Sadie M. Bailey, 87, of Danbury, Connecticut, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 26th in Hollywood, Florida.
Sadie was born on September 8th, 1926 in Boston Massachusetts to Joseph and Mary Murad, and was the eldest of eight children. Her family moved to Danbury in 1942 where she attended Danbury High School, and remained her entire life. She married Carl Bailey Sr., and as both of their parents were born in Lebanon, became involved with St. Anthony Maronite Catholic Church, where they both were engaged in church activities throughout their lives. Sadie was a social butterfly with many close friends, including her seven siblings, Peter Murad, Mitchell Murad, Jeanette Bowman, and Sophie Gradia, all still living, and Louie Murad, Anna Knapp, and Rose Murad who predeceased her. She was on the go, literally until her final day attending concerts, dining as often as someone would take her, and engaging anyone and everyone she met in conversation. To know her was to like her, and wherever she went, people would see the happy, little "sitto" and feel a part of her family. She enjoyed preparing Lebanese meals, attending yard and white elephant sales, and all church related activities. In addition to her siblings, Sadie also leaves behind three children, Dr. Richard Bailey, Carl Bailey Jr, and Karen Tarte, as well as five grandchildren, Seth and Bliss Bailey, Daniel Bailey, Aimee and Sara Tarte and a great grandson, Auroran Re. She also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, in laws, and great nieces and nephews. The family will receive friends in St. Anthony Maronite Catholic Church, 17 Granville Ave., Danbury on Tuesday, September 2, 2014 from 4 PM to 6:30 PM. The Liturgy of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday evening at 6:30 PM in St. Anthony Maronite Catholic Church with the Rev. Naji J. Kiwan officiating. The Mercy Meal in Sadie's memory will be served immediately following the liturgy in St. Anthony's Church Hall. Interment will take place in St. Peter Cemetery, Section 19 on Wednesday September 3, 2014, at 10 AM. Attendees should go directly to the cemetery located on Lake Avenue Ext., Danbury, CT.
