Deloise Baker, age 99, of New Richmond, WI, passed away on January 13, 2023. Deloise was born on August 3, 1923 near Milltown, Wisconsin. She was the only child of Clarence and Minerva (Montgomery) Trindle. She was raised on farms and attended 1st grade at rural Milltown.  Then they moved to rural Anthon, Iowa where she attended school for a couple of years.  Later, they moved near Parkersburg, Iowa.  There she went through 7th grade.  In 1936, they moved back to Wisconsin.  Here she attended 8th grade at Jewett Mills Country School.  She attended and graduated from New Richmond High School on May 1941, and continued her education at University of River Falls Wisconsin where she earned her elementary education degree. Deloise loved teaching and was a kindergarten teacher for 31 years at St. Croix Central. Deloise married Ellis Baker and together had two children. They lived in the Bay area and the Los Angeles areas of California. Their marriage would later dissolve.


Deloise loved her family more than anything and would do anything for them. She valued education greatly and helped support her children and grandchildren though their schooling as much as they needed. Her hobbies included traveling, sewing, painting, reading, healthy cooking, and bird watching. She could often tell what kind of bird was around just by hearing them sing.


She is survived by her children James A. Baker of Baldwin, and Ervajean (Gary) Brostrom of Menomonie; grandchildren Troy (Doreen) Brostrom of Eau Claire and Trent (Jenna) Brostrom of Flowery Branch, Georgia; great-grandchildren Sasha, Tyler, Madison, Carson, and Emmerson. She is preceded in death by her parents.


A visitation for Deloise will be held on Thursday, January 19, 2023 at the O’Connell Family Funeral Home in Baldwin, WI from 4-6pm. A funeral service will be held the following day on Friday, January 20, 2023 at First Reformed Church in Baldwin at 11am with a visitation one hour prior to the service.

  1. Mrs. Baker was my kindergarten teacher, she was a great teacher, and I was lucky to have her as my teacher. I have fond memories of that classroom with my classmates and teacher. Her love of teaching sure did shine through 😊❤.

  2. I had the precious gift of sitting next to your Mom for a year and a half every Wednesday. She and my grandmother sat at the same table at the Deerfield. It was so interesting to talk with her. We had a common bond being NR graduates. May she rest in peaceful garden of heaven.
