Jeraldine Bailey

February 28, 1937 — October 5, 2019

Our beautiful mother, Jeraldine Bailey, 82 of Switzer, WV went to meet our heavenly father on Saturday, October 5th, 2019 at her residence with her children by her side.

She was greeted in heaven by her parents, Woodrow and Opal Normal Fleming, her favorite nephew Randall Woodrow Frye, a great nephew Christopher Altizer, a great niece Jessica Lynn Small, and a precious great great nephew Drew Pringle, and one daughter by love Shelly Dyess.

Those left to cherish her memory includes her son Jeffrey (Sylvia) Bailey of St.Albans, WV, her daughters, Lisa Bailey of Charleston, WV, Caren (Eddie) Keffer and Elizabeth Bailey all of Switzer, WV, three grandchildren, Jennifer Fletcher of Logan, WV, Kristen Bailey of Javea, Spain and Tyler (Vicki) Hood of Poca, WV, five great grandchildren whom she referred to as “the stars in her sky”, Braydon McClung and Dyllon Codispoti of Logan, WV, Hope, Daniel, and Arianna Hood of Poca, WV, two sisters whom she dearly loved, Phyllis Boyd of Hurricane, WV and Irene Frye of Switzer, WV, five beloved nieces and nephews, Oscar “Speedy” Frye III of Switzer, WV, Ralph Jordan of Hurricane, WV, Rose (Jeff) Defries and Pam (Don Sorrell) Small of Cross Lanes, WV, and Joy (Eddie) Talip of Micco, WV, one daughter by love Lisa Rainwater of Logan, and many great nieces, nephews, and friends too numerous to mention.

She was a proud retired nurse from Logan Park Care Center to which she sought after her dream job at the age of 44. She enjoyed taking care of her patients and her family. She lived her life to care for her children and grandchildren. Her faith in Christ was unwavering. Through all her trials, she always said, “God is in control.” And that is what she truly believed.

Our family would like to give a special thank you to Kindred at Home and Dignity Hospice for all your care, concern, and compassion.
