Betty B. Bailey
Posted on October 4, 2021
Mrs. Betty B. Bailey, age 90 of Robinson, IL passed away Thursday October 8, 2020 at 1:00 AM at Crawford Memorial Hospital, Robinson, IL.
Born March 2, 1930, in Gary, IN she was the daughter of Fred and Mary (Dressback) Newsome. When Betty was a youngster, she attended one-room schools and, as was the case back then, what was being taught to the older children, the younger ones learned as well. For that reason, Betty was "moved" up a grade level which enabled her to graduate Oblong Township High School in 1947, a year ahead of her normal graduation date. On August 6, 1950 she married Donald Keith Bailey and he preceded her in death April 30, 2014.
Betty was a homemaker and mother to three children, Kevin Bailey and wife Becky, Harrisville, UT, Trevor Bailey and wife Pari, Belview, MN and Ginger Doucet and companion, Robert Henico, Robinson, IL. She is also survived by five grandchildren, Daniel Griffith and Meta Kane, Corona, CA, Taira and Tim Lindsay, Flat Rock, IL, James Richard Griffith, Harrisville, UT, Tony and Tina Doucet, Robinson, IL, Pari Elizabeth Bailey, Belview, MN; eight great grandchildren, Maddison Griffith, Harrisville, UT, Krista Doucet, Robinson, IL, Jacob Booher, Flat Rock, IL, Isaac Booher, Flat Rock, IL, Kaylin M. Doucet, Robinson, IL, Ella Rae Lindsay, Flat Rock, IL, Jack Daniel Griffith, Corona, CA, Lauren Fiore, Corona, CA along with a brother and sister-in-law, Robert L. and Loretta Newsome, Oblong, IL. and a brother-in-law and spouse, Tom & Pauline Bailey, Robinson, IL.
Preceding her in death were her parents and her beloved husband of 64 years, Donald Keith Bailey.
