June 10, 1931 - June 14, 2021
Mrs. Marguerite Bailey, of Dalton, passed away on Monday, June 14, 2021, just days after celebrating her 90th birthday. Born in Pittsfield, MA, on June 10, 1931, the daughter of the late William and Bessie Bonney Lyman, she graduated from the former Dalton High School with the class of 1949. Before becoming a mother, Marguerite worked for the former Schaeffer Eaton Paper Mill, where she met her husband, the late Gordon Bailey. Marguerite’s family was of utmost importance to her, and she strove to see that each of their needs were met with nothing but love and care. After raising her children at home, upon re-entering the workforce, Marguerite worked primarily in the food service industry until her retirement. Among many things, Marguerite loved being outdoors. She especially enjoyed nature’s beauty while going for walks and when traveling. While Marguerite appreciated all of God’s creatures, both great and small, she was particularly fond of cats. Marguerite was predeceased by her beloved husband of 58 years, Gordon P. Bailey, whom she married on March 25, 1961. Gordon passed away on September 24, 2019. Marguerite is survived by her sons, Jeffrey Bailey (Jennifer) of Windsor, MA, Thomas Bailey of Pittsfield MA, and Brian Bailey (Catherine Fennelly) of Pittsfield, MA. She leaves behind her three grandchildren, Jonathan, Phoebe, and Phineas, her brother-in-law, Philip Bukowski, as well as her nieces, nephews and many cousins. Besides her parents and husband, Marguerite was predeceased by her two brothers, William F. Lyman and Donald F. Lyman. She was also predeceased by her sisters-in-law, Joyce Shook and Beverly Bailey and her brother-in-law, Edward Shook. Marguerite’s family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the staff of Craneville Place for their outstanding kindness and loving care throughout these difficult times.
