In compliance with the City, County and Florida State Law, Social Distance is also required.


If when you give the best of your service,
Telling the world that the Savior is come;
Be not dismayed when men don't believe you;
He understands; and say, "Well done."
Oh when I come to the end of my journey,
Weary of life and the battle is won;
Carrying the staff and the cross of redemption,
He'll understand and say, "Well done."

In humble submission to the Will of God, the management and staff of Christian Memorial Chapel, LLC, sorrowfully announce the earthly departure of Mrs. Leola Baker, 98, of Marianna, Florida.

She was born on June 14, 1922 in Caryville, Florida.

She was preceded in death by her parents, James and Maggie L. Johnson Hightower; her sibings; Millard Hightower,  Betty Hightower, Samuel Hightower and Willie James Hightower.

She is survived by her nephew and caretaker, Minister Eric Hayes and Lucinda Baker both of Marianna, Florida; special great niece, Monika "Sweet P" Ming, Ministers Gwendolyn and Julius Warren of Melbourne, Florida, Ministers Betty and Morris Brown of Texas, David and Catrina Williams of Jacksonville, Florida, Roy Hayes, James Hayes of Marianna, Florida and Leola and Oliver Williams of Two Egg, Florida; a godson: Isaac Williams; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

On Monday morning, July 20, 2020, God dispatched the Angel of Death to relay a message to Leola saying "I see your road is rough, and the hill is getting too steep. Come rest your head upon My breast, your soul I will keep."

Please keep the  family in prayer, as we reflect the gracious memories.
