Charlotte L Baker

July 15, 1966 ~ November 1, 2021 (age 55)


Local resident, Charlotte Lynne Baker, 55, of Salida, was found dead on November 1st, 2021 in her home. Charlotte was born in Salida on July 15th, 1966 to Donna L. Hazelhurst (Baker) and Charles E. Baker. Charlotte graduated from Salida High School and went on to study Early Childhood Development. In her previous years, she worked at Salida Early Head Start and later worked at Salida Walmart. She has always been a dedicated employee and put her "all" into everything she did. More than anything in the world, she held her family and friends so close to her heart. She especially loved get-togethers and Holidays. She always lit up the room with such positive energy and put in so much dedication to making things special and memorable for everyone. Those moments will never be the same with out her there, but she left many memories and traditions that can be carried on and cherished forever. Above any other hobby or interest, she loved sports! She had been a huge football fan since a young age after repeditively watching the Denver Broncos with her parents and brother growing up. Her love for sports only grew over time. She found her biggest passion around 1995 when the Colorado Avalanche Hockey Team was established. She almost never missed a game on TV and knew every player by name and number. Over the years, she attended many of their home games, but her biggest dream came true when she finally met the team in 2019. She passed that love down to her grandson, Teryn, who had attended many of those events with her and her beloved group of "Hockey Buddies". Charlotte was proceeded in death by her parents, Donna and Charles Baker. She is survived by her children, Nichole Cabay (Everett) and Austin Cabay, one grandchild, Teryn Lewey, her brother, Daryl Baker, and numerous cousins and friends. She will be dearly missed by us all, and left an inprint in all of our hearts. The family will be holding a "Celebration of Life" in the near future. The date/time is yet to be determined. Anybody that wants to donate money for expenses can do so on her "Go Fund Me" page, or send it directly to 7027 County Road 156C Salida Co 81201. Anything donated will help her family get through this unexpected loss with less financial stress. Thoughts and prayers are just as much appreciated!!
