Pearl A. Bailey
Pearl A. Bailey, 92, of Hermitage, passed away peacefully surrounded by family, on Wednesday (Oct. 16, 2019).
Pearl was born in Masury to Silas and Alberta Baxter.
A 1945 graduate of Hickory High School, Pearl went to work at Westinghouse supporting the war effort. She retired from the Hermitage School District Business Office in 1989.

She was a member of the United Methodist Women and was especially proud of her work with the grief support group she founded. Always keeping busy, she also worked many days at the Prince of Peace Center in Farrell and the Hermitage YMCA.
She is survived by: a son, Doane Bailey (Karole); two daughters, Jeanne Deiger and Sandra Rowe (Charles); sister, Olive Bair; grandchildren, Krista Stevens (Matthew), Scott Bailey (Andrea), Aaron Bailey (Karin Lilliedahl), Jessica Mitchell (Michael), Jordan Rowe; and nine great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by: her parents; and Dan, her husband of 55 years.
