Obituary Condolences

Gloria M. Bailey, 84, passed away on Wednesday, June 18, 2008, in Alamogordo. She was born Oct. 17, 1923 in Madisonville, Ohio, to Fred and Violet (Propheter) Uebel. Gloria grew up in Madisonville where she met her husband Larry and spent the next 40 years as an Army wife.
Survivors include her daughter, Luana Haley, and granddaughter, Darlene, of Alamogordo; son, Lawrence Bailey Jr. and wife, Michelle, and granddaughters, Vanessa, Ginger, Serena, and six great-grandchildren of Colorado Springs; son, Loren Lee Bailey and wife, Song, and grandson, Samuel, of Lawton, Okla.
Gloria was the last of the Uebel/Propheter branch of the family of Madisonville, surviving them by 30 plus years.
Awaiting her arrival are her Heavenly Father, her husband of 53 years, Larry Bailey Sr., who preceded her in death in 2000; her parents, Violet and Fredrick Uebel; her grandparents, William and May; sisters, Gertrude and Doris, and a daughter, Peggy Ann, who died at birth.
Recovering from an illness, her passing was still unexpected though peaceful. No services will be held at this time. Her wish was to be cremated and laid to rest next to her husband in Monte Vista Cemetery.
Many thanks are given to her nurses and attendants at the Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center and Cara Arena for all the special love and attention given to our loved one. Bless you all.
The Bailey family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the cremation arrangements. Cremation will take place locally at PCS.
