Tau Kappa Epsilon Mourns Loss of Amanda Baker

TKE has lost a cherished member of our family. Amanda Baker, wife of Chief Information Officer Alex Baker, passed away on the evening of February 5, having been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in October of 2017.

Amanda has been an active member of the Greek community since joining Phi Mu during her time at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis. Amanda was a popular figure and a familiar face at events around TKE Nation. Amanda graduated from Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis with a bachelor from the Kelley School of Business and a certificate in Event Management. She was employed at PNC Bank for more than ten years.

Our hearts go out to the Baker family during this difficult time. Amanda is survived by her husband, Alex, and their son, Riley. Her impact on the lives of those who crossed paths with her is immeasurable and her light and vibrancy will be forever missed.

The Baker family has established the Amanda Baker Scholarship Fund with Amanda’s women’s fraternity, Phi Mu. Amanda served as a long-time Phi Mu volunteer, dedicating her efforts as a member of the Rho Alpha Advisory Council and most recently leading as president of the Indianapolis Alumnae Chapter. Together with her beloved husband Alex, Amanda wishes to create a legacy of empowering women to change the world through science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). If you would like to support the family during this time, please consider contributing toward Amanda’s vision. We are committed to achieving the $25,000 endowment level this scholarship requires.

To donate, visit and select the Amanda Baker Scholarship Fund from the drop-down menu.

In addition, the TKE Educational Foundation and the Professional Staff will be purchasing bricks in Amanda’s honor to place in the Courtyard at the Offices of the Grand Chapter and Phi Mu’s Headquarters.
