Helen Forrest, 82, who sang with the big bands of Artie Shaw and Benny Goodman, died Sunday of heart failure. She was "the most famous of all the big band singers" and recorded more than 500 songs, said Alan Eichler, her publicist.

Born Helen Fogel in Atlantic City, N.J., she had several well-known recordings, including "All the Things You Are" with Shaw, "The Man I Love," with Goodman, and "I Don't Want to Walk Without You" and "I Had the Craziest Dream," with Harry James.

Joel Baker Sr., 94, who designed several surgical techniques and was chief of surgery at the Virginia Mason Medical Center for more than 30 years, died July 4.
