Carlotte Marie was the daughter of Walter Neff (see link below), and Mary Mechtildes (Brown)Bolsinger. She was the third born of nine children, (4 brothers and four sisters).

Charlotte Marie (Bolsinger) Bailey, a longtime resident of Greensburg, died Saturday, Feb. 12, 2000, in Westmoreland Regional Hospital, Greensburg, after a brief illness. She was the wife of Dr. Louis J.C. Bailey, who preceded her in death in 1975. She is survived by two daughters, Jacqueline Bailey and Cynthia Bailey Miller, both of Massachusetts; two grandchildren, David J. Miller and Cheryl Miller Favale, also of Massachusetts; seven great-grandchildren; and her dear nieces, Sally Sweeney of Pittsburgh and Charlotte Smith of Massachusetts and their families. In the early part of her life, Charlotte graduated from Duquesne University, where she obtained her degree in nursing. She worked as a registered nurse in Philadelphia and did flood relief work for the American Red Cross in Ohio. Charlotte was a longtime member and past president of the D.A.R. (See father's link below to find her patriot ancestor), Medical Auxiliary, the Friday Club, College Club and the Greensburg Garden Club. She was also a longtime member and enthusiastic supporter of the Westmoreland Museum of Fine Arts. In 1995, she was the recipient of the Distinguished Arts and Community Leadership Award from the Greensburg Area Cultural Council. Charlotte had a lifelong love of gardening and was an expert on ``old'' roses; she was also a landscape design judge. Fishing, both at home and at her summer home on French River, Canada, traveling the world, and reading were among her interests. Well into her 70s and 80s she took up many arts and crafts, including stained glass window, pottery, and watercolor painting. Charlotte had a passion for life and believed in living it to the fullest. She will be greatly missed by her large extended family and her many friends. A Memorial Mass in celebration of her life will be celebrated at the Blessed Sacrament Cathedral, Greensburg, Friday at 10 a.m. Charlotte would prefer that donations in her memory be made to the Westmoreland Museum of Fine Arts, or the Greensburg Library, in lieu of flowers.
