ImaNell "Gigi" Baker Kirsch passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 5th, in Dallas, TX, after living a very full and blessed life of 93 years.
Gigi, as she was named by her granddaughter Stephanie, was a name she loved to be called by those closest to her.

Nell was born in Pecan Gap, TX on April 26, 1924 to George and Etta Jane Baker and was the youngest of their five children. Upon the death of her mother at age 14, Nell went to live with her cousin Martha Woodward and her aunt Vivian in Farmersville, TX. She graduated high school there and went on to attend nursing school in Dallas, where she became a R.N. serving in Temple, TX, during World War II.

Nell raised her three children, Vivianne, Laura and David, in Galveston, TX.
She later moved to Dallas, where she met and married her best friend, Gerry Kirsch.
They were married for 39 wonderful years until his death in 2013.

Gigi was incredibly talented and loved to share her God given gifts with many.
She was at her happiest when she was painting, sculpting, baking, or gardening. She would share her treasures with you, along with a story about how it came together and a few polaroids to further illustrate the road she took to get there.

Nell loved her family immensely and those of us remaining will forever cherish her and what she meant to us.

Her children are: Vivianne Harris, Laura Klein, and David Harris and wife, Monica.

She has four wonderful grandchildren: Stephanie Strangis, Rita Harris, Paul Wunderlick and Andrew Harris.

And she has one very special great granddaughter, who is named after her, in Savannah Nell Strangis.

Much love to Maxi for her never ending care for Gigi.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made in honor of Nell to a charity of your choice which is assisting with our recent natural disaster.
