Monticello, WI - Sora Judith Baker, age 11, of Monticello passed away on Thursday, June 27, 2013 at American Family Children's Hospital in Madison after a long courageous struggle with Cystic Fibrosis.
She was born May 14, 2002 in Madison to her parents Gregg and Laura (Grenia) Baker. Sora was a girl who lived life to its fullest degree and brought the spark to all those she touched. She had an infectious smile that went hand in hand with her refusal to complain about her situation. Sora was a guardian of her family. She was a tween going on a teen as soon as she was ten. Sora loved doing craft projects including duct tape accessories to go along with her fashion sense and painting. She was also a Make-A-Wish Kid whose wish was to use technology to allow her to share her days with family and friends and to also play hide and seek via Skype on the iPad.
Sora is survived by her parents Gregg and Laura Baker, step-brother Griffin, and sisters Lily and Gabrielle. She is further survived by her grandparents Merida and Dan Baker and Virgil and Sheilah Grenia a great-grandmother Byrdene Baker, and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
