|Birth: ||Dec., 1869|
Mrs. Bessie Michener Baily died at St. Frances' Hospital, Pittsburgh, Pa., September 22, 1906, at 9:15 a.m. in her 37th year. Mrs. Baily had been sick at her home for several weeks and as she did not improve was taken to the hospital for treatment. She was not benefitted, however, and grew gradually weaker until death relieved her suffering.
When but a child of two years, she was taken into the home of John W. Dearth, deceased, of Luzerne Township, Fayette County, and remained in this home until she grew into young womanhood. She was treated as one of his children, was educated by him and was for several years a successful teacher in Luzerne Township public schools.
Nine years ago, she married Mr. Lloyd Baily, a successful farmer, near Carmichaels and became the mother of three bright little girls aged 7, 3 1/2 and 2 years. Her kind and devoted husband was at her bedside when death came. Before marriage she was a member of Hopewell C.P. Church and was an active worker in Sabbath School. When she married Mr. Baily, her membership was transferred to the Presbyterian Church of Carmichaels, where her husband was a member, and had since been interested in it's welfare.
She leaves many friends and relatives to mourn her loss, but none feel it so deeply as the devoted husband and three little girls. The sympathy of the entire community goes out to them in their sad bereavement. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. James Hamilton of the C.P. Church, at her late home, Monday, September 24. A large number of friends and relatives gathered to pay a last tribute to her memory. Interment in the Carmichaels Cemetery. The pall-bearers were Harry, William, Earl, Frank, Henry and Joseph Baily.
