   Joyce Delana Baker, age 77, of Stillwaters, Dadeville, AL, went to be with her Heavenly Father on February 1, 2011 following a long and valiant fight with Alzheimer’s Disease.  Joyce was the beloved wife of William H. “Bill” Baker for 57 years and the mother of William H. “Herb” Baker, Jr., Phenix City, AL and Delana E.

   Joyce and her “Billy” started their lives together in Auburn, AL and always considered it home.


   She was preceded in death by her parents, JD Dorough and Audie Elise Dorough, and her brother, Wyman H. Dorough.


   Those left to cherish her memory are her much beloved grandchildren, Charles M. “Chad” Edmondson (Erin), Miramar Beach, FL, and Anne H. “Annie” Baker, Seattle, WA; sisters, Carolyn H. Dorough, Pensacola, FL, and Mattie E. Dorough, Auburn; sisters-in-law, Margie L. Ray, Montgomery, and Mary Dorough, Starkville, MS; brothers-in-law, Charles W. Baker (Marie), Tuskegee, and Preston E.
