Harmony was born February 5, 1918 in Las Animas, Colorado. She lived here in Colorado all her life, mainly in Englewood. She was the second daughter (Hope and Harmony) born to Ethel & Ernest Rowe. Her father died when she was two. Ethel remarried Walter Crites and lived in Trinidad where Ethel ran a boarding house. Sisters Loyall and Lola were added to their family. Walter was the only "Dad" she ever knew, and was a great one! The family eventually moved to south Denver where Harmony graduated from South High School in 1936. She then went to beauty school.
She met Gordon H. Bailey, married and moved to Florence, Colorado. Their son, Gordon T. Bailey (Terry), was born in Canon City, November 30th, 1938. When Terry was two, they moved to Denver and eventually to Englewood. During WWII, Harmony worked for Remington Arms, putting primers in 50 caliber machine gun bullets to aid the war effort. She worked as a beautician after that. When Terry was young, the family would vacation in the Gunnison area, fishing at Iola and Sapinero - all under Blue Mesa Reservoir now! Seventeen years after Terry was born, Stacy (Perkins) came along on March 26, 1956, just as her brother was going off to college.
Harmony had numerous hobbies and talents, including oil painting, designing and sewing clothing, knitting and crocheting, and upholstering. Her favorite times were spent at her cabin near Bailey, Colorado with family and friends.
Besides her husband and two children, Harmony's life was blessed with five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
