She was born April 24, 1948 in Lynchburg, VA to Raymond Herbert and Jacqueline Rae (King) Baker. Bian taught math at Field Local Schools for 42 years. She was a member of Fallscreek Community Church in Munroe Falls. Bian was a born teacher with a true and honorable devotion to teaching that went far beyond the classroom. She took every opportunity to help anyone in need, educationally and spiritually, and she remained friends with her former students, always willing to help them. Bian's wry sense of humor kept us all on our toes and her laugh, so very her, will always be remembered. A devoted and dear friend to all. In remembrance of Bian, please take an opportunity to pay her graciousness forward.
