sudden illness.
She leaves behind her husband Jim Martian, children Tyler (Laura), Chelsea, Brandon and Darcie, brothers Cam and Jeff and many family and friends.
Deb grew up in Vancouver, coming to Point Roberts in 1995. She raised her four children with fierce love and devotion, and had a hand in raising a whole generation of their peers that were always welcome in her home. A passionate animal lover, she welcomed a menagerie of dogs, cats, pigs, horses and donkeys to her Benson Road farm, to the delight of many visitors driving by. As co-owner of Bloomers Nursery and later Lush Gardens, Deb was a familiar face to the Point’s gardeners. She married Jim in 2011 after many years together.
Deb was passionate about her friends and family, and she will be remembered for her kindness, warmth and hospitality. She spoke her mind, sometimes a little loudly, but always honestly, and people counted on her for understanding and forthright advice.
Hundreds attended a celebration of Deb’s life on Tuesday, May 26, at the Beach Grove Golf and Country Club in Tsawwassen, B.C. to share stories and memories of a beautiful woman, and a beautiful life over too soon.
