Pisgah Chapel in Gillette, Wyoming; Pastor Dan Morgan will officiate, and following the funeral the burial will take place at Mt Pisgah Cemetery. Following the burial, everyone will return to the Mt. Pisgah Chapel for fellowship at 4pm. Kenna was born April 19, 1966, in Gillette, Wyoming to Kenneth Harvey and Susan Marie (Willis) Baker. Kenna thrived in her youth, and during her time at Campbell County High School she excelled in academics and cheerleading. After graduating from high school, she went on to attend school at University of Wyoming. Once she was completed with school at University of Wyoming, she moved back to Gillette where she would live out the rest of her life. Kenna had two favorite hobbies: bowling and fishing. Over her lifetime, she bowled in multiple leagues, and made many friends not at only at the bowling alley, but everywhere she went. Kenna also loved fishing, because much of her time fishing was done with her parents. Just like her mother Susan, they both thoroughly enjoyed bowling and fishing, and they made it a point to see who could out fish her Dad. One other side to Kenna was her sense of adventure. For those who were close with her, you would know that one of her favorite experiences in life was sky diving. Kenna was known for doing the things she enjoyed, and while her pursuit of adventure was not limited to sky diving, it was most certainly her favorite. Kenna was known for her caring heart, and she was adored by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. She exuded kindness, and if you were to talk to her friends and loved ones, they would tell you that she was one of the nicest, most genuine people they had the pleasure of knowing. Kenna Baker will be remembered for her gentle heart, humility, and spontaneous sense of adventurous. She had a kind heart.
Kenna is survived by her father, Kenneth Baker, her brothers, Jeff and John Baker, and children, Alex and Austin Smock. She is preceded in death by her mother, Susan Baker.
