Elizabeth Bailey of Glen Mills

Holding the hand of her husband of 70 years, Elizabeth (Betty) Marcella Bailey of Glen Mills, died peacefully on Sunday, Dec. 19. Betty was born on July 13, 1930, to the late William and Margaret Flanagan. After graduating from Elkton High School in Elkton, Md., Betty worked as an administrative assistant for the Chrysler Corporation in Newark, Del. She married Rodger F. Bailey, with whom she shared 70 years of devoted life and love.

Elizabeth Bailey

Betty shared her gifts of service, love, and hospitality with friends, neighbors, and family. Anyone who entered Betty’s circle was embraced and cared for. Betty cherished her card-playing friends and neighbors. She enjoyed cooking and sharing meals, flower arranging, listening well to friends and family, and supporting her grandchildren in their artistic, athletic, and musical endeavors.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her sisters, Margaret Schnatz, Alice Aurig, Sandra Longenecker; her brother, William Flanagan; and her daughter, Lucinda Bailey. She is survived by her beloved husband, Rodger; her children, Gwen DiMarco (John), Franki Burch (Chuck), Faith Dupuis (Vic), and Rodger B. Bailey (Becky); as well as her sisters Clara Lear and Mary DiVirgilio. Her legacy is beautifully reflected in the lives of her 14 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and many beloved nieces and nephews. God’s gracious love has been shared through Betty’s life of service – “Aunt Betty,” “Mom,” “Nan.”

The entire family is deeply grateful for the extraordinary care and service of each and every caregiver who poured love into Betty and Rodger’s lives.

There will be a memorial service planned at a later time.  In lieu of flowers, a donation in Betty’s honor can be made to Meals on Wheels of Chester County, 404 Willow Brook Lane, West Chester, PA 19382.  Please designate the Kennett Square branch. Rodger and Betty have truly appreciated their faithful service. Arrangements by the Kuzo Funeral Home, Kennett Square; please visit Mrs. Bailey’s online memorial by going to www.kuzoandfoulkfh.com.
