Linda Mae Baker (Nee: Henson), 58, of Covington, KY passed away Friday, March 31, 2023. She was born February 13, 1965 in Covington, KY to the late George and Virginia Henson. Linda was a spiritual person who enjoyed reading her daily scriptures. She worked hard to care for her family, and she loved being a grandma. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy. She also loved being part of a big family, and she enjoyed cruising around with her sisters. You would rarely see her without her cold Polar Pop and Pall Malls, they were staples in her life.
