Ted Bailie, originally from Skiff, AB, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 11, 2014 in Calgary. Ted was proud to serve overseas on the HMCS Minas minesweeper during World War II. Shortly after the war, Ted returned home and met and married the local school teacher, Pat Doolan, in 1947. Ted and Pat purchased the family farm, where they raised their family of four daughters. They retired to Calgary when Ted turned 65. Ted was an active member of the local community, Foremost Legion, Elk and Moose Lodges. He was an avid hunter and superb athlete specifically enjoying baseball, hockey and curling with mealtimes revolving around the playoffs. He is survived by his wife Patricia and their four children Maureen (Leonard), Joan, Shiela (Tom) from Calgary; and Gail (Shane) from Revelstoke; ten grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren. The family wish to thank the staff and caregivers at the Colonel Belcher Normandy Unit and Dr. Obanji for their wonderful care and attention to Ted during these last two years.
