Obituary of Nell Bake

Nell Radine Bake, 95 of Moberly, passed away January 4, 2020 at Valley View Health and Rehabilitation.  She was born on the 4th of July in 1924 in Houstonia, MO to Robert Woodall and Maggie Juanita Thomas Woodall. 

Nell resided in Cross Timbers, MO until 1957 and then spent 16 years in San Diego, CA.  Later she and her husband served a 2-year church mission and eventually relocated to Moberly, MO in 2002. On May 10, 1940 she married Noel Bake in Preston, MO and they spent many wonderful years together.

Nell was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  She held various jobs throughout her life but enjoyed being a homemaker and helping to take care of others in their homes.  Nell also enjoyed sewing, quilting, cooking and baking.  She made incredible hot rolls that were light and fluffy.  She used so much butter that her family joked you put the roll-on butter not the other way around.  They also loved that she rolled out the remaining dough and sprinkled it with cinnamon and sugar for them.  Nell had a big heart and a warm smile.  She will be missed by many.

She is preceded in death by her parents; her beloved husband, Noel Bake and her four brothers.

Survivors include her children, Paul Bake, Velma Ruth Green and Cathey (Wendell) Creed all of Moberly; 16 grandchildren, 29 great grandchildren, 16 great-great grandchildren; extended family and friends.
