“Thank you so much for all your help with the funeral planning and the actual funeral. Everything was beautiful and could not have been more special or gone any smoother. It was comforting for our family to know that everything was going to be taken care of and that we would do my father-in-law justice with a very beautiful funeral. Thank you so much for that peace-of-mind. We could not have been more pleased with how everything turned out. You all are truly wonderful at what you do. I would never go anywhere else! (Although I’m hoping not to have to use your services for a very long time!) Thank you so much for everything.”

August 17, 1924 - January 02, 2013

Eleanor E. Bailey, age 88 of Plainfield, IL passed away on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013 at Edward Hospital in Naperville, IL. Born Aug. 17, 1924 in Point Pleasant, WV, the daughter of the late Revna and Vada (nee Lewis) King. The third of eight children, she graduated from Wahama High School in Mason, WV with the Class of 1943.

Eleanor was a talented and devoted mother to two daughters, Sheila (Ernest) Rossi of Naperville, IL and Sharon (Glen) Bates of Kennebuckport, ME. Eleanor adored babies and was a loving and devoted grandmother to Hilary Bates of Morris Plains, NJ; Michael (Paula) Rossi of Aurora, IL; Todd Rossi of Chicago, IL; Megan Bates of Boston, MA and David Rossi of Idaho Falls, ID, and to her great-granddaughters, Raja and Ereni Rossi of Aurora, IL.

She was preceded in death by her parents, a sister Catherine Reynolds and her brothers Revna, Charles and James King. While rearing her daughters, Eleanor served as Roosevelt Elementary School’s PTA President as well as Brownie Scout Leader. Her sewing talents were most notably displayed in the lavish and original Halloween and dance costumes she created for her daughters on through to their wedding trousseaus. Eleanor served on many committees and as a deacon at the First United Presbyterian Church and worked for a number of years in retail at The Hub Department Store in Steubenville, OH. Always interested in beauty and art, Eleanor was a dedicated master gardener and a talented painter in oils.
