Condolences to the Gae Bailey Family. I have wonderful memories of her always friendly smile and inviting hospitality. Years ago Gae taught my mother (Lynda Jarvis) some canning techniques and they become friends for years to come. My father Jr. Jarvis used to visit Scott and Gae routinely where Scott would cut his hair on the front porch weather permitting. Scott also was a friendly soul, a master gardener and basket weaver. Marty and Joyce, my thoughts are with you. Your parents were gems.

So sad to hear of this. Edith was a sister to my deceased Aunt Ernestine Hoover.
Edith was from a large family that lived on Siers Run at Minnora. I remember fishing with
her brothers Jake, Hubert [Hub], Jim, and Rex.
Again I am so sorry to hear of this. She was a sweet kind hard working lady.

Gae was a sweet, kind lady with a wonderful smile and welcoming spirit. It was always a joy to visit with her. And son John was best friends with my husband Buddy Davisson when they were growing up. (Buddy died in March of this year) but I am sure he would send his memories and thoughts and prayers too to the family. Buddy thought Gae was a neat "second mom" and neighbor. My thoughts are with the family and hope you find comfort and peace as you CELEBRATE Gae's life.
