Darcy Ellen Baker, age 60, passed away in Eureka in February 2023. She was born in Reno, Nevada and grew up in Downieville, California. She moved around until she found home in Eureka with her son Kristopher Wharff.

Darcy was a loving, caring and friendly mother, sister, auntie, grandmother and friend. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren (Kaden, Bella and Tyson) do practically anything. She loved their company and the stories they would tell her. Her world revolved around them.

Darcy enjoyed spending time with family and her grandpets (Molly, Freya and Sassy). She loved traveling to attend country concerts. Her favorite time of year was summertime so she could spend time in the sun with her grandkids.

Darcy spent most of her life working as a housekeeper for different hotels until she found her job at Granada Rehabilitation Center. She absolutely loved her job at Granada. She loved her residents — she enjoyed helping them as much as she could — and met her great friend, Miki, who worked with her.

Darcy is survived by her son Kristopher Wharff (Brittany); sister Lori Walsh, nieces Emily Dorigoni (Berto) and Amanda Dorigoni (Jon); nephew Michael Dorigoni (Sandra); and grandchildren Kaden, Bella and Tyson.

She was preceded in death by her father, Eugene Foster, and her mother, Mildred Potter.

Darcy loved to tell stories about her childhood and where she grew up. She loved to laugh and play/tell jokes. Darcy is loved and will be dearly missed by family, extended family and friends.

Forever in our hearts.
