January 15, 2022, 1, Goldsboro –
Nevaeh Kimberlee Baker exchanged her earthly life to be a ray of light in the Heavens on Saturday, January 15, 2022 at UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill. Nevaeh was born in New Hanover County on January 17, 2020, to proud parents, David Earl Baker and Mon’a Laquesha Scott.
Though her life on this earth was brief, her impact was long-lasting. Full of personality, she could command an audience in any room she entered. Sassy as she could be, she put a smile on everyone’s face at first encounter. Everyone knew she was a mama’s girl because Nevaeh was always attached to her hip.
Ordinary activities that many fail to appreciate made for exciting moments in Nevaeh’s life. The joys of bath time, from playing with her toys to splashing in the water were looked forward to every day. Drawing artistic creations was a delight for both Nevaeh and her parents, and time spent at the beach was the ultimate joy.
Perhaps Nevaeh’s favorite part of the day was meal time. Spending time with her family and enjoying the foods placed before her, Nevaeh was known to be a good eater and to appreciate the delights from her family’s kitchen.
The bond Nevaeh had with her brother was beyond compare. Without a word spoken, the gentle touch of her hand would immediately calm him when tears began to fall.
The family will receive friends on Tuesday, January 25, 2022 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a service to celebrate Nevaeh’s life at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel. Interment will be in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery.
In addition to her parents, Nevaeh is survived by her brother, Nehemiah Grey Baker; grandparents, Heather Baker and Gilbert Baker; and aunts, Monica Scott and her family and Jennifer Weaver and her family.
Flowers are welcome or memorials may be given in her memory to the UNC Hospital Children’s Foundation.
