Monday, February 25, 2008, the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON) will celebrate the life of Jeannine Baker, former director of the School's Office of Student Financial Services. Baker died from brain cancer on January 17, 2008, at the Gilchrist Center. She was 58. The memorial event is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. in the Carpenter Room (first floor at the SON), 525 North Wolfe Street in Baltimore. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In an obituary published February 4, 2008, in The JHU Gazette, Baker was described as a tireless and focused administrator. "Jeannine took great pride in the accomplishments of our students, enjoyed congratulating them as they crossed the stage on graduation day and followed their careers with interest," said Sandra Angell, associate dean for student affairs.
Faculty, students, staff and friends from throughout JHU are encouraged to attend and share their memories of Baker through photos and written anecdotes. All will be compiled in a memory book for her family. Those unable to attend may send items c/o Phyllis Wilcox at the JHUSON Office of Student Financial Services.
