Betty Logena Wallin Bailey was born January 12, 1927 in Pocatello, Idaho to Enoch August and Alma Logena Constance Jentzsch Wallin. Mother brought with her pieces of heaven in her heart and sunshine in her smile that she gave away throughout her life.
She passed away peacefully at her home on June 14, 2010 on a day brightened by roses and sunshine. She resided at 2833 South 2750 East in East Millcreek, Utah at the time of her death.
Always an active member of the LDS Church, Mother married Robert Amos (Bob) Bailey on May 8, 1947 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple after waiting for him through World War II. They spent sixty-two years together building a home where mother was the heart, giving us the important things in life prior to dad's passing in 2009. Loving us all was her lifelong work.
She graduated from Granite High School in Salt Lake City, UT and went to college years later, graduating Cum Laude from BYU's School of Nursing.
Her sweet smile and gentle touch brought peace to parent and babe alike as she worked at the LDS Hospital Labor and Delivery unit for many years. Betty's most enjoyable times were spent with her family and friends camping, traveling or just playing cards.
She loved roses and chocolates. For many years holidays were filled with homemade chocolates and caramels that she lovingly shared with family, friends and neighbors. Always taking time to say thank you, her gentleness, kindness, and humor will be missed.
She is survived by her daughters Sue (Steve) Feil and Marylu (Dave) Langford, sons Robert, Michael, Bryan (Angelica) and Douglas (Sue) Bailey, thirteen grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren and her sisters Dorothy Schettler (Gordon), Karen Barlow (Nathan) and Kaye Daw (Steve, deceased). She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother (Murmur), and great-grandmother. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, brothers, Richard and Ray Wallin, and daughter-in-law, Gwenneth Bailey.
