On August 2, 2018, Christ fulfilled His promise and called Jeanne Bailey, 64 of Carlisle, IA, home to His side. Jeanne fought a 3 year long courageous battle with breast cancer.
Jeanne was born January 21, 1954. She was married to her husband, Ken, for 45 years and together had 2 sons.
Jeanne was an ornery, understanding, and loving woman that loved her friends and family. She enjoyed trying new things and going to new places with a willingness to do crazy and fun things. Especially on the trips with the “Grannies gone Wild”. Jeanne portrayed her faith and hope in Jesus Christ through her love and understanding of people from where they are in life. She was always sure to tell her husband, kids and grandbabies that she loved them.
Jeanne worked for a fantastic company, RPS, in West Des Moines. We as a family want to thank Gallagher/RPS for being so good to Mom and our family.
She is survived by her husband, Ken Bailey of Carlisle; her kids Nick and Michele Bailey of Carlisle; Jason and Jackie Bailey of Carlisle; grandbabies, Jeani, Abigail, Ethanial, Max, and Malaki; brother, Les and Delores Wacht. She was preceded in death by her parents Wayne and Jean Wacht.
The family would like to thank the nurses and aides at Methodist Hospital oncology floor for the compassionate care they provided. We also want to thank the Kavanaugh House for the care and comfort provided to Mom in her last days.
Ladies! Don’t forget to get a 3D Mammogram. It added 3 years to my life. - Jeanne
