Rebecca (Becky) Marie Bailey-Yale
2.15.56 ~ 3.10.17
Becky passed away peacefully in her home in Auburn, she was 61 years old. She was born February 15, 1956 in Neenah Wisconsin. Her family moved to Washington in 1958, where they settled in Renton, WA. She attended school at Cascade Elementary where she met her life-long and very best friend, Cheri. They recently celebrated their 50th year-long friendship by taking a trip to the Atlantis in Nassau, Bahamas. Becky also attended Nelson Middle School in Renton and graduated from Lindbergh High School in 1974. She loved music, especially the Beatles. Growing up, Becky was very theatrical and enjoyed putting on shows in front of her family. She and her father would perform their favorite singer, Al Jolson. Becky loved her children more than life itself. Her strongest attribute was being a devoted mother to her four children (and her two precious Yorkies, Sidle and Grissom.) She was always supporting her children in activities like soccer, baseball, ballet, acting, choir, and even voice lessons. Becky was one of the brightest stars that lit the world. She was also a wonderful daughter and sister to her family and a dedicated mother and grandmother.
Becky is preceded in death by her mother, Audrey Bailey and survived by her father Neil Bailey and four children; Ann Marie, Lucas (Susanne), Jacob, and Micah; her grandchildren Desmond, Devin, Caleb, and Annabella; and her siblings Fred, Randy (Marguerite), Marguerite (Jeff), and Nancy.
There will be a funeral service at Haven of Rest Chapel in Gig Harbor on April 1st, at 1:00 pm. A graveside service will follow as well as a private celebration of life.
