Obituary for Patricia Elizabeth Baker Caples

Patricia Baker Caples was born October 20, 1946. She was the daughter of the late Bessie Miller Baker and Wesley Baker and sister of Reginald Baker. Patricia passed away on Monday morning, April 15, 2019 in her residence.

Pat, as she was known to most, grew up in Kingstree, South Carolina, until she was teenaged and moved to Chicago to stay with her aunt, Carrie Platts, while she continued her education. She received her degree from Chicago State University and went on to benefit from a long career as an elementary and middle school teacher of Alexander Graham Chicago Public School.

She was a member of Resurrection United Methodist Church, formerly known as Gammon United Methodist Church, and was extremely active in many ministries, including member of SPPRC, Older Adult Ministry, Church Council, Trustee Board, chairperson of the Senior Ministry and Pastor Parish Committee, among others. She was also active in the Metro Women’s Auxiliary of the Marcy Newberry Association, serving as chairperson on several committees as well as other charitable endeavors.

After Pat established her career and bought a house in Oak Park, Illinois she married Levester Caples. To that union, two sons were born, Kevin Matthew Caples and Levester Wesley Caples.

Pat was extremely sweet, generous, and family-oriented. When her parents’ health declined, she took her mother, father, and brother into her home and was the primary caregiver for each of them until they passed. She also cared for her aunts in South Carolina, as they were aging and needed assistance regularly. She led by example with a benevolent spirit, leaving a legacy that touched and encouraged countless people. She left behind her sons; granddaughter, Zola; loving cousins; nephew, aunt, sister friends, close friends, and family.
