She attended Chapman College before marrying Robert Bruce Savory on June 13, 1941 at the Wee Kirk O'The Heather in Glendale. They had become sweethearts at John Marshall High School, where Bruce sat behind Edna May in English class and pulled her auburn curls., After the War and Bruce's Navy duty, Edna May and Bruce moved back to L.A. and bought a house on Airlane Avenue, where jets now land at LAX. Edna May took pride in each house that she and Bruce made into a home for their three daughters. She drove them to school and to ballet lessons in her green 1961 Comet and made the best potato salad in the world., When the girls left the nest, Edna May and Bruce signed up for night-school French. This ultimately led to twelve trips to Europe, each of them meticulously planned by Edna May, the original budget traveler. Edna May researched her English ancestors on these journeys, filling in the family tree without the aid of computer databases., Upon Bruce's retirement in 1979, they moved to Washington state, where two daughters were living, and started a new life in Snohomish county. They were honored for their part in establishing the Lake Stevens Historical Museum. While Bruce restored old photos, Edna May cataloged donations and absorbed local history.

At the age of 17, Bob joined the Navy. He experienced many adventures while traveling to different countries all over the world, crossing the Atlantic numerous times and the Pacific twice while serving in the American and European Theatres. He was a Signal Man, Second Class, on the SS Henry Jocelyn, the Jose Bonifacio, the Jefferson Myers, and the SS Meteor. He also served at the armed guard center in Brooklyn, N.Y., Treasure Island, San Francisco, and the Port Director's Office in Pearl Harbor. The family has a real sense of history in a time of war from the many recollections Bob gave to us., Bob worked at J.C. Penney before and after serving in the Navy, and it was there he met his wife, Virginia Lee Ide. They were married August 8, 1948. Together, they raised three children, Alison, Roberta 'Bobbi,' and Mark. Working in the construction industry, they lived in many different locations in the Pacific Northwest. Bob always took pride in his children and their accomplishments and supported their efforts in any endeavor. He showed them by example how to go through life with a strong work ethic, tolerance, and a sense of humor. Bob and Virginia celebrated 58 years together before Virginia passed away in March of 2007., Bob wore many hats in the construction industry estimator, general contractor, project manager and he knew just about everything related to the construction business. He knew prices like the back of his hand and how to come in low on a bid. He had the respect and admiration of those in the business. After having worked for a number of construction companies throughout the Pacific Northwest, Bob and friend Boyd Roberts of Sunnyside, WA, started their own construction company, Baker Roberts, Inc. in 1989. Later, Bob started Baker and Associates, a construction consulting firm.

Bob also was a member of Rotary Club in Woodinville, WA., Bob was a member of the Episcopalian Church for 30 years. He served on the Board of Directors and Chairman of the Department of Missions at St. Paul's Episcopalian Church in Kennewick. In 2008, he joined St. Joseph's Catholic Church., Bob was a 17-year survivor of cancer. He lived very well for so many years by an amazing positive attitude. When his cancer became progressive, he received wonderful care at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. He underwent several clinical trials there, always looking for the cure. He loved the people there and received Christmas cards and emails from them even after his treatments were complete. Bob was especially thankful for his local physicians, Dr. Stanley Hales, and Dr. Thomas Rado, and held a deep respect and friendship for both of them. Both of his physicians said many times, 'Bob, I just don't believe you just when I think you aren't going to make it, you really surprise us.', There is one very special person that we credit for our father's extra years on this Earth. In 2008, while attending a retired Merchant Marines luncheon, he met a woman, Edna Aslin. That began a courtship that culminated in their marriage on May 24, 2008. Bob and 'Edie' shared so many memories in the short time they were together. They enjoyed trips and summer vacations with family at the beach house in Neskowin, OR. They cherished their time together with family and made every get-together special., Bob was preceded in death by his mother and father, George and Margaret Baker; and by his first wife, Virginia Lee Baker., Bob is survived by his wife, Edna, of Kennewick; two daughters, Alison (Luis) Cordero, Selah, WA, and Roberta 'Bobbi' (Chris) McClure, Pasco, WA; one son, Mark (Barb) Baker, Kennewick, WA; and two stepsons, Matt (Mary) Aslin, Laguna Beach, CA, and Doug Aslin, Mercer Island, WA.
