To meet Betty Bailey was to love Betty Bailey. I first met her in 1983 when my daughter Sheila married her son Mark. She was a very loved individual and will be missed by everyone who knew her. My prayers are with the Bailey family at this time, which includes the grandchildren and great grandchildren we shared.
