Dorothy Mae Bailey, 80, of Olathe KS., passed away surrounded by her loving family on Tuesday, March 29, 2016. She will forever be remembered as a devoted wife, loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to everyone she met. Family and friends were her passion and delight.
Dorothy was born on May 18, 1935 in Kincaid, Kansas to Nelson Albert and Henrietta Irene (Eisnman) Mott. She met the love of her life in the Fall of 1951 at a USO dance in Olathe. Dorothy and Virgil Wayne Bailey were married on July 18, 1952 in Paola, Kansas. Dorothy immediately started on her new role as mother to Wayne Jr., Joleen, Randy Jay and Sherri Lynn. She worked in food production for the Olathe School District. Sharing her culinary and quilting skills with family and friends was her way of showing her love. For those who were blessed to receive one of her quilts, treasure it and know it was made with pure love. The next time you sit down to watch a sporting event, remember to cheer on the Royals, Chiefs and KU. She will be watching alongside with you.
Dorothy is preceded in death by her parents Nelson and Henrietta Mott. She is survived by her husband of 63 years Virgil Wayne Bailey of the home, her children, Virgil Wayne Bailey Jr. (Lisa), Randy Bailey, Joleen McClintock (Billy) and Sherri Grant (Clay).
