Emogene Romine Bailey, age 89, of Bakersfield, California, passed away on March 8, 2018 in Meridian, Idaho, with her daughter by her side.
She was a great soul who came from a poor Oklahoma family during the dust bowl era. Always holding to noble and high ideals she educated herself and no one would have suspected from that unpromising background that such a gentle, cultured ,and well spoken lady would emerge. A hard worker and motherwho instilled early in the lives of her 9 children a love of reading, values of character and love of spiritual things.
Survived by her children Donald Leland Bailey (Hat Bailey), Patricia Lynn Bailey Cooper and Gordon, Mary Ellen Bailey Morgan and Gus, Thomas Aaron Bailey, Elizabeth Ann Bailey Waite and Greg, David Sherod Bailey and Theresa, Samuel Lucien Bailey and Michelle, Daniel Kevin Bailey and Laurie, Mark Dana Bailey and Cherie, 39 grandchildren, 100 great grandchildren, and 3 great-great grandchildren.
Preceded in death by her beloved eternal husband Donald Perry Bailey, her parents Emmett Washington & Bessie Ivan Romine, and brothers EL, Travis and Bill Jr. Romine.
Believing in Heavenly Father’s plan of salvation, we know there was a joyous reunion as she passed through the veil, and look forward to the time when we are all together again as a family.
