Eileen (Mrs. Archer) Baum With the Lord

Eileen Baum went home to be with the Lord Thursday night, July 3, 2008. She was 85 years old.

Eileen was born in Gays Mills, Wisconsin in 1923, moved to Minot, North Dakota and then to Portland, Oregon. In l943, she met the love of her life, Archer Baum, at Multnomah School of the Bible. Their marriage in l944 lasted 61 years.

In l953, Eileen moved to San Diego when Archer became the pastor of the San Diego Grace Brethren Church. In addition to her committment to that ministry, Eileen was active with the Gideons International. Archer died in September of 2005.

Eileen and Archer had three daughters, Rebecca, Colleen and Deborah. She is survived by her sister, Phyllis Whitcher, her daughters Colleen (Mrs. Phil Teran) and Deborah, eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

She will be greatly missed and we look forward to a reunion when Christ returns. A private, family graveside service was held on Tuesday, July 8th, El Camino Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, Bibles may be purchased through Gideons International.
