January 28, 1941 - February 2, 2020 Anita Linda Baker Fitzgerald, 79, of Statesville, died Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020, at her home. She was born in the Territory Of Hawaii, Jan. 28, 1941, to Charles Kahalehili Baker and Margaret Rowe Baker. Linda was a beautiful gift, given at birth, to her dearest Uncle and Anty. In Hawaiian culture and custom, hnai is a gift of love and an honor to both families. The closest tradition to this in the western culture is adoption. Linda then became the link that bridged two brothers' families into one. She was preceded in death by her husband, Don, her hanai'd parents, Edward and Anita Linda Baker; and her birth parents, Charles and Margaret Baker of Honolulu, Oahu, Territory of Hawaii. She is survived by four daughters, Benita Chung, Tammy (Jamie) Waiwaiole, Rene Fitzgerald, and Lani Fitzgerald; son, Donald Fitzgerald Jr., 12 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
