Susan S. Bailey, 67, of Westmore died peacefully at home on June 27, 2013, after a 15-year, hard-fought battle with multiple sclerosis.
She was born in Yonkers, New York, on July 23, 1945, beloved daughter of the late James T. and Edith R. Schofield of Westmore. She attended public schools in Greenwich, Connecticut. She received a full scholarship from Smith College, graduating in 1967. She worked for over 35 years as a highly respected senior systems analyst and programmer, starting her computer career long before there was an Internet.
An avid reader, and NFL Patriots fan, she also enjoyed playing the piano, sewing, boating, fishing, and kayaking.
Adventurous, avant-garde, an amazing woman with an incomparable sense of humor, she had both of her children in Latin America. Her red hair was her crowning glory. She will be missed by many for a very long time.
She is survived by her husband Ralph Bailey of Westmore; her daughter Lynn Witty of Newton Center, Massachusetts; her son Ken Bailey of Daniel Island, South Carolina; her five grandchildren: Jacob, Luke, Ethan Henry, Caroline, and Lauren; and by her brother James F. Schofield of Santa Cruz, California.
A memorial service was held in Connecticut on July 1, at the Marlborough Congregational Church. Interment was at the Lake View Cemetery in Westmore.
Should friends desire, contributions in her memory may be made to the MS Society or the Visiting Nurses Association.
