Patty grew up and received her education in Sioux Falls, SD. She graduated from Washington High School in 1967. She married Jerry L. Baker on June 2, 1969. From this union they had two girls, Karie and Sarah. Patty was very proud of her girls and her grandchildren. She had various jobs throughout her life, but her biggest accomplishment was building High-Altitude Scientific Research balloons for Raven Industries. In her spare time she loved to spend time with her family and friends. She especially enjoyed fishing on the Missouri River for walleye. She also enjoyed cross-stitching and gardening. After retirement, Patty and Jerry were able to build their house near Pierre so they could enjoy the Missouri River on a daily basis. Patty leaves behind her husband Jerry L.
