Catherine Haviland Baker, 55, of Bristol, died Sunday, December 15, 2019 at John Dempsey Hospital in Farmington, CT. She was born June 14, 1964 in Manhattan, daughter of the late Henry Martyn Baker, Jr. and Joan (Thompson) Baker and was raised in West Simsbury, CT. She was a graduate of Watkinson School and Westbrook College (now New England College), Class of 1985, having received her Associates Degree in General Studies. Cathy's career in insurance included work at Travelers, QBE North America, and most recently with NextClaim Recoveries.
She enjoyed reading, country music, beaches, lighthouses and hot air ballooning. What Cathy cherished most in life, however, was the time she spent in laughter and love with family and friends.

She is survived by her brother, Stuart G. Baker, his wife Tracey L. Cross-Baker and their children Douglas and Chloe of Ticonderoga, NY and numerous cousins. She loved them all dearly.

A memorial service will be celebrated at 3:00 PM on Saturday, December 21st at the Vincent Funeral Home, 120 Albany Turnpike (Route 44), Canton CT. Her family will receive friends prior to the service from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.

Sending prayers during this difficult time.
I worked with Cathy for 13 years at QBE. What I remember about Cathy was she always was the first person to help anyone and everyone. A kind and gentle soul. A caregiver ! Always wanted to make sure new employees felt comfortable and knew where to go and what to do. A special gift she had. She will be missed. I feel so grateful to have had her touched my life.
