Mary L. Bailey
Mary L. Bailey, 75, of Milton, born Aug. 8, 1940 in Pine Grove Mills, Pa., loving mother of Lorna (Bob) Miller, Donna (Dave) Colley, and Matthew Bailey, has joined her husband, Donald, in Heaven on Friday, April 8, 2016.
On Sept. 6, 1957, she married Donald. She was predeceased by her husband Donald Bailey; parents, Harry and Bessie (Brosious) Stuck; and brother, Harry "Buddy" Stuck.
Mary's grandchildren and stepgrandchildren, Joshua (Jocelin) Bailey, Quinn Ahearn, Brian Miller, Geoffrey Scheller, David (Whitney) Scheller, Kathryn (Anderson) Joseph, James (Alena) Colley, and Sean Colley will tell you the best thing about visiting Memmie's or as her only granddaughter called her MiMi, there was always something good to eat, and a can of Coke to drink.
Mary loved to talk about and spend time with her 10 great-grandchildren, Sylvia, Keegan, Riley, Amelia, Maxwell, Daniel, Donald, Dylan, Nadia, and John. Visits from them brightened her day like nothing else.
Her siblings were her best friends and confidants, Shirley (Jay) Belford, Dallas (Deb) Stuck, and Bessie (Dave) Hetzendorf. They all share the love of cooking and sharing meals with family which they learned from their mom and their Memmie. They have all enjoyed passing this tradition on to the next generation. Their many shenanigans growing up continued on in their adult lives and the stories are shared with fondness and laughter to anyone who will listen. The never-ending list of nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews whom she rejoiced in their life accomplishments and successes kept her busy. She was proud to be their Aunt Mary.
Please join us for a celebration of a wonderful life and to rejoice her being pain free at 11 a.m. Tuesday at Trinity Lutheran Church, 100 Mahoning St., Milton. A viewing will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. prior to the service.
Interment will follow in Orchard Hills Cemetery and Memorial Park, Shamokin Dam.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Mary's memory may be made to the American Cancer Society.
Arrangements are by Spitler Funeral Home, Montoursville.
