In memory of
Joyce Baker (McCraney) Joyce McCraney Baker went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 7, 2017. She was born on March 14, 1949 in Akron, Ohio to the late F.D. and Glaner McCraney. Joyce completed her education at Copley High School. To know Joyce was to love her. Her bright and giving personality served her well in her many customer service positions throughout her career; most notably at Kmart and Dave Towell Cadillac. Her giving nature also served her well as she spent her latter days helping her neighbors and friends who were in need. Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, F.D. and Glaner McCraney; brothers, Delbert, Larry, Terry, Fred and Frank McCraney; sisters, Vesther Bradley and Cecelia Terry. Left to cherish her memories are her sons, Dexter (Heather) Baker of Toledo, Ohio and Damon (Tracy) Baker of Cleveland, Ohio; sisters, Janice McCraney, Shirley (Norman) Jones all of Akron, Ohio; grandchildren, Dexter Jr., Lauren and Damon Jr. as well as a host of nieces, nephews and other family that she touched on her journey. She will be forever loved and missed. A memorial service will be held in her honor on Saturday, January 14, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. at Greater Galilee Baptist Church, 70 W. Huston Street, Barberton, Ohio 44203. Bishop Emmett J. Lee Eulogizing. Friends may visit from 3 p.m. until time of service. Condolences may be sent to 1115 Pimlico Park, Holland, Ohio 43528.
