Born Dec. 10, 1930, in Grantsville, she was the daughter of the late Harry E. and Verna E. (Barr) Miller. She was also preceded in death by her husband of 26 years, Charles Harold "Bill" Bailey, in 2000; three siblings, Mary Bluebaugh, Louise Billmeyer, and half-brother, Burl Willy, who was killed in World War II.

She owned and operated Beauty Heaven in Grantsville for eight years and Modern Hair Care in Keyser, W.Va., for 25 years.
"Our mother was a very good mother and in her first marriage, she put up with spousal abuse for the sake of her children and lived in fear. She was a very good business woman and was nice to everyone. She will be missed."
Patsy liked to quilt at Grantsville Senior Center, enjoyed taking trips, painting and spending time on her farm.
